Thomas County investigators say they received a tip that repeat offender Sintil Young would be selling crack-cocaine at a business on West Jackson Street in Thomasville.

But they say the 23-year-old didn't submit to arrest easily, even with his car surrounded by deputies.

Says Special Agent Kevin Lee, "He exited the vehicle, fled on foot, and ran into some heavy brush behind the business ... at which time he was taken to the ground and arrested, and underneath him he tried to hide somewhere near a half an ounce of crack-cocaine."

Young is charged with multiple crimes including possession of crack-cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school and playground, and obstruction by resisting arrest.

Narcotics agents say they also found a misdemeanor amount of marijuana on the suspect.

    one day soon, some black prominent person in the thomas county communtity is going to step up and put thomasville justice department under investigation. thomasville ga manages to arrest a lot of blacks for drugs in a city where there isnt any drugs. thomasville barely has a murder rate or overdose rate but their drug agents continue to make bogus arrests of seemingly the same people over and over again. this city's whole economy would crash if they could arrest the blacks in their community. they have the same police force as tallahassee almost with no one to arrest. every drug case from the last 15 to 20 years should be dropped there. the sheriff and chief police should be fired. the people that are on drugs their should be given professional help instead of recycled every 3 months as informants. maybe it will take the governor of ga, a senator, the mayor of another city, or an outburst by the thomasville black community to get those police thugs out of their town.

    The only way to stop drug dealing is for people to not buy them. If they don't have customers then they can't make money.

    Frankly, I think we are too soft on drug offenders, particularly the repeat offenders. Drugs cause deaths of innocent people and ruin lives, so we need to make it a capital offense, change the courts, and start executing repeat offenders. Change the courts by establishing an express lane to provide quick trials, set shorter and fixed times for appeal, limit appeals, and throw the switch if found guilty as soon as the last court of appeal is done. A bit like the old west policy of having a trial for stealing a horse and when the gavel falls with a guilty verdict, carry out the sentence. No more coddling murderers or those of like ilk. If you can't get along peacefully in society, leave the country or we'll take you out of it.
