Father-of-three jailed after confronting drug dealer who sold heroin to his family
Drug dealers have been dealing to this guy's family for months. It's breaking his heart so does he:
a) go to the police
b) try to find ways to get his family to stop buying
c) go round to the dealers' house, flush their stash down the loo and threaten to kill them all
(for non-readers of Fark, it's C)
Last night at her flat in Blairgowrie, Drummond's distraught wife Elizabeth, 27, said that her husband had previously tried to reason with the drug dealers.
She said: 'He asked the boys, pleaded and begged them to stop dealing to his sister and brother-inlaw. But they carried on doing it.
'Peter was sure the police would not do anything about it if he told them about the dealers. He doesn't like to see his family being hurt so it was the last straw for him.
Sorry buddy, but if you don't even ask the police for help, then what do you expect.
Anyway upshot is that he admits he was in the wrong, he's now serving two months in jail (which is a holiday camp obviously)
There's no word on whether the dealers are being dealt with.
And this comment is top rated:
Hopefully this is the start of people taking the law into their own hands, as our current legal system is in favour of the criminal. Well done to this man for confronting this evil drug dealer, I would have done the same. We should all buy this man a beer.

1,222 plus alan think that vigilantism is the answer to all crime.
Tell me, Sheriff McCreadie, what exactly do you think that the police would have done if Mr Drummond had taken his complaint to them?????

Given the dealers' lottery money and immunity from arrest, obviously. TWAT.
Well done Judge, were all a lot safer now. All those nice drug dealers can go about their business knowing that they are protected by the law!

And the other side:
Quite right that he was charged.You can't go barging into peoples houses threatening them.His brother in law is an adult who chose to buy drugs of his own free will.Nothing was "pushed".The pathetic war on drugs will never be won.Legalise,tax and make it safe.It's the only way.
