I noted the absence of "Ray Ray" on the list.
It's very difficult to maintain a criminal enterprise with many people involved, especially when those people are so lacking in education, skill, and character. The only reason it goes as long as it does is because of the lack of character on the part of law enforcement. Finding drugs, dealers and suppliers is extremely easy in Detroit. Enforcement is done on a rather casual basis with the occasional "flare up" of busts.

PS. I wonder what the percentage of cash and drugs was that made it to the evidence room.

I can tell you; IT WASN'T MUCH. Most drug workers for the trap house spots on the sw side, don't carry large volumes of cash. So most of the money actually realised in a days profit earnings, has already been cycled out to the Dealers purse.
Most raids are initiated by busted prostitutes that snitch out dope spots that are doing bad as a trade off for being let go; plus, it helps other spots profit by increasing supply and demand.

I was alluding to the usual "tax" placed on money and drugs by the officers before it gets counted and weighed.

Yeah; well to be realistic, depending on what city it is, allot of the money and product never makes it through processing at the station. It gets lost out on the scene of the crime or misplaced by knowing officers lining their own pockets. I'm from Detroit; and many are on the take. I guess these elements must be taken into consideration when making certain comments about local law enforcement and the real world.

For the feds to scapegoat 18 silverbacks, and not bust the rabbis supplying the silverback cartel, is pretty typical.
