    Maybe the police should be slapped too since they are unwilling to slap those who are bringing the guns here. Keep playing games Mr. policeman, chickens do come home to roost.

    These fools need to be made examples of. That just is not happening,so others aren’t deterred because they know that the court system is a joke and have no need to fear going before the court.Here you have a drug dealer with more ammunition than the Police ,and whom without doubt would kill if he has to in order to protect his stash . The only consolation here is that he was caught before he had the opportunity to kill if he hasn’t already.
