  1. I understand completly that the law enforcement is trying to send a message to the dealers. But what about the buyers in this case? The buyer(S) get off for testimony. Laura did not have any children of her own but she “baby sat” her roomate’s kids cinstantly. The police SHOULD step in remove the children from the mother. The mother is a user/scam artist too. But no They just wantto go after the dealer… forget about the inosent children involved. Laura is dead…. “friends” are stll partying away. Hopefully the police will know where to look next.
