    Hats off to the force! I hope the police keep up this great work. Highly addictive drugs and illegal guns in the hands of grade D morons do nothing to contribute to humanity. Unfortunately, this is only the tip of a huge iceberg, but at least law enforcement is making a dent to slow it down. No reason young lives must end with overdoses. No reason crimes against people must happen because of addicts targeting decent people just trying to get by in this difficult economy. No reason for drive by shootings, home invasions, shootings, robberies, and gangs to dominate. Police are working hard to contain and reduce it, so children have a better world to grow up in and decent people can live with some expectation of peace and good will. Hats off to the force!
