Usually when marijuana growers are raided in the Emerald Triangle no one outside of the area reports on the story. However, a recent raid in Mendocino County drew national attention when it swept up controversial Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, where he was reportedly visiting friends in Redwood Valley.

Now the Daily Mail based out of the United Kingdom is reporting the same raid also captured the brother of Clueless actress Alicia Silverstone.The well-known actress’s brother was arrested when his property as well as a neighboring property belonging to friends of Bergdahl were raided on July 21.

  • You are on it Kym. Good job. There is irony in the fact that the movie she was in was called Clueless but will let someone else come up with a punchline.

  • Yeah, one guy who doesn’t want to slaughter for empire visiting another guy who doesn’t want to slaughter for empire is definitely international newsworthy. A fascist propaganda rag wouldn’t pass that up for the world.

    • Up vote.

    • Problem is that he left his post and joined the enemy (and at that point, regardless of why, they were the enemy) and other soldiers died looking for his deserter ass. The moral problems of that war (or any war) isn’t a factor on how I view him. He could have simply laid down his weapon at his CO’s feet and simply refused to pick it back up. They would have discharged him. What he did led to deaths, and it was for see able, which is murder.

      • According to Fox News
        ‘ Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was apparently “high” with a small group of Afghan soldiers when they were picked up by nomads in 2009, according to a former CIA operative who was running a network of informants on the ground.’

        He was smoking hash with the locals.

  • So who’s the victim? No victim no crime…pure money grab by leo

    • Patience runs out on the junkie
      The dark side hires another soul
      Did he steal his fate or earn it?
      Was he force fed, did he learn it?
      Whatever happened to his precious self control?

      What fixation feeds this fever?
      As the full moon pales and climbs
      Am I living truth or rank deceiver?
      Am I the victim or the crime?
      Am I the victim or the crime?
      Am I the victim or the crime, or the crime?

  • Even the purest of romantics compromise

  • Whatever happened to his precious self control
