Hey Barry, Yeah but does the Transcript Print in their old fashioned pages when the charges from the summons are dismissed by the Judge or Magistrate ? I think not

Janet, I understand that you defending what sounds to me like she is a friend of yours. However you need to think about the damage that these three and people like them are causing. I am sick and tired of the drugs in our neighborhoods. All you need to do is google the names of the people arrested and you find that it has been less than a year since they were previously arrested, and some with weapons. Sure these people may be sick, but should the rest of us stand idle and have our homes robbed or kids introduced to hardcore drugs? I for one have had it!
