I heard from a good source that the Paris brother who was shot and recently busted but out on $500 bail gies around bar hopping with a loaded gun. Let's hope he knows how to chamber a round before he points it at someone. Let's also hope he target practices out there in hinsdale so he don't hit an innocent bystander. So tell me again these guys they busted aren't dangerous. Although I do agree some of the bigger players should go down too. Look at Josh stegman. That was a big bust. Kilos and 100's of thousands of dollars. There's been bigger and I don't think it's fair that some are getting off but I guess what they say is true don't hate the player hate the game. (man black guys are good at coming up with trendy sangs.)

So you know this town? It feels good to finally meet someone who really knows the point they are trying to make. Hype it up for the papers, make it look like they are doing their job, and all looks well!
the Eagle prints what the cops give them but this forum let's out some other information that will make people think this bust was a little shady with the biggest dealers free to continue their dealings. Steve will be careful cause he knows he is being watched but since he got a free pass from info he carefully provided. Also another interesting fact is him and stjohn cleaned out the stash house the day after the raids. His rented garage that he did not know what was inside and stjohn sold all the tools and camping stuff that very week. R u kidding me. None of that got printed. So who is protecting who? Scales has his own demons. His addiction and dealing will take care of jhim. With a thrid grade education. He is his own worst enemy. The ones left out of jail to continue dealing and recruiting should be in the cell next to the one they help put in. I am all for cleaning up this city but not for picking and choosing who goes and who stays.

Sad thing is....many people will keep patronizing his drug fueled business. Funny how a few years back, his house was being foreclosed on....then he opens three new shops! Does anyone think a real bank gave him a loan for that?!

How do you think he bought that business? How do you think he lives the way he does? Give me a break. If being a barber brought in as much money as he has and buys the things he has, I would do it. And by the way, why did he go to the bank and withdraw all his money the day after the 1st raids? PPD does not look at that? Really??? Or do they just ignore. He is the biggest player in this whole ring(so they say). He hired these so called ring leaders. They dealt out of his establishment. They stored the so called drugs in his garage! Go figure, he knew nothing. Him and the looser St. John. Eveyone knows him from way back! Where is Steve's and St john conspircey charges? They sleep with PPD. Why is SIM"S closed so early these days? What happened to ther late hours? No business Steve?
Maybe if people would come in and press charges on the drug dealers the police would not have to wait and catch them in the act. Unless they have evidance all is hear say! Go to the local police and stand up for your town........Or sit back watch and talk your talk. the police can only do so much until they have enough to make the arrest

Kinda amazes me that Steve owner of Sims can stand on the street corner at his Great Barrington barber shop with a couple whores on his hips and a couple body gaurds close by and make as much money as he does and not lift a finger to make it, there is more activity on that street corner from the time he opens till he closes and let me tell ya, he is being watched. I feel sorry for his wife and kids though, he probably gets more sex out of those two whores than he ever had with his wife. Enjoy your freedom now, cause they're coming for you too

Chris, the one who was in partnership with Ricky (C & R) he's another one that screws more women than his wife ever had from him. I saw him a couple time with skanks on jobsites, what a pig he is, but then, he is a pig isn't he now?

Speaking of scales, what about the large sums of money he stole, I heard it was over $100000. which means that he still has that hidden somewhere and he will use it comfortably at his leisure, but the rat he is will catch up to him someday.

Do you really think they do not have enough evidence on him now? How do you fight the cause when the guilty have the ties in this town? This is not new. It has been that way forever. And what makes you think I don't talk the talk? You can only hear "I'll see what we can do about it" so many times. These guys are not the big players, they are the pawns. The ones they use to take the fall. He has them is his pocket. Wineing and dining them. Keeping their little secrets quiet.

Where did the Vette,Trailer and other sale items come from in his garage? They plaster it all over town and get away with it. Even the Convience store is talking about the merchandise that has been for sale lately right in front of his garage. I never saw him or St. John in a Vette. Oh Right, I got it, they did not know it was there. Found it conviently and decided to cash in on it. Don't kid yourself, these 2 little gutless humans will sell their wifes, familys and whatever else they can to make money and save themselves.

Well said but just wait until they sell to a police or judge's spawn. Watch how things will change. They made a deal with the devil so they can live with it.
