    There are well known drug dealers in Martin and Beaufort counties. They are the ones who bring in the drugs to sell them. The police have to know because everyone else knows. The dealers have long standing operations and could easily be caught. It is obvious thee police don't want to catch them. This leads us to believe the police have a personal interest. Otherwise, why would they not arrest these people? The many small timers would not be in business if there sources dried up.

    WE ALL MAKE CHOICES BASED UPON WHAT WE BELIEVE. I WAS ARRESTED FOR THE SAME CRIMES AND MORE. ADDICTION IS A CHOICE JUST LIKE RIGHT AND WRONG IS. I WAS AN ADDICT BECAUSE IT FELT GOOD. IT ALSO FELT GOOD TO HELP SOMEONE WHEN NOBODY ELSE WOULD. BOTH AT THERE TIME WAS A CHOICE I MADE BASE ON HOW I WAS BELIEVING. THE WORD OF GOD IS THE MOST POWERFUL SOURCE YOU WILL EVER HOLD IN YOUR HAND. BELIEVING IN IT IS................ .....WELL THATS YOUR CHOICE AS WELL!

    Addiction is a disease ? Right? How many diseases do you know that the people that suffer from it are thrown in jail? Oh I know, drugs are different!!?? Well, a 40 yr Drug War and use rates have NOT gone down, addiction rates have NOT gone down and we have filled our jails with many, not all mind you, of non-violent drug users!! I say it's about time we treated this problem as what it is a health problem and NOT a criminal one!! Time to try other approaches!! 40 yrs and 1 trillion dollars is enough to convince most prudent folks that another approach is needed!!!

    Carteret County Police department only focus on drug dealing. What about the people that are walking around with Warrents that is wanted for child support. They do not care about that. It seem to me they only focus on certain people, the ones they want to put away. I think when it come to this here its more personal rather than saving the communities.

    They need to come work for the Martin County Sherrif department and head on down to Jamesville. They could catch a lot there. My gosh you can call them and tell whats going on and you can smell it and they still don't do anything!!
