    So 2 years ago this scum was arrested for cocaine possession and trafficking herion obviously the justice system is failing. How many have died because of the poison that he and others like him are allowed to distribute because of weak justice system? I grew up during a period of our country when there was a war on drugs with stiff sentences now we live in a country that is weak on crime.

    What about tin foil hat guy? Morris was who they were dealing with on the warrant but presumably the other gentleman was charged with something? (F) Stupidity, maybe?
