When Media, Law Enforcement and Politicians Censor and Silence a Citizen Anti Drug Dealer and Gang Solution "FIGHT BACK" They Send A Clear Invitation Aiding Drug and Crime Activity in Communities.
Michael A. Bonventre a 25 year activist and (Operations Manager) of Rapid Drug Test Systems has responded to a suggestion in a recent Press and Sun Bulletin article written April 17, 06.
Columnist Mary Haupt wrote, "Those who say users are as much a part of the problem as dealers are on the right track. Which means we, as a community, as families and as individuals, have some soul-searching to do.
We have some homework to do, too. For starters, we could look for models of what has worked in other communities. Surely ours is not the first to confront a drug problem.
And we need to keep talking to each other. Silence will get us nowhere.
We can deny the problem and let the creeps take our community away from us. Or we can resolve, today, to get smart, get moving and take our community back".
Mr. Bonventre sent the first press releases announcing "Fight Back" Anti Drug Dealer and Gang Solutions a proven plan to rid his community of drug dealers, users and drug related crime to all local media, elected officials and law enforcement agencies on April 27, 06.
