All you have to do is look at some of the arrests in this week’s Law & Order pages to realize heroin is a real problem. Once relegated to  really addicted, lower class individuals, heroin has become the middle class drug of choice.

In a week long news feature on the NBC Nightly News, one middle class woman explained how she became addicted. She was a prescription pill junkie, but found it much cheaper and easier to find heroin.

In Wayne County last week, Bobbie M. Calderwood (see page C-1) was operating an unregistered vehicle on Lummisville Road in the Town of Huron when State Trooper Tom Connor pulled her over. She was subsequently arrested for the Unregistered Motor Vehicle, Uninsured, Unlicensed, Switched Plates, Aggravated unlicensed Operation in the 3rd Degree, and oh, yes, …Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 7th Degree-heroin.

Calderwood’s case is only one of many such reports over the last several months. By the way, she was arraigned on all those lovely charges and simply released. That would not happen in Ontario County!

Even with the bargain prices at which heroin is selling, people still have the need to steal and commit a wide variety of crimes to support their daily habit.

Canandaigua Police (See page C-4) arrested Edwin Vazquez last week. He is accused of selling 19 bags of heroin on South Main Street in Canandaigua. When arrested he possessed more heroin and cash.

Bottom line here, folks – the drug trade has once again changed and not for the better. Heroin is even more addictive and now, easier than ever to obtain.

Moving on…

Gee, what a surprise to learn James (Jamie) Clark was arrested once again. For decades Clark has accumulated one of the longest criminal records in Wayne County. Drug possession in January, Grand Larceny for stealing his parents’ credit cards in February. He recently was arrested while in jail for Misuse of Food Stamps. On a scale of usefulness to society, Clark is a negative. Not only does he commit just about every crime in the book, but we pay out welfare to this useless, terminally unemployed piece of shit.

Many in Clark’s family have also followed his path in crime. This past week, Faith White (See page C-1) was arrested for Misuse of Food Stamps. Seems Jamie gave her use of his food stamp (SNAP) card while he was in jail so the benefit would not go to waste.

Oh, gee, I’m sorry, I guess the liberal, more understanding side of me has all but disappeared.
