Once again LEE Co.POLICE managed to round up a bunch of drug user and not one single DRUG DEALER!!!! One thing about this county is you can break into some one house and rob them rape them and go tell on someone for selling a pill and walk free. I know that drugs lead to a lot of crime but not subutex or suboxen just look how much the crime rate has droped in Lee Co. since people have got into the programs.Currently in Lee Co they are 4 unsolved murdersand 3 of them being elderly people i belive the need to spend more time solving murders than busting drug addicts because the never get the true dealers which are the doctors. Someone recently broke broke into my house stole a a bunch of things including my payrollchecks.. It was 2 people that did it one plead guilty and payed me back the other person wrote several and our Lee Police picked them and payed cash. I tell you the reason they did this is because he is one of their so called CI.

Hey genius, different people work drugs than murders. So guess what? Both ARE investigated simultaneously. By your logic, NYPD should never arrest dealers bc the entire dept should be looking for all the murderers instead. Oh, and guess what? They're usually related. So if you don't have enough for a murder conviction but you can nail the same guy for dealing, they end up the same place..prison. You, sir/ma'am, are the type that make me want to hope for genocide.

I know its easy to get on here and bash Sheriff Parsons, but in my opinion, he is overwhelmed, and most of His CIs and people of privledge are pathologal liars and sociopaths. What can a body do when you HAVE to depend on people of this calliber. the court system is so overloaded all they can do is give bare minimum punishment or build more jail facilities at the cost of honest,law abiding tax payers.Solution, is going to be very long, diifficult and painful. We are at the mercy of our elected represtitives, until they are willing to change laws and work on trafficing from ajoining states all this is only going to get worse. I shudder to think 10 yrs down the road. Our society, the county will not be anyplace ppl want to live, work or raise a decent family. IMHO

Nobody wants to live or raise their children here now, all Lee is good for is to be born, go to school here, LEAVE to get a job, and RETIRE from that job, MOVE back here. Lately though people are not moving back because Lee has nothing to offer them as to what they are used to. Some once they have moved back, move out again in within 5 years when they realize it is the NOT, the place they grew up in. The efforts of the powers that be to keep it a retirement community are backfiring because the retirees don't want to live here either.

Mr or Ms Opinion, you are so right , Who wants to work nd accumulate all their lives , only to come to a place where theres an 7 in10 chance of hhaving it stolen,vandaLized or destroyed by druggies and common theives, Only to have the court system to smack a hand over and over again. once more, MHO

The bottom line is this, as long as there are doctors and pharmacies there will be drug dealers and addicts. In this county there is no homicide and narcotics dept. in out police dept. so genius up there do a little research for yourself. Anyway they will never control the drug trade in this country. Here in Lee lots of ppl don't have degrees or diplomas for that matter. There aren't even enough jobs for those that do. God forbid if you are a felon around here cause you r fucked if you r. So while i understand the dealers, I don't condone the act itself. But if it came down to selling a pill of joint to keep my lights on or my kids fed you can bet ur ass i'm selling that pill!

I wouldn't know him if I saw him. Never met him ever. Just want to know how much trouble turtle and Joyce are in. That's why I keep asking. Thinking that the injuries are not bad really. I mean hoping the injuries are not much. That's all.
