    OK This is the way this thing is going to play out, Indictment returned in North Texas herion ring. There are 10 people in jail for doing herion and selling but! this is what going to happen with those people. There will be very little jail time no prison time why? because some smart lawer will bring forth something the Police Officers didn’t do while searching their home or property. He will say and I quote, these are good o’boys let them go home to their families. I know they are White boys they will go home and get their Methamphetamine lab going they will never be punished.
