    That’s how you all want to live in this country by way of drugs. Nothing else. No working hard just easy money. When the drugs sold out nobody cares who gets mad crazy or any other way as long as money is coming into pockets. Every thing we do must be for a time. No matter how long it takes its just the matter of time.

    Good job by the police, commendations to you . Drugs and guns are twin brothers. This is how I believe so many illegal firearms are on the street. The borders are too porous. Let’s make a collective effort to assist Law Enforcement to rid the country of the illegal drugs and ammunition that have caused so much suffering and heartache for so many people.

      The police get the drugs in the arrest and then put them back on the streets. I don’t know how that will help the community or the the world? The borders full of corrupt polices. And that does not help

      The polices just have that as a career so that they get their drugs for free, and arrest people with the drugs to keep some for themselves. Corrupt politicians and polices are the ones who is controlling the communities and the suppliers of the drugs. They are in with the crooks, and have to arrest some people to make it look like they are doing their jobs. In all reality they arrest some people and let the biggest amount go to the streets. Watch what I am telling you

        I believe so. I mean it’s an Island for crap sake! How are drugs being imported here when we only have to take a boat/ship or plane to go to another place? Don’t they have securities checking out the products?

    First off, we’re surrounded by sea, so for drugs to get to our Island are by sea or air. So why not check the products that are being shipped or taken on private flight? What I strongly believe is, the gov’ts are probably the ones that are distributing it to some random fellas, so that they could benefit from it.
