If they could, the police would be doing this more often. As mentioned, funding is VERY limited for such activities. In order to get more busts like this, I am afraid we will have to pay more out of pocket to have it happen.

If the people of Reading want to stop these animals from dealing drugs and try to bring this city back this is what needs to be done. For 1 month set up a curfew and bring in the national guard and state police to help with the under staffed Reading Police and crack down as hard as possible which means start cracking heads and keep the politicans out of it.

That's the best suggestion I've heard all day. Crack some heads, bring in the guard and some marines too, and yes keep the crybaby politicians out of it. These sob's have better weapons than the police. The only side affect is we may see Jesse Jackson or that other jack*** coming to town crying foul. If you look at the list of perps the names say it all.

That if you were standing on the corner, or hanging out in crowds, a police officer would stop and inquire about your doings, not anymore. They just drive by.
Do you honestly think think these individuals will remain incarcerated? What good are round-ups if the drug-dealers are released after being fed three squares and allowed to bulk up in the yard. You call that prison?! I DON'T!
I like Eric's suggestion!

Why are these ppl called scum? Is it wrong to do what you have to in order to take care of your family? I live in reading and i work hard everyday just like the ppl who dont live here! Often i hear ppl say their going to do what ever has to be done if their families ever get low on money so who are we to judge when these ppl go out and commit crimes in order to make a way for their family if their were more jobs in reading ppl wouldn't have to sale drugs
