Buzz: Drug dealers set bounties

Sources have shared that a new frightening wrinkle has developed in the escalating gun violence in Pensacola and Escambia County. Drug dealers have begun to place bounties on their enemies, some as high as $50,000. In many cases, the killers are prepaid and given guns to make the hit. Anyone who takes the money and fails to make the kill  becomes a target.

As one person told me: “Too much drug money is flowing on the streets. Guns are readily accessible.  And life means nothing.”

He said, “You take a 15-year-old boy who has nothing, give him $25,000 cash, a gun and drop off him on the street where his target lives. He has to kill or be killed.”

  1. This situation only emphasizes the importance of supporting our schools so these individuals have workplace skills. Too many students in the Escambia County School District are socially promoted and grades are absurdly inflated.
