Nice to know that our law enforcement professionals are keeping our communities safe from the horror of marijuana. As we all know, marijuana destroys families and may even lead to YOUR daughter dating someone of hispanic or even african decent. Thank God the Stamp Act was passed in the 30's to protect all right thinking Americans.

I hope that SWAT team goes after that unAmerican homosexual Barney Frank NEXT!

This saddens me greatly, and makes me hope that someone listens to Barney Frank. Please?

One more thought...can we get a comparisson of the number of people (and animals) who have died during raids on posessors/growers, vs. the number of people who have ever died from using marijuana? :P

Note to self: if the Mayor ever bothers me, have unnamed source deliver some "special brownies" to his house and call Feds from disposable cell phone thrown in ocean.

Aww, @4 beat me to it, though I was going to say your neighbor with the pit bulls.

How long does it take to flush 30 pounds of pot? did they really need to kick in the door, couldn't they just knock?
But who brings home a 30lb box (bomb?) that they weren't expecting, especially a politician?

@5 - it depends on if you have a low-flush toilet or not.

Unfortunately, dogs appear to be a common innocent bystander in the war on drugs:

The drug war goes to the dogs

The cop is only facing 8 months if convicted on both counts? For killing an unarmed woman on her knees? While holding an infant? That's a fucking travesty.

Then again, today the MN rags report that 8 MPLS officers were awarded 'honors' for surviving a botched 'no knock' drug/gang raid, (they fucked up, of course - lying informant) where the homeowner was defending his family against intruders. At least nobody was hurt.

I shouldn't be surprised.

Sorry, I suck at linking, otherwise I would.

Remember, concealed video cameras are your best friend if they knock in your door.

Unless you're dead, in which case ... um.

sue the motherfuckers. this was the MAYOR of the town, and the county sheriff raided his house & shot his dogs (one of them was running away!)?

heads need to roll, starting with the sheriff.
