I agree 100%. JCPD and Cole County Law Enforcement need to do a major sweep. Start in the highschoools first. Teenagers will talk and they'll get the leads. Once they do a couple dozen busts around town, it will get too hot for the dealers and they'll leave or end up in jail. This worked in Cedar Rapids. Took about one summer of Law enforcement doing daily busts, cracking down on dealers and throwing the riff raff in the pokey. It dried up the drug trafficing for quite a while (even though some came back) BUT not near as bad! Dealers and the the druggies know Cedar Rapids authorities do not mess around. Courts impose the max too.
I hope she doesn't bail out. She might try and run. Someone said 2 more boys came forward? Looks like they could be lining up. How sick!
This lady should be put away for a long time! Even though drugs seem to be a way of life for many teens these days, here we have a mother with two small children allowing such activity in the home. What kind of impression and mental anquish has she put her children through? This lady seemed to never grow up. Looks like she lived in a fantasy world and thought she'd never get caught. I can't believe she didn't realize teens talk not only to their peirs but some (yes) to their parents. Her fb page (info and interests) not only shows a very troubled woman but one who's whole life centered around teens and the stuff (movies, activities, books, etc) that teens in this type of drug/hippie culture are attracted to. As stated earlier on here, her friends included many many teens. I'm sure the authorities will be contacting a lot of the boys whose pictures are listed, if they haven't already. This could turn out to be quite a few more. I'm glad she finally got caught because Lord knows how long shes been doing this or how long it would of continued. I can only pray that the damaged she imposed on her children can be healed and they will be able to overcome this. The teenage boys should also get some professional help (mental and drug), this has to be hard on them and their families. I can only imagine what their going through, threats from her friends and other druggies for doing what was right, for finally putting an end to her sick way of life.The authorities really need dwell deeply into this case and follow all leads to help curtail the drug problem here in JC. Sounds like she was providing a lot of other drugs besides pot.
