@ Linny, Tell your friends Good Luck finding a place with no crime and no drugs and no thefts ! Maybe if they move out to Montana in the mountains they might just fine it ! This is going ON everyWHERE !

@Linny, Don't look to the Lacey Police for help. See: jonbenetstruecasehistory.com / Unite For Justice, tab. Go to the "SHAME ON YOU " box. Try instead: The FEDERAL DEA # 202-307-4000. Report METH LABS /DRUG HOUSES and any COP WHO ARE SELLING DRUGS OR PROTECTING THE criminals running these illegal activities.

I must agree with RedonRed. At first, it seems like that's all you hear about in Lacey. Yes, the problem is getting out of hand, but if you talk to people in other parts on NJ the same things is going on in their neighborhoods as well. I recently visited with family from Bergen County which is quite affluent in most parts and they were telling us of a friend's son who died from a heroin overdose and all the drugs at another high school. It's going on everywhere - doesn't make it right, but it's not just here.

Right Beach Girl... to think otherwise is not living in reality. You wouldn't even have know half or what was going on in town had it not been for this "Patch" that we now are glued to. Honestly it just feeds our curiosity & hunger for gossip. At times its no better than the National Inquirer, really. I also have family in Bergan Co. and its just as bad if not worse up there. I'll attribute it to the money that is there making it easier to put your hands on the drugs. If you want you should all join the other Patches and read whats going on in the other neck of the woods! Your own backyard will look pretty darn good !
Beach Girl February 01, 2012 at 10:04 PM
So true. And I agree, Red, that we wouldn't even know half of these things if it weren't for the Patch. It's a good and bad thing at the same time - at least you know what you're up against as far as locking doors and cars, etc. - it makes me uneasy sometimes because it's going on in my neighborhood, but I am more cautious yet I just have to live my life and hope that my kids stay on the right path!

If you have a rabid dog lose in the neighborhood and the patch alerted you, you would then be able to take protective measures to keep your family safe. If many children around you are dead because of the drug problem in your community and then you find your children, now have the same problem, I'd say it is too late for your child uunless you act quickly.. The Patch and the citizens who post on the Patch are trying to help one another with community problems. I strongly suggest a FEDERAL PROBE INTO THE DRUG PROBLEM and CORRUPTION PROBLEM in OCEAN COUNTY, NJ. The FEDERAL DEA # 202-307-4000 / THE FBI # 732-741-0006 / U. S. Government # 973-645-3030 If YOU DO NOTHING, nothing will change!

If you are all that concerned, you should form a neighborhood watch team. It's really easy and can alert the police much earlier of suspicious activity before it happens. I have one on my street and it works.
WhyohWhy February 02, 2012 at 01:51 PM
Besides giving out these numbers M'Linda Kula what have you done ?
Tim O'Connor February 02, 2012 at 02:41 PM
Excellent idea Mr. Stewart.

forked river school is k-4 what kind of 4th grader has the money for cocaine or even know what cocaine is. but they should stay in jail because finally the lacey pd catches someone with the real problem in our town COCAINE.next is the pills and heroin

Joseph. The cocaine wasn't found in the school just in a house near the school. I agree with everyone on here pretty much. Drugs are every where especially since we live by the water. The boats bring in the drugs like cocaine in the first place. I grew up on LBI and we had FBI drug raids around town like every month. As to our children well being a mother of three all I can do is educate and talk to them about it, hope and pray and stay on top of who they hang with and what they are doing. This is part of life and parents should be caring a little more then some parents do.

@ RedonRed and @ Joe Stewart: See : jonbenetstruecasehistory.com / " Unite for Justice ", tab. also, " SHATTERED SHIELDS / BABICH HOMICIDES " tab I have been fighting corruption all my life. My sister was murdered and years later, both my parents had been murdered. I have NO tolerance for CRIMINALS, even if they wear a badge or call themselves politicians. @ RedonRed: I fight & risk more in one week than most people do all their life. NOW what about YOU!
