I dont know why the police and parents havent learned this yet but the people they are arresting in TOWN and the ones like this boy and ruining the rest of their lives because they sold some pot to someone and now will forever have this on their record are NOT the ones they need. They need the guys who SOLD whoever the kid got that weed froms guy. They need the ones up in NY and Paterson where all the heavy weight is coming from, not these small timers. Their wasting their time, energy, money and jsil space on the wrong people. Instead of giving this kid a chance at life he will forever have this on his record and wont be able to get a REAL job one day when he grows up and realizes that mistakes he made. And yet out there somewhere is the guy who is bringing pounds and pounds of weed or heroin or pills into New Jersey and New York sitting at home in his house and nice car that we are just ignoring because were too busy putting these poor kids in jail who don't deserve to be there. I know for a FACT the Vernon Police arent doing as much as they can with the information they have and can get. Bottom line is this kid was of course wrong in what he was doing but why ruin his life with jail and drug court on his record when they can use him as a clue to get to the BIGGER guys who are the real problem. Take one dealer off the street and there will always be someone to fill his shoes, but get these big guys out of the picture who have the connections to get the pounds of weed flown into the state locked up and theres NO one to take his place, and then that eliminates an enourmous part of the small time dealers like this kid. The energy needs to be redirected ... and to get the kids they find with drugs on them or selling them into rehabs and treatment centers, not jail! And to all the people on this thread that are SO concerned why dont you get off your computer and DO something about it!? Actions speak much louder then words do.

“Good luck with that !!!!”

Absolutely. Time to lift the federal prohibition on cannabis and bring the industry above ground where it could do some good and put the money back into the economy instead of the hands of criminals who get kids to do their dirty work.

Do you want to know why the cops dont go after the suppliers? Because the suppliers give the cops kickbacks to allow them to opperate. Cost of doing business. In return, the suppliers will give up some some of the weaker dealers so the cops look good in the papers making arrests. If you start asking enough questions you'll learn which cops are involved. It's not like its a well kept secret. This is also the reason marijuana will never be completely legalized. Its big political business. As for the kid selling drugs in the high school parking lot, he made his own choices. Nobody forced him.

Yea; but, someone CERTAINLY enticed him to make that mistake. Wonder if that cop has looked in his own backyard?!

I love the "it's not my fault" thinking these druggies have. They'll blame anything and everything for their problems, but will never step up and take ownership.

My father always taught me that the biggest collection of criminals in any town, are normally it's police force...I have seen nothing over the last 40 years, that changes that view for me...very sad indeed.

I was told "if you want to live a lucrative life of crime, become a cop"
