Going after the heroin dealers

Yesterday we told you about plans here in Delaware County to turn up the heat on heroin dealers.

Today we have the details.

State Rep. Jamie Santora, R-163, was accompanied by District Attorney Jack Whelan and a phalanx of Delco police chiefs as he announced legislation that would call for mandatory minimum sentences for those convicted in heroin sales.

Santora, as well as Upper Darby top cop Mike Chitwood, should know. Upper Darby has been ravaged by the heroin epidemic. And Chitwood has made it clear he believes the courts have to take a tougher stance on those peddling the heroin.

As usual, Chitwood was not at a loss for words.

You can get all the details here.

The problem here is that EVERYONE KNOWS that ground zero for Heroin distribution is Indiana Ave between 4th and 5th in North Philly, yet as i type this there are deals going on in the open as they have been for the last 3 + decades. Cut off the head and the body will die but it seams no one wants to do that. Why?
