    No doubt they will all get off with reduced sentences…if they ever make it to trial. Can you say “skip town and try and find me”?

    I would bet money that these are the dealers that supplied Moses ‘Moki’ Rocker , who lived on that same street and after a long battle with ice addiction , committed suicide a few weeks ago , after yet another relapse into ice addiction . He is reported to have walked to score from his dealers . These people should be held without bail and charged to the fullest extent of the law . They are killers .

    Drugs & guns. The classical combo where one enhances the effect of the other.
