i dont think you all would be making such comments if it were someone close to you that was in the center of this mess. They did wrong and they will be punished but they are all someones son/father/friend etc. so have a heart at thee families difficult time.

yes i would and yes i actually did at one time and he did his time and turned his life around...these people need to learn their lesson and get real jobs and find something that helps the community not tear it to bits by slowly killing its children and young adults. you, if you are a mother, you need to get yourself help if you feel sorry for these people...maybe talk to carly devage's family and ask how it feels to find out your daughter/sister/mother was left for dead on the steps of hanover hospital or maybe sean grimes or donnie haar or any of the other people whose children or family memebers have overdosed and died in the last few years how it feels to be them maybe that will change your mind and yes i have every right to say this because i have lost someone from an overdose and had someone in my immediate family thankfully get arrested and charged had some sense knocked into them

Yeah they may have done wrong, but they did not "kill" those people, it was there choice to get the herion and do it, it was there stupid faults, and i know the majority of the people on there and half of them dont even sell there just addicted to coke/herion. And if the cops would have done there jobs and supposably were watching him they should have arrested them then, i think you should send half of them to rehab and the other half could really give two shits if there in jail.

They won't. They'll all get slaps on the wrist, then get set free to continue their slimy lives doing the same thing. Sorry, but that's real life provided by our justice system.

Bull F'in s**t!. Execute every one of these scum bags. Make an example of them. Who here wants drug dealers in their community? Our society enables this kind of behavior because the punishment isn't sever enough.

well this was never much of a secret "opperation
smackdown" alot of people known about it for 5 months. so everybody chilled out on it for a while.
hanover trys to act like the dammn FBI & they always
set themselves up because now they didnt get all the
top dogs. & before all you people start running your
mouths (as always) remember most of these people are
young kids, dont sit here & talk down on them & say
bad things..that makes the whole situation worse
especially if their family sees those remarks. when
stuff like this happens in your community you should
want to help, & you should wana see these kids get
clean & live a happy life. but maybe some people
just wont understand until a loved one gets taken
from you as a victim of heroine, especially when
you had no idea they were even using the drug.
they try it once & it takes over their brain, life
& body.

you know what I have family who have done these things and I am glad that they have been caught and busted as well as these people. It may take the rest of their lives to change their ways, it has taken one of my family members lives.
However, sweeping this under a rug doesn't help. These arrests make everyone accountable their family included. I agree maybe that it is splashed all over the news can hurt their loved ones but this is not the media's fault.(Along with the evil comments made by some here on the forum.) Take comfort in that old saying, what goes around comes around.However, It is these individuals who decided to take themselves and family down with them.
Truth hurts but it can help you change!! I just hope this is their chance and that they take the opportunity to change instead of loathing themselves and blaming others.

So they drove to Baltimore to buy it from a dealer? Lets follow this farther through the chain and bust the dealers in Baltimore who deal to these kids who pull up in their cars and buy it without even leaving their seat. Drug addicts need help. They should all receive appropriate punishments. Prison keeps them off the street but some just come out and get high all over again. Jail and rehab or rehab while IN jail. We need something that WORKS. Believe me, no one is happier than I am to see these people get busted. I want to see even more. Kudos to our law enforcement who battle with this daily.

Who is saying that the problem isn't here? I haven't met one parent yet who wasn't aware of the depth of the problem.

That is Bull Sh!t I know a few of these guys and they need to rot in jail... They are what you call murderers!!!!!

It was pretty funny when one of these guys lived down the street from me it was a drive through service. People would pull up and turn there 4 ways on and run into the house quick. We also heard one say "wait until you try this shit its better then the last one." They didn't even care that we were standing on the porch. LOL Idiots!!!! Everyone knew in the neighborhood what was going on, then we started seeing police around here a lot... Now we know why...

Glad they got caught!!!!
