  1. Why does the crack shack need to be associated with southern Ontario gangs for the police to put a stop to it?
    You can literally sit down the block on Egan and watch all the traffic, day in day out.
    Yet that scum bag is ALLOWED to slang…. as long as he gives information of course.
    You go 3 blocks over on Cumberland…same thing. Must be allowed to sell also.
    You go over to Picton, take your pick, it wonโ€™t take you long to see whoโ€™s who over there either.
    TBPS we appreciate that your locking up the southern trash, but please start cracking down on the well established trap houses ran by our residents.

  2. Going to have to flush the toilet several times to get these turds on their way. Hopefully the judge(s) have the courage and wherewithal to do their jobs properly.

    With all of this incessant gang related drug dealing and violence being in the forefront of the news, one would think the judges would get the message and start laying down some harsh punishment?

  3. Why? Southern Ontario dudes r the ones bringing in the baddest drugs and a lot of them .
    fentanyl ? Thatโ€™s killing
    ppl .
    Locals r doing bad also but iโ€™m just saying .
    Cops will get em all .
    Canโ€™t wait for thunderbay to get cleaned out may take long but hey .
    Good job TBPS
