    It's a real comfort to know that the authorities are putting efforts to do their job. Now we're talking about one more meth lab down, another danger stopped. Statistics say that meth is a devastating drug with serious effects on entire communities. A close friend got caught in this drug hell but now he found hope again in a drug rehab Missouri, he's a lucky guy, things could have been a lot worse.

    Agreed, great work po po's but why are these deadbeats out of jail and why was bail even an option? Why do police do their job and the Harford County prosecutors and judges fail.
