    You could create all the jobs you want. But that doesn't mean a drug dealer is going to get one. Only honest hard working AMERICANS are going to work and pay taxes so people like him can live for free and sell drugs! I don't believe anybody made him sell any drugs either! he got what he deserved!

    I wish people would get a life and stop judging people so much. We all make mistakes and no one is perfect but God himself. We should be trying to help young black men instead of tearing them down. Create some jobs if you have the power to do and give people a chance who didn't have a chance to make. Then you wouldn't have the time to sell drugs and waste your time making good people in bad situtions look bad.

    How can you be mad at the drug dealer? They are making your family members or friends do any drugs. Your family and friends have made their own decisions to do what they want in life so be mad at them not the one who sell it. And if they were to get rid of all the drugs, the drug pushers, and sellers, people would only find something else to get addicted to. For an example, house cleaning supplies, what you want to do, get rid of them too?

    People just don't want to do an honest days work anymore. The young'uns want it all "now." They haven't been taught to work and save for the things they want. Selling drugs is quick money and they don't care who it hurts.

    Who cares what they do to get these people off the streets. They need to do whatever it takes!! I have a family member that has smoked crack and like another person put it up here......he is and never will be the same person again.

    Tulips, Your comment reminds me of an inmate about 20 years ago. I am a retired correctional officer and am retired from the USMCR. About 20 years ago I would run 5 miles every Wednesday morning. I would get the Runner’s High when I ran. When someone jogs, the brain will release endorphins into the bloodstream that cause euphoria or runner’s high. In other words, this is a release of nature’s pain killers into the blood stream. An inmate, a convicted cocaine user, told me I was just as guilty of drug use as he was because I got my runner’s high. He was serious!! I guess you can add people like me to the list of drug users such as caffeine addicts and nicotine addicts.

    Heck...everybody is doing some type of drug whether it be legal or illegal. Do you have to have coffee in da morning? guess what you a caffeine addict! Do you have to have a cigarette? guess what you a nicotine addict! Are you taking meds for pain? guess what you a pain killer addict. No...legal drugs won't get you jail time...just affect your organs in the end so the pharmacuetical company can keep rackin up on your money! You have more people dying from heart disease,strokes,cancer, etc than those who "O.D" Go figure! If the man sold crack to the undercover...why wasn't the undercover arrested as well? I mean, hey he did buy the stuff ya know. LOL!

    Actually that is not true. It depends on the person. There are alot of big business men and women, politicians and etc who have done it. Some people can handle it and others can't.
