Rizzo, I leave odd comments on this site but I think you are going too far. In fact, I would have to say that you are pretty much an idiot. What out of town drug dealers would the cops be scared of? I used to associate with many of the "big-time" drug dealers in hanover and there are few out-of-towners that run drugs. They may ultimately supply the drugs but they aren't coming here to mess with some cop because he busted one of their dealers. Seriously! I'm about the same age as you but I realize that I am not an expert in anything. I can tell that you are not well educated. Do something different, go to school, work-out, play a competitive sport/game. You say there is nothing to do and that cops are lazy but in actuality you are lazy! There is plenty to do (like attain an education) You may not think of that as entertainment but you would probably be surprised about the wonderful feeling that comes over you when acing a test or completing a project. Accomplish something! drugs are for lazy people who want to blame everyone else. Seriously! I am no cop and do not pretend to be a supporter either but I don't think you shoud threaten/belittle the police force. And based upon your remarks, I am guessing that they got you! So really, who's the lazy one?
p.s. selling 3 caps to get 1 for free does not constitute you as a drug dealer! Seriously!

What about spiritual matters?
No one is exempt from these problems, not even Christians but I can guarantee that statistically speaking, the majority of kids with drug problems most likely were not raised in a Bible-believing home attending church regulary.
Prove me wrong.
And yet we dare not have God or prayer mentioned in our government schools.
Go ahead and keep God out of your homes and schools. And you will continue to see these types of problems grow worse.
I guarantee it.
Amen!!!!!

You may want to back up and rethink that comment, because you did not spell anonymous correctly.

John M. I couldnt agree with you more. There is not much for the kids to do. The movies are expensive, bowling is expensive and roller skating is expensive. We dont even have an arcade for the kids to hang out in. Kids with too much time on their hands is not a good thing.

I was always under the impression that scripture states that the judgement comes after the resurrection. Why this person would go directly to heaven is not scripturally sound.
Under the impression? Hmm. So you haven't read it thoroughly have you. Yes, it is scripturally sound that a born again believer's spirit immediately goes to be with the Lord when they die.
Those who are not believers will be judged on judgement day, and since their names will not be written in the book of Life, they will be cast into hell.
If you are right about religion, then we both are OK. If I am right, you may be in trouble. I know God is real, I have seen him take people and change their lives so dramatically, and that is all the proof I need.

Believers will also be judged that day on how they lived, and will either get rewards or not based on how they lived as a Christian.

My husband and I are together and happy. We do things with our kids all the time and always have. Im a stay at home mom. I ask questions to the point my kids are tired of answering me. They tell me I am nosey and hover. It came to light that one of my kids was sneaking out in the middle of the night and got into trouble with drugs! So dont go making the remarks about divorce, or having to take your kids to daycare is the cause for trouble. Would you make that same statment to a parent whose spouse passed away?

Just like alcohol is legal and regulated? No abuse going on there, huh?!?! Brilliant idea! Can't wait to drive with my children among not only drunk drivers but legalized drug influenced drivers!

If I remember correctly the police in Hanover have to live within a 10 or so mile radius of Hanover. If you take note when you post it doesn't necessarily always put the correct town you are from. When I'm home in East Berlin it says Dover, when I'm at work in New Oxford it says Gettysburg. I'm sure that is what happened when the Chief posted.

Boy, that excuse is getting old. Raise your kids to enjoy some family time - how much is a frozen pizza and the tv set? Kids too old for that, ok, have them invite a friend over that you can supervise. Rethink the last item you bought for yourself and spend that money on treating the kids to a game of bowling. Too many "parents" are just so ready with the excuses. To be a parent = stay involved from birth!

Amen to ALS and am in pa!! Spend more time with your kids and they won't have time to get into trouble!!!! Unfortunately so many parents want to be "cool" and let their kids go and do whatever and seem so easy going! Do you really know what your kids are doing? IF you truly love your children, you WILL be involved constantly!! The excuse of smothering them is so lame! Deep down, kids want their parents to be involved with them and if you are from birth on up, that is what they will know and expect! It's when you want to push them aside so you can have your own time is when the trouble starts. If you truly stay involved you won't have the trouble!! Save your words if you say you were involved and they still ended up in trouble... you obviously weren't consistent with being involved! Children are a blank page and we the parents write upon that page....

Rizzo, Again I reitterate...you are clearly a moron. If you were "the dealer to the dealer", you obviously sucked at it because when you're that big the cops in Hanover shouldn't even know about you and I hope that you would have maximized and been the "dealer to the dealer" of several towns. At which time, you would be subjected to state and federal scrutiny, not really a borough patrolman concern!....You know what, I am going to change my mind about you....Yeah! dude you are sooo cool, you work sooo hard all day long (greeter at Wal-mart) and then go to art school (coloring at rehab) at night! You deserve to get high man. Your life is so rough. I remember when I lived on my own (in his parent's basement), it can be really tough. All that stress, you need to get high man! Seriously, I really understand now. and there are so many people (like 5 in that coloring rehab class) that feel the same way. They probably all have great jobs too!(Dishwashers, McDonalds & hookers). I am glad you are a part of this town Rizzo! It's peeps like you that make me proud! Keep up the hard work, continue to get that education and go ahead and get high! You're the winner here, the rest of us just don't get it and are just jealous!

Boy - that's pretty funny. Not sure if Rizzo will get it though. You used a lot of high class punctuation there - might be a little tough for him to read! I wander if he'd consider a side class in grammar to help him through it since he's such a go-getter! Pretty scary this one thinks he's well educated!
