Amazingly good job to the fine gentleman and ladies who took part in this to clean up Wooster. I work at KD's Pizza and got a front row seat of some of the drug busts and a 4 to 5 hour police stand-off right across the street! I have noticed more and more drugs being sold around Wooster(in my employers parking lot too!) Im just glad they took the trash off the street and hope the parties involved get the fullest extent of the law. Teach these scum that Wooster is not going to tolerate this. Other than that, alittle excitment for a few hours watching the amazing tactics of the police up close and live. Thank you men and women in uniform.

Yes, I agree that that it was a spectacle and I also agree that Chris has endangered himself. He just opened him/herself and KD's up to retaliation to Detroit thugs and other P.O.S. vultures of society.

Amazing..BS.. When was the last time you saw Anheiswer busch do a drive by at a coors factory?

NEVER BECAUSE IT'S LEGAL!

What a waste of taxpayer dollar! I am sure this won't even make a dent in the area. However, I am sure the cops, lawyers, co's, judges, etc will get more money.

I thought those people from Wooster, Ohio learned their lesson from the last drug bust in 1998, well I guess NOT. Well, the rest of those thugs need to be arrested now and get them off the streets as well. I hope the Wooster police have not stopped looking for them now just because they have arrested 19 of them. Go get the rest of them right now. This world is crazy and people do not realize it is about to come to an end. What they need to be doing is getting their house in order before God comes again. My heart goes out to those people who house's got broken into and I pray that they are safe and out of harms way.

Hey 'praying time'... pray that "Chris" reads what we wrote, about themself putting him or herself out there for realizing the retaliation that could easily take place for this forum remark they made! Because most of these arrested people are going to only have a slap on the wrist and be right back in the same pizza neighborhood!!! I'm just sayin'.

A BIG waste of taxpayer money... OH WAIT the government only spends $2.00 per person per year on the so called "War on Drugs" which is President Nixon's concoction against free speech and other civil right's movement leaders and their followers. Why in the land of freedom do others with more power impose their Quaker Style views.

Wooster police are petty and if you realized how much money they spent on this "raid" compared to the actual worthiness of the indictments you would be pissed off.... Let alone, all of the harassment they treat descent citizens with in the big little city of Detroit...oops sorry, Wooster.

From what I can tell south east Wooster is still ridden with drug trafficking. Has this raid effected the trafficking? No. Its only pushing the trafficking to the smaller towns. Something I'm not that happy about.

As long as marijuana is worth more than gold and heroin worth more than uranium, we will continue to have people willing to kill each other; willing to kill police charged with fighting these useless wars; willing to kill children caught in the crossfire.

When any drug is prohibitied, an underground market is immediately created and moreover because it becomes dangerous to produce & distribute, the drug's value is artificially increased.

When a rapist or robber is arrested, the number of rapes or robberies in that community goes down. But when a drug dealer is arrested, the number of drug sales doesn't diminish. All we are doing is creating job openings for hundreds more entreprenuers willing to take huge risks for the chance at even huger profits. Fighting the War on Drugs is just stirring the prohibition pot and it costs 69 billion dollars each year to stir that pot.

To remove the profit motive we must end drug prohibition, so that the government can control these substances instead of the criminals. When we ended alcohol prohibition in 1933 the next day Al Capone and his smuggling buddies were out of business. The same thing would happen to the drug lords & terrorists who, thanks to today's prohibition, sell 500 billion dollars worth of illicit drugs each year to our children around the world.

The membership of LEAP believe that to save lives and lower the rates of disease, crime & addiction, as well as to conserve tax dollars, we must end drug prohibition. A system of regulation & control is far more ethical & effective than one of prohibition.

LEAP has a membership of more than 10,000 like minded Criminal Justice Professionals; all former drug warriors including police, parole, probation & corrections officers, judges & prosecutors, prison wardens, DEA and FBI agents. We have a bureau of more then 100 LEAP speakers.

As always when the need and want for drugs is stamped out where will the traffickers be?
No buyers = No Business.

I really dont think anyone is going to so call retaliate because someone was watching them getting busted. If anything it's a plug for KD pizza. If that was a fact i wouldve been retaliate on a few times on some of the things i have witness. I guess some people really are wimps.

Are you saying go after the user? Sure lets keep filling the jails with non-violent offenders then complain when the jails cost so much.
You go after the seller, theres less sellers than there are buyers.
Its alot easier to catch 50 sellers than 500 buyers.

Unfortunately, for every "dealer" that was arrested, there are 3 or 4 more just waiting to step in and fill those shoes.....This drug sweep did absolutely nothing to curb the drug traffic...Less than one week after this sweep, the same neighborhood was again dealer central. I sat in my car at a Bowman St. business and watched 3 drug transactions in less than a 5 minute span go on...and this was the middle of the afternoon.....imagine what it's like after dark. Take a ride down Washington St at any time of the day and pay attention, you'll see what I mean.
