they should wait till late morning to raid drug dealers' homes - usually the people with legit jobs are safely off to work while the suspects are still lazing about in bed. and then you can kill at will! wheee! go usa!

Good thing he wasn't protecting his constitutional rights against undeclared search and seizure ...



Never mind.

I thought giving the cops carte blanche to kick in doors, bust heads, and fire their weapons at will was the reason we declared War on Drugs in the first place. I mean, the original justification was that drugs were a public health risk, but you don't see health inspectors running around with Kevlar body armor kicking in restaurant doors looking for salmonella outbreaks, do you?

Judge, jury, and executioner.

Better that every cop on the force get killed in the line of duty from taking the time to make sure they have the right person than for one single innocent person to die at their hands. My sympathy for any of their bullshit ended the day a couple of cops pulled their guns on me and my preschool children in a case of mistaken identity. Cops go fucking batshit when they have a hard-on for someone.

@5 too true. I think they all believe that if they talk calmly the bad guys will jump out from behind a tree in striped prisoner outfits and mow them down. Thusly, bringing society to an end.

So has anyone read the New Yorker story on the medical marijuana culture in Cali yet?

I live in Buffalo, but still have Washington plates on my car from moving here last summer, and I read the Slog daily. Imagine my split-second disorientation when the Slog, my trustworthy source for what's going on back home, covers the same story I heard on WBFO driving home from my stupid job today. Yeah, I watched that video about the Seattle fault at some point going totally Biblical on our asses, but still....take me home, country roads and/or 2600 miles of I-90. Sorry, Barfalo.
