Drugs are here , will be here and always gonna be here. Its sad the war on drugs has only increased usage of drugs such as heroin and designer drugs. Parents need to stop being their children's frieds which happens way to often. Parents give a child choices. So when it came time for the choice to do drugs or not bam wrong choice hooked them.

Oh lets not mention the billion of dollars spent on a so called drug war. Only peeps getting rich are the drug lords and gun dealers.

They are getting a break. We want it to be longer than just a break though.
Booner June 29, 2012 at 05:52 PM
Ya, you needa cox! Blame it on the economy. Drug dealin scumbags! They should just take them 100 miles out to sea and let them off.

A lot of people are negatively affected by the stress of financial worries, but dealing drugs won't solve that problem. Treatment and consequences first...then financial assistance in another form would be helpful if that is needed. The theft and drug epidemic in this town and everywhere is freightening and sad. And yes, it would be nice if every kid had devoted, committed, involved parents, but sadly not all kids are that fortunate.

Someone please tell me why Lenny is allowed to speed up and down Bobwhite Ct every day on a suspended license and sell heroin in school zones yet only warrants a $100,000 bail for his umpteenth offense yet we lock up a mom accused of pimping with 2 million dollars bail. This guy distributes in school zones and in a family neighborhood and is released just as fast as he is brought in. Maybe the hasidic's he rents his house from need to know he is operating a crack house.

Is your head up your A**? Give them a break???? Bad Economy??? I would live in a tent before I sold heroin to some kid. Anita... would you sell heroin if you were broke ? Get a grip !!
fastlane609 June 29, 2012 at 07:52 PM
Drugs are everywhere . Small towns in the mid west are struggling with meth labs. Let's not act like it's isolated to Lacey , ok ???!!!!
fastlane609 June 29, 2012 at 07:57 PM
I am so sick of these scums. Dealers have no hearts, so let's no play the " they had to do it because of the economy". If the economy was perfect these people would still be selling dope. I wonder if a loved one of Anita's was either hooked on dope or God forbid died of an overdose, she would say "ahhh.... give the dealer a break, it's been a rough economy.

The next scandal in Lacey will be in the school district. The BOE will be investigating a complaint of discrimination against the Superintendent. Seems that while she was employed in the Freehold District she got into it with its Suoerintendent and lost. She was told to go and went to Wall. Now the Freehold Super's niece has felt the wrath of Brower in Lacey and is going to the BOE and asking for an investigation. While they're at it the should find out what happened in wall. This could get messy.

@cox you are honestly a moron! I struggle everyday my husband had 6 surgeries in one year lost his job, and as hard as it is raising 3 teen age boys we would NEVER resort to selling drugs! I tried to raise my boys to the best of my ability, fought them to never go down that path.. If you are a parent I can only imagine what your teaching your children, just think these losers who you say give them a break sells your kids heroin and they die from it, will you still say give them a break? People who think like you need a punch in the face!

Anita Cox June 30, 2012 at 04:17 PM
Oh boo hoo cry me a freaking river
billy jones June 30, 2012 at 05:33 PM
Anita you are so right about the economy. It seems to me there are a lot more drug dealers now than ever.SAD BUT TRUE.
billy jones June 30, 2012 at 05:35 PM
If these people can't see that they are BLIND.
todd p June 30, 2012 at 06:16 PM
Drugs are here there never going away get use to it almost everyone has a drug addict in the family. there pharmacies on every corner besides the more drugs on the street the more cops u need and that creates jobs good for the economy its just a corrupt system. I'm tired of people blaming the police for everything just remember the police don't know the law they in enforce it. Law was created to let criminals go. Good old Benjamin Franklin said " I rather let 7 guilty men go than convict one innocent person" so if u wonder why it takes a long time to arrest someone u know is up to know good its called building a case

I WAS INSIDE THAT CONVENIENCE STORE WHEN THEY WERE ARRESTED FOR DEALING. IT WAS A LITTLE SPOOKY SEEING YOUNG KIDS WITNESS THIS.
Condor July 01, 2012 at 09:46 AM

THESE TWO ARE GREAT PARENTS

Every article on here, about Lacey Twp is about DRUGS, THEFTS, and ASSAULTS. I would personally like to thank the worthless LACEY TWP COMMITTEE MEMBERS FOR USING THEIR POLITICAL POSITIONS FOR THEIR OWN PERSONAL GAIN AND FOR LETTING OUR WONDERFULL TOWN GO TO SH*T. I CANT EVEN ATTEND OR WATCH A TOWN MEETING ANYMORE WITH SUCH AN ARROGANT SO CALLED MAYOR OR THE LITTLE CHINEESE WOMAN WHO CANT REMEMBER HER OWN DECISIONS FROM THE LAST MEETING OR THAT CHUBBY PAWN WHO BAGS MY GROCERIES….I DON’T EVEN WANA GET STARTED ABOUT A LITTLE BIT OF LUCK. SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE ASAP THEY KEEP RAISING TAXES FOR WHAT, I DON’T SEE ANY NEW OR ADDITIONAL TWP WORKERS OR COPS ON THE ROAD I JUST READ ABOUT THE CRIMES GETTING WORSE AND THERE HAPPENING EVERYDAY. SO DON’T GET UPSET WHEN YOUR HOUSE GETS BROKEN INTO AGAIN OR WHEN YOU GET ASSAULTED FROM A DRUG DEALING HOOKER AT THE FOHO AND DON’T COMPLAIN WHEN YOU GAMBLE ALL YOUR MONEY AWAY AT THE LACEY CASINO NEXT TO THE NEW MARINA BUFFETT ENJOY YOUR STAY…I LOVE LACEY
