    If only the WPD would now arrest the theft ring that goes around stealing golf carts. Guess it's easier to buy dope than do real investigative work.

      Hmm Cocaine or Golf carts? I think my tax money is better off getting drug dealers off the streets. Im just sure its some underage suburban white kids stealing your golf carts, haha and you think its real investigative work to find them. Here is a hint, take the key out of the golf cart sunshine. Nobody cares about your golf cart. People are killed over drugs. Come down from your ivory tower.

      Golf Carts? You think they need to investigate golf carts more than drug rings?? For real? Last incident I had that required a police investigation had to do with a man that beat my head in with a baseball bat so he could steal my purse - he was later found at a drug house with my wallet and 9 others in his bag. Explain to me how golf carts are more important than taking down drug rings??

    Instead of bashing the young black men we need to find out why they keep running to the streets! Its nt just the parents its society also making it seem cool to get fast money! I know parents working two and three jobs to make ends meet the economy is a mess our country is a mess look at the bigger pictuer sometimes! They need more programs like Bishop Jones to keep these boys out the streets and them sumin productive to do!

    way to go wpd, great job, maybe they should have gotten all the facts straight before arresting the other two for just being in the presence of the wrong person at the wrong time. such ignorance from local hicks!

        Yea the only problem is after you have been found innocent you still have paid thousands of dollars in legal fees that you wont get back. Police should know the law to the fullest to be able to enforce it, duh!

          Maybe they should choose their friends better - most people tend to know if they're hanging out with a drug dealer.

    They put this on the as the first breaking story of the morning like it was that big of a deal. If Tysaun would do something productive then he wouldn't be in this position. And obviously the other two didn't have too big of a part to just catch one charge. sad statistics of washington stuck in the "dope boy" world! GET OUT WHILE U CAN!!!!
