Now, drug dealers are generally a crafty bunch, as what they do is illegal, but who knew that they would call themselves "The Dream Team" after figuring out that if they kept violence to a minimum, then they could "operate indefinitely"? It's like realizing, "Hey, let's sell addictive drugs so we can get repeat customers!" The NYPD, though, arrested 55 members of a drug ring that operated in Long Island City, and revealed that the "Dream Team that's not a U.S. Olympics basketball team marketing term" had a complex organization, with "street managers" and even a memorandum outlining how to make the drug organization a success. The drug buys were happening at shopping centers and even schools, so the NYPD is revelling in making a big bust that affects both the drug trafficking business and quality of life in Queens. This totally reminds us of New Jack City!
