They need to start drug testing everyone at their place of work and a lot of white collar workers would for sure come tumbling down. Fire their******on the spot!!!! They think they are untouchable.......I know many of them involved, engineers etc on the drugs, dealing them etc...it's NOT a low level problem

Funny how the raid only focused on low level thugs on the street. What about arresting some of the fat cats running the pipelines and distributorships who supply the runners on the street? The ear on drugs has been raging for more than 30 years now. The prisons are full of low level dealers, a few mid level players, and tons of addicts. Yet the dope keeps on flowing.

Had they not made so much of smoking weed all these years maybe this meth, crack and all these synthetic drugs wouldn't be a problem today!

Take the "druggies" off the street for what?? They are always going to find a way to get the illegal drugs to sell. That is why they call them "illegal drugs". Some of the people that were arrested had it better in jail then they did before they got arrested. What more can I say?? Get the sellers and arrest them. Get the dealers and arrest them. Then have you really solved the problem?? I do not think so; because for every dealer arrested there are probably going to be two to three more on the street. What more can be said??

Ok so a county with half of it being rural and a small city have the largest raid in history. Not much to really get excited about there. Anyway, good to see this crap off the streets. One way law enforcement ALWAYS gets the big fish is through the little fish. They work like bate. Somebody will tell all for a reduced or dismissed sentence. One thing about punks, their all tough until confronted with living with REAL thugs.

Ya know Feather, not all people posting here have the ability to imagine or discuss certain possibilities. Typically a comment of the type I made leads to intelligent discussion either pro & con or an elaboration on views.

Men of knowledge & wisdom from the beginning of recorded history have always discussed the possibilities of man, the Universe, existence, and issues molding their daily lives.

Unprovoked personal attacks are usually initiated by the dumb classmates seeking to disrupt the intelligent students. Their low intellect disqualifies them from participating & being accepted into the mainstream, which leaves them needing to impress the class with the only thing available to them. Stupidity, ignorance, clowning and making an unwelcome spectacle of themselves, sound familiar?

Zenith, believe NMC was illustrating a point figuratively, and I agree. Also agree with Mullet.

BigDaddy, isn't that something!, remember in early 80's when only place you saw ladies (and use that word loosely) of the night were downtown, ironically a block over from WPD!

As Capitalist, the first lesson we learned is " Supply and Demand." If the Demand for illegal drugs wasn't there, the " supply side " would be no factor.. HMMM... To completely eradicate this drug culture, first eliminate the demand...

Good point MM, I once suggested what would be the fate of all law enforcement, Judges, lawyers, guards, prison builders, etc... if a pill was developed to cure criminal behavior. How would these folks survive and what would become of society?

Whether we like it or not a certain level of criminal behavior is necessary for the economy. Without it many employment sectors would dry up. That is also why legalization is not considered seriously because a huge area of law enforcement would sit idle.

The City pulled a successful trick by pretending to have no drug team, but yet able to pull off such a huge investigation. You'd think dealers would have remembered this trick from before. However all they succeeded in getting were small time dealers who are already back selling.

I can see the differance in the street walkers that make going to the Circle K on Park Ave difficult. I can go there now and not get a street walker trying to sell herself to me.

I'm not impressed either a majority of them are back doing the same thing. Over half of them weren't even arrested for drugs or guns so this was a waste of taxpayers money to Showboat the the BIGMEN whoever that may be!

The task force stated coinciding raids in Detroit,but no major arrests were made in Detroit. Sounds like spinning,

The federal govt helps bankroll this drug business thur the expanded use of Food stamps(EBT) With 48 million people on it,this continually fuels the drug cartels. The food stamp program needs to be investigated, way too many millionaires are being made and they don't pay TAXES.

Do you think for one minute our high gasoline prices effect criminals that don't pay taxes, The Gasoline prices are a burden on the regular guy that works and pays taxes.

It will be business as usual.

I'm not impressed. The Tribune already reported that most of them are already back out on the street.
