And here I thought Public FELLATIO was Illegal!?

But if the 'major' drug bust story and subsequent editorial in the
Alexander City Outlook
today is any indication, then I guess I am wrong because it is the largest and most vulgar display of public dick sucking I have ever seen in my life...Check this out...


Drug sting nets 20 arrests

By Brittany Woodby

Investigators with the Tallapoosa County Narcotics Task Force, along with other area law enforcement agencies, arrested 20 people Thursday morning on drug-related charges.

Task force investigator Jay Turner said the raid, which officials called "Operation Chokehold," followed two-and-a-half months of investigation.

"We like to do things at the first of the month," Turner said. "That's usually when there's more money out there and people have a larger amount of drugs."

Officers initiated the operation around 6:30 a.m. with two search warrants at Alexander City residences. David Thomas, aka "Big D", 49, of Alexander City was arrested at his residence on F Street on two outstanding warrants for distribution of a controlled substance (crack) and charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance (crack). Investigators confiscated 1 gram of what was believed to be crack cocaine, $6,100 in cash and three vehicles.

The second search warrant was executed at a home on Old Kellyton Road, which resulted in the arrest of four others. Sherry Woodall, 22, of Alexander City was charged with possession of a controlled substance (crack), possession of a controlled substance (Lortab) and arrested on two warrants of distribution of a controlled substance (crack).

Ricky Lee Edwards, 45, of Alexander City was arrested on two warrants of distribution of a controlled substance (crack).


Benjamin Russell, 49, of Alexander City and Jacqueline Westbrook, 31, of Alexander City were both arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia.

Items seized at the residence included what was believed to be 3 grams of crack cocaine, Lortab tablets, $1,794 in cash and one vehicle.

Investigators confiscated almost 1 pound of marijuana packaged for distribution and approximately 2 grams of cocaine and paraphernalia after the arrested suspect consented to search of his Myrtle Street residence. Darryll Young, 31, of Alexander City was charged with possession of marijuana in the first degree and possession of a controlled substance. Young was also served with warrants for three counts of distribution of a controlled substance.

Several other Alexander City residents were arrested on outstanding warrants in unrelated incidences, including Edward Drake, 27, was arrested on two warrants of distribution of a controlled substance.

€ Johnrecius Thomas, aka "Woo Woo," 31, was arrested on four warrants of distribution of a controlled substance.

€ Scotty Tyrone Marbury, 35, was arrested on two warrants of distribution of a controlled substance.

€ Ethan Russell, 29, was arrested on two warrants of distribution of a controlled substance.

€ Jerry Finney, 37, was arrested on one warrant of distribution of a controlled substance.

€ Ira Hicks, 39, was arrested on two warrants of distribution of a controlled substance.

€ John Lewis, aka "Pito," 50, was arrested on one warrant of distribution of a controlled substance.

Jackson's Gap resident, Charles Crayton, 41, was arrested on three warrants of distribution of a controlled substance.

Dadeville resident Flando Cox aka "Man," 27, was arrested on two warrants of distribution of a controlled substance and charged with possession of a controlled substance (crack) and possession of marijuana in the first degree.

Arrested in Tallassee were Ernest Jackson, aka "Crow," 57, on one warrant of distribution of a controlled substance and one warrant of criminal conspiracy to commit a controlled substance crime.

€ Phyllis Cunningham, 46, arrested on two warrants of distribution of a controlled substance and one warrant of failure to appear child support.

€ Felix Kennebrew, 50, arrested on two warrants of distribution of a controlled substance.

€ Thomas James Sanders, 47, was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and failure to appear possession of drug paraphernalia.

€ Bernard Eddings, 38, was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Turner said all offenders were transported to the Tallapoosa County Jail.

So, our lovely para-military drug task force arrested a few small time crack smokers, robbed some citizens of their money and automobiles, and got a few grams of crack, weed and couple Loratab off the streets....and a blow job from the newspaper to boot! Oh my, I feel so much safer already. And why do I get the sneaking suspicion that the majority of the accused are African-American? I know a lot of white people who smoke crack....but they never seem to make it in the paper. And....can Tallapoosa County with a population of just over 15,000 support 20 crack dealers? And that is just 20 this week alone.

This is starting to look a little bit like Tulia, Texas.

Anyone with even one brain cell knows the drug war is an abject failure. Arresting 20 people who amount to small time users doesn't do a damn thing about big time dealers. It's funny how the task force always gets the small fish isn't it? Why don't they go after the big fish?

Well, because if they lock up the big fish who have money and drugs then there won't be any small, poor fish, who are usually unable to defend themselves to round up, drag through court and cram into jail thereby ending the justification for the existance of the Tallapoosa County Narcotics Task Force. And then there won't be any public dick-sucking editorials like this one in today's Editorial Section.


Sting strikes big blow on drug scene

It took the Tallapoosa County Narcotics Task Force more than two months to put the pieces together.

When it did, it certainly netted one of the largest drug stings in more than a year. It may not have been the hundreds of pounds of marijuana it confiscated almost six months ago, but the number of people arrested and charged on drug-related charges throughout the county was something to take notice.

Drugs continue to be a problem in Tallapoosa County, just as it is in the 66 other counties in the state.

There is no doubt our law enforcement agencies are striking a big blow to the drug suppliers and pushers in this county.

We applaud the work of our local law enforcement agencies in trying to rid our county of drugs.

We know they won't be able to erase all the drugs from our county, but a sting like the one on Thursday certainly is a great way to make inroads.


I wonder if the author of this column spit afterwards or if maybe he is a swallower? Could he really enjoy protein shakes that much? Dental work is cheaper and far less degrading than getting on your knees for the Task Force.

I think I'll go and brush my teeth now.

And maybe next time Jay Turner and the author of this editorial might consider just getting a room and save the public from these disgusting displays of affection. After all, this is suppossed to be a family newspaper and our children shouldn't have to bare witness to this sort of indecency.

As if the drug task force actually considers busting a few obviously small time drug abusers "strikes big blow on drug scene."


Stop locking up drug users, it helps NO ONE!!! The incarceration of drug users only amounts to more and more taxpayers dollars being put to no good. Why not cut the so called "War on Drugs" and focus on some of the actual major problems in the drug game? I'm not working the numbers here but I know that billions could be saved if instead of incarcerating drug users, we sent them to an accredited rehabilitation program where they could get the help they need.

Drug users realize the risk of being caught with their supply, don't you think? Taking away a huge part of someones life because they have a drug problem seems counterproductive wouldn't you say?




I could babble on for hours about the infinite reasons why our country does NOT know how to go about dealing with this epidemic, so I am going to cut myself short here... but I would like to end on this note:

Way to go Tallapoosa County... Nothing like showboating a huge bust like this one? I wonder what the 2 and a half MONTHS of undercover work consisted of..... following a crackhead around figuring out his accomplices? These people weren't drug dealers, they were abusers of a highly addictive drug, and probably just needed someone to step in and give them the chance to change their lives around. Congratulations, now they can live in a concrete box for a few decades to think about what they've done.

Nursery School based local justice is all I have to say. Some of us need to grow up.

more than likely,theundercover cops tricked the users into going and getting them some crack. that way they could get them for distribution.

the way i see it is it take big money, i mean millions of dollars sometimes to buy and bring in these drugs to the US. who has that kind of money and power to get it done? rich folks and powerful folks. the drug task force won't go after them because they are afriad of them or might even know them. when is the last time you heard of a important person being busted for drugs?

Drug task force is made up of police officers from Tallapoosa county; no federal money, no local money. Do not focus on drug crimes outside the county. These arrest were of dealers, not users. Belittle a group that is at least trying to better an area; rehab is a failure. Prison doesn't work, what is the answer besides whinning and complaining. It appears to be a damn if you do or a damn if you don't for them. Guys trying to do there job and raise there family in a half way decent place. If you don't want drug enforcement, move to Birmingham.
