Those are some fine lookin Jiggers. Mighty fine.
" Officials said many of the suspects in the investigation have significant criminal histories including offenses related to drug trafficking, weapon violations, assaults and other violent crimes.
Many of these defendants are facing multiple charges for the sale of crack cocaine that occurred in the cities of Duluth and Superior. Several defendants will be prosecuted in Douglas County for charges stemming from the operation.
Arrests were made across Duluth and Superior, and in the Twin Cities.
During the investigation, task force investigators identified a trend in the narcotics trafficking — trading so-called food stamp or EBT/SNAP cards in exchange for crack cocaine.
“These trades were made at rates equal to approximately 50 percent of the face value of the card. Crack cocaine with a street value of approximately $100 was purchased with cards holding benefits equal to $200,’’ police said in this morning’s release.

Duluth is infamous for a mass black innocents hanging. It has always been a forward looking LIBERAL town. ONLY a Libertard infested town would mass hang a bunch of innocent blacks.

BTW, blacks are NEVER guilty of anything!!
