    What a silly statement to make. I’ve lived in Brockton my whole life and have never felt unsafe in this city. If you’re looking for trouble, you’ll certainly find it, but other than that, you’re perfectly safe. Don’t be so quick to judge, or believe what the corrupted local media says, for that matter.

    i think the narration was not in sync with the video. I’m sure they were referring to the green monsters for $80 a piece which is still ridiculous.

  • kentucy9999:

    4 or 5 yrs ago it was a dollar a milligram. 20 mg= 20dollars…..40mg=40…..80mg=80. I’m not sure if inflation has “kicked in.” I guarantee you no one is paying $80 for a 20mg Oxy unless they are rich or stupid.

  • ReligiousZombie:

    I like the director’s use of irony in showing the “Drug-Free School Zone” sign. What a joke. That’s America for you: it’s easier to create propaganda than solve the problem.
