    I am a close resident. All I have ever seen them do for people is sell them prescription drugs that is for cancer patients and people who really need it. As far as helping the community and the people in it, if taking the food out of the actual poor peoples children's mouths is helping, by buying their food stamps or trading for them with a pill,then by all means let's keep supporting the Ashers and Honeycutts and let the children starve. As long as their pockets and bellies are full, lets forget about the children that are starving. No one in either family is skinny by any means. These drug dealers that are getting fat from other peoples misfortune makes me ill. Lock them up and throw away the key.

    Chris, first of allthe article and newstory says OxyContin. This is a high power pain killer for Cancer patients. It is destroying peoples families. I know they were selling it cause they sod it to my nephew countless times! He also sold them his girlfriends foodstamp card. These folk are crooks. They buy from the people on these pills that are sick and pay them almost nothing. The old woman that lives next to them sells her card for 25cents on the dollar to get pills from them. Those are the people that need to be locked up for a long time. Glad to see that the police are starting to take a stand in this drug war!

    Cindy Ann.....I guess you are one of the sorry, low down people that my taxes support all the time. I work 40 hours a week, pay 200.00 for insurance a month and still have to pay a lot for my medicine. If I was a sorry low life like some of you all, maybe I could get my medicine free too. Oh well, I have too much pride and someone has to work to take care of you guys...

    i agree with ed they need to throw the book to those lazy bums and take their ssi and whatever else they are getting and give it to some old poor person that really needs it and they also need to throw the book at the dr's that are handing this dope out so easily

    How exactly are these people destroying lives? Did they force these people to buy drugs from them and then ram them down their throat? The addicts will just go somewhere else and another dealer has already taken these people's place. Supply and demand. Gotta love America.
