OK this is just too funny gotta give it up to the cops who came up with this. Apparently it has resulted in alot of arrests.

You know drug dealers are going to be anonymously turning each other in left and right.. Or how about the scorned xgirlfriends?



When the sheriff in Franklin County, Ky., posted a flier on Facebook asking local drug dealers to snitch on their competition, the response was more than a little incredulous.

That is, until a tip sent to a phone number on the flier led to an investigation that helped the sheriff arrest a local drug dealer. The authorities recovered crack coc aine, coc aine, four pounds of marijuana and four firearms, the sheriff, Pat Melton, said on Thursday.

That is kinda funny.

Hope they go easy on any medical or personal use marijuana growers though.

Round here dealers just break the competitions legs

They are called enforcers and much more scary than the police.

I would bet that people will die over this. A sheriff program that tempts someone to do this for the desire of having their competition removed from the scene is going to end in many deaths, maybe even the death of law enforcement officers. Never volunteer any information to cops, because they don't care about anyone except to help themselves.

Yea, I'll say the same thing here as on FB..


This is little more than lazy pig ideology at work. Many innocents will be harmed by it. It is no different than the stupid "swatting" craze or CPS bombing the neighbors you don't like.

Just another intimidation tool, by tools, for tools.

Sadly this is so true, Cops are the enemy to every citizen. Sorry "good" cops start policing your own and then maybe we can talk.

Calm your hairy bosoms, it looks like a lighthearted joke by the police department.

Posting it on Facebook is meant to promote it, not joke about it. So the police officers involved threw it out there, and now the New York Times has picked it up and bullhorned it to the world. As was said earlier in the thread, people are going to be "turning in" lots of non-drug dealers, either punking people or getting back at those who've done them a perceived wrong. This won't end well.

If they want to ratchet it up pay them $2000 if their tip leads to a conviction. Everyone will turn each other in, and the $2000 per will mostly go back to law enforcement when it's confiscated as drug money.

Wow, everyone cool down a bit...It ALWAYS was a way to put out competition...what do think scums selling drugs to children do when they get caught??? They MOSTLY act like what they are and RAT about their ''friends'' to get out/have a lesser sanction. I Wonder why so many people here think so highly of scumbags? Go figure.

No news here...sorry

Seems to me that ratting out your competition is a bad career move for someone who trades on their street cred.

I thought the same but for more than 15 years I worked as a cop and by far MOST of the intel comes from rivals. Always. It's a dirty business and there is no 'rules' nor 'honor code'. Money is the game, the rest is accessory.
