Please keep up the pressure on these druggies. Please continue to rid Salem of the thugs and punks from the inner city of Youngstown who have NO business being in Salem whatsoever. GET RID OF ALL OF THEM AS FAST AS YOU CAN. Perhaps a few drug dogs would help in the effort.

These thugs wouldn't be in town if there wasn't a demand for them.

Get rid of the criminals, including the users. Get rid of the Y-town punks, get rid of the Alliance punks, get rid of the New Jersey punks.

Save the city for the 96% of law-abiding citizens.

It is absolutely STUNNING that someone could punch the 'disagree' button on my posts. To do so implies that you favor drug trafficking in Salem. INCREDIBLE!

Better than doing nothing ! Is it ?

You know whats sad,All the time spent invetigating,all the man hours spent on the arrest and possibly some court costs,

I bet none of them will see the inside of a court room ,little lone jail time,

If qucity wants to comment .Let him use a little common sense.

Police dogs. Fine come up with the $20000 or 30000 it costs/dog and handler.

Here's some figures Kozy. Over $ i trillion spent in the last 40yrs. $15billion spent by fed, gov in 2010 .

Yet they claim where losing the fight. As long as theres a user ,there will always be a seller. Ape\pereanlty they need to address the problem in a different way ?????

Totally agree! We don't need the scum bags.Throw the book at them! I think Salem needs a direct Hot line for tips on drugs and pushers.Maybe anonymous so the afraid can call too! We can talk all day, but if you don't help they keep poisoning our kids. And yes there is tons of adults too not just kids. Start hammering the users as hard as the pushers. No users no pushers. No fines, lock them up.

So much has to do with all aspects going by the way of a gentle, politically correct justice system. Maybe some serious no freedom jail time would work.

The Russians still have places in Siberia.

The Cali. prisons are full of gang members who continue to control the drugs and violence on the cities streets.

Yes, ladybug...jails should be to teach someone they did wrong and they sure don't want to go back to jail. They have become country clubs and offices for the criminals to run their activities outside the prisons. Enough already!

The grammar on these posts is ALMOST as bad as the issue at hand. I notice the quote on the amount of tax payer dollars used to fight the "war on drugs". Do you truly think that we are winning? How can we win that war when OUR own government is who is supplying the drugs? If anyone doesn't think this is true, you are simply sheep. I commend the law enforcement officers doing their jobs but this problem is FAR from being resolved. Looking into some sort of legalization would make sense but then the government would lose money on many different levels. Why do you think the Federal government won't legalize cannabis? One simple answer... because hemp takes away from BIG OIL. We COULD be living in a much cleaner environment by utilizing hemp and hemp fuel(did you know Henry Ford designed the Model T to run on Hemp oil?) The boys from "The Yo" or the "Jersey Boys" aren't going anywhere anytime soon. Because there is demand.

"And like i said before you bettwer check on the price of a police dog. Training,officer training and up keep."

Ladybug, there is grant funding available for this. Salem can pick up a quality NDD for $4,500. That NDD would pay for itself overtime. Grant funding is available to assist that cost. The same with training. Salem can designate one our own officers to be the handler. The cost isn't the dog or the handler. The problem is the way the DTF has been delegated for all local agencies and how the costs have been regulated for involvement.

If Salem was to obtain a NDD, as a Salem residential homeowner, I would rather pay out a tax on a tax levy to fund that NDD faster than the notion that a tax on a downtown revitalization project will drive out crime and drugs. (Sorry Mr. Cahill that wasn't intended to diminish your downtown plans.)

Just the presence of that NDD unit in a city controls drugs.
