Well thats two gun related incidents because of drugs within three months and a coke bust.With all the money in this town it is only get worse. These drug dealers do not care about life so anybody standing in there way ,they would'nt think twice about pulling the trigger.The police are asking council for money for new furniture ,they should ask for more police.With all the students coming home for Christmas ,the drug dealers will be out in full force. So the police know who the top drug dealers are ,they should keep a very close eye on them.Or they will add another piece of equiptment to there fleet.You never know they might start leasing equiptment to the district,you never know.
