    To the idiot who posted the first comment, you don’t think having 2 lbs meth doesn’t constitute you as a criminal? I want to hear you make that same ridiculous comment when your kid is a strung out junkie.

    what the fuck!? i very sick person would think murderers, rapists, and pedophiles are not worse than a drug dealer. I'm not saying drug dealers are not bad too, but come on, those other three are ridiculously worse!

    Ciminals are criminals! Period! Drugs is what's wrong with our country! And most pedophiles, rapists, and murderers use them! It's a shame to see Joey in this predicament again, but he knew what he was doing was wrong and still continued doing it. He will probably never change. He will more than likely get life. So be it.
