How can someone be released with this amount of drugs on him? This smells bad to me.

Nice work Officer Durkin! I hope that this is a sign that our Chief is ready to admit that there is a SERIOUS drug problem in Cranford. Heroin in particular. I've been wondering if it would take one of our children dying before the Chief attacks this problem head on and loudly. I guess 4 overdoses so far this summer isn't enough? I have two children in CHS and it scares the hell out of me that our wonderful men in blue are not given the right to do their jobs and get rid of this! HELP STOP THIS PROBLEM CHIEF! Please...

I hope they lock away this filth for at least 2 decades. Once he's out of prison, he'll go back to dealing drugs anyway.
