So it's okay to run a business from my home as long as no one knows about it? Hmmmmm, isn't most of the drug dealers already doing this?

All kidding aside, there are successful drug dealing operations going on in F-burg. But, EVERYONE knows where they are happening. They do not operate in secrecy.
Just becuase the FPD chooses to completely ignore the countless successful drug dealing operations, does not mean that they operate without anyone knowing about them.

Why are they so successful?? It is so obvious. On some streets there are traffic jams buying drugs. It goes on and on. The state police have been getting very stressed out as they keep coming up empty.

It seems like some pay offs are taking place as they are getting the heads up before the raids.

Fitchburg needs an FBI headquarters within Fitchburg. Gangs are running this city. There are shootings over drug territories.

The State Police are here undercover. I was just talking to an undercover trooper and he stated it sucks. He has to live in a dumpy apartment. He cannot carry any of his id's, credit cards, etc. He cannot see his wife, kids and has to wear low class clothes.

He drives the "not so" undercover pickup truck with the racks that everyone has already seen on a daily basis stopping a suspect with the hidden police lights activated.

Fear not. Gangs vs. the FPD isn't what is seems. The FPD has documented ties to organized crime resulting from arrests of FPD personal. While it may appear things are running amuck the 'issues' are being investigated by higher and more powerful agencies. Certain situations could even prohibit the FPD from any contact or interaction with certain subjects or suspects.

That undercover commentary is completely false. Obviously your interacting with a deranged individual. This situation is a multi state federal investigation. Having a undercover SP in Fitchburg isn't practical. Its getting down to FITCHBURG VS. DRUGS. Fitchburg is financially dead and under assault by the drug trade. Mayor Wong needs to get out on the front steps and admit its beyond her control instead of bitchin about street lights.

Hey dumb dumb what do you think the State Police Gang Unit is? Do you think they drive around in uniform and marked police cruisers?
Need some help? Rte.2 undercover SP chases drug dealer from Meadowbrook. Suspect shoots at Undercover SP and then crashes car.
Need some more?

You are another example of the stupidity that many Fitchburg residents have. Obviously you have never seen any of the undercover SP officers pulling a suspect over.

I agree. We have read more than one story regarding a drug raid that somehow involves the police storming into the wrong apartment. Meanwhile, the drug dealing simply continues next door, at the apartment it was happening in all along.

It leads me to make one of the following conclusions:

1) The FPD is PI$S Poor at conducting drug investigations.
2) Certain members of the FPD are being paid off by successful drug dealers and gangs.
3) Both of the above statements are true.

So you can open a business just don't advertise it to potential customers? If you are a success you will move to an office building?

So I guess Kev and Gomez's used condom outlet won't be putting up a sign anytime soon.

FPD doesn't do the drug raids, the State Police do.

Where does the Mass State Police get the info leading up to these Drug Raids? On their own, or with input from the FPD?

Rumor has it that the FPD is the only local PD NOT part of the Worcester County Drug Task Force.

Is THAT true? If so, why aren't they?

Put a fence around Fitchburg. Then charge people to get out.
