Maybe if there were some decent jobs there and the law wasn't so crooked, then maybe i bet you more than half of the young men that were obtained wouldn't be in the situation that they are in now!!!!!! DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT BY TRYING TO HELP THINGS AROUND THERE NOT MAKE THEM WORSE, BOBBY!!!!!

yes the law here is bad and there are not enough jobs but that does not change the problem . you and you alone choose which road of life to walk . to any drug dealer who would sell to there own mother and kids or to anybody they should be in jail!!!!!!!!!!take off your blinders and see the world as it really is . what if they sold to your child and they died ? would you still make the same comments. i pray not !!!!!! less you are just as bad

Both of you have valid points but ultimately, it's an individual choice. If these people can look at what life is supposed to be, yet settle for the life they live in Cullen, they are destined for failure. No, there aren't any decent jobs in Cullen, but that's a national issue, you must make it work for you. What's left for our young men, nothing but selling dope, in all corners of America. Cullen needs someone with vision; not Bobby Washington.

Law now days is so currupt its unreal!!! Im from a town where its all there is,is drugs and its the police thats pushing the dealing and im sure thats whats going on here..If you were not dealing for them then they would set you up to be arrested for something you didnt do because you want do their dirty work for them..How else to most cops you know make so a good living,they drive nice cars,trucks motercycles,have nice houses on a 30,000 dollar a year job...lmao sounds currupt to me

ya hafta start at the very top of the line. Some very prominent people are the ones to start with during a drug raid. Ya just take the little scum off the street, ya haven't even made a dent in the drug scene. Cops included.

In my day, men started out at the bottom in constuction or offshore to get a trade and eventually out of hard work and going wherever we had to to get a job to eventually work into a maintenance job . Most people can do it. It does take alittle gumption though.

Cullen has many fine people who try hard in spite of the bad economy, etc. They are the backbone of our community. Then...there is the sorry trash (black and white) who try to make their life richer by marketing the weaknesses and addictions of other people around them. There is a bible scripture which says one will reap what they plant. Those are the ones who end up dead behind Sonic or where ever. Live a life of crime and sin and you will reap the same.

First of all, the young men in Coushatta aren't about working. The majority of the guys in Coushatta is worried bout who they going to hook up with for the night. You can't blame no one but yourself because no one puts you there but yourself. That's what's wrong with the world today everybody blaming everybody for the situation they are in. The guys go to the streets because they don't want anything better then the dope life.
It's not just the blacks because the whites are just as bad as the blacks. It's not a color issue it's the issue at hand. True the cops are the bad ones because the do put it in the streets and get the blacks to work for them. The cops need to be put in the jail themselves. If the blacks would stay off the corners and try and make something for themselves the cops might not would target them so bad. Y? Y? Y? Y? do the people that claim that they want so much more out of life stay in Coushatta? If you don't like the town then change it and get out of there so that you can better yourself. Your the only person that's holding yourself back! Wake up the young guys (especially the young black guys) make something of yourself and stop settling for less than what you deserve or shut up complaining about whats going on because if your not going to change it then you must like it.

You could not pay me enough to move back to Louisiana. That has gone from one of the nicest places to live to nothing but scum!

All the good people need to leave and let the sorry a__ people live in the hell they have created, supported or promoted by turning a blind or scared eye to. You created it now live with it!
