    Read full comment…

    About 11years ago we "snitched" on some young men selling drugs next to our house and the next morning our car tires were flat. These young men were white and some came from well to do families. In the case of one of the young men, who happened to be a neighbor of ours, the father knew what the son was doing. To this day when I see the father I think to myself that he should be thanking me for helping to save his sons.

    This was a mild case of retaliation dealing with some wanabe criminals, so I do understand peoples reluctance to "snitch".

  • I have gotten a few thumbs down on this thread. I hope the thumbs down are directed at me, maybe I'm not doing a good job expressing myself, and not at the believe in hope and prayer. Here are some verses that I believe support what I am saying:

    Romans 12:12
    Psalm 27:14
    Psalm 33:20
    John 14:14
    James 4:23
    Luke 18:35-43

    Follow the money: Do you think drug operations give money to politicians, states attorneys, judges? Do you think all confiscated drugs and cash wind up in the evidence room? Who is profiting by having the "known 1400" out of prison conducting business? Realistic solutions are 1) Martial law (expensive and intrusive) or 2) Legalize and tax drugs (use proceeds for treatment and public information campaigns).

He was happy to see the come-back of Hyde Park in recent years before he died in terms of major investment in infrastructure. I guess that we have different definitions for progress.
