Again we see how law enforcement uses the lies of snitches to build cases against innocent people. Everyone wants to sit back and allow the DEA and other agencies to knowingly turn a weak case into a big case based on these scummy peoples testimony. I repeat again as I have every time an article of this nature appears, It takes the testimony of two people against someone for the feds to get a conviction. Everyone needs to wake up to this fact and what is going on. Cops that do this are bigger criminals than the people they try to lock up. Informants are the worst form of scum to walk this earth and the use of their testimony needs to be substantiated with evidence. Most drug cases are based on dry conspiracies. No drugs were ever found or can be linked to the person other than those a snitch testifies to buying at some time.

Look, if the government doesn't have snitches, how are these losers gonna fend for themselves? These snitches, will be on the welfare rolls, if we don't use them.

Good that is where they should be. You fail to understand that the snitches are used to put innocent people in prison. Their lives and those of their family are ruined and are in fact the ones who will end up on wellfare. The snitches need to quit using drugs and get real jobs. The government needs to start doing real work and not rely on false testimony in order to make a case.

The Sheriff should go to jail, directly to jail, do not pass go. Maybe get a cellmate who's in for dealing crack? These dirty cops, and the cops who turn their backs on the dirty cops, should be hung for treason.

Drug dealers need to stop breathing. They ruin lives and if not for "snitches" a good many would never be caught. Thats what is wrong with society today...everyone keeps to themselves...let the druggies, molestors, etc...just walk on by. Dirty snithches, corrupt officers all of these people need to disappear! And if you do "tell" what you know you may end up being termed a "liar" or worse have the corrupy police come down on you for saying what you know! I know all about it. There is no hope for the good people. We are all in the same sinking boat.

I care because the community cares. We need to get scum like you off of our streets, and if we have to use informants to do it, well I say so be it!!!
