the police officers in idabel should be investigated because they had to know about all the drug dealers there in idabel, it's not like idabel is the size of New york. it should not stop with just citizens arrest.

So what gives or should I say who is running for office now? That is the only time anyone cares who is selling drugs in these rual communities. This has been a problem for as ling as I can remember and the same people are dealing. What the story doesn't tell is that of the 27 bust the majority were people who were purchasing the drugs. How about actually now going after the crooked cops and the meth dealers!

why is that everyone always starts talking about crooked cops when there is a bust?
I dont get it. When the cops arrest them they hand them over to the court systems and then it is up to our judicial system to take care of them. the police are only as good as the evidence they can get. I certainly dont want their jobs nor do i think anyone of us could do any better. Im not saying there isnt crooked officers but there are more honest ones than crooked. So lets support them!

I think its good to get all of these awful people into custody. Do you want your children getting drugs and such from these people?

It is great to get the dealers off the street. That's not who they are getting. There are judes involved in these dealings also. They just arrested one of the members of the fire dept for selling drugs. They arrest these people and they are back on the streets in just a matter of time.

ifvthey do catch someome that is a big time dealer the sell out the little guys for a walk in the park==when do you ever hear of a big time distributor going down and getting years in the pen==noe. the drugs have to be made by someone and sold by someone. It is the distributor that needs to be taken off the streets not the little small time user. Rehab the user or dry him out in a jail cell for 3 or 4 months and let him go. the dealer, the distributor is the big guy to bust. Have they made any arrest in vALLIANT IN THE LAST 2 OR 3 DAYS. HEARD THERE WAS. bY THE WAY ANICE KID i KNOW DIED FROM AN OVERDOSE OF ICE. BAD NEWS

My ex gf was from here and she always told me about the bad cops there. How they would give her a ride home from the liquor store with beer and vodka.

Every cop in that town should be investigated in that town, like that town is so hugh that cops can not make it out to Laurel Ridge in time to save the people that needed them 4 years ago. That whole town needs to be put in the washer and hung out to dry!!!!!!!!!The drugs, guns, need to taken some where else.

Arrest are made in rural towns because some other drug dealer is stealing the local cops business.

It cuts into their profits, so they use the law to get rid of them whereas gang bangers just shoot them.

Let's put this into perspective people. Drugs are bad, they are bad for ones health, and the need for drugs puts innocent ones in danger Aka violence. Here's the catch, alcohol is bad, it is bad for ones health, and it puts innocents in danger(drunk driver). Cigarrettes are bad, bad for ones health and puts innocent(non-smokers) in danger for the risk of their health. Getting my drift? It's all the same, statistics show if drugs were actually legalized it would: 1. Make our economey do a 360 and in 1month the US would be in a positive stand point instead of a negative. And 2. Violence would go down, the reason drug attics use violence is the fact the drug they are looking for isn't available stat, on demand. Don't you get angry when a store is out of an item you are looking for? You drive to 5diff stores and you keep getting more and more angry. Just saying..

your a buch of dope doing, whiney, bitchin people who do nothing more than blame other people for your mistakes. if ur running aorund with people in ur car that have dope in their purse your as big a dumb a** as them.

"ohh poor me, cops are always followinn me, stalkn me, pullin me over...booo hoo hoo..." get off dope, quit hanging around dopers and the cops wont mess with u, its what they are paid to do...never had one bother me, but i dont run with the outlaws u do.

I was speeding and got a ticket. Dang them cops have nothing better to do.

I did drugs and got arrested. Dang them cops are just out to get me.

I robbed a convience store and went to jail. Dang them cops won't leave me alone.

I beat my wife and was arrested again. Dang those cops are stalking me.

I wonder why my frog won't fly, must be a dumb frog he just won't learn.

The problem with that is, is the buyers will still figure out a way to get it, if their dealer is behind bars, where do u think they'll go to get it? They'll start making It themselves, with the majority of them not knowing what their doing, they blow themselves up and die. So what the police are trying to do is be one step ahead. Yeah it doesn't make sense why they don't go ahead and get the dealer, but I guess it's just the way the system works

Have you ever thought of the time and cost to have a federal agency created to handle this? Then state and local laws, the fact that any pot growing operation would look like a small prison with all the security needed to keep people out, Some drugs are so addictive you won't be able to keep a job to pay for your meds and well then what? You rob folks for their money or do bad drug deals and you rob places that have the drug you need and like you said...you have your script but you can't get it filled and you get angry especially after you have driven to 5 stores and can't get your 'meds'
