Great job BSO, keep up the good work. However, this is nothing more than political bandstanding by Lamberti just prior to the election. Navarro used to do this also just prior to an election.

The sad truth is that this operation does not take the dealers off the street. They are replaced in a day. What "truth" stated above is the truth.
Stop the prohibition of drugs, take the incentive away.

Anyway, the people who finance and organize these criminal organizations are rarely arrested and/or prosecuted.

The people that ultimately organize and finance these criminal organizations are the prohibitionists.

The prohibitionists of the early 19th century didn't take very long at all to figure that out. I wonder if people in general were just that much smarter back then.

Oh well. At least it's fun to watch the social conservative types suckle at the gubmint teat for their protection from drugs.
Charade they are.
It is Big Business to keep the Prohibition Status Quo! If finances the Courts and Prison systems, and helps the Police Justify their jobs! Ever watch the show Cops? Most of the arrests are small time drug users! Is there no other CRIME that they should be taking care of? What about Muggers, Rapists, Dui drivers, and violent crimes?

I think they are too busy being muscle for the gang to have time for that kind of thing.

We shouldn't expect to much of them, they are just henchmen after all.

Why the citizenry allows this is beyond me. Stupidity and a general mental malaise is the simplest explanation.

Dania Beach reminds me of the planet Mars in the movie Total Recall. Its full of deformed mutants. I've never seen so many ugly run down people in my life. What a dump.

You are right!!! All of that work they thought they did and half of the so called "drug pushers" they arrested are actually drug users. The number (60 whatever) is just for show!!! About 20% of those arrested are smoking the drugs not selling it, but it make BSO look good and that's what really matters.

<quoted text> Even if they don't make bail, there will be another 85 to replace the ones arrested! How many BIG TIME dealers did they arrest? The answer: NONE! You know, the ones that deal in DOZENS of KILOS of Cocaine! While the Police are PATTING themselves on the back for a job WELL DONE, The higher level dealers remain free! Nothing but P.R. and grandstanding by BSO! Do you think this type of Drug Dealing is a new PHENOMENON to DANIA? It has been going on for decades! By Saturday, you will still be able to get all the crack you want in Dania, as well as Boynton Beach! These raids only change the low level street dealers, and do nothing to STOP THE SUPPLY! But I guess it makes for good Press, and makes people believe the Police are really accomplishing something!

Dania Beach, once a dump always a dump. This town is a ghost town along US-1 they missed the revitalization big time! Hollywood did it, Fort Lauderdale too! Dania the Dump, Browards First City and behind in the times since 1904....
I wonder of Mr Mayor Jones likes this egg on his face?
Yeah, this would never happen in Hollwood. Just take a look along US1 and Dixie Hwy. Looks like some people are looking the other way. Oh yeah, these are the people that offer to escort mafia drug shipments.

Hollywood is Niceville USA. They don't have crack dealers

Keep on arresting them until the message is clear. Dealing crack will not be tolerated anywhere in Broward County. It seems the County has been a magnet for 5cum. The only way to make life better here is to punish all crimes. Drug dealers cause many other crimes like robbery, theft, & prostitution. Drive the scum away. Bring the family tourists back.

Broward County has one of the LARGEST Jail Systems in the Country! Filled with small time Drug Users, and Petty and POOR criminals! I see that is working out well! Do you think these street raids are a NEW IDEA?! I have lived here 30 years, and this has been going on for at least that long! Your answer is to keep on arresting and BUILDING more JAILS! Even if I agreed, WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO PAY FOR THIS?? Just throw more MONEY AT FAILED POLICIES!
