    And what do you want to bet DCF will put those kids right back there next week?

    I agree with you Wmassmom! That is much of a crime as those individuals committed. My heart breaks for those children as the dealers 1st priority is the heroin, not the kids. I’m sure they were also inhaling the heroin dust also that was being packaged and exposed to other unsavory criminals that picked up the drugs. I hope that responsible family members will get custody of the kids so they can have safe, happy & fulfilling lives that they deserve!!

    Most any apartment in oak courts, gardens, woods etc would have had the same drugs. I wonder what singled these 2 kids out.

    Heyd, you’re an idiot. You just grouped every low income person in that area with herion dealing. Because its not possible to live in low-income housing without being a drug dealing, gun toting criminal, right? It’s narrow minded people like you who continue to fuel these stereotypes. I’ve worked with a number of families from all those places, none of which fall under your small minded view of what kind of person lives there. There are drug dealers living in every neighborhood, including middle and upper class, why aren’t you talking shit about them?

    Have you ever been there after 3pm?

    Time of day doesn’t matter, you’re still saying that everyone in these places is a drug dealing, child abusing loser. I’ve known many men, women and children who lived in all these places, including Petty Plain, who worked legitimate jobs and were able to get out of the “ghetto” and lead productive, honest lives. All without the help of the drug trade. It’s time, Heyd, for you to pull your head out of that little hole and stop judging people by where they live and by the actions of the few.
