I wonder how many thought they could recognize a drug dealer before reading this.

Makes me think of how we all think of the Amish communities. We have a small community here, but where I used to live we had a large community of Mennonites (smaller spin off of Amish). The notable difference with them is they do drive vehicles (but they can't have any chrome on them), and they have electricity, telephones. But they dress the same, school the same, very tight communtity. One is a convicted sex offender. I guess crap hits every community.

It really does but conversely those that a person think might be a drug dealer or whatever other criminal they choose just might be the one out there saving someones life.
