CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Dear Paul B,

I just read (in another publication) about two kids from Stevenson that were singled out for selling a little pot. There has to be 200 kids or more that are dealing drugs, and much worse than just pot. Heck, half my friends (I am 47) still get high. Isn’t this just sad, that these two “children” have to take all the heat for the other 198 kids who concealed the truth? For all the police work and this surprise search, I am baffled by their low count. Stevenson has major drug problems, and this bust of TWO will not make it go away. The teachers need to monitor these kids more instead of coffee clutching and pretending that it isn’t their problem.. They make plenty of dough for working six months a year, and leaving at 3 pm.

Concerned Parent


Dear CP,

You are not concerned whatsoever? I am willing to bet that you are either one of the busted kids, or you still get high, so why pick on these kids? I don’t care about “your highness” or your friends craving for weed. It is against the law, and these are “children” as you stated. I too am disappointed that only two were “caught in the act,” but this loud and relevant police action definitely got everyone’s attention, even yours. Why do you believe that teens drug use is the teachers responsibility? I thought the teachers were there to teach? I remember one parent recently complaining to the CPS administration that teachers had no right to punish or counsel children about drug use. It is my belief that you send your kids to school with a solid breakfast, well rested, attentive, and ready to learn. If a parent can’t control one child, how can a teacher be expected to handle hundreds? Glad you could put your joint down to read about the Big Bust. Say hello to Cheech and Chong for me, and btw, please try to be a positive role model for your kids, if it’s not too late.
