Obiously you dont read the lazer often or you would know that most of the 19 in the drug ring have already started court hearings. It does take time though. They were just indicted in December.

The 19 they arrested last year for selling dope have yet to go to court. It made such big news on WSAZ but yet those bums are out ruining again.

Since the police officers go to the trouble of arresting these losers and the judge lets them go. How about when the judge gives them probation/dismi ssals he sends them out of the county to never return. DO SOMETHING !!!

I hear that Mark Wheeler is taking cases away from other officers so he can make a showing before the election.
