This is great, good job to all of the police depts. involved. Here is another problem with illegals. I am glad that Nashville is taking a stand, I can't believe how many mexicans are living in Nashville now! The Antioch area is full of hispanics.

I am sure that everyone arrested was not hispanic. As a revocered drug abuser, I used to purchase about 90% of carcotics from the white man and the other 10% from the black man. It is a good job that the law enforcement just completed all the same though. I know the horrible reprecussions first hand that drug abuse can cause. Much applause to the law enforcement involved in this bust.

I know for a fact that they where for the most part NOT hispanic. The names involved here in the Boro are big indeed and the only Illegal about these citizens is what they have done....not where they came from

Good riddance to bad trash. Wonder how many of the dealers were illegals? Get rid of them all. Take away all handouts and citizenship for their anchor brats. Send 'em packing back to where they came from.

Why are we not even half as worried about our citizens..who do not work have never worked..have lived three generations on goverment checks?? they destroyed ten care with all their pain pills. Is it just easier to focus on the illegals?

Most of those men were black men, some was trying to live a decend lifestyle, but all the stigma that the black has to put up with is so hard, the only thing that is left is to sell drugs. Not makeing an excuse to sell drugs, but hey it is what it is.

Stigma or not, no one makes someone make ignorant decisions. Blacks, whites, yellow, red...whatever, quit blaming everybody else, and get an education and a job.

Judging someone based on their race is sad. So much damaging energy spent on hatred.

I will just say this. I have no problem with others that are diffrent races. except when we get treated diffrently or another example mexicans dont have to pay taxes. they want to live here in the US and be free then they should act like it and the goverment should make them pay taxes just as well as we do. thats all i have to say!.

This will do nothing to the drug market in that area. When a dealer goes away, another takes his place. This is all about supply and demand. Drug users need drugs. Someone will meet this demand, since buying and selling drugs is easy. It's just like retail sales. Buy in bulk and sell of in small amounts for a profit.
Why do we waste so much tax money fighting a war on drugs knowing there is no way to get rid of all drugs. Since the start of the "War on Drugs" dozens of new drugs have come up. These new ones are worse then the original ones they were trying to rid the world of. Why, you may ask have new drugs shown up? Because the safer ones got harder to get a hold of.
In fact TN is the worst on legal prescription drug abuse. Hmmm I've even heard of kids today that strangle themselves to get a high. No drugs involved. Even pot would safer than that.

There are a lot of people in the U.S. that don't pay taxes that aren't Mexican. And assuming that Mexicans meet all of the stereotypes generated, they're taking all of the low wage jobs and therefore, their tax load wouldn't be significant, especially compared to corporate manuevers to avoid taxes such as Haliburton's Bermuda office. Be honest, if your brother or sister didn't pay taxes this year, would you hate them with the same intensity that you hate Mexicans? This isn't about taxes. It is about keeping this country white.

There is a big drug bust, all the names of the blacks and hispanics are posted with their pictures. Mark Rowland, the Knight sisters & Chad Smotherman, where did they run to, Papa? They will get their due, its not over till God says its over.

There's a place for Mexicans. It's called Mexico. Get legal or get out.
