Now if the Judges will just keep them in jail & not let the same ones out over & over again.The law catch them lock them up then the Judges let them out to cook/sell again. The people need to stand up & demand change.

Maybe the state of Kentucky, should institute the 3 strike law, in prison after 3 strikes. Will this cut down on the same ones in the paper, or make news week after week? They are laughing at the justice system, time to get tough.

This isn't the first time for Patricia yet she is back making meth like so many. This county is only going to get worse as long as all people involved with meth are barely spatted on the bottom. Again, fault is with the judge. None of these people would be out if he weren't giving light sentences and mandatory rehabs that most quit and sneak out of.

We need to protest the Judge not doing his job. Everyone knows it is the same ones over & over again but the Judge continues to let them out.

Must be some BIG, under the table pay offs going on here.....could it be that someone(s) is racking in the jack???

Sometimes some people are at the wrong place at the wrong time. So the three strikes thing is would not be fair. John Doc Holiday DEA Is your family perfect i guess you think so. If Dea and Law Inforcment would look a little deeper than what's on the surface they might get somewhere but when your blinded by your own selfs

Opinions differ on meth bill proposal
By RONNIE ELLIS CNHI News Service
CNHI The Wayne County Outlook Tue Feb 08, 2011, 11:07 AM EST
2-16-11 — A major fight is brewing over a proposal in the Kentucky General
Assembly to require a doctor's prescription for now common cold
remedies containing pseudoephedrine as an avenue to shut down
Oregon and Mississippi have passed similar laws and, according to
Col. Joe Williams of the Kentucky State Police, they've seen more
than a 65 percent decrease in the number of meth labs that produce
toxic residue and can explode—in addition to the devastating
addictive nature of the drug. Currently, Kentucky requires purchasers
of the drugs to show identification that is entered into a statewide
computer tracking system. Purchases are limited for individuals, but
meth dealers have begun paying others to buy the products, a practice
called "smurfing." Williams estimates 70 percent of sales of the drug
are used in meth production.
While supporters call the proposal a "no-brainer," critics say it
will inconvenience allergy sufferers and retailers and perhaps turn
common cold and allergy sufferers into unwitting felons.
Lined up behind the bill are U.S. Congressman Hal Rogers, R-
Somerset, who rallied supporters in Frankfort on Thursday, Senate
President David Williams, R-Burkesville, House Speaker Greg Stumbo, D-
Prestonsburg, the Kentucky State Police, prosecutors and even the
Kentucky Education Association.
Lining up against it are retailers, the company that currently
tracks sales of the drug for the state, drug manufacturers and even
the wife of Rogers' fellow Republican Congressman Geoff Davis.
Opponents are running ads on the radio and in newspapers and are
expected to spend a lot of money fighting the bill.
Rogers appeared before both the Senate and House Judiciary
committees Thursday, telling lawmakers "an epidemic of amphetamine is
spreading across the state at an alarming rate, killing kids and
adults." He invoked the memory of 20-month-old Kaydon Branham, who
died after drinking a drain cleaner used in making meth at a home lab
in Wayne County.
He conceded the law will inconvenience innocent cold and allergy
sufferers–but so do traffic lights and airport security, he said. But
the bill outlaws only pseudoephedrine products.
Rogers said about 15 name-brand products would require a
prescription–while 137 others would be unaffected. And, he said,
pseudoephedrine is the only "essential ingredient" of eight required
to make meth. Eliminating its easy acquisition can put meth
manufacturers out of business, Rogers said.
"Would you trade a little inconvenience to save the lives of
children?" Rogers asked the Senate committee, chaired by Sen. Tom
Jensen, R-London, and sponsor of the bill.
"I can't understand, Mr. Chairman, why the companies that are making
these drugs are not being responsible citizens in trying to prevent
the fatal misuse of their drugs," Rogers said. "Could it be money,
Mr. Chairman? Could it be?"

Thats a great law. Needs to be more laws,the ones about drugs and other things.
#10 Feb 11, 2011
if you keep all the meth heads in jail soon the law would not have anything to do.
#11 Feb 11, 2011
the law! Congrats to all involved in chase last evening. Great work....

If the meth cookers would stay locked up where they belong instead of letting them back out in a day to cook again then we would not have the problem in the first place. Everyone knows who they are cause there in court every other week we dont need a tracking system we need a judge that will keep them locked up.

#15 Feb 11, 2011
I know one who makes sells or is involved alot in meth he never and i mean never gets in trouble. Michael Lee and Carolyn? Don't know if anyone knows them but they'd get away with murder. It isn't right. I'm 20 yr. Old female who has never seen meth never touched a pill,, but somehow hears the word "drugs" everyday. Hears "dope" "dope" "dope" till it disgust, turns my stomach. I'm so sick of these pathetic high school drop outs from long time ago makin shit from god knows what? Rat dope? Battery acid? They can't even spell why would you want to do the shut they make?!?!?! So sick of this meth problem.
#16 Feb 11, 2011
yea ok just funny how he always seems to be at the wrong place and wrong time, he is just as guilty as sissy and joe. You would figure theyd learn from the first time. And luke isn't innocent by far just some more of his pity stories, if he was innocent he wouldn't of failed a drug test a week before.
#17 Feb 12, 2011
Yeah right I guess he was all the other times to huh? He might be a good guy/good friend, but look at his past he knew very well what he was doing as well as what the others around him were doing....

Oh yes he is innocent as hell according to you. Problem is, if he was innocent then why not leave while they were cooking up a batch. An innocent person would have. You must take me and others on here for being totally stupid. BTW I don't claim to have a perfect family, but they like all familys have their flaws. But I think they would know enough not to hang out where meth is being cooking. Wrong place at the wrong time, my ass...
