It is about time that police are doing more drug busts. This is a huge problem in the state and across the country. Drugs ruin people's lives. I know that it is a persons choice to use drugs but then they loose that choice and have no where to turn. Drugs dealers should be treated like murders

when will people see that the real dangers are from alcohol, tobacco and caffeine ??
Alcohol should be illegal, the lethal dose is easily achieved and it has ruined many more peoples lives than any other substance known to man. Tobacco, inhaled and second hand smoke is now known as being deadly, yet is it still legal and unregulated by the FDA. educate yourselves and cut thru the propaganda.

Hmmmm..perhaps not intended, but your post reads that there is not real danger in illegal drugs such as marijuana, heroin, cocain, etc. Didn't think you you meant it quite that way....

I agree.. that IN ADDITION to illegal drugs, more should be done to address the hazards of tobacco and alcohol. Although, IMO there have been some good efforts to that end, including the smoking bans.

Regarding caffeine, recent articles I've read indicate that although there are negative effects of it, in some ways it is nearly equal to the blueberry in its antioxidant potential

No excuse for you or your wife. What were you thinking? You both have a nice home, good jobs,(Lisa being the Tax Collector for the Town of East Haven), and three children that now have to bear the frustation and embarrassment of what their parents have been doing. How would you feel if your children were doing these drugs that you obviously in the long run provide for somebody else's children. Shame on you and I hope you both pay serious consequences for this. I pray to God that you have family for your children. How could you love this disgusting way of life more that your own children. You don't deserve them

I agree with "not a friend". You committed a very serious crime. I don't get the minimization of that fact by some of the other comments. I would be supportive if you were ill, lost your job, were struggling with drug addiction but you are a drug dealer who got caught. I morally cannot support that. Nor I am going to separate "person from behavior". You are a grown man not a child. You dupped your friends and community. You coached children, sat on town boards (child focused). It all demonstrates such seriously poor judgement. I shudder at the thought. A little hard to believe that Lisa didn't know what was going on and didn't question where $$ from your 2nd job was coming from. Sometimes people just aren't who they appear. I support the children not the criminals.

I just want to know if it was worth it, losing your home, having to look at the people in Guilford. How can Lisa go back to work or better can she go back.
Does East Haven need a tax collector who is a drug dealer or married to one?
And if she didn't know how clueless can she be?

This is not Lisa's fault. People need to support her for her 3 beautiful children. What Vinny did was definatly wrong. He can not change that nor can thier life ever be normal. Our community is shocked. And I hope we can support Lisa and her girls.
