I love it. "Colon responded by trying to wash his hands with his socks"... Probably the first time in weeks that his hands have been washed. Oh, but I'm sure he's innocent. They should have locked up the crack thief while they were at it.

If this case ever gets to court Mr. Crack Smoker will be intimidated into silence. If the Latin Kings will chase and shoot at you for nonpayment of crack, imagine what they'll do if you try to testify against them in a court of law.

The FPD is in desperate need of a couple of Officers to track gang activity and investigations. It appears that the city is going back to the early 90"s when gangs roamed the streets. But at least back then, we had a couple of Officers that stopped that activity.

I really hope that the city gets this under control....
the shootings and crime have hit an all time high since the early 90's
This effects our local economy and real estate
who will want to move to Fitchburg or open a new store here?
The Latin Kings should sell their crack somewhere else or better yet the DEA
needs to get here fast!!
Wong had better make sure she has a weekly briefing from the new chief

SAD. Don't play if you can pay!

The user / victim should have been arrested to for admitting he was using it and the 2 females should also be brought up on charges for distribution and using too.

Also, shouldn't the female who called the gang members be brought up on charges for calling for this guy to get hurt?

What about the second female for conspiracy and using?

There was an awful lot of opportunty missed during this incident.

It will just happen again. Hope there were no kids in the house where they were smoking. If so, did anyone think to notify DSS?

Did anyone look outside the box?

Emily I agree 100% What IS going to happen to the others involved? And watch how fast they will be back on the street to laugh in the face of the system.
2 people were sitting front of my houseawhile back at 7:30 am smoking crack right out in broad daylight. I called police and they came and arrested them and picked up all the evidence they threw out into the street. A few weeks later I see the same persons name in the paper for being arrested for another charge. What is up with that?

Over crowded prisons is one of the reasons that drug dealers get away with it all.

It is hard for the state to convict everything due to lack of space. I think they all should be convicted and if there is no room in a Massachusetts prison, then they should be transferred out of state to a prison with room.

Then again, Mass taxpayers would have to pay for them wherever they end up, so who knows.

It is frightening to see so many get away with so much. Criminals laugh in the face of justice because we let them!

all i can think about is will Farrel from Talladega nights. being a "nice crack dealer" "you guys want some crack?" but seriously, crack is whack. fpd and the dea need to completely take the focus off pot and go for the crack and heroin problems persisting in Fitchburg.
