        I couldn’t agree more. The police admittingly spent a year investigating a few drug addicts while murder is at an all time high. Armed robberies ate a common occurance. People are scheming and embezzling thousands of dollars, yet all resources are put towards the “War On Drugs’. Police officers are being arrested for DUI’s and Domestic assaults. That’s okay though they will get a pat on the back as long as the bring in the man caught with a xanax, or the woman called with a loratab. Its all about the money. The crooked lawyers charge thousands to represent these people. The more money they have the better the plea will be. I guess the cops, lawyers, prosecuting attorney’s, and on up to the judges have to make their money some way….

        raven, I was in Cali when this went down, when my g/f told me about what Oliver had said, my reply was ” well, when are they gonna quit stealin and dealin…or did they have plans to arrest themselves?”

  • mike

    Well Debbie maybe just maybe there are getting to the source of all those issues, by getting the drugs off the street. Not all law enforcement are crooks, nor are judges or lawyers. They provide a service, to get people off of crimes they have committed, or they wouldn’t be hiring them in the first place. If you really think your innocent represent your self, just make sure you know the laws when you do, you see lawyers go to school to learn that as well as judges. As far as deals being made between lawyers and judges, well sometimes there going for something bigger than what they already have. those decision are really made before it gets to a judge. Law enforcement has the hardest job, with the least amount of pay. 99% of cops are honest people who put on a gun, and go out and enforce the law everyday. They do the job because they love the work, not everyone can do there job. Next time you call 911, you will appreciate them to.

      I can agree with most of this. However, where the problem comes in is when kids with as little as 5 grams of pot are thrown under the bus and have their entire lives ruined because they will not risk their lives to give up their source. Do you really feel 5 grams is getting at the source?

  • espn

    i know 2 of them and 1 is my neighbor i got 2 small kids and 1 on the way we see beer bottles in the yard and even we called the police one time because we seen a syringe in our cross a street neighbor near the bus stop and the road my child seen it .

  • Friday

    It must take time and resources to get enough evidence to arrest this many people. You just can’t arrest them, you have o do it in a way that the charges will stick in a court of law. It is a lawyers job to give his client the best defense he can. Everyone deserves a good defense, we don’t get to pick d choose.
    With that in mind it is law enforcements job to build cases and make the charges stick so they don’t get tossed out in court and the DA has something to work with.

    I for one am glad they took these 13 off the streets. From what I read here it seems they get a lot of the other criminals also.

  • Dumb doctors

    It’s sad the doctors get you addicted to the pills and then the police arrest you for buying them when the doctors cut you off cold turkey. It’s just a money scheme. The doctors are the real terrorist to the people.

    For Mike and Friday- Please do not assume that no one has studied the law. I hope you will take the time to review the following cases:
    North Carolina appeals case of 2010 State v. Beam: “It is the general rule that where the criminal intent and design originates in the mind of one other than the defendant, and the defendant is, by persuasion, trickery or fraud, incited and induced to commit the crime charged in order to prosecute him for it, when he would not have committed the crime, except for such incitements and inducements, these circumstances constitute entrapment and a valid defense.”
    and
    2004 State v. Redmon, 164 N.C. App. 658, 662, 596 S.E.2d 854, 858 (2004): “The law … forbids convictions that rest upon entrapment.”

    State v. Branham 2002 “The defense of entrapment consists of two elements: (1) acts of persuasion, trickery or fraud carried out by law enforcement officers or their agents to induce a defendant to commit a crime, (2) when the criminal design originated in the minds of the government officials, rather than with the innocent defendant, such that the crime is the product of the creative activity of the law enforcement authorities.”

    State v. Jamerson 1983 “After defendant repeatedly rejected requests to purchase drugs for informant and agent, agent finally convinced defendant to purchase drugs for agent by providing money and convincing defendant that the agent was an addict and was desperate.”

    State v. Stanley 1975 “Court found that the defendant’s prior conviction of possession of marijuana did not indicate a predisposition to commit the crime in this case.”

    Other references valid to this issue are:
    United States v. Jimenez Recio – Jacobson v. United States 1992
    State v. Branham 2002 – State v. Stanley 1975.
    State v. Morse 2009 – State v. Hageman – State v. Beam 2010
    State v. Stanley 1987 – State v. Morse 2009 – State v. Luster 1982
    State v. Salame 1974 – United States v. Russell 1973
    State v. Sanders 1989 – Sherman v. United States 1958
    State v. Hageman 1982
    I have personally worked alongside deputies and detective and have the highest regard for the job most of them do. However;
    there are those for whom I have very little respect. I am also very much aware those who investigate individuals and those who arrest are often not one in the same and there are political goals and motives for “sting” operations (often defined as deceptive and outlawed in some countries) which in the end often ruin the lives of innocent victims of the erroneous arrests.
