Full story: Lowell Sun

That's how many times Lowell police had to arrest Christopher Koziol on felony drug charges before a judge decided that Koziol should no longer be able to post bail.

Isn't it about time that the Lowell Police start cutting down the shoes from the telephone wires. Doesn't everybody know what that means?

Wow, if it isn't street savvy Sourpuss Magee...If everyone including the dealers, Lowell Police, and suburban Belvidere kids know what it supposedly means, perhaps it may not be the most accurate way of tracking these people down.

But by all means, maybe you can perform citizen's arrests every time you see a pair of sneakers wrapped around a telephone line. Makes me wonder...I saw a pair hanging from the line in front of the Roger Street McDonalds. Should we check the bathrooms first?

Are you serious?How would that have helped in this case.Most of the drug dealers are caught from traffic stops.The police are doing their job the courts are not.How frustrating it must be to arrest these people and see them right back out a couple hours later doing the same thing.This guy now will probably get all his cases combined and do barely any time.Start making judges accountable they should have to be elected so that when they don't do their part they can be voted out.

Obviously, you missed the big drug bust at that very McD's a year ago. Interesting that the shoes are on Westford, Lane, and Walker streets, but not on Andover and Mansur. It is time that the cops get off their cell phones and start patrolling.

I know a great way to clean up the city.

All these drug dealers,addicts,hookers and the entire Middlesex shelter,pick it all up and move it to Springfield.

With the exception of the time I took a train through Harlem, Springfield is the biggest craphole I've seen.There is no hope for Springfield,it makes Lawrence look like Chelmsford.And then finally businesses and people will buy the condos and use the new garage downtown.
Lowell has had a bad enough rep over the years, lets just pass it on to Springfield.

Well since we're raiding every residence that has shoes in front of it to put a dent in city drug trafficing, why not pull over every unmarked utility van as well so we can curb child molestation.

Do you know how rediculous you sound with the shoes on the power lines crap?

You sound like another disgruntled Highlands resident that would like to live in Belvidere.

I csn't believe there's someone out there that still thinks there's drug dealers are slinging sneakers over power lines to let everyone know they're open for business.

That's the funniest thing I've heard all day.

Just so sourpuss magee knows.There is shoes hung over the wires on High st. across fom the senior housing complex. Just think of all the seniors selling drugs out of their apartments.

Why not go one step further and just print yourself business cards? How about a website for online orders?

It's time to ban shoes with laces within the city limits. There are plenty of choices for laceless shoes, choices such as a variety of different sandals, sneakers with valcro, jellies, slippers and goloshes.

It's time to take out the trash in this city.

Good luck telling a construction crew that they can't wear their boots, and that they have to put on a pair with velcro...

I'm with Jack. Make being a judge an elected position and when they don't perform give them the boot. I know they have rules and laws to go by but why don't you ever see that reason in print why the judges continue to release these thugs? Why don't they have to answer for their actions?

I can't believe so many people have a shoe fetish in this city. No doubt all you sickos were raised above Nesmith Street.

As for me, it will be the Highlands forever and a day!
