Let's just call these human traffickers what they really are...slave holders, and they don't seem to see anything wrong with that.

These people don't want to kick the drugs, if they did, they would, spending more money to "cure" stupid isn't going to work, if they are going to build something, they should build (Habitat for Humanity) homes for families who can't afford to buy or rent a decent home for their kids, but make sure they are drug tested and background first, no druggies, criminals or con artists.

I just hope that in place of these empty lots that are going to be created by this get turned into something positive, like community outreach centers to help the homeless, to get mental health for those who desperately need it due to the drug abuse and maybe some clinics of some sort to try and help these individuals kick these drug habbits. Addiction is no joke, so I say instead of getting rid of these drug houses etc, they work to help these folks who are down and out get clean.. Because if no effort as such is made they will just find new holes to crawl into and start this problem all over again... And how does that help our community? How does that help the kids that have to live around such places? It won't keep them any safer nor help the poor souls who are stuck in that terrible lifestyle. Dont move the problem, fix it so we won't have to continue this cycle. Just the thoughts of.someone who's seen and dealt with this problem first-hand...
