The usual suspects. Why are they making such a big deal about 30,000 and a few bags of dope?That's 1/100 of 1% of the drug trade. If prohibition taught us one thing it's that people will get what they want,you'll never stop it. Wouldn't it be better to try to get the criminal element out of it, tax it and use the revenue to educate the young? Maybe you can create a drug free generation. Doing the same old thing only produces the same result. Rich drug lords, street crime and deaths from bad drugs. Better to at least try to control it.

NCPD is a bunch of bums. Shouldn't even call you guys cops, they're not in the same class as the NYPD.

Another fine example of the military/industrial complex playing both ends against the middle. Where is all this crap coming from? The CIA is pumping this garbage from Afghanistan and the nose candy from Central and South America into this country as fast as they can while he Department of Hopeless Insecurity looks the other way. Then the local cops are left to deal with the resulting crime wave. They catch the little fish, but you'll NEVER catch the big ones because they're the ones with the FEDERAL badges. WAR IS A RACKET.

Oh and WHEN, not IF the crime wave happens as a result of this steady flow of junk into our county, that allows the fascists over here to implement their police state.

Who loses? The citizens too stupid to see what's going on. The ones stupid enough to get addicted or be the little fish. The innocent people they victimize to support their habit. The poor guy who enlisted in the Army thinking this was all about finding the guys who caused 9/11. The taxpayer who pays the salary of those CIA and Hopeless Insecurity parasites.

Maybe even the cop, who might run across the wrong federally backed big fish one day and end up "disappeared" if he decides to actually do the right thing.

You're an idiot. Yeah, that's a great idea. Legalize heroin and tax it. Give me a break. Marijuana is one thing...it's not deadly and there are no documented cases of anyone ever dying from a marijuana overdose. Heroin is a potent opiate which depresses respiratory drive, in many cases resulting in death from hypoxia. Rather than poo-pooing efforts and crying about how it's just a drop in the bucket, maybe it would behove you to applaud the PDs efforts and acknowledge something this large can only be dealt with one step at a time.

Where are the photos of these people ?? If Nassau can post photos of drunk drivers, why can't they post photos of suspected heroin dealers ?

Excellent work from Long Island's finest.
Unfortunately, one rat goes away and another rat pops up. Where's the heroin coming from and how's it being transported here?

Why do you want to see them-sewer rats/socio and psycho-pathic/misfits.
Who cares-many more to go-but a few are off the streets--big teeth and a long tail-a rodent-if they bite you-get a rabies shot--THAT'S what they look like.

Ms. Rice says heroin us is on the rise. Sweetie, I hate to burst you bubble, but it factually has been making a comeback on LI since the very early 90's.
As for Natalie & other kids? There are so many telltale signs & the parents never see them. It's past time for parents to wake up & the judges to toss these dealers away for life

You want a Newsday pic of a heroin dealer? Here you go, I have one just for you.

It seems kind of interesting how the NCPD picks and chooses who will be charged with heroin possession.

Remember when they depicted this heroin buyer/user as a "victim" and let her slide on the drug possession charges. Has anyone figured out which official she is related to?

Cops: Westbury man sold, injected woman with heroin

Cops: She was found slumped over outside Hicksville store and then hospitalized

Joseph G. Sorrentino, 34, of Westbury, was arrested on charges that he sold a woman heroin and then injected her with the drug in the bathroom of a Dunkin' Donuts, Nassau police said.(Handout / July 15, 2008)

A Westbury man was arrested after selling a woman heroin and injecting her with the drug in the bathroom of a Dunkin' Donuts, Nassau police said.

The arrest came hours after the 21-year-old buyer was found slumped next to the Hicksville eatery Monday night, police said. She was in stable condition, being treated for an overdose Tuesday at East Meadow's Nassau University Medical Center, police said.

Joseph G. Sorrentino, 34, of Bowling Green Drive, was charged with criminal sale of a controlled substance and criminal injection of a narcotic drug, police said.

Around 9:45 p.m. Monday, a Second Precinct sergeant on patrol had found the buyer near the doughnut shop at 24 Newbridge Rd., police said, across from the Hicksville Long Island Rail Road station.

"The victim stumbled out of the store and collapsed near a side entrance," said Nassau Police Det. Lt. John May of the Second Squad. "He noticed that she was not breathing."
