Everyone is entitiled to there own opinion..But we all know how that goes..
Rich, you aksed whose fault is it? Not sure we (society) will ever have a firm answer to that question other than "free will" (choice).

What Sal, Willy and Gus did was wrong because it was against the law, but life when convicted child molesters get less than 5 years... or demoted from cardinal to bishop... please. I knew the above mentioned very well and those who want to cast stones on this site are in the wrong sport... Offshore Racing... The sport that drugs built... It is what it is... get over it.
MidOcean, Those who take drugs when they are in active addiction typically cannot stop once they start, as far as a "willing participants", the choice is not as "free will" as you imply. Casual and recreational drug users, yes they are willing participants, not doubt there. Hard core drug addicts are participants, but the grip of addiction has them bottled up. Fact not fiction.
I read the casting of stones Biblical reference, and I certainly do not live in a glass house, but, what the hell, if you deal drugs, then you are wrecking lives...this is a not a complex concept to grasp.

When was the last time a gram of cocaine held a gun to somebody's head and said "snort me or die mutherphucker" ?
please read the fine print
If you had a teenager that was using drugs would you still think these guys are OK, misunderstood ?
The more you know about addiction the clearer the picture will be. I do understand and appreciate your point, it does make sense.
So I really do not care if he was a good guy away from the business, that is irrelevant; and a great offshore boat racer, if you are dealing illegal drugs/distribution, you are not making the world a better place.
So when they come a knocking for ya (criminals), it is time to take your medicine (incarcertion). I'd rather see a defendant do time, than rat out his associates, but that is another thread, and I have my reasons for that position. So I will give my due respect to Sal Maglutta for not ratting/snitching. I remember him racing, and yes he was good.

I agree, its your own free will to do what you want, theres no privacy left in America. Always someone watching.. Regardless of whoever gets caught selling drugs there will be another dealer lined up.. They will never stop the flow of drugs just lock up people for selling and using drugs..People do get killed but they put themselves in harms way or tried to get in other peoples business or didnt do honest business.
