Excellent!

Keep up the great work!  
 
Apparently, they did a drug lockdown at Vincent Massey yesterday with drug dogs. Some people got caught, with at least one student getting an early end to his tenure in high school. All in all, great news on the drug front this week.

Operation Brou Ha Ha

GREAT news and a big yaHOO to law enforcement!  
 
I'm curious now as usual.  
 
If you knew someone was doing something illegal, would you report them?  
 
What if it was just hearsay but the stories were told in detail from a reliable source? Would you report it then?  
 
Would you need to witness the illegal activities and would you need proof in order to report the illegal activities?  
 
When do we stop just listening to the stories and take them seriously and report it?  
 
When does it become our responsibility to report something we HEARD?

Sadly

I know kids who got caught smoking pot on Crocus property and only got a weeks suspension. Laws need to be stricter..

Marni.....

well, first offense will only get 1 week suspension likely. One I know of from Massey is probably gonna get expelled because this is at least his 2nd strike. He broke an agreement where he committed to obeying the rules (after he got nailed for drugs once before).

Neelin Locked Down

My daughter had a good laugh though. A fair haired girl was heard to say, "They should have given us a warning before locking us in the classrooms!"  
 
My daughter will not even carry Tylenol to school for her occasional headaches because she does not want to risk even a suspicion of drugs on her record. But this may be because she has plans and drugs are not part of her future (thanks to the Air Cadets).

Good Job BPS!

It's good to see some people finally having to face consequences for their actions. The drug side of Brandon is an ugly one, and destroys far too many lives.  
And Hackeda, in response to your questions - I think it's a societal responsibility to report anything we suspect/hear with regard to drug use/trafficking/dealing in our city. After all, it may not be enough evidence for police to press charges but it may give them another lead... that's just my opinion on the matter though. I think the amount of drugs present in Brandon is disgusting. There are some good people in this world whose lives are getting destroyed because of them... and today, for a few moments, there was a glimmer of hope for our childrens' futures...  
 
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK BPS!

I am glad BPS tossed a net and dragged in the big fish. Any amount of drugs off the street is always positive.

Strange

I find it both a little strange and a lot sad that all of the arrested so far are under 30. I would have thought there were some older adults involved in the drug trade here in Brandon and it's quite sad that these young people are screwing up this badly already.

Maybe the older one's are just a little too wise to get caught. The older ones probably enabled these younger ones to get caught up in this. Hopefully, their day will come.

Great Job

Too bad the actual penalties are very, very light. Cocaine trafficking in the US could get you 10+ years in the clink. Here they get probation and a fine. A few months in the clink is the most anyone could get. The police do their job but maybe some judges are involved in this drug trade as well otherwise they would all stay in jail for awhile.

That they only found one or so. When I went to massey it was crawling absouloutly CRAWLING with pot and other stuff. Everyone was selling, everyone was smokin it! We smoked it beside the school..or behind the church, easily in view.. I mean the teachers could see us out the classroom windows. O good old smokers Tree. I remember all the different cliques being out at that tree, we all had one thing in common we were all smoking our lunch hour joint. I'm SO shocked thats all the found.. WOW...

Those are not the big fish at all. All they really got was small time street peddlers. Wheres the big guys that are supplying those young kids? Hopefully they can scare some of them into giving up the real culprits.  
Still good to see though!

Ilostmymind...

Did you go to Massey in the 60's??? 'cause I graduated in '01 from there when weed was the drug of choice for most and you'd have a couple people tops smoking up at the tree. You make it sound like lockers were stuffed with weed!!

Ya know...

Maybe I just hung with a more pot headisssh group then you... You probably didn't know all the dealers I knew.. Because when you were graduating I was in grade 9 or 10... and in that grade there was a massive group of dealers and if my memorie serves me well we were all smoking pot all the time. I dunno how you didn't notice... That's weird really bacon really. I also remember the police coming back then, but people found out and took off. All I know Is there was alot of pot, mush, x being dealt around there left and right.. bathrooms, trees, hallways...

I graduated in the 1990's and there wasn't that much for drugs around.

Thread maybe?  
 
And no I sure wouldn't report them unless it was child abuse or somthing extreme.

Massey

I also graduated in the 90's and don't recall much dope. I am sure there was the odd dope head but don't remember people dealing out of locker's or pulling out the zig zag's at the smoking tree! Maybe I was sheltered and focused on my education. I do recall a time or two where a select few would get caught with a small amount, less then a gram, but that's at all the schools and has been and will probably continue. I didn't dabble as my old man would have beat me silly if I got caught smoking the reefer. But again that was back in the good old days now we have "keep it up little Jonny and Mommy will put you on a time out!" What I don't agree with is the labeling of Massey as a dope haven, but I guess we are all entitled to our own opinion.

Those little guppies get it from the big fish and aren't afraid to talk if it might benefit them. It's quite simple really

you'd be surprised at what those "little guppies" will do to protect those "big fish". Chances are very good that the guppies did not purchase their supplies from the "really big fish".

all the bps did

is put more cash in the pockets of the rest of the coke dealers. and to all of you talking about the weed going through the high schools, it really has nothing to do with anything. there will always be weed in the schools and it will never be directly supplied by any of the citys suppliers.
