        I agree with you Robert, unfortunately the story being discussed here is about illegal Dominican immigrants. It’s a shame that people like yourself have to read negetive things about Dominicans. Hopefully most of the readers of this blog know the difference between hard working Dominican Americans and the drug dealers with multiple aliases.

    The trouble with deportations is the just AKA or get dual citizenship and re-enter. Charge them all with accessory to murder punishable by death.

    The drug DEALERS need to be arrested and help the users! Throwing them in jail is just a cycle for them they need to give hard time to the people that are selling…

    But the white drug dealers pushing heroine up here in NH are ok though, can’t it be a win for law enforcement without it being a war on races? Yes I want them deported too but I’m not petty enough to make it about EBT cards because the educated know the majority of EBT recipients are Caucasian

      I don’t know who is selling drugs in NH. All I know is what is going on in the city that I grew up in, and yes! It is being sold by Domiinicans that don’t care about the lives they affect, they only care about the fast money they can make and send back home so that they can live very, very well when they go back. This is not about Dominican Americans, it’s about illegal immigrant drug dealers. Come live here and tell me I’m wrong??

    More Caucasians is the only reason why there’s more using EBT.

      and not all addicts are disgusting. Once you say ignorant shit like that, no one really cares what you have to say, we all see what your about. Take that nonsense somewhere else, your part of the problem not the solution.

    They should now have an island like escape from NY movie and just leave them all there. Sad how drugs are getting worse. no prisons just that be a prison so who ever is dealing etc. can just be dropped off and all go
    at themselves.

    Our world will continue to be this way because people focus on things they shouldn’t or blaming races. Wake up, see the big picture here. I’m happy they caught these people because of what they’re doing, not the race or EBT cards since they didn’t even mention that. Judge people individually by their actions if you must, don’t blame a whole race. Job well done to yhe police! Btw: I’m Dominican and I lost a brother to drugs!

      HAHAHA, do you know geography? What would a wall do to stop Dominicans from coming here illegally? Do you think they came through the Mexico/USA southern border? LOL. Try again.

    Actually this country belonged to the Natives that were here so maybe you should take white flight and go back to your country. Racist like you are what is ruining this country.

    People forget they didn’t want the polish here because their IQ’s were to low and the Irish were the first niggers while african’s were sold as slaves.
