OH MY GOD YES! DRUGS. ARE. EVERYWHERE!get off of it people. like somebody said up there, you've gotta educate your kids send them out smart enough to know something. You can't keep your kids ignorant to drugs because when they get around them, they're going to be curious. and we all know what curiosity did to the cat.. Ignorance is bliss. but knowledge is power. i'm not saying to indulge them in a drugs because god knows that's what some of you guys are going to pull out of this. I'm saying sit down, talk, and be real. The police aren't to blame. they didn't force these fucking junkies to get strung out and sell to little kids. They chose to them selves. yeah speed trapping doesn't help but would you wana help people that come on here and shittalk you? I didn't think so. Lay off em.
Yep. Education lives on the shoulders if the parents which a lot of these people don't have to talk to. To busy keeping up with the Jones. No pun intended

We all should educate our own about the drugs.

It's time parents are made aware that park should not have younger children there unattended. The community deserves to know. My nephew once found a syringe under the slide. Baseball games are going on and out of town families let their kids run around unsupervised. Our children are playing while heroin is openly being sold and used. There are a couple of dealers that live right next to the park and the police are fully aware. How many need to die before something is done? I guess it will take a death in a prominent family. Then they will pay attention! The DARE Program needs to be completely re-vamped.

Very true. Parents should not allow unattended kids at the park. Police need to monitor more closely.
No no

Braidwood and all surrounding towns have drug problems and until local authorities get the dealers off the streets kids will continue to die.

Lets just tally up and see which town has the most overdoses. Whatever town has the most wins! U know what the best part about an overdose is? The junky did it to themselves. If its a kid that overdoses well then that kid must have been a retarded stupid idiot. Everyone knows that coke, heroin, and meth can all kill u. So if i kid decides to try it and ends up dead..... Its their own stupid fault or possibly the parents. For example when i was a kid i new knives could cut u, fire could burn u, guns could kill you, and so could drugs like coke, heroin, and meth. So guess what i did? I avoided the things that could kill or harm me. Hahahah. I win!!!!

Furthermore, so sorry if u feel offended by my opinion. I just feel that there are enough smart, productive, good ppl in the world today. Its no big deal if a few of the idiots die off. Natural selection. I think a world where we try to protect ppl from everything is stupid. People make their own choices. If someone else is making their choices for them then they are stupid retarded dumb idiots. Thats a proven fact. Ask around.

They arent pushing to little kids tho. They might be pushing to teens, but if u raised ur teen right they wont do it. Simple as that. We all get peer pressured into trying things. The cream rises to the top. Just say no. Its that same cliche thing all moms say... If all ur friends jumped off a bridge would you too? I wouldnt. I might film them doing it tho and send it into Tosh.O

This is the truth. They finally got smart and hired from the outside and they hired a man who'd mission is to rid the streets of heroin. He made a public statement that any citizen with knowledge of drug use no matter how small should call and report it. I hope Braidwood makes those calls. Everyone likes to talk about it and not do anything about it. Well here is your chance. It's got o be a community effort. He wants the information. We all know pretty well if someone in the neighborhood is dealing. Constant traffic in and out of their home, etc. He wants to know about this kind of stuff. If you see a kid at the gas station who is obviously impaired call the police. Many dug deals take place in a gas station parking lot or in the Dollar Store parking lot. Call if you see this.
