i was arrested in the 1st street sweeper in 2006 for distribution of cocaine. I did not sell this or any other drug; my case just ended this year. I went to jury trial and was found not guilty. I had a hard battle to prove that I was innocent. What people need to know is that this so called drug task force is taking drug addicts who still use and giving them monet to go buy drugs off their buddies (to set them up) to lessen their drug offenses in court, but then the drug addict turned narc takes the drugs and gives the polie a fake drug and the narc goes home and gets high. How do I know this I have a family member who done this for the police..what did he do? He took the money made a friend pose to be the person the police wanted and the outcome was. The police got a fake drug substance and he got high with alot of money. What this in turn fueled alot of stealing, abuse, and more drugs, and now he is in the state pen doing time til 2009. Is this a good thing or not? My theory is drug addiction is a disease and locking these addicts up doesn't help, they need to be reformed and educated about there disease not put behind bars, wasting time and state funds, when they get out they will once again abuse because their disease hasn't been treated. please comment!!!

I think that any drug task force is great, as long as they know what they are doing. I think that if you get a call on someone investigate it, better to found innocent and have done the checking up, then not to do anything and the person you got a call on has just got high, wrecked and killed an innocent person, or family. I think that yes drug addicts do need help, but they also need to be punished for selling drugs to others. I hopethey all get lots of jail time, and help while they are in there! So good for you Operation Street Sweeper & Operation Unite in Ky!!! Clean these states up so people or families aren't scared to let their kids out, or to go places.

What has happed to innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt? It seems like more and more every day is thrown out the window its like witch hunting in the old days. All they have to do is point a finger and collect the money just wait till someone points there finger at u. There is no reason an innocent person should have to suffer for someone others drug problem. There family suffers enough with them as it is.

All drug users,sellers,know the effect of any foreign substance in their body,be it alcohol,meth,smoke,,even aspirin for pain relief.with the availability of Internet information on the use of drugs and its lasting results on the body.there is no excuse for anyone to cry foul.just as an alcoholic loves his drink and its bodily effect, smokers (even cigarette), feel an effect.i used to smoke and had lots of other alcohol drinks as a much younger man.i knew the effect even before it entered my body.if I set even today and have a beer,I know before I drink it that the drug (alcohol) will effect my brain, so all you druggers stop crying foul.you sound like speeding on our highways then saying I didn't see that speed limit sign.those abusing drugs should be punished even more severely than they are.

I do not agree...I think the drug dealers selling it to young people causing them to get addicted...breaking up families..Destroying our children should be stopped!The dealers are the one that should be punished even more severely than they are!

This makes me very angry! Jimmy and I are not together, and he is in a rehab program. I work for AT&T and have done so for over 20 years! I am not a drug dealer! The medications I get are prescribed to me and are none of anyone's business! I am so sick of being harassed for the past few years over the drugs I DONT sell and DONT do! If anyone has a problem with me, please come forward and I'll happily inform you you are way off base! If I find any more remarks on here, I will sue for slander and defamation of character!

Perhaps, a liable case(liable because it is a written forum)is what it will take to stop people from posting stupid lies on these sites. I cant say that I blame you, as I would pursue it too, best of luck! I've known you for a while and honestly you really wasn't like some of the company you kept.

Hey old pal, thanks for your kind words. It means alot to me as most have turned their backs on me. I have been exposed to people thru my husbands and I try to be nice to people, but I have given up on that! I have had nothing but people stealing from me and causing me unbelievable trouble. I work and I am a recluse! I am afraid to stick my nose out the door or come to KY to get away from everyone. I truly believe you are judged by the company you keep, but I am an idiot that tries to be nice to people, feed them, and advise them to get of town while the getting is good! I have cut everyone off stay alone and I'm just the crazy cat lady! I work, every day but the law harasses me to death! I want to leave here so bad I could die! Thanks again for knowing I have a friend out there. My only crime is guilt by association and trying to help and give advice to the underdog! Oh well, I have lived and learned the hard way!
