you can't sell drugs to people who don't want them. this guy is half the problem,ignoring the other half keeps the cops in business. eliminate the market and the dealers go away. if it was his first arrest offer the dude a decent deal to give up his clientele.not a get out of jail free card.monitor them as they will be looking for a new connection. in the process you nab them and the new supplier. and so on and so on. let it be known the rockland will offer deals to dealers in return for names. let the dealers do all the work. sooner or later they will be going to bergen county and rockland will need less police wasting time on the "war on drugs"
