    So this guy has Ketamine in his possesion and then goes back on the street. Wasn't it just last week that the RNC put out a public notice about women protecting themselves after all the sexual assualts in the city?? Ketamine is the #1 drug used to date rape these days. So yes women- protect yourselves by all means as the RNC just put a man selling date rape drugs back on the streets!! Good job!

    Funny how they all try to hide their face from the cameras on the way to court. The money just doesn't seem worth the trouble after you get caught, does it? Their mother must be so proud.

    GOOD-STUFF! GREAT WORK! The only trouble now is : when this gets to our great court system. The RNC catch them, arrest them, & the courts & lawyers put them back to work ASAP.

    Cheers to the RNC for making a drug bust that takes really harmful drugs off the street for a change instead of just pot.
