Does this family qualify as a career criminal enterprise, or at least a public nuisance? It seems, the Tacinelli name has appearred in the police news more often than local sports teams in the general news.

Let's make sure that the SPD goes out and arrests all of the bar, restaurant, and tavern owners in town. Given that 109 people in CT were killed by drunks last year, thousands of women were abused by drunken husbands, and ZERO potheads killed anyone, let's get the perspective right.

Pot is much less dangerous than alcohol. Stop the lie. Criminalize alcohol today.

That is just a silly argument, there are 10x more people drinking then there are people using pot, if everyone smoked or did drugs as much as people go out and have a drink at dinner or go to the bar I'm sure the stats would be just as high.

As for this guy, he'll get what is coming to him, I guess this is still better then the other girl driving around with heroin (see other article in Southington section)

Don't be ridiculous. The only criminals in this case are the lawmakers responsible for such outrageously unjust laws. This arrest is just one more travesty of justice, like the million drug arrests happening every year to make the USA a drug gulag state.

The police and judges and lawmakers and socialworkers and prison guards and drug counselors and pee testers and everyone else making careers off drugwar --a large portion of them have the much more dangerous, deadly and addictive drugs alcohol and tobacco in their kitchens, purchased in the presence of their children. Meanwhile society is drenched in pharmaceuticals from Viagra to Xanax to Prosac and Ritalin so that people can change how they feel and function, each with their own side effects and abuse potentials as dangerous as would be any illegal drug put under legal regulation.

The hypocrisy and prejudice behind the drug war would be comic if it weren't so tragic in the ruining of lives, careers, families, neighborhoods...as well as undermining constitutional limits on government power and respect for the freedom and rights of the people. Public health is undermined through unregulated drugs, public safety is undermined by diverting a $hundred billion$ annual trade to organized crime.

Wouldn't it be better to replace this culture war black market chaos with a legally regulated market in all drugs? Wouldn't it be better to stop prosecuting the FALSE crimes of drug war that are really just oppressing certain drug cultures (brutalizing the people through forceful police arrests and violent, disease-ridden degrading prisons, then barring them from certain employments and from student financial aid)? Then we could instead concentrate on prosecuting REAL criminals who violate the persons or property of others!

Save the legalize pot speechs. Its not legal and thats the point. If cuban cigars and martinis were allowed at work on Fridays I would surely particpate but they are not so I don't. I wouldnt go around sneaking them in the restrooms becasue I think the rules are too harsh either.
I cant help but feel bad for the daughter. How is she to know better w a bum like that as a role model?

I agree with your rationale, completely. When we make laws we make them hopefully for what is good for the society at large..Yoy may prefer individual freedom, but sometimes we have to think of more than just ourselves.

Ha! What's to know? Did someone smuggle the drugs into their possession without their knowledge? They are criminals.

Nazis made laws for everything they did too. There are always so many Good Germans among us. Reminds me of the Soviet police state, where cultural and political dissidents were declared "mentally ill" and "treated." Same totalitarian culture war going on all around us, while the other-"legal"-drug-c onsuming hypocrites salute. Drug war is American Fascism.

Though I have had no contact with him for 30 years I've known John and his family since he was an infant and watched him grow up. When I saw this last night I was shocked. When you know the accused everything takes on a very different air. He had to have known he would have been eventually caught. He was never the brightest bulb, but this is true stupidity, not to mention the corruption of his daughter. - I'm reeling.

Wow, a real law and order type who has never heard of unjust laws. I guess you would have been just another German citizen in 1939 bowing down to the "law" that led to the extermination of 10 million people.

Great to see the deep thinkers at work.

I find it funny that if you read through other articles in the Southington section and read anything about drug use, people are being ripped for being liberal and we want drug testing in schools and etc, but when it comes to an article where a parent should be a good influence on his daughter people decide the drug laws is equal to nazism, that one is kind of extreme.

I'm with the guy who said he'd drink and smoke cigars at work if he could but guess what you can't! I really don't care of you smoke weed just don't be dumb and try and sell it out of your office and then maybe no one would care and you wouldn't be making the news
