New Bedford Drug Bust

Been a lot of that around Boston lately.

"New Bedford police arrest 10 in operation targeting drug dealers" by Aneri Pattani Globe Correspondent  June 24, 2015

New Bedford police arrested 10 people on drug charges Tuesday, including one man who allegedly left his 4-year-old nephew alone in the car with an undercover police officer multiple times to complete a drug deal, officials said.

Mark Anthony Ramos, 26, allegedly left his nephew with an officer whom he believed to be a drug buyer twice during a heroin transaction, Captain Steven Vicente said.

Ramos was one of 10 people arrested in the undercover operation targeting street-level heroin and cocaine dealers, Vicente said.

The men and women arrested ranged in age from 26 to 64 years old. Nine were New Bedford residents, and one was from North Dartmouth, the captain said. They all face drug distribution charges.

“We do this type of buy-bust operation every once in a while,” Vicente said. “It’s just one part of the many activities the narcotics unit does.”

After Ramos was arrested, the state Department of Children and Families was notified. The agency found that the mother had no knowledge of the incident, and left the boy in her care, Vicente said.


I will be seeing Jade Helm until next year now, although I'm beginning to wonder:

Artificial Intelligence Takes the Battlefield: Who Is Really Running Jade Helm 15?

The implication is artificial intelligence, and given what one sees at the movies or on TV, one can no longer dismiss the obscene future where man melds with and becomes machine. The terminators may be a lot closer than you think, and are already with us in a way. Now I understand the Globe bu$ine$$ obsession with robotics in a whole new light.
