I dont know a whole lot about the price of drugs, but I'm thinking that $107,000 is grossly exaggerated!!!! I thought heroin was sooo cheap and that's why so many turn to it when their pill addiction is no longer financially sustainable.

who care if they exaggerated the price of the drugs! They are illegal! Why isn't anyone commenting about the fact they included two young children in their illegal activities! what kind of parent would do this to their children! Putting these drugs up their sleeves! Not only should they be put in prision but they should never be aloud around those kids again! Wow now they are real role models

Yep. youre right. The woman had been convicted before for dealing in a school zone. The kids should have been taken away from her the first time.

Everytime people hear about a bust in Kenton the first thing a lot of people wonder is if it was heroin or pills these days. I usually ask if there was weed involved. I am not surprised when it isn't involved. I smile when I know that. Bust em. Get that stuff off the street. Agree completely with the whole Hardin county slap on the wrist, it obviously isn't working.

I was told in a meeting with Robert Norman that unless there are herion needles on the floor, and children under the age of three who could step on them, or unless you put your child in the hosipital they will not do a thing. My ex is nuts (in st. ritas mental ward often) and uses pills and weed, but am still forced to send kids there. He is also abusive, but they say too bad.

It is ashamed that kids are expected to see parents on this drug whether they see the needle or not the parent is no way able to care for that child.I told children services if something happens to my grandchild then someone will answer to me.I don't want any money of food stamps for my grandchild.I work full time and can provide better than the mom that is strung out on heroin drawing my tax money I work for.I relly hope the new judges are going to set some examples since they will be running foor office next year and they want to be voted for.I would like to see new people at the job and family services office.

we need to take a stand. I have never done herion (or any street drug, and don't do prescriptions either) nor do I drink. I do smoke cigarettes, which I am proces of quitting, so I understand addiction, but seriously, the problem is out of hand. Whatever happened to weed? I have seen what happens to addicts, as was a neighbor to bryan horn and alicia wynegar. I am glad that I know better, but really don't see how anyone can find that lifestyle attractive or desirable. Really? It doesn't look like fun to get arrested every other weekend, to have cops going thru your stuff like welfare junkies at goodwill on half price day, and to lose job after job, knowing the only future you have is in a needle? This is how people escape their problems? Try tae bo for anger, yoga for relaxing, eating for social life and walking for some fresh air......get off the needles, and have a real life.......
