alot of it is being sold out of the elpatio motel and on the eastside . some were very honest white people as well not just some scum on the street . weather it be white or black. you say keep shooting the junk and there will be less crime. What about the ones that leave family's behind like a 2 yr old a 7 yr old a 13yr old a 14yr old 16yr old and an 18 yr old that we are now paying for . I would rather pay for a person to go to rehab and hope all is well and they are better and to get in the community to do some good and be here for there family's and support them then pay for there childeren to eat be clothed be in shelter and anything else they may need. some people do not think and thats why this community is strugling think of the long run not the short come easy fix all . When a family is split on no good circumstances the kids are the ones who suffer and evently or i should say are most likely to be criminally involved when they get older . So one dies and leaves 6 kids behind . If the guy was a criminal you get one off the street to gain maybe 6 more ? just for thought

With whiskey, and from it I often did swear
My parents, they told me "liquors a curse"
But the fate of their baby was many times worse"

"Stay away from the city, stay away from the town
stay away from the men pushin' codeine around
stay away from the store, where the remedy is so fine,
Stay away from those people
with dope on their mind
or you'll live out your life
as a slave to Codeine"
