I agree with most of what you said Tina, however, we can't stay locked up in our homes. And it wasn't the Holbrook DD's fault. It could have been anywhere that we frequent with our kids. IF he was looking for drug money, I agree; this epidemic is out of control. But we don't know. It could have been he was just broke and stupid. (by the looks of his mug shot, it could be either LOL) So don't think twice before getting that iced coffee, just be alert and aware of your surroundings and keep this kiddies close!

nunzio you are blatently niave. people like you don't even see the problem when it's in front of your eyes. i'm an addict and i come from a family who done nothing but teach me the right morals. sometimes peole make mistakes and don't realize what they are getting into. this is a disease and it has infested plenty of stand-up families.

George, so true !!! Someone who can make that kind of a statement has not idea what they are talking about !!!! Not to say that there is not a percentage that did have a crappy upbringing that led them down the wrong pat...HOWEVER, most addicts come from loving, supportive, educated homes. PLEASE do not comment or throw stones on anything that you have not had any experience in. Too many great families have been shattered to the core because of addiction. Poor, wealthy, educated, every neighborhood...addiction does not discriminate.
