"The suspect has an extensive criminal history, including a couple burglary convictions, attempted escape and a DUI."

Hmmmmm . . . TWO slaps on the wrist and a lecture to be "more careful" the next time he wants to break the law?

When our community realizes the extent of what this drug is capable of they will open a facility and begin the cleansing that is needed. There is a way to stop this monster created from a flower.

I agree with marshall96 on this one. So many of these dealers pass through Norwalk's "dynamic duo" (Fuller and Fulton) that they all flip on others to avoid sitting. eventually they turn them all into CI's and they have no one to inform on. I've been out of state since April and I can tell you who's on paper there. Just put the damn dealers in jail where they belong and stop persecuting the users.
