Thread: Pot Bust Kills Dog

I'm a probation officer not a "cop"
I don't think it is out of line for civilians to questions the circumstances around a video like this. Law enforecment officials are given a great amount of power and with great power comes great responsibility, or so I've heard. If they say "we know he has a grow op and is a dealer" and then can only find a bagie of pot means they failed period. If they end up finding a hydroponic farm under the floorboards or in back or in any way related the the suspect I will be happy to say they had a bit more justification for their actions. But until then it appears like an overuse of power and resources to enforce a draconian law that only serves to undermine trust in and respect for authority and especially LEO's.
You added all that baggage to my comment.
You guys realize your actions in this thread are why no officer has answered your questions right?

Well, my theory is a lot of LEOs are silent because they know it's all bullshit too and don't want to openly say so on a forum that isn't 100% anonymous. Since they aren't posting either way we can't tell, so why not be an optimist?

Well, at least I know where all the drugs went.
