STR Big Drug Bust at TCU
News just breaking in Dallas. Big drug bust at TCU that could include a team player in some sport. Included Acid, prescription drugs, marajuana. About 20 people involved. Were exposed by other students who were approached. Big news story on TV now involving press conference at TCU where students involved were expelled immediately. This was an under cover case that involved a drug bust this AM. Names not released yet but can involve one or more football players.

I'm watching the press conference right now:

RE: STR Big Drug Bust at TCU
A business model that involves the creation of a drug ring at a Christian university, sounds very conceptually flawed.

17 TCU students arrested, described as drug dealers

Posted Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2012

UPDATE: Seventeen TCU students, including four football players,
have been arrested after a six-month investigation by Fort Worth and TCU police that included students selling drugs to undercover officers, police and TCU officials said Wednesday.

"Many current TCU students" were arrested early Wednesday in a drug sweep around campus, TCU Chancellor Victor J. Boschini Jr. said in a news release posted on the university's website.

"TCU has never before experienced a magnitude of student arrests such as this," he said.

PS. Yes, this could have (maybe did and/or will in the future) at any Univ, including private ones like TCU.

I think TCU is doing a good job handling this situation. They are sending a clear message that they are not going to tolerate this on campus.
Lots of damage control going on by TCU and they are doing it well. The press conference is all over the local TV stations. Lots of reporters in the audience asking all kinds of questions and TCU officials are all there to answer them. No TELEPROMPTER is in use. This is a good model to use if something like this ever happens at Memphis or at UCF, etc.

def sounds like a pretty big bust but if people are shocked by rich kids at a private university doing heavy drugs then they are living in a fantasy world...

RE: STR Big Drug Bust at TCU
It is always interesting to see the results of bad decisions. Lots of people come on here saying drugs need to be legalized. But the truth of the matter is that they are CURRENTLY ILLEGAL so look at the consequences of your decisions. In this case, a rich kid at a private school decides he or she can make extra money selling drugs....why not....every one is doing it...so it must be OK...right? Now the result is arrest, getting kicked out of school, having a criminal record, probably dissinfranchisement by family and friends, a permanent record of the crime, poor if any future job opportunities, possible prison term, will never be able to rent a decent apartment to live in....in essence a very bad life and future. That is why you stay away from drugs....it's because of the consequences as the law now stands. Not what you think it should be but how it REALLY IS.

Drug possession as well as paraphernalia possession can be serious charges depending on priors.

For example, a family member was recently pulled over in Arizona with an ounce of marijuana and a pipe. These are both felony charges with up to $150,000 fine EACH and/or 5 years in prison. Or course they can be reduced to misdemeanors or possibly dismissed.

Drug possession with intent to distribute is some SERIOUS prison time.

Quote:The football players arrested are: junior linebacker Tanner Brock, junior safety Devin Johnson, junior defensive tackle D.J. Yendrey and sophomore offensive tackle Tyler Horn.

They've already been removed from the roster on their athletics website.

Absolutely right. It amazes me how many people throw away careers, especially in sports, by not putting down the mess that will ruin their careers. When it becomes legal, then you have ground to stand on, as it is now you face the consequences, AS YOU SHOULD.
