Yeah, victimless crime

Who did any of these people harm...

Yeah, these criminals didn't do anything.

"They were just criminals doing their job and criminals have rights too!" Is that what you're saying? Do you think it OKAY to have gun-toting criminals walking around selling poison to your children? Do you happen to have a inkling of an idea as to the life and family destruction that heroin use causes? Any idea at all?

Tell us all the truth. Did you just get through firing a half gram of heroin into your arm just before you made your post? Geeeez......

Something is not working

The common factors among these three defendants are dope, weapons and they are on probation. All were being picked up for probation violations when they were caught with the goods. Probation officers in this case are doing an excellent job. Too bad they are swamped with paperwork and an infinite number of "clients".
I hope the NC Drug Tax agents get to collect the taxes owed on the dope seized, especially the marijuana guy. Let them repay for all the moneys expended in processing these cancers to society.

Pot isn't dope it is a Plant...

So pot is cancerous? why is it used so much medically? why do they give it to people who are under going chemo? i mean if it is wrapped in tobacco paper then yes that is cancerous..... So what you are saying is a pack of Marlboro's should be illegal, as well as a box of stogies? get real man. And to the person about open borders... I did move I just like to look back in time and see how backwards my old home is. And to everyone else, Im not defending the heroin charges or the gun charges so don't get all worked up.

If North Carolina would fund

If North Carolina would fund drug courts, then the burden on the probation officers would be lessened.

Why the difference...

between the amounts of their bonds? $405,200 for one perp...and $20,000 for another...with both being charged with weapon possession by a felon plus the drugs.

The one with the highest

The one with the highest bond had more drugs in his possession and he was within 1000 feet of a park. His charges are more serious therefore the bond is higher.

WEED

Knowing how many people were arrested in 2011 for marijuana related offenses, let us calculate the cost of this incarceration for taxpayers.

With 757,969 individuals incarcerated for marijuana abuse, at $21,006 a pop, that is $15,921,896,814 to keep these individuals imprisoned for one year. At this rate, over the course of 36.8 years, $585,925,802,755 would have to be coughed up by the American taxpayer to clothe, shelter, offer medical, dental and psychiatric care, maintain, transport, and educate these individuals and maintain facilities for them to live in. This — $585 billion over more than 30 years — is the grand cost of petty crime.

THANKS FOR ADDING MORE TO OUR TAXES FOR POT.....

Missing the point?????

He said" Knowing how many people were arrested in 2011 for marijuana related offenses" I don't think he referred to three people in the stories specifically. I feel we should let the citizens decide! Personally I'm for legalization. Financially it makes sense are we hearing of riots or an increase in crime in Washington and Colorado?

Open borders

Last time I checked there was nothing to prohibit a citizen of NC from moving to Colorado, Oregon or any where else that they please. You want legal dope? Go where you can get it. What is keeping you here in this backward, archaic state??

That is exactly why the

That is exactly why the framers of the Constitution set up things the way they did. If you don't like the way one state does things, then go to a state that better suits your preferences.

Duuhhhh, hey NORML...

...lay off the cannibis smoke for a few days and concentrate here. The arrests of the former convicted criminals involves substantial bindles of HEROIN, not just a coupla "buds". Maybe you got "bindles" and buds" confused....

Kicking off that CRIMINAL lifestyle!

Jamal Goodwin 19 - Convicted Felon, drug dealing and assault convictions. Currently under "active" probation oversight.

Taishaun Sansbury 19 - Convicted Felon, Robbery with a dangerous weapon. Currently under "active" probation oversight.

Ksmsal Kennedy 21 - Misdemeanor convictions for underage drinking and reckless driving. Currently under "active" probation oversight.

These young men have established an excellent beginning at an early age in the craft of being a criminal. If the boys even have mammas and deddies that give a damn, they had best get to work NOW with an attempt to turn them around! Their future isn't looking so good!

Brainiacs

Under active probation, knowing they'd get checked on, and they do this?

Does the gene "pool" have a shallow end?

Vog

DNA (Do Not Accuse)

Why get involved with the devil's work over this situation and insult a man's family? Just you pray that your eternal soul has no deep end in that big pool of brimstone.

re: Brainiacs

I'm thinking the shallow end had a drain left open.

Hey WWAY.......

Can you identify the faces in these news stories ? Like say "left to right they are........"
Or put a caption under each picture?
Not identifying these guys specifically is somewhat disturbing to me
