More than one police officers plead responsible in Cocaine Ring that offered tablets to Fellow officials—NO jail

 Not one, not two, not four, but five sheriff’s officers in New Jersey were arrested and pleaded guilty this month, admitting to buying drugs and conspiring to distribute cocaine to fellow officers. However, because they're cops, not one amongst them will see the within of a room.

Despite betraying the community’s trust, breaking their oaths to the constitution, and using their positions in enforcement to commit crimes that they're tasked with stopping, the officers are all expected to receive probation as a part of their sentencing next month.

In an incredibly swift process, the officers have arrested a time period ago and pleaded guilty last week and can be sentenced in November. Under terms of a plea agreement, prosecutors will reportedly seek probation with mandatory drug treatment for the disgraced cops. The officers also agreed to resign from their jobs and can be disqualified from future public employment.

According to Morris County Sheriff James Gannon, the intel that the officers were buying drugs and sharing them came to police within the type of an anonymous Crime Stoppers tip.

“I am pleased with my team and that we are stronger today for rooting out and removing people who would bring dishonor to our organization and our county,” Gannon said before touting the crime stoppers line.

“One of the silver linings to the current sad episode, frankly, is how effectively the Crime Stoppers reporting system works,” Gannon said in an exceeding statement. “It proves that no-one — even corrections and sheriffs officers — are above the law.”

According to

Two of the officers — Sgt. Dominick Andico, 33, and Robert Busold, 27 — admitted to buying cocaine from drug dealers in Morris County and selling it to the opposite officers.

Officer Brian Rzucidlo, 35, and Albert Wyman, 36, each pleaded guilty to 1 count of conspiracy to possess cocaine. Wyman also admitted to obstruction, a disorderly persons offense, for accessing the official arrest database.

Nicholas Ricciotti, 31, pleaded guilty to 1 count of third-degree possession of oxycodone, a prescription painkiller.

Morris County Prosecutor Frederic M. Knapp issued a press release patting themselves on the rear for “swiftly and effectively” handling the cocaine dealing cops.

“All enforcement officers must be held to a high standard of conduct,” he said, completely ignoring the actual fact that regular citizens in their shoes would have most certainly been sentenced to all or any or a part of the 5-year maximum penalty the officers originally faced — meaning these cops were held too far lower standards.

Had these men not been law enforcement officials, rest assured they'd have received a far harsher sentence than simply probation and rehab. Indeed, many will argue — and rightfully so — that they ought to face harsher sentencing thanks to the betrayal of their duties. While cops betraying their communities is one thing, possessing and selling cocaine to willing customers—should never end with anyone in an exceeding cage.

Criminalizing addiction and drug abuse have done nothing to curb use. People are actually dying within the streets at an increasing rate and no amount of totalitarianism can stop it. In fact, since the inception of the warhabituation and overdoses have gotten worse. Why is that?

To understand the answers to its question, we've got to seem at how the state has essentially created and facilitated this opioid epidemic during which America currently finds itself.

For decades, the U.S. government has waged a war on drugs while granting the monopoly on opioid production to the pharmaceutical industry. For years, people that would’ve never thought of trying heroin trusted their doctors who were being paid large sums of cash to prescribe them dangerous and addictive opioids. In some cases, people got fentanyl for a broken ankle.

As the crackdown on opioids came to a head, all the ‘legal’ drug addicts were forced into the black market to continue supporting their addictions. Soccer moms, business professionals, and law enforcement officials alike quickly found themselves buying highly dangerous fentanyl and heroin on the black market to support their government-approved pharmaceutical industry-sustained addictions.

Instead of helping these people, who clearly have physical and mental addictions and want help, the govt simply kept on locking them in cages after they caught them with it — unless after all, your one among these cocaine dealing New Jersey cops.

Research — in step with many enforcement officials — shows that the value of incarceration, especially for repeat drug offenders, is way over simply treating their addiction. it's also much better for a society that values freedom.

Unfortunately, tens of thousands more will likely die and plenty of more are kidnapped and caged before any rational and scientific approach is brought forth by the state that may actually help to curb this epidemic. Five cops running a cocaine ring should function a be-careful call to the remainder of the drug warriors who think locking people in cages is that the proper thanks to fixing this problem.
