This is simple. Let the weak die off by shooting up heroin. The cops are never going to be able to satisfy everyone. People that are bad at arguing point out spelling errors. Conceal and carry should be legal here to shoot dealers (: and everyone that keeps arguing behind fake names with the same person over and over again, swap names and figure it out.

How could you put this on the police shoulders? The police have no tie to the drugs your sons and daughters do! They can press the matter by inviting speakers like judge Nash to come in and talk to your kids (Thursday September 27 at 5:30 LWC) but parents have to push their kids to go! Police are working with federal investigators to find out the cause! The funny thing is if parents were to poke their noses into their children's life's theyd realize that their own homes are being used as a place of distribution. Parents wake up!

Agreed. And understand that it is just not herion, it could be the parents, grandparents, uncles drugs or pot etc. It happens to kids who are closely parented and those who r not. If they want to do it they will find a way. That's why it is so important to know the signs and listen to what your gut is telling you.

When I went to LWC, drugs of all varieties were dealt pretty conspicuously in the bathrooms and gym locker room, and the program they had set up to "bust dealers" equated to you also getting fined or doing jail time for being "involved", so obviously no one was going to take advantage of that sort of system.
I personally know a number of young people in this town who are addicted to drugs, and they come from all walks of life and home situations. They use because heroin has become a party drug in this county, they think they're untouchable, they're suffering from untreated mental illness, they're struggling with toxic home lives, etc. This image of stung out, filthy, homeless emaciated heroin addicts lying in the gutter mugging strangers is outdated. Most of the people I have met through my community works are kids who are holding down jobs, doing well in school, and planning for their future.
They get into hard drugs, because as I said, there is a definite "it's not that bad" and "nothing is going to happen to me" mentality attached to the youth here. It's not like when I was younger and if you went to a party, the cool kids were smoking a joint; now they're smoking heroin. It's de rigeur; no big deal. And after you do a drug like heroin "recreationally" a handful of times when you're out with your friends, then you are sucked into addiction, and no amount of reasoning or boundaries, or love from family, is going to pull you back from that cliff. Reason doesn't exist in the mind of a drug addict. The only goal is one more score, damned the cost or the consequences.
Until we start looking at this is a serious problem, and not "kids being kids", or "if they're stupid enough to try it, let them die", or "maybe if their parents paid more attention", nothing is going to change. Education is power.
I don't know why I am surprised that no one from the LW school system is going to be speaking at this symposium; the school is just as much at fault as anyone else in this situation for refusing to admit there is a problem.

Heroin and other drugs are fine. My boys do it and look at how fine they are doing in life. Yeah sure, two of the three are out on bail, but one isn't. We as as a community should embrace the drugs, think if it as a money revenue, look at all the fines my kids get, and then I have to pay people off to make them disappear. Talk about a stimulus package. When there suppliers come to town, they need spoons to heat it up. So Walmart sales are up as well. So short of a few deaths and burglaries, it's a win win for New Lenox. So next time you see a tax bill, please call me and thank me for keeping it so low, and remember me at reelection time, therm who cares.

So years ago pot was the worst problem you would find at Lincoln Way and that was only the "stonies." Where and when did all this happen? Heroin wasn't there in the late 80's.

This herion problem just sounds like another great way for hillbillies to be thinned out. INstead of the usual drunk driving death and imprisonment method, now we have hard drugs.

A big thanks to whomever invested this stuff, the rest of us who actually have our s%&t together don't have as many idiots to share the air with now.

I agree 100%, I think the Feds should expand into the industry and put poison in it, drug problem solved, at least in a matter of months.
