    12 years ago I used to travel 95 during the wee morning hours on business.  A brief stop at the B. King would produce characters who appear to be related to this dude.  They would invariably be ordering vast amounts of burgers (10 or so), and other food and drink to complement it.  I would always mention to my partner as we drove away “Where are the police?”  These guys stick out like a sore thumb.  They aren’t up here sightseeing or visiting Grandma…WTF?  Know it’s not correct to “profile”, but if I was the LAW, I would find a way to check them out because they always drove away in a smelly, belching old Caddy with N.Y. plates and a rear taillight out….Go Maine Law!!!!! Get ’em…….

      I used to travel 95 quite frequently between New York and Florida. I noticed frequently what appeared to me to be totally out of place, early model luxury cars with New York, New Jersey, or Florida plates zooming up or down–often times driving in tandem–and often early in the morning or late at night. Once about 8 years ago, I was on my way back north at about 5:30 in the morning when I spotted this early 90’s Infinity with New York plates zooming north toward North Carolina. I didn’t think much of it until about 45 minutes later when I saw the car again stopped by the police about 100 yards north of the state line. This time, the driver (whom I assumed to be Hispanic) was sitting on the side of the highway in handcuffs, and the contents of his trunk were being examined by the trooper. Even to the average motorist, it’s pretty obvious.

    National gangs are here, in rural Maine.  And why not?  There are maybe  2 or 3  cops on duty at night, in the whole  Somerset County and 56,000 residents.

      WATERVILLE,MAINE — Police this week said one of the men arrested on College Avenue on Jan. 21 is a high-ranking member of the Crips street gang in New York City and is near the top of the Queens County, N.Y., most-wanted list.His presence in central Maine matches a profile of city gangs expanding to rural areas. Authorities in New York City paint a grim picture of gang expansion from the inner city into rural communities.

      And yet we have Romney supporters who’ll yell and scream about the lack of law enforcement officers at the same time they are prepared to vote for a party that wants to cut down the ranks of police officers and firemen.
      You can’t have it both ways, folks.

  • Glad to see that the Madison Jail is embracing diversity.

    US DEA , MDEA , ATF  need to put SKOWHEGAN on their radar screen NOW
    While there is still a chance to salvage this area. 

  • NY is a lib Dem state, and city for that matter, as is ME. So you reap what you sow.

    Recently we hav been reading in the paper  a lot of competent doctors   are being threatened by the Maine State License board to have  license taken away  for perscribing narcotics.  The problem is not with the doctors  , the problem is  we are seeing more and more out of state druggies  coming into this state.   Maybe we need to increase the task force,  this problem is going to get worse.

    It’s time to toughen our drug laws. They come here becasue there is a market and they get a slap on the hand if they get caught.  Make out laws the toughest in the North East and you will see much less of this.  We call drug dealers stupid and some are but alot of the bigger dealers not dumb. They do a risk/rewark assessment and grow their bussiness according to to the findings.  Increase the risk to an unacceptable level and they will go else where .
