  1. Its ashame that I went to school with two of those guys and see them turn out the way they are. Praying that those boys will find God to help them with their addiction. I’m glad they are off the streets though…great job officers.

        • @Anonymous: And maybe you should muster up enough courage to use your own name or a reasonable facsimile thereof. And you should learn how to spell and make complete sentences on at least a 2nd grade level. People are getting fed up with crime in general and dope is a real problem around here. Do you have any proof whatsoever that these turds were “set up?” By who? On whose authority? Why??? Bet you don’t respond back but I’m willing to be surprised today.

  2. Sad to see this happen especially to my childs father and two of my friends but just as well as I always have said the “street life” ends one of two ways dead or prison….there isn’t anything promised in that lifestyle! Now there is no need to down these guys or talk crap about them…anyone with any sense would pray for these guys! They are still human and do make mistakes! If God still loves them then so should we! The drugs are just as much of a problem as any other crime…I LOVE YOU GUYS AND WILL FOREVER KEEP YOU THREE IN MY PRAYERS!

  3. Hate to burst your bubble but how can you feel sorry for Destric Boyd aka Dex? I grew up with him and I know for a fact he has already been to prison once for firing a gun at a carnival filled with children and families.He has been busted for drugs numerous times. And last year he shot a young man in the side then went back to his home and shot himself so he could claim self defense. Just a few months back he was arrested in Longview for being in possesion of a gun at a club.And keep in mind he is currently on parole. He has been keeping himself out of prison only because he has been snitching on all the other drug dealers and low life’s around town. So no I don’t feel sorry for him but I do feel sorry for his children, his 3 girlfriends, and his boyfriend. As far as Raymond Wallace goes I don’t understand how he ended up like this. He was one of the most intelligent guys in school but ended up dropping out senior year. My heart goes out to his wife and children. I can’t speak on the other young man involved because I don’t know him personally.

  4. @I.P. Freely you are hilarious! I don’t know about the other 2 guys but Destric has been loving on “Bubba” for a few years now! And before the rest of ya’ll start saying it’s not funny and I shouldn’t be laughing. It’s funny to me because I don’t feel sorry for repeat offenders. If it was his first time yes I might have some sympathy for him. But after you’ve been arrested like 5 or 6 times then orange must be your favorite color!

  5. Most everyone around are fed up with dopers and suppliers. Send em all to a deserted island with all the dope they want and let em kill themselves. No patience with dopers or anyone that tolerates dopers!
