West Palm Beach Man Selects Drug Dealer as Occupation and is Arrested
A West Palm Beach man filled out an arrest report. Under occupation he put drug dealer. That drug dealer faces a long list of charges most of them have to do with drugs and he can spend more than 15 years behind bars.
Before this last encounter Mr.Phillips has been arrested more than 12 times and has been convicted for more than seven felonies. Before he got arrested again Phillips just spent at least 9 months in prison. Phillips latest run in with cops is when he cut in front of a police vehicle and instead of the cop pulling him over he followed him to a drug transaction. The cop had called back up and next thing you know the cops are on a chase to get them. A k-9 dog was needed in order to catch the criminal. Once he was caught he had more than 22 grams of heroin and $2,316 on his person-and the car he was driving was reported stolen, according to Palm Beach Post.
Phillips has been arrested a bunch of times. Most of the crimes he committed were felonies meaning he should have obtained more jail time. It seem like every time he has been arrested the court system is just giving him a slap on the wrist. Even after his last encounter he was still able to receive bail meaning he can easily post that money and go back out and continue to do the same thing over and over again. It seems that jail time is not working so instead of throwing them behind bars all the time why don’t they receive help on how to make money the legal way and classes about drug addiction and how it is ruining the streets.
