Justin Baker, 20, may have thought three times is the charm for selling drugs but it is not quite same if you sell the drug three times to the same undercover police officer.
Baker was arrested for trying to sell cocaine and a prescription painkillers to the officer in June and August. He then met the same officer at a Subway for a third sale.
He is now facing one count of selling cocaine, two counts of selling it near a school or park and one count of selling opium or a derivative near a school or park.
At some point, you have to get a sentence increase for simply not trying very hard. With falling educational standards, declining economic indicators, and a political system functioning at the level of kindergarten, our leading place in crime may be the only thing that distinguishes us but people like Baker give American criminals everywhere a bad name.
By the way, if you are nailed three times selling drugs to the same officer, is he still considered undercover?
