22 years for Va. drug smuggler

A man who spent $127,210 on air fare, hotels and rental cars supplying cocaine from Atlanta to Virginia's Tidewater area has been sentenced to 22 years in prison.

The government says 35-year-old David Edward Bragg Jr. was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in Norfolk on conspiring to distribute cocaine and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He entered his guilty plea previously.

According to court documents, the Norfolk man ran up the big travel bill between 2004 and 2008 when he was moving cocaine from Atlanta to places like Chesapeake, Virginia Beach and Norfolk.

Some $600,000 in cash was also seized during the investigation, and luxury cars and a home were forfeited.

And for every guy like this you put away at the taxpayers expense, another 5 will pop up to take his place.

Just legalise drugs and treat their abuse like the health problem it is.

fund treatment centers and education programs and give people alternatives to drugs like art, culture and participatory sports activities.

it's time to get smart on the drug issue.
