James Triplett had his customers lined up around the corner in broad daylight, the feds say.

Not for concert tickets. Not for iPhones.

For heroin.

Now 42 people are facing state or federal drug charges for their alleged roles in supplying and distributing heroin around West Grenshaw and Independence in the North Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side. Among them is the 33-year-old Triplett, also known as “Trell,” who authorities said controlled the drug market in the area.

Investigators even included a photo in a federal criminal complaint spanning more than 200 pages. They said the photo depicts a line of people waiting June 16 to get their hands on heroin supplied by Triplett’s organization in the 3700 block of West Grenshaw.

The photo was taken just south of the Eisenhower Expressway, which has come to be known as “Heroin Highway.”

The feds said Triplett’s suppliers sometimes put the heroin in bags with logos that included green Playboy bunnies, Hershey kisses, basketballs, Batman, black pandas or “purple ladies.”

Chicago Police and Drug Enforcement Administration agents assigned to the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force led the investigation. Sixteen people face federal charges. They include Triplett, who is charged with drug conspiracy and faces a minimum of 10 years in prison if convicted. Another 26 face state charges.

Authorities said they arrested 32 people in all Wednesday morning, confiscating 12 guns, $50,000 in cash, nearly half a kilogram of heroin and more than half a kilogram of cocaine. They also searched several homes, three alleged stash houses and seized two cars, including a 2014 Maserati GranTurismo.

The federal defendants, all of who were in custody Wednesday, began appearing in the afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge Maria Valdez.

Florida currently has more concealed-carry permit holders than any other state, with 1,269,021 issued as of May 14, 2014

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

I can't believe the Task Force was anywhere near that neighborhood for a long time. Do people just line up for random reasons around there?

Seems they are also profitable.

Question: Does this dealer who destroys lives in his community deserve a quick trial and execution (as happens in Muslim countries) or not? It seems to be working.

I was wondering why the federal government had to prosecute this.

I have seen crackhouses in the hood before.

I guess these people don't have to work due to getting free handouts from the government.

I saw someone roll up to a house a few years ago in Fort Worth Texas, in the ghetto area full of hood rats. It was one person and they were selling drugs and people were coming and going (20 people per hour). I did call police, It took them a couple hours to come and check it out, by that time the drug dealer was gone.

Also in the same area I purchased a crack house, it had 2 large and mean dogs living in it. Everything was boarded up and reinforced with woood including the doors and windows. They had a little slit in the window so the drug dealers could take money and distribute the dope.

And I guess people who have guns are murderous criminals, it's just a matter of time...

Generalizations suck, just saying...
