I grew up in the projects in npt. I know some of the people that were arrested. I cant speak for all on that list but the ones that I know are just lazy people that make a life out of taking advantage of the system. those few make the rest of us look bad. I guess its easier to live in subsidized housing, on ssdi and sell drugs then it is to get a job, even if its minimum wage. and yes some on that list were living exactly like that and I know because I saw them everyday doing absolutely nothing but sucking the life out of the city of npt.

One thing over looked by the pro-drug seller bunch above is that the drug sellers are trying to get new people to get hooked on drugs (new customers). They start with "Free" samples then when the users get hooked, then it's "Oh by the way, you owe me alot of money". To pay for these drugs, the hooked customers turn to crime. In the last 7 years, my daughter has been robbed 4 times (the last one a few days ago). Witness called cops, got there late, robber went into building 3 north of her place. Witness said won't go to court to say anything so cops won't do anything (but we know the person, and need for drug money is the cause).
I rather pay alittle in higher taxes for the dealers kids food (so he would not need to sell drugs), than to have hooked druggers robbing houses, going thru personnal items, and saleing or pawning them miles in all directions so you will never get them back.
your joking right. ive done A LOT of drugs and never got a "free sample" or experienced anything like what u just stated. IDIOT

Honestly, people who are defending the drug dealers probably do drugs or sells drugs. I'm glad they cought these people, and honestly I think they need to come back for the rest of the drug dealers. Kids in middle school are smoking weed, do you people really think that is ok?? These low life's need to get a real job, or 2 or 3 , but they need to learn how to work hard like the rest of us!!!

Ps. I'm not trying to be bitchy and I'm not pointing anyone out in particular but this is a pet peeve of mine. there= a place ( in example, over there) they're= they are ( in example they're upstairs , and their refers to a persons possessions ( example, their job , their house, their money)
