Drug dealers come in all races...and sexes..let me guess her charges aren't as bad as the young boys that were apprehended days ago..she has a better reason for her actions!!! Yeah right.. Thx PO PO another thug off the streets.. mean that's a mean that's a woman, I thought it was a damn man!!!!

Any one want to bet she gets

Any one want to bet she gets the Escalade back? Too much owed on it, someone else's name on the title, etc??? She must be doing pretty well but doesn't know how to be low profile. Put her picture on the front page and on the news several times so all the dopers will know she's been busted and will be looking for a way out by providing substantial assistance to law enforcement. It will hurt the efforts of the cops but if she can't snitch her way out it will at least get rid of her for a while.

Here she goes again

She's smiling in the picture because she knows that all they'll do to her again is put her on probation, make her do community service. What better way to meet new customers than raking leaves in the park, or whatever community service is supposed to be.
