How can you write on your facebook that you are so saddened by the lives that will be ruined by this but are so excited that the mugshots (!!) are up? You people are sick animals. Get a life.

Great job. Hopefully the correction in the schools will happen to eliminate the problems. Then I will stop thinking of moving out of town. One drug bust at a time, our town can get better.
