I heard about this yesterday, then checked the information from other news sources to verify the information. The Sentinel and Enterprise didn't report anything until today and offered nothing I didn't get elsewhere. I don't need to re-live last year's ice storm; I want today's news by tomorrow at the latest. What is the reason for the existence of this paper? Do they even have reporters, or do the just copy someone else?
The reason for the delay in reporting this "big" story about the "big" drug bust is due to the fact that the papers picked it up from the press release delivered to them by the Atty General's office. That is the office of Martha Coakley, who is running for Sen. Ed Kennedy's position.

This story has little to do with a big drug sweep. The kids picked up are easy targets. This story has little to do with ethnicity. This story is all about politics.

Nothing in Fitchburg will change as a result of this blip on the streets. Things will quiet down until the small-time runners can be replaced with more young people looking to turn a quick buck supplying a service like liquor stores, tobacco vendors, and pharmacies. There is a demand for their services, because the drugs they sell are addictive and some people want them.

And how does a crack addict get help when de-tox and rehab centers won't take them? And how does a heroin addict get help when they have to manuever through the bureacracy of place like CAB Health and Recovery Services?

Maybe y'all should pay attention to what "junkie" wrote (after all, wouldn't a junkie know better what goes down on the streets than a bunch of higher than thou racists?) instead of passing around ethnic slurs.

And Peter from Manchester, WTF????

This makes sense to me as Martha Coakley was at Slatterys yesterday.If this is true, it is a sad set of affairs in Fitchburg.I said to my friend "these are small players,like everyday pinches." A year of investigating should of landed some big hits.Have their been any big hits in mass lately??
This town has no chance if we can't get constant federal and state help as our police force consist of 4 cars on a friday and saturday. No detectives work nights or weekends.This is when all the action takes place. No wonder all the out of state plates arrive on saturday morning. The dealers have businesses and nice cars; they stick out like sore thumbs.

Here's an idea. Legalize it all. Tax it all. Monitor it all. Not only drugs but prostitution, gambling, the whole mess. The money spent trying to stop what some people want is ridiculous. The bigger dealers will NEVER be caught. If the profit is gone and the government takes over as pimps and pushers, maybe the whole drug trade will fall apart at the countries of origin and the crimes will be fewer. with no illegal demand, there would be no need for illegal supply. not my lifestyle but the crimes associated with drugs, etc., don't seem worth keeping illegal what can't be enforced.

do any of you hispanic-defenders STILL want to post how all races are drug dealers,,blah blah blah??? How much more proof do you need? I noticed there are a few "non-hispanic" looking names , but do the math.this thread should have a few hundred posts on it by this afternoon,and i will be willing to bet, the majority of them all have the same theme, more hispanic losers ruining the city,selling drugs,having illegal guns,,you know the deal,same story, different PR.(although I am sure there are a lot of repeat offenders in that bunch of shyteheads)
Hate to break it to you but they are mostly P.R. I know of quite a few of them.

You people are so nieve. Granted there is a lot of crime in fitchburg and most names in the news are of latin decent to be honest my fiance was a drug dealer in Meadowbrook and was friends with a lot of these people arrested this week he is white. Granted he got out of it but he is white not puerto rican, not latin, not asian, not dominican. he is WHITE. And no its not right to sell drugs, but you dont go around making people try drugs. People do drugs they are going to find them, and im not saying its right but you make money why not. Someone else is going to get the money.

Wow, just look at all those racially diverse names. I see one that might be considered latino. For those of us who think logically, the police reports reflect the diverse population in this city.

I don't defend the drug users, but so what if they want to do drugs, it's their life. If drugs were legalized all the profit would be gone. Look at the countries that did legalize druges. they have no problems with theives, break-in, drive-by killings; none of that and the millions of dollars spent arresting and investigating these so call "thugs" could be spent elsewhere. We are part of a system that is failing. There will always be drugs, drug users and drug lords as long as they can make money from it! Guarenteed, you come back to this board, 20 or 30 years from now they'll be another article about busting some more people for drugs, guarenteed.

you sound dumber with every post. read your second sentence,,you admit that "Granted there is a lot of crime in fitchburg and most names in the news are of latin decent ".
So why are you arguing that this is not a racial issue?You just said it yourself.So what if your fiance is white,no one is saying there aren't white drug dealers, but most of them are hispanic,and i wouldnt be bragging about the fact that the guy you are marrying is or was a drug dealer,are you going to have crack pipes as the centepieces?and your statement about "im not saying its right but you make money why not. Someone else is going to get the money.",,well that just says it all about you.

Who cares about race? There is a high concentration of scumbags in Fitchburg, and I am ALL FOR removing them from the streets by any means! You have good and bad from every race! Be it drug dealers, drug users, gang members, or criminals....wipe them out and make the world a better place.

The last two guys who hit me up for gas money cause their girlfriend was pregnant and needed a ride back to her mothers house where white crack addicted males. One at Mr. Mikes and one at the Dollar store parking lot off of 2A in Lunenburg. Also got hit up at a gas station on 95 south in Conneticuit by a white tattoed male, same poor luck story.
I'd say the prs are at least a step ahead of these poor baste*d addicted white guys.
The whole thing is a most unfortunate reflection on the state of our country.
