It is my belief that most area police departments and sheriff's departments believe they can arrest their way out of the drug problem. While that is a noble goal, it is not enough just to arrest and convict. It's going to take more than an aggressive policy agency to solve the "drug problem." It may never be solved in our society

I really think it is WRONG to stereo-type the entire WFPD and FCSD!! Maybe you should do your research before pointing fingers and calling these brainless. If it wasn't for all of the DOMESTIC disputes, maybe they could concentrate more on the DRUG PROBLEM.

I think it all boils down to the parenting skills that your parent's gave you when you was a child and while you was growing up. If they didn't care what you did, then obviously your not going to care about what you do. The kid was and has always been into drugs. Everyone knew his name. It's like the "local" sellers to other drug's, everyone know's them some how. They've heard there name. Travis shouldn't have given them to him, however did travis say "take these pills to kill yourself" no? All these people that hate travis because it was partially his fault, such as the family, think about it..... If your son or family member sold Travis the pills, knowing it was his choice to overdose on them, travis takes them and dies... your automatically going to hate Travis. Life is not fair. Teach your kid's and maybe people wouldn't do this shit

The cops are a big issue! My sister has been addicted to pills for awhile now and the guy that got her this way has been busted several times and guess what happened to him nothing at all, because his parents who do have money pay everyone off to keep him out of jail....big shock!!!!

travis is a good guy other than the whole drug dealing bit, they were good friends and i really doubt he ever imagined something like this would ever happen, but thats a chance that everyone needs to consider when they decide to sell illegal drugs!

Even though I live here, I don't/didn't know any of the people that are being talked about here. I do know that our community is, more than likely, experiencing things that a thousand other communities around the country are also experiencing. For all of our technological advancements, for all of our societal evolution, it has to be said that mankind is growing worse off, not better. Personally, I believe it is a sign of the times, but I won't get into a sermon, because this is not the proper forum for that. But I think it behooves us all to take note of the times in which we live and try to look ahead and venture a guess at what humankind could be facing. I do believe that we should all do our part to lift another's burden; to uplift and encourage when someone is down. Responsibility for taking care of our world and the people in it is the duty of each member of the human race; we should all share it. But alas, clearly that is not what is happening. What does our future look like????

its a sign of the times? how so when dope of various types and description an often via prescription come to the fore every now and then and later on agin...some say an i agree coca cola at first had cocaine in it an from whence did the idiom 'yer havin a pipe dream' come...in this particular day an age an altered state of consciousness is appealing to some who like the feeling and maybe become dopey enough later get hooked on that doped up feeling after an thats why the call it dope..heck..i don no..anyway...sure its a sad state of affairs that for sure needs to be addressed and stressed everyday in PreK all the way through grade 12, and after on tv via public service spot announcements an top that off with the following... you sound like a nice guy but yer way off base an fulla prunes tech...

oops...i should have added booze to the mix thats continually being stirred by abusers an do gooders a like with abusers continuing to win an they will till all drugs are legal and taxed much the same way booze is... legalizing dope will eliminate the criminal element of the dopers world like we did from the boozer's element of our society after prohibition ended. Instead of costing us a fortune..dope will pay for its self and then some...instead of importing whacky tobacy an poppy by products..that farm income money would stay right here at home...yup...legalizing dope right about now could jump start our economy..

not only could and would growing poppies and hemp be cash crops...it would eliminate the need to do battle with the various latino cartels in latin countries and the poppy growers in the middle east...WHY continue to spend billions fighting dope farmeing, manufacturing, an distributing unsuccessfully abroad when as much or more can be had if we decriminalize growing dope and we should since its most certainly a given we can't eradicate dope growers around this world try as we may.....
