    A hard working citizen who pays tax dollars just like myself is not a justification for selling drugs . I have a family to support as well and am proud to know that he was arrested and will be charged .. and we are not to quick to judge as he does have a family but hes also exposing his family to this as well which is a concern ...

    Guilty until proven otherwise...some people just have problems that they deal with or they might like the drugs. People shouldnt be so quick to judge because that young man has a family and is a hard working citizen who pays taxes just like yourself...Its the people who are on welfare that have every thing and not a care in the world with ten kids playing vlts all day long...there the ones that should be judged amen!!
