@ picas. Doesnt matter whether law enforcement is "doing what they get paid for." Even people who do their job deserve an atta boy or a Thank You every once in awhile. Guaranteed that if they were not doing their job, you and folks like you would be criticizing them for that. Thank God they are doing their job.

@....Big Sigh. You just don't get it. This what they are paid to do. They are paid to go after the bad guys. junkies are dime a dozen here in Blythe. It's so bad that if they wanted they could fill the jail in half a day and after that they would have release the rest on a citation.

These people know who everyone is, a junkie or a dealer. They have names and affiliations on almost everyone here in town.

EL PICA BUYAS do you EVER say anything positive? I don't know who you are, but you are the most negative person, who must not be employed for the amount of time you spend leaving feedback on almost EVERY article. *sigh*

Good job guys, anyone with half a brain realizes the law protects these idiots, and therefore doesn't make it easy for you to get them off our streets. The frustrating part is while you are still working on the paperwork, hoping the DA will file, the dirt bags are set free.

Thanks for doing your part. I doubt California will EVER do theirs.

So now they want an atta-boy with fries for doing what they get paid for. Hey this is just throwing the dog a bone to keep him quiet, or keeping the natives happy.

Out of these 16 people all were users an abusers and only one that they charged for dealing. Heck you can walk down town and pick the users.
