When father-of-three Peter Drummond discovered that a drug dealer had sold heroin to a member of his family he decided to take matters into his own hands. He stormed into pusher John Nellies' home and confronted him  -  before flushing the dealer's heroin down the toilet. 

But it was Drummond - not Nellies - who found himself in court. And to the despair and anger of his family, Drummond, whose children are all under five years old, was jailed by a sheriff for his actions.

Drummond, 26, shook his head in disbelief as he was ordered to serve two months in prison for breaking the peace by barging into Nellies' home and threatening him. Perth Sheriff Court was told that Drummond had reached the end of his tether after watching his family being 'torn apart' by heroin abuse...

Do you agree with this man's two month jail sentence for confronting a drug dealer who sold his family member heroin?

This guys should be commended, not sentenced to jail time. This is why the justice system is f**ked.

Two months. He demanded entry into the guy's house while hammered, and then threatened to kill him. Vigilantes are bad news, mmmkay? The justice system exists, use it. Two months is perhaps a bit much, but the principle makes perfect sense to me.

So as long as the dealer gets his sentence, I'm cool with that.

That's what happens when you decide to commit crimes instead of calling the cops. As mallet pointed out, vigilante justice just isn't a good idea. It's great for movies, but then so are nuclear bombs and zombies.

It's not OK to turn into judge, jury, and executioner at the drop of the hat.

True but still not fair. Read in the papers a guy who saved his brothers from Nazi skinheads getting beaten to death has to pay the Nazis trying to kill his brother. Fair world fair world.

Does illegal property even count as valued property? What about the police seizing drugs and disposing of it? The most he could possibly be charged for is trespassing, and maybe threatening the guy, but honestly, this whole thing is absurd.

I agree that if he were smart, he probably could have gotten off with a little community service. So the sentence is perhaps a bit harsh. But let's face it - he went barreling into a drug dealer's home, threatened the guy, and flushed his stash. He's no 100-watt bulb. He probably pissed the judge off by being as much of a brash idiot in court as he is in life.

you cant barge into peoples homes and threaten to hurt them
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/18/09 - 12:06:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's BS, the guy had every right to threaten that drug dealer and do what he did.

When does anyone have the right to threaten another person?

I don't know the whole story, but I think he could've handled it more smoothly, like, say, call the police and have them confiscate the stash?

I guess I don't know Canadian law too well, but here he actually doesn't have any right to do that. I'd be willing to be the same goes in Canada.

Entering someone's home without permission is always illegal. The man should have called the police instead of taking matters into his own hands.
What if he had accidentally broken into the wrong home? That's why the court system exists, to make sure that people are not wrongly punished. It is not up to individual people to punish those who they judge to be wrongdoers.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/18/09 - 2:48:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
He should have called 911... it's too bad he wasn't thinking straight.
13 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 2/26/09 - 1:38:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I agree with it. What he did was clearly in violation of the law.

I agree. I would have done the same damn thing.

Drug Dealers should just be executed, I say, no trial, just a bullet to the brain.

13 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/1/09 - 5:36:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes and No: I understand his anger - or rage, even - but he should still have left this to the cops.
13 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 3/2/09 - 5:42:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
NO sometimes you just got to be the Law

And if you do that, when they catch up to you you're on the wrong side of it. I understand the facination with vigilante comic book heroes, I really do. But outside of a comic book there's no place for this kind of crap.

Whatever is quickest or least painful... in this case, probably being torn in half.
13 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 3/18/09 - 4:42:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
He should be punished, but this seems excessive. He didn't have a criminal record and the article discusses issues in his personal life that contributed to his state of mind. Parole and community service would be more appropriate, I think.

I wonder what happened to the dealer.
13 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 3/18/09 - 4:47:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
My guess is that once his stash was flushed, there wasn't much solid evidence against him . . . .
13 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 3/18/09 - 5:02:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
But did the guy flush ALL his drugs?
