Must be something in Dunkirks water that attracts these drug dealers to our area!! They have come from all over the globe to peddle their filth to our community. > SilverCreek, Buffalo, Florida, Puerto Rico,Rochester,Jamestown to name a few based on previous arrests & god knows where else!! And it seems more come after those get arrested.It is like an never ending vicious cycle- with no beginning & no end in sight.Unless a stronger message is put out there >maybe stiffer penalties for out of towner's who get caught selling drugs from an area they don't live in. For instance, a person lives in Buffalo but gets arrested for selling drugs in Dunkirk> give so n so maybe 2x the amount of jail/prison time,or double the fine, something along that line.I bet ya the flow of all these unwanted drug dealers will lessen.

WELL.... To actually sell a product, you have to have customers. So before you make a broad statement about out of towners selling to Dunkirk residents like they come here and force people to buy. It happens in all communities. What a shame that people buy it, sell it, and use it. My life *****, I get by without it.

Criminals don't care about how stict a law is & how tough the punshment might be. So unfortunatley it wouldn't make a differece..

NY is open for business we see on TV. All we will have left will be crime and govt employees if the liberals and activists do not stop or change course.Now I have seen expensive out of character cars in Dunkirk, along the side streets just north of rt 5 near rt 60. I wonder where the money came from for these expensive cars ? I do not think it was from a legal job.

KeepinItReal4U,

So are you against dealing drugs or just "out of towners" dealing drugs? :)

Seriously though, my question is, why is it every time one of these stories hits the news we hear of multiple purchases over months and then often they get a slap on the wrist. Think about it, if the inventigation takes longer then the person is jailed then why even bother?

The war on drugs has been a flat out failure. It brings up the question of legalizing drugs like marijuana. Unfortunately in a society obsessed with 'getting high' and 'being cool' we will continue to see this tragedy carried out. Especially with willing buyers 'drifting' through their lives and sellers looking for the easy buck. Not to mention suppliers in every part of the country.

If you have been reading my previous posts -which I'm sure you have DARKSTAR, I state very clearly that I am against the drug dealing going on!! I ONLY SUGGESTED THAT LATELY WE HAVE HAD ALOT OF OUT OF TOWNER ARRESTS FOR DRUG DEALING THUS I THOUGHT IF THE PENALTIES WERE HARSHER FOR THOSE WHO DEALT THEIR DRUGS HERE WHO WERE FROM OUT OF TOWN GOT DOUBLE PUNISHMENT IT WOULD HOPEFULLY KEEP THEM AWAY & THEN THE COPS COULD FOCUS MORE ON THE ISSUES WITH THE PPL WHO LIVE IN OUR AREA SLINGING THAT DOPE EVERYWHERE.BY ALL MEANS I DID NOT IMPLY DUNKIRK RESIDENTS WERE BEING FORCED TO BUY ANYTHING >>>SO WHERE "OURNOTGONALIKEME" GOT THAT MESSAGE FROM IS BEYOND ME..I AM WRITING IN CAPS SO MY WORDS ARE CLEAR & NOT MISUNDERSTOOD.& DON'T COMPLAIN ABOUT THE CAPS.Now also if they put the drug users in jail as mentioned then NYS would have to build several more prisons due to the fact that there are more users than dealers.

A slap on the wrist? Don't people realize how difficult it is to get a conviction? After all the hard undercover work put in by honest, hardworking police officers..it is not their fault! The court system needs revamping so that when a person gets arrested the conviction and penalty parts follow up correctly with stiffer penalties. I don't blame the officers..I blame the bleeding hearts on the juries and the judges and court system. The police are doing the best they can..but after the arrests are made it is no longer in their hands. Don't you think they get exasperated when they see these same people released to do it again? If I were one of these officers..I know I would be extremely frustrated.

"KeepinIt" I got that message from the assine logic you wrote. I am all for being proud of your hometown, but pick a high school sport and not drug crimes to get all "home town" spirited about.
