Thank goodness the berlin police arrested these criminals. Regardless of whether they're handicapped,they deserve to rot in jail for participating in these illegal acts. I dont understand why people need to waste their lives away on substances that slowly kill them anyways...

Thats your opinion Nicholas. No one deserves to rot in jail unless they robbed, killed, or molested. Get out of here with your negative opinions. Every kid that bought those drugs made the concious choice. and as to all those pills, HE WAS PERSCRIBED EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM, clearly LOOK AT THE PERSCRIPTION BOTTLES. thank you have a good day
