The penalties for "conspiracy

The penalties for "conspiracy to to commit a crime" are harsher than the penalties for committing the actual crime!

this must be why Richmond

this must be why Richmond County pulled up in parking lot of a school this am close to Warren county. This was very scary to pull up to school to drop your child off in McDuffie County / near Warren Cnty and see 4 Richmond Cnty cops arrive at the same time.

Glad this happened today and

Glad this happened today and hope and pray that they keep striking hard and fast and often! People that deny there is a drug or gang problem in McDuffie and surrounding counties better wake up! It is in the Middle School and High School. Don't think that because we are a "small town" that we are immune! It is here and if you have a child here or anywhere, you better get in their business and stay in their business! Thanks to the Law Enforcement that have a very hard task!

Lets all just face it, This
Unpublished

Lets all just face it, This is a problem that will never end. Not in this life time for sure. This will not put a dent into this problem. I wish i could come up with a way to stop all the drugs. There are people that get pain pills from there doctors and then sell then on the street.

Funny thing about this "

Funny thing about this " story " , every suspect is charged with " drug conspiracy " - what the hell is that ? Talk about law enforcement secrecy - do we need a Freedom of Info request in order to find out the true story ? We already know the AC will just go along with whatever officials tell them , and for all of you posting about this - YOU DO NOT KNOW THE TRUTH YET SO WHY ARE YOU COMMENTING WITHOUT ANY FACTS ?
