40 is a start, but not nearly good enough, get the suppliers, the customers, the public, the cops, see what is happening, stop wasting time, let's get them all, you know what all the traffic is going there for, and who is selling, all hours of the night, start stopping them, bust them all, this has not even slowed the crackhead and methheads down, your like a mule with blinders on, open your eyes, and use that gun & badge to do the job your suppose to, show them it stops here in sumter county,,,,it is a war on drugs, quit playing around

Sumter county sucks, I was stuck there for a little while. Got stuck on crack, almost destroyed myself totally. I kept telling the folks on 4th & 7th street(in Webster) I wouldn't be there for long. Everyone laughed at me and kicked me when I was down! F*** you all, I said "In 1 year I'll not be here but you'll be here forever!You can't make a housewife into a whore!! I SURVIVED!!!!!!!!!!

I think it is great that they are getting dangerous drug dealers off our streets but it's also funny because someone close to me was arrested not long before this sweep, him and a friend were in on something together they had the exact same charges but my friend's bond was like $20,000 higher than the other guy's because he "knew" someone. They did end up getting the same punishment though. Also, it's funny how you see a guy mess up one time and get kicked to the curb but then the next guy can be in and out of jail every week for different things and always seems to get out of it. So much for fair and equal "justice" for all huh?

War on Drugs is "NOT" a waste of time {sarcasm}. We enjoy locking up the poor for a $$50,000 a year per inmate to build on our Prison Industrial Complex. Like the Military Indutrial Complex, the P.I.C. is what majority of our federal tax dollars goes to.

Not only a war against the POOR, but it also a WAR AGAINST THE CONSTITUTION.

Like Ben Franklin onced said: "If you are willing to give up your freedoms for a little security, then you do not deserve freedom nor security".

We spend billions on a genocidal arm race"

Hell you could get 40 just by going to Coleman, cross the tracks, turn left and pick up the first 40 blacks you see.

Fat Frank could do that but he is too busy with his speed trap.

Let's get them all off the street. I think a dealer of crack or meth should get life in prison or the death sentence. I say an eye for an eye. They kill,disable and destroy so many lives for money. It's sick, no human with a heart could kill or destroy a child's life to put gold on there teeth or rims on there cars. These are drugs that just don't affect the person using them. It affects the child who's mom is hooked. A child that does not have a place call home. And don't forget they sell to young elementary children,telling them it's pop rocks or candy to gain a new client. There is so many addicts that are disabled due to the drug. So many children are in state custody due to this drug. Not counting the cost of the medical cost that go unpaid. Taxes payers pay to support what dealers create. Drug dealers are pure evil and not of this world. I am not rich, but i don't kill or destroy lives for money.

Sumter county is a backwards , corrupt, dead end crap hole. The only people who do not get it are the ones who have not left town in twenty years. The jail system is corrupt, the town leaves nothing to the imagination, and it is a mess of crack, and meth. It has gotten worse over the past 5-7 years and if you want to survive and get away you need to leave that place far behind you. To understand , you have to have lived there. There is no growth in that town, and that breeds no hope, drugs, abuse and a system set to jail even not dangerous criminals at bails set so high you would have to sell crack just to get off a ticket violation. Yes they need to get dangerous dealers off the street, but someone should clean out house of those in power in that one horse town first and foremost.

It does not mean much as there are so many drug gangs operating in sumter. to use other agencies to assist in busts means you are trying to keep them in your good graces, ie. state attorney, fdle, federal. when you have a monopoly in one county it is easy to control who operates and who gets busted, make money in many ways (illegal dumping, illegal burning, etc) besides drugs. Point is many need to look hard, the example i give is a 6 year investigation and surveillance on 2 people one house and asking DEA help for a bust, but now 43 who did not pay there dues, were calling too much attention to the county or other. Remember it starts with who gives the access to operate there. Think about it.
I was raised there but got out "THANK GOD" .there are so many drug dealers there and they are rubbing elbows with the "We are here to protect and serve" yeah ok!!... you are right ...jennigotthehecko uttathere.......
