BC Justice: Heroin & Cocaine dial-a-dope ring busted, released on bail
Barry Artiste, Now Public Contributor
Another coup for BC Justice and Christmas Kisses to the Criminals of the worst kind "Dealers of Death in the form of Cocaine and Heroin".
Santa comes in the form of Red Robed Judges whose Catch and Release program on our War on Drugs is about as effective as the minimal jail sentences or bail given to Drug Dealers.
Makes one wonder why Stressed Out Police Officers shake their heads and wonder why they continually put their lives on the line when Incompetent Judges are indifferent to the dangers Heroin and Cocaine to the public.
My Final Thought
Citizens bitch and whine about annual increases in property taxes, which in part are to hire additional police officers to form Gang or Drug Task forces, now you know why they are needed. We would not need as many officers if the BC Justice system had the testicles and competence to not give immediate bail to every criminal who comes across their bench. Bail, which will allow these criminals "Free Rein" to conduct "Business as Usual" and to get their affairs in order.
British Columbian Taxpayers and Police are in a losing battle, when the efforts of police are rendered useless by a more useless and incompetent Justice System.

RICHMOND, B.C. - Several people have been arrested in connection with a dial-a-dope line that sold cocaine, crack and heroin in Richmond and Vancouver.
Richmond RCMP said today it has shut down the drug line, known as the "Jack" line, after an 11-month investigation in which its drug squad identified the hierarchy and drug runners.
Most of the members were arrested Oct. 13 and charged with trafficking a controlled substance, following a raid of two homes in Richmond - at 102-9133 Hemlock St. and 1703-5028 Kwantlen St. - and one at 5878 Toderick St. in Vancouver.
Just under three kilograms of cocaine and small amounts of heroin were seized.
Those charged include Liang Deng, whom police allege used the alias of Jack and ran the dial-a-dope line; Colin James Montgomery, of Vancouver; Siu Tin Eric Chan, of Vancouver; Ho Ki Henry Tai, of Richmond; and Kar Fung Leung, of Richmond.
David Song Bai Peng, of Vancouver, and Ken Sze Chun Lai, of Richmond, were also arrested and charged with trafficking.
All were released on bail with the exception of Deng, who is remanded in custody until his next court appearance on Jan. 15.
