Both busts were in Suffolk, instead of being negative why don't you be proactive.

It is very important for police to bust dealers with drugs, this enables them to have there sons and daughters sell drugs in school, it helps get more cops on the street and to hire more corrections officers, and build more jails.

I know when I lived in Plainview, the best dealers in school were always cops kids.

This country will soon have 25% of the population behind bars for non-violent drug related crimes a whole lot of them for Marijuana possession for person use.

No, it is you who missed the facts. If drugs were not illegal it would not be run by gangs and cartels. Look at how well Prohibition worked out for us.

I have known at least 10-12 "kids" who sold drugs that they got from there Dad the cop. Is this any better then from a drug dealer? Who notices if 5 lbs out of 30 lbs or say 100 lbs goes missing? No one.

There is no one to really police the police.

When my Aunt was withering away and dying from Cancer and Chemo her doctors at Sloan Kettering asked me to please bring her in some "cookies" or "brownies" so she would be able to eat. Being that I do not smoke or ingest illegal drugs, I spent quite a few days trying to get some for her.

I finally do make her some "brownies" and bring them in, and she won't eat them. Why? Well she thinks it would be humiliating to have to have her kids visit her in jail because she took Marijuana to try and survive.

So you tell me the lunacy? this BS war on drugs that only goes to make law enforcement and government employees richer while innocent people die? Or that Marijuana is illegal in the first place?

I know for a fact that many cops skim drugs off there busts for there own profit and personal use. If it can happen in affluent areas like Plainview, Syosset, Jericho and Woodbury where I used to get my stuff back in High School, it is happening EVERYWHERE! Heck, one of my friends got busted with an ounce for personal use in High School, Mr. Officer told him he is taking his stash as a warning this time, what do you think he did with it?

Another waste of public resources on a lost and immoral crusade. Repeal all against victimless crimes like mere possession of drugs. If you are called to serve on a jury for such a case, refuse to convict.

It's about time they started going after these kids who deal in healthy communities. As a Sayvillian, it is import to me that we keep our schools free of hard drugs. I am glad for the arrest of some high ranking dealers. But, their operations are networked and more people need to step in. I also blame parents for not being tougher on their children; spoiling and lax punishment result in the greed driven gang member. More must be done inside the community to flesh out these destructive members of society. It is up to people who operate outside the law enforcement agencies and inside the non-deputized population to do whatever it takes to cleanse their neighborhoods of lethal drugs. Civilian defense starts with the civilian. Do not wait for the government to help you; fights must be fought against this type of evil every day by all citizens. It is up to the people to take down those who destruct the evolution of society and seize power back for themselves.

That is exactly what I did when I served Jury Duty. I will not convict for non violents drug offenses. Let's take the country back from these crooks.

I don't care how they find it, as long as they legally get the drugs out of the system. A large number a major criminals are caught because of a simple traffic stop, but they're still caught.
