Where are all the regulars who post??? A young man arrested during a drug bust in Newport News??? Oooohhh I guess because "Justin" had mushrooms and Valium and lived in a particular zip code he gets a free pass. I guess that's how it works in the beautiful and wonderful Hampton Roads. If it was Keshawn selling crack in the east end, you'd be ready to send him to prison for life and there would be 50 comments on this post within the first 45 minutes. Wow, you guys never cease to amaze me!

It not Justin fault.
The Black Man make him do it.
He a brother try to make a living.
He need a hug.
Why you be a Hater.
Society let he down.

Sounds just as dumb when said about a white guy too.

WoTof- You are right.

But if he were black, would you have written a post denouncing him- No. So, you are no better then the Whites you call out who don't denouce this guy.

It just seems as though many of the people who post seem to think that crime committed by blacks is the rule and crimes committed by whites is the exception. I agree both should be locked up. I never take up for anyone who committs a crime nor do I make excuses for them.

I read this article, and I didn't see where it said he was black or white, or whatever? Just because someone lives in a particular place, does that mean he has to be white?

<quoted text>
No, it doesn't mean he has to be white. When a robbery, assault, or shooting occurs in a "particular place" everyone assumes the assailant is black. I'm just saying that there is a double standard.

All of the White regulars that would be posting hateful things if this were a Black man arrested in the East End, are to upset to post for THIS arrest because Justin was who they buy their Valium, Xanax, LSD and Shrooms from.

So they are too busy trying to find a new Dealer.

End the war on drugs.
I agree. Our country spends around 20 billion dollars a year on the failed war on drugs, yet there are still Americans who work hard, but still live in squaller and can barely put food on the table.

The war on drugs creates an unregulated black market which drives the prices up. With that comes greed, and with greed comes higher crime rates. The war on drugs has created a hydra. Cut one head off, and several grow in it's place. Be that head a dealer, or some other new and more potent drug to replace those that become harder to find. Instead of regulating and raising money through taxes off of drugs, we have put them in the hands of greedy criminals.

There is no winning this war. It wouldn't even take a third of that 20 billion to invest in better educating our youth, and helping those who need it. Instead we allow it to be flushed down the toilet.

Sadly we won't see wide spread decriminalization. The prison industry is making too much money locking up young black males, and this so called "war on drugs" gives our government an excuse to keep a military presence in South America, where it's otherwise not needed. Then we have the pharmaceutical industry, and the alcohol industry, who feel they'll lose out if drugs were decriminalized. Big labs could possibly lose their billion dollar a year drug testing industry, or see a major reduction. This, in turn, could cut into the kickbacks the insurence industry gets for providing false propaganda and offering lower rates to places of business that enforce drug testing.

This "war" has become nothing more than a giant scam on the American people to line the pockets of greedy, rich, scumbags.

Sorry to rant.

They should just start selling everything at rite aid. The War on Drugs is the biggest failure out there and the government shouldn't be able to regulate what you put in you're body. If you want to do Heroine know yourself out, but if you commit crimes trying to get money for it then you are going to jail. The police should spend there time solving robberies, burglaries,homicides,rapes, aggravated assaults,motor vehicle thefts, not spending there time and our money making drug busts. If there was no black market drug trade and people were able to do what the want to there body crime would go down because now longer would people be standing on the corners slinging and getting shot over it.

So, we throw away the key for Black drug dealers and want to legalize marijuana and mushrooms if the dealer is white? Ummm... that sound's a bit shaky. What's the difference?

As long as this type of thing is illegal we need to be somewhat consistent regarding the punishment.

If you all really want to end the war on drugs get a handle on the kingmakers who are quietly selecting who gets to run for office and who doesn't. A few months ago I got a flyer in the mail inviting me to a gathering of folks who wanted to get Mark Warner to run for Senate (I didn't go...are you kidding?). I kept it because we will all need those names when the next 1776-event starts.

I wonder what his parents are thinking since they are most likely paying his rent at University Suites (which is for CNU students only.) The majority of those kids don't pay for their education, housing, or cars; most don't even have jobs, hence why you see so many frat and sorority kids over there: they don't have to pay for the membership and have more than enough time to do the work required. How do I know this? I went there and dealt with them and knew many of the ones living there. They're spoiled brats from Northern Virginia and to them pot is nothing since they're able to afford the hard stuff.
