And I should add.... not only the kids with fetal alcohol syndrome, but born with meth addiction etc......aware of one individual with 4 children born addicted to drugs. All were taken away and live with family members. This is beyond what I can even imagine.... what do we do with someone like this? I say mandatory sterilization....now we just stomped on our right t freedom... so what is the answer for a person like this? Oh by the way- you an I are paying to have her children raised because she decided to be irresponsible and use drugs. Her own mother can't even wrap herself around it. She thinks her daughter I being "mistreated". If the first one was sterilized...(mother) the rest would have never happened.
free sterilization for anyone who wants it including men. give them a $50 gift card to reward there them for being a responsible adult. it is a win situation for everyone.

The Clinton County and Frankfort cops are a lot of this problem. They wanted the town to get rid of marijuana, and they ended up with issues with pills, meth, and heroin! Karma always gets you!!!!

If anyone had a solution, it would already be in motion now wouldn't it? Don't you have a better come back than a mere sentence or two. I don't think I wasted my time. I'll use it how I choose in this forum or anywhere else. Offer up some intelligent convo and I'll respond.
I only want to say that you bring up some very valid points. I think the legalization of marijuana is a start. I got my case jumped by saying that it wasnt police investigative work that got these people arrested it was the fact that someone got offered less time and a better deal to turn others in. I didnt know any of the people arrested personally. It is well known fact that in this community that they use the users and dealers against each other ALWAYS.Who ever took offense to that apparently works in law enforcement or knows them on a personal level. My family has lived in Clinton Co. Frankfort for decades. and yep I am going to say it. Has been said by the old timers that the police have a hand in moving drugs through the town. Maybe not every single one of them but a certain group of them.
I have no argument with your view. People will continue to do what they are going to do. I only want to say that who ever wrote that if your a parent you should never put that first pill in your mouth. Many recieved that first pill from their doctor. And dependency starts, many who sit and scream about the addicts need to look at their own medicine cabinet. What prescriptions are they taking. If suddenly those where taken away , how would they deal without them?
people are quick to judge.
I hate the fact that the younger generation are starting with such things as meth and heroin. It scares me as to what will happen to them.
Peace to you and yours.

Is it the cops fault that the big bad thugs cry like little girls when they get arrested and then want to sing like canaries to get out of trouble. The cops would be fools not to use that.
I agree with that. They would be fool not to use the info that the singers give.

You may not understand this through your haze of smoke but it is actually the state and federal government who make the laws. Cops only enforce them.

Just a hunch, but I'll go out on a limb and guess that all drug investigations at the local, state and federal level begin with a lower
level drug arrest and things snowball from there. Is there a better way?
Local business owners, school teaches, doctors or lawyers probably aren't the best source of information when trying to establish where
drugs are being sold.

Yes, I'm sure the local police have a secret warehouse somewhere that no one has ever seen. They move hundreds of pounds of marijuana and kilos of cocaine while working closely with the Mexican drug cartel.
This activity along with all the violence associated has gone undetected by the DEA for the past 100 years.

Use your head for a change Misty. The "old timers" you refer to I'm sure are a very reliable source of information. In your words, "people are quick to judge." You don't know squat.

If you can sit there on your throne and say this town isnt a mess and question why it is, and pretend you know WHATS NOT TRUE, then your lying. I only said that I have heard it said often by the older generation. NOt the drug users and the drug dealers but by law abiding , tax paying citizens. Are they right? Why such the uproar of the mention.
P.s Has nothing to do with any mexican Cartel. Mexicans were a rare thing when these old timers were around.

.Hopefully soon a leader will emerge that will have Zero tolerance from any and all city officials. Any and all may I repeat. Then and only then will things begin to turn around.

Obviously coming from someone who hates drug use if a teen starts smoking pot and can't just go to a smoke shop to get it they have to walk into a drug house where they may be out of pot but they can offer u meth or herion just give it a try then they r hooked. Stop acting like pot is awful. Cops not doing their jobs and te government only worrying about how to make money off legalizing pot is bullshit I blame them all for the kids running around on pills and hard drugs. Make pot accessible and I bet everything I will ever have that herion meth and pill use with decrease.

"Pretend to know what's not true." You don't know what you're talking about do you. Let me try to understand this.... these so called law abiding, tax paying citizens of Frankfort were probably hanging out at the local smoke shop exchanging facts about the drug running local police. Let me ask you this; does your "any and all" policy include your family?

Lets see.....new leader..........how about General Arturo Salazar? I'll bet he could turn things around.

To say that the drug cartels in Mexico aren't responsible for some infiltration of drugs into this country and community would be akin to putting on a blindfold and earplugs. Do you really know where it is coming from? Yes, there is a myriad of sources from local dealers to shipments from the major hubs such as Chicago and Indianapolis. Really, at first glance, what you see when you look at Frankfort is a small Indiana farming community/town with quite a bit of industrial influence-. This is not so different than many other small towns in the Midwest. What you don't see....what lies beneath the underground...the slimy underbelly, the things we don't like to think about- the heroin use, methamphetamine and cocaine etc...and of course pot. Most people really have no conception of how deeply integrated the drug traffic is in this community. Also, how many people as I said earlier that are your next door neighbor, official, friend, relative, or professional that is a user and you don't even know it... you have no idea, and if they don't undergo random drug testing at work, then they just continue to operate in society undetected. Most people don't have any idea the realm and impact of this. As long as you have a supplier and a user drugs are going to exist. What do you think motivates or drives the MAJORITY of crimes? Drugs.....#1... solutions? Not many I'm afraid. As a society, we have tried them all lock them up, rehabilitate them..but bottom line is that people are going to get a "high" to escape whether it be alcohol, tobacco, prescription drugs etc... Our country and our community are a mess. We can keep blaming everyone from the police, law makers etc.... but ultimately it is the person who ingests the drug because they don't have the courage to face life head on.

Think about it for a minute... we live in a society where we like to place the blame on everyone and anything else but ourselves... when do we take responsibility for our actions and realize that the buyers are just as guilty as the suppliers? Simple economics of supply and demand.... no demand, supply dwindles. Hey, I am all about helping rehabilitate people.. maybe even on my dime if I think it would help society in general. However, once only.... for the habitual offenders, put them to work.. make them productive instead of sitting in some jail cell sucking up my tax dollars. Work them for 16 hours a day and put that money into the coffers of our federal state and local governments. More grants for schooling,. fix the roads etc...we have become a society where we coddle the damn criminals so much because of their "rights." You lost your rights when you violated another persons.

I often thought that would be a great program to do with "dead beat parents". You go to jail once to put the a reminder in your brain that you are responsible for your children, and after that work release every day , the county paid their rent and whats left mailed to the ordered reciever of the child support. Until, if ever the "deat beat" is completely caught up. Throwing these people in jail does nothing productive for our children, causes further proverty and essentially no one wins. The biggest loser being the children. It could and would work if done. I truly believe that!

Makes sense to me to squeeze every laborious waking hour we can get out of them.
