I think that all of this stuff with meth labs and people going to jail over it is b/s. Honestly they lock up people for thhat but just put child rapists on the sex offender lists and on probation. There are alot of worse crimes going on that go unoticed due to this war on meth. Well personally I think Jesse Carter and whoever else is snitchin needs to realize how would you like that if it happen to you. For real i mean it's one thing if they get caught on there own or w/e but you don't have to be a hater cuz you can't take responsibility for your own stuff ya'll get caught up in. So to the snitches one word of advice karma is coming. And to everyone who is getting screwed over by the police as well as the rest of us .......don't play where you lay and don't let no girl know your buisness or anyone else you cant trust......JESSE CARTER

Great work huh??? Yea lets go ruin families lifes because people get caught and cant take there own heat. so they cut a deal and become a lil nark. It is one thing for sumone to get busted by slippin thereselves. But as kids our parents have always told us nobody likes a tattle tale or snitch. So yea everyone will eventually get busted if they don't just quit while they still have a chance. They don't need some hater working with kvet like jesse carter or just calling silent observor. My thoughts and prayers are with you guysz. You know who you are and don't worry when you get out you've got friends here for you.

So...you call informants "haters" because they get caught, and "don't take responsibility for what they do"...yet illegal activites, according to you, are OK - and doing the right thing, like arresting these people - ruins families? I guess I was always taught that if you do the right thing in the first place, you never need to worry about "snitches" or tattle-tales...right?

Am I missing something, or is that like saying "as long as I don't shoot you, you shouldn't care if I am shooting other people?" And if you did care, would you them be a "hater" for turning me in for shooting your brother, friend, etc.? I guess it just sounds to me, from your words, that making meth is fine so long as nobody catches you. It's OK to deal in illegal activites so long as you keep your mouth shut. Or am I living in a different world than you?

Look at the damage it does to the development of a family when a father, mother, son is making meth and/or dealing it? There was a young family that lived about two miles down the road from me that was making it several years back, and you should see the burns that their two young girls (5 and 7 at the time) ended up with after falling into a drainage ditch that was full of the crap these losers were using to make meth. Fortunately, they both were sent away for a long time and the kids taken away.

I guess I just don't even comprehend where you are coming from or where you get off saying what you do...but to each his own, and I respect that.

Where do they get all the sudafed, people that are sick and need sudafed have to turn over there first b orn child to get it, so again the laws have made it so the middle class people have to suffer and the criminals always get what they need and want , it is just like the guns. a criminal will always get the guns

Illegal Activites... You are right when you say that but are you really? That's just societies view on meth. If you are selling it and it's made to the best of it's quality where no one's dieing from it then what's the argument? Oh wait someone could overdose? True but what else can people overdose from? A lot of things. Also how can you buy all legal stuff (While being under your pill limit) and poof make something that's totally not allowed? That really doesnt make sense to me because everything in making it is legal to buy from what i've heard so that's a bit messed up... How do you think americans have success? By being creative and thinking of ways and ideas to introduce something to the public that they will like so in return they're a successful american. A dealer is similar to a Walmart, Meijer, or any store for that matter in the sense they're just selling a product that's wanted by the public. It the dealers fault then when people overdose and dont know their limits? I could go on and on, it's definately up for debate in my eyes. Lastly the catch on being for meth rather then against it is you have to see the other side and respect the police and i guess KVET too. Cause all in all they're just doing their jobs which is what anyone should do. The thing i look at is if you're a cook then you must take it serious like any other job with as much safety as possible, just like anything in life should be approached, which is with safety. Plus if you know what you're doing and successful at doing it with no fires or sudden deaths then you should be good to go... Just like those KVET guys, they should take their job very serious and do what they need to do which is get the drugs off the streets. That means with no kicking in the ribs to those found at a drug scene while the cops are on the way or throwing them in the dirt, harassing, or any of it for that matter. It works both ways, and both should be taken very serious, whichever path you choose though is obviously up to you. As long as you understand the whole situation and each sides reasoning why they do what they do (whether that's bust em, or cook em) then you have every right to argue in favor of meth!

Doug and Mike Marcon are snitches? Well I happen to know these people too and if they were snitches how in the world did Doug get charged with operating and mainting and 2 other charges. I beleieve that if him and his family were in fact snitching that they would be living back in there house and not paying all sorts of money and have all the required tests done to get it back. And Jesse Carter is not a snitch huh? Well he admitted to Doug and others that he helped set up there house. And now he is all of the sudden moving to Georgia. That dosen't sound fishy huh. So whoever you are you need to get your facts right and realize that your friend Jesse is a informant. Or wait you said you were Jesse's friend, and he don't have no friends so this must be him. So have fun Jesse and I advise you to stay as far away from Michigan as possible. And good luck Matt and Brad. As far as Nick and Josh go have fun turning into Jesse you little snitches!! Wait till we see you guys as well.

From an earlier post from "Free my People" "I beleieve that if him and his family were in fact snitching that they would be living back in there house and not paying all sorts of money and have all the required tests done to get it back." Well look who's living back in their condemed little meth house? It's druggie Dougie and his little meth mongril family. I guess they did snitch after all. by the way KUDOS to Jessie Carter.

Your post is very funny!!! The Marcon Family is back living in their house. Go figure. And you are right, Doug was charged with operating and maintaining a meth lab. He was caught in the act when the cops busted in. His own speed freak daughter said this. And look, all of these charges and he isn't in jail...HMMMMMMMM...All I can say is SNITCH!!! The whole family. People can say what they want but those of us who don't support the one pot method of cooking and doing the drugs...well we know who the snitches are and they live in a grey house on Riverview dr. with bright orange stickers...You are pathetic. Go buy some more sudafed and help to contribute to the druggies..
