    of course drug trafficking in their community is prohibited,but in my community danvers the major drug dealer here is allowed to do as he pleases..including drinking and driving..but i guess when they catch one they like to publicize it as if to prove they're actually working or doing their job,meanwhile the dealers here are operating knowing they have immunity as long as they keep it in this community.

      Eric, the "major drug dealer" has probably been reported to the police, right? If not, what are you doing about it? FYI, investigations of this nature take time. There are only so many resources available and the police can't go arresting people on hearsay.
