Like I said, its a small town and I have heard plenty about this family. If you know them you are probably a scumbag too.

I must be a scumbag also since I know this family too! I love how you pass judgement. I don't know where you live - what part of town, but friends/acquaintances that know them are in shock & being VERY SUPPORTIVE. You seem to sit on your high horse, sit behind your computer & type things you have no clue about. Kieran hit the nail on the head. Don't believe everything you read. It's sad you are so impressionable that you believe an article in the Patch.

I have seen this technique used by law enforcement many times over the years. They charge the parents as well as the majority age children, even though the parents were not dealing themselves. This makes it easier for the police to get the kids to cop a plea in exchange for "dropping the charges" against the parents.
