Plants Are Growing! Five Houses From A School!
Marc Randazza posts about a pot bust in Henderson, Nevada, "Grow House Busted: Children Saved(?)":
He quotes KLAS:
The house is five houses down from a school.
"We act upon every tip that we get. It makes us feel good that we are getting a steady amount of tips every night," Lt. Laz Chavez of Metro Police said. "We have a lot of children that walk by this house to go to and from the school, and that just goes to show the disregard that these criminals that put together these grow houses."
Police said the house posed a danger to the residents living near by and to a school just a half block away.
Marc puts it right in perspective:
Because, umm, you know... plants growing in a house... that, ummm, yeah, that shit is dangerous.
The mere suggestion that marijuana inside a house poses a threat to children walking by is just asinine. It shows the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the war on drugs. If you really need to stoop to that level of lying, that level of bullshit, then you should turn in your badge and go be a Wal-Mart greeter, because it displays that you suffer from either a complete lack of intelligence or a complete lack of integrity. Nobody should be walking around on the street with a gun and a badge who lacks in either of those categories.
Do your job, if you must, and you lack the courage to actually stand up for what is right.
But stop fucking lying.
