Editorial: Drug arrests ... we like what happens when deputies listen, and then act

We hope this is, as Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk says, the start of a trend.

We believe the year 2010 gets a welcome public-safety boost with a crackdown on illegal drug traffic. The case unfolded at street level; we hope to see the results go higher.

Rambosk says the arrest of eight men in Immokalee for selling and possessing cocaine and marijuana caps a year of investigation and signals law-enforcement actions to come. We especially like that the investigation came as the result of complaints from law-abiding citizens weary of seeing their neighborhoods dragged down.

Good: Law enforcement that listens, then leads.

Now, which neighborhood will be next? What will be the next level of the drug trade to feel the squeeze?
