What would I do? Make those kids pay. They got themselves into the mess.. be a grown-up and get out on your own.. then a one way ticket to an out of state rehab.

IDK what one does with kiddo that keeps getting in trouble beyond what parents can bail out. How one says sorry, if they kill you I can't do anything about it.



Yeah, because drug dealers/gang-bangers always keep their word, right? Give me a break! So what would you do if you handed them the money, and they still shot one of your loved ones in front of you, right after telling you, "let this be a lesson," or that it's "just business?"



This is real life. Not a sitcom.

Fortunately, I've yet to run into a dealer with a violent streak like that... most aren't looking to add aggravated assault or murder to their rap sheet. They are low level dealers looking for cash no more no less... attention is not what they want. Certainly no one I consider an acquaintance or friend would do something like that...

One thing doesn't make sense though... I don't know anyone stupid enough to deal on credit. Your primary clientele are addicts for crying out loud. Even their source deals only in cash.

If someone I cared for ended up in this situation (doubt it..), I'd pay them off and get them to rehab.

Let's play this logic out...

You pay them.. and maybe they leave them alone.

Or

You don't pay them and they definitely won't leave them alone.

Seriously... I think someone else needs to step away from the TV. No one says "let this be a lesson... just business"... no one..

This wouldn't be a case for self defense.
