    no matter how many "bust" there are , the drugs dont stop. why bust the street dealers and not their source. this war on drugs is so fake.

    Goldsboro courts are a joke and not a funny one. When you have warrants out for you, you go to court and they let you go knowing there are warrants out for failure to appear because the probation officer is not there It is so stupid
