    What a dumb broad-with her child there too.Child should be taken away and she should never be allowed to see her again.Now we’ll have hear all the comments about how sad this bimbo’s life is-no money-an addict-all the sad sob crap.if people like her got a job they wouldn’t have time for this nonsense.I do not feel bad for druggies & drunks.

    its funny how there are no racist remarks for this article, however, had the mother been of color or Hispanic it would have been a different ball game. My point there is scum in every nationality, scum does not come with a race. Wrong is wrong despite your heritage or where you come from. People need to stop focusing on where the person comes from and more on how we can make things better. There are black drug dealers, white drug dealers, and Hispanic drug dealers. A criminal is a criminal they come from good homes and bad homes. We need to stop looking at what does not matter and start paying attention to the things that are bringing our youth down, blame it on who you want but I guarantee that wont change a thing. Wake up!

    Wow woman, just wow. If you really care about your daughter, you will get your act together or let someone else give her a better life..you gave chase to police with your daughter in the care? You need to snap out of it. I hope they give you enough time to clean up and wise up!

      That’s a shame sorry to hear this. It’s a widespread problem to be sure. Larger towns in NEPA are becoming the new slums of PA. I hope they start cracking down in your county soon! They have no choice! No sooner than I was sharing a story of our misadventures of people we knew TOO close to home with heroin; down comes one walking random on a nice quiet tree-lined family neighborhood of nice folks. I cannot tell you how out of place this guy looked. Thank God he didn’t bother no one, but it was the last thing I expected to see!

        Thumbs down? OK fine. Maybe you don’t mind zombies walking around in broad daylight while kids are out playing. Maybe we should just start picking them off sniper style? The govt’ officials have to start to clean this up! The cops are working hard to do their job only to find the same addicts and dealers back on the street after a cat nap in jail. The should be kept in there until they’ve gone through withdrawal and on a counseling and medication program. WITH ankle bracelets. As for the dealers? If they don’t stick to an education and job-training program lock them back up until they learn they are NOT going to get away with dealing drugs. And when they bust the crime lords? Never, never, never let those SOB’s out…ever again. Life.
