Ya know, I agree get the big time drug dealers and put them away forever. The Mexican cartel can out of the U.S., but these small time dealers are a joke and the cops could use their time much better by doing something that's a not a losing battle. This small time dealer will be replaced on his corner in about five minutes. Get the big time dealers and be done with it. Get these small time felons out of prison and be done with it. What a joke.

They follow the path of least resistance, to be picking up these small timers allows for articles like this, that lead the masses to believe they are doing a great job. When in reality they always know who the small players are. They watch, many times they like to call it an on going investigation. In my town we have had the same on going investigation happening with the same people for three and a half years. We are beginning to believe that we have a few in law enforcement that are actually profiting from these small timers in one way or another simply because the big players have been arrested, quickly released, cover-up nothing said in the paper. Etc. I know what you are going to say, and if law enforcement reads this, save your comment for another. After enough time watching the watchers it is quite clear. We have tried to get the state up here to look into some of these things but we have learned there really is no-one to report this behavior too. Again, thank you so much Minnesota for your toe curling uneventful, head turning policy unbinding appreciation to the citizens that complete your paychecks. Not to mention they are so afraid of the cartel that the thought of looking in the direction would cause them to crap themselves as that is a job for someone else but certainly not a cop or law enforcement agent from the pure state of Minnesota. Minnesota is NOT a proactive state in any way. First someone has to die, then someone gets in trouble. The trouble maker always gets set free until there is a death. Doubt it? Re-read all the articles you have ever read in any paper and still say you don’t believe it. We cannot even get the city here to help a small child trapped in a meth house, abused, neglected, locked out so they can do drugs. Everyone in this building has made reports. NOT THING HAS HAPPENED IN 8 ½ MONTHS. A new report was just made by a new tenant in this building. I chose to be there when the call was made. Child protection acted as if there has never been a call about these people, one went as far as to doubt there was ever a problem. Not to mention the social service director himself $93,000.00 a year says he does not believe there is room in any home for the state. Now you tell me, where do we go from here?

7.4 grams??? One quarter of an ounce? THAT is what these "task forces" have stooped to these days?? What an absolute waste of taxpayer dollars.
I know that they often try to employ a "bottom up" approach to catching the larger dealers, but that is just pathetic. It is not productive, and they are "protecting" people from something less harmful than alcohol.
