Can't touch this! Cops outraged at pot ruling.

Posted April 28th, 2011 by warsaw

This story comes via a "social media site for cops." The comments section is a trove of material for discussion. As I read through the posts, I couldn't help replaying in my mind how many times these cops say, "I'm just enforcing the law..." These comments give insight to how they really feel. You can see this in what some of them say about judges and their children as well as the law and how they believe it should be applied.

Cops outraged at pot ruling

I did like what one poster had to say: Posted by scu275 on Tuesday, April 26, 2011 05:14 PM Pacific "Lets face it, our society and therefore our judicial system has straddled the fence on this issue long enough. Slowly but inevitably we are heading towards complete legalization of marijuana. I for one am getting tired of the facade. We risk our lives, spend thousands of hours and billions of dollars investigating marijuana only to see the justice system demean our efforts by handing down ridiculously low sentences and then pass laws which further hamper our crime fighting efforts and bolster the criminals' abilities to operate. We supposedly go after the "bigger fish" and alleviate penalties for "personal use". Have they ever heard of the concept of supply and demand? Let's just legalize it outright and drop the farce. We can then move onto crime fighting which is worthwhile and the government can collect more taxes. The courts would likely clear up their overloaded dockets as well. Win/win. I see no point in enforcing laws which the society and the judicial do not care about. " A LEAP member perhaps?
