    My uncle and cousin was busted in this raid and the only reason my uncle was arrested was because he was at my cousins house and they had him on vidio.Alot of times people that are caught up in this mess is because they are in the wrong place at the wrong time. Saddly most of those people have to pay for crimes they didn't do.That just goes to show how screwed up our justice system can be sometimes.I always thought that vidio taping people without their knollege was intrapment. Isnt that illeagal? How would you like some one to follow you around vidio taping just waiting for you to screw up. Nobody is perfect everybody makes a mistake sometime whether its being in the wrong place at the wrong time or not. Its not right to invaid their pivacy just waiting for them to screw up. There is alot of know it all smart ass people that have know idea what it is their talking about that like to reply go on.If you have never screwed up then your the 1st since Jesus Christ buddy u deserve a cookie..

    Not all people receiving assistance are doing or dealing drugs, most of them are good people having a hard time. And I agree the only way the drug problem will ever stop is if people stop buying illegal drugs and stop abusing legal drugs. People make a choice to take these drugs and should have to face a consequence for it, but all of our jails are overcrowded full of people who use the drugs rather than the people who are out there selling them. The dealers should get tougher sentences and more prison time and the users should be referred to mandatory rehab programs locking them away only uses up money that can be put to better use and usually achieves nothing.

    I don't know why a lot of people think that if you're on disability or welfare you are a drug dealer. There's people out there who have great jobs making $50,000 plus a year and dealing in drugs. Even some cops and some political officials are selling it.

    I want to thank the Williamsburg Police Department, Corbin Police Department, and the Kentucky State Police for their hard work, and many hours they spent on Operation Take Back. It is time that we take back our community. Drugs are completely destroying Whitley County. I work in a profession where I see the effects of drugs everyday. I see the families that have been torn apart, and the children who don't have food to eat when they go home because their parents have spent all the money buying drugs. I am glad to see the drug bust happen, and I hope their are many more to come. Great job!

    The WPD is aware of drug problems within the police department and in case you haven't followed the news, 2 of the officers are no longer with the department. They are aware of other problems and those problems are being worked on. These things don't get fixed over night. There are procedures that have to be followed with police officers just like citizens. If anyone would like to provide information regarding such matters, please by all means contact the mayor.

    You people who keep complaining about the cops have probably been in trouble before for doing something totally against the law and are just mad you got caught. Law abiding citizens normally don't have any beef with law enforcement. Anonymous posted this statement WHY IS IT SAFE FOR THE WPD TO TAKE DR PRECIBED MEDS AND TRY TO PERFORM THEY'RE DUTY WHEN IT'S NOT SAFE FOR REGULAR CITIZENS ANYONE AGREE? First off, your spelling sucks. Secondly, if someone is taking doctor prescribed medication, that is LEGAL. When you are taking medication (that is not OTC) and is not prescribed by a doctor, that is ILLEGAL. What part of that don't you get? If the police arrest someone for LEGAL PRESCRIBED MEDICATION that was specifically prescribed for them, the charges won't hold up in court. Are you that stupid? How many times have you been busted for drugs? Is that the reason you are so hateful towards law enforcement? Get a grip; if you abide by the law, you are innocent.

    Good Bust? That old lady with the oxygen bottle supposed to have sold one pill. There's a menace to society for sure, They should give her the chair. It's a witch hunt. Sure some deserve what they get, But five or more years for one pill. The punishment does'nt fit the crime.

    Great Job WPD! My taxes pay for those programs that help the "so called" poor people. Granted some do need assistance, however many don't. They don't pay their bills the month prior to the upcoming programs that are offered. I also am required to take a random drug test at work. My SUGGESTION is: Since I must be tested in order to work, those that get government assistance should be tested to receive the assistance. This alone could possibly pay off the governments debts!

    I SAY IT WAS A BAD DEAL YEAH I DON'T APPROVE OF ILLEGAL USE OF MEDS BUT WHAT ABOUT THE WPD WHY NOT STRAIGHTEN THEN OUT AS WELL

    This is for **medicine/or/drugs? Location: Kentucky** Legal drugs are fine; if people are suffering, why in the world would you want to buy them from a drug dealer from the street and not really know what you are getting? That's an easy recipe for a drug overdose or allergic/fatal reaction to a drug thinking it is something that it is not. By the way, quit doing drugs, go back to school and learn to spell. "Blaim" is not a word nor is "desent" or "re leave." There are many more mistakes but I don't have the time to correct all of them.
