who will take care of these folks when they get out? What government programs are/will they be on?
Their dealing was steady income and relieved entitlement programs. Many will never collect SS , for lack of contributions. The average life expectancy of the group is less than 65 , and many are already on borrowed time. It`s the life they`ve chosen and they knew the risks. Many are 3rd or even 4th generation career hustlers in this town. Few will do much time , if any at all. It`s mainly a publicity stunt , as this has been going on for decades with the same players involved. In the summer of `84 a similar sweep was conducted , during which a 17-year-old boy was "acidentally" shot in the head and killed while being led down the stairs of a residence while handcuffed and cooperating. Another controversy back then was every agency was involved except the GCSO , who had been left out of the loop because many deputies were friends or relatives of those arrested , and they didn`t want to tip their hand . It was soon business as usual for most of the perps , just slightly more covert after that.

Didn't you mean most of them are older and retired! Supplementing their shitty Social Security. Sad someone recruited elderly to sell for them.
Older and retired?? Ummm...some of these thugs have been selling and doing drugs since I was in high school with them way back in the 70's. They didn't just start this profession!!!!

This stunt cost tax payers alot of money. Junction City footed the bill for this Operation Ababag.Now we have to pay more money for all the people that are being held in jail. Of which 80% where old ass people that have been around Junction for years and that have previous drug records. If they would have been sent to jail on those previous records. Instead of being given Community Corrections.Most of the people that get Community Correction with a drug charge,end up getting a violation or a couple of violations. These people hardly ever get their probation pull and sent to jail to do their time. Instead they get work release and they dont even have jobs. They get to go to rehab,at the tax payer expense. Yea,they are suppose to pay this money back. But, if I spend $1.00 today and you give it back to me a year or years from now. It isn't worth a dollar anymore.
Bottom line, I'm not sure how much safer this made our streets.Most of the people they arrested were old and meaning less. Where is the BIG supplier? They could have arrested half those people by just walking into any bar on Washington and on Grant Ave.That would have only cost Tax Payer the hourly wage of a police officer.
The other issue is the 17 kids that are now in the care of the state. All the money or property they took from the parents of the kids that got arrested and any bond money. Needs to go to the state and agencies that have to now foot the bill to feed,shelter and clothe them.

Not trying to give the JCPD any shit, but finally we put all these officers to use. I mean its good to see that their not just pulling over EVERY SINGLE CAR for a ticket, but instead are getting some real police work done. I'm sure they feel the same way. I highly doubt they joined the force to give out tickets. With that being said, the race comments are unnecessary. Every race has good and bad people, and history has definitely played a role in the decline of minorities. Most people build up their criminal records when their young and dumb. Once your in the system, your in the system. It is difficult trying to find a job in this economy, but try being a black man with a criminal record in a place like Kansas....yea, GOOD LUCK. Not condoning any criminal activity, simply stating THAT fact. ..In conclusion, I will say, I have seen a lot of random people walking the streets looking real fiendish in the last 48 hours. I guess they all lost their dealers. But yea, real noticeable.

Nice to see our million dollar boondoggle being used on Spring Valley Road. Bet that security guard was surprised. Why do we need a guard there anyway? Seems about as necessary as a 75 foot ladder truck for a fire dept. where the tallest building is 35 feet. Oh well, with our budget surplus in JC, we can afford 89,000 for a new toy for our fire dept.

If we buy a 75 foot ladder truck, they`ll come and build an 80 foot tall Motel.The one next to JC Naz wanted to build higher , but couldn`t for that very reason. Onward and upward !

anyone notice that the jcpd did'nt release how much money was netted from operation adabag?these are poor people who use drugs they have been in our neighborhoods for years.they are not drug lords or drug kingpins like some of the business men on washington street and 6th street .why did'nt they go after the people who bring these drugs into our area.seems like they left out the meth mouths and pot heads at k-state .most of these people cannot even post bond.our tax dollars could have been better used.

All of you understand what a joke this is on us the tax layers. How much did all this cost? They watch to much tv and want to act like we live in some big city. Do you really think a town of this size could support 90 crack dealers??

Now you know why the Manhattan Police Dept. didn't want to get involved with this big bust of [ADABAG]air,they didn't want to waste the tax payers money in trying to dig up enough public defenders to defend these people many who were picked up because of guilt by association.You can't have lawers trying to defend several people for the same crime WHY!!![ conflict of interest] so where will they get enough lawers for 90 some people? I don't think this was a well thought out plan, that's going to cost the tax payers an arm and a leg, meanwhile most of them are sitting in an over crowed jail on the taxpayers dime. I hear they had to let the sick ones go without bail as they couldn't take care of them, and they were an added money burden for the city,next comes the trials now that ought to be interesting and as tax payers you should attend to see how your money is being spent.And how this all came about that all this money went on something that didn't get much exposure except in the DU where the editor needs a story because people are droping the paper like flies and turning to the JC Post the online JC News Hub.

the big suppliers are the police that's why they never catch anyone worth it, just the people that work for them, and only 37 of them we're actually involved in the drug operation the rest we're bullshit warrants to make them selves look like they we're doing something. wake up there just taking money from us. and that money that they get back will all go to police force not the people

wake up, 37 people we're actually involved in the drug bust the rest we're bullshit warrants and law abiding citizens, and guess what we have to pay for it, and we have to pay for then to be in jail and we have to pay they're foodstamps and corrections when they get out. where's all the money gonna go from fines and bonds oh that's right to the police not the city and if any of it does go back to the city it'll be the smallest amount for pot hole fill in. bullshit wake up and stop letting them fool us and take and spend our money. all those drug addicts and drug dealers will be right back on in the streets doing the same thing in a few months. war on drugs my ass only when they need money.
and people wonder why the economy is failing, stop letting someone else run your life get up and say something, get up and do something, this is all unconstitutional but I guess we all forgot why our founding fathers did what they did. why this country is we the people by the people for the people, keep letting bullshit unconstitutional shit to happen, and we're gonna lose all of our rights and freedoms
