      Of course the racists have to pop up with some racist sentiment about this man because he is brown. Why does a green card matter anyways, it is ALWAYS wealthy white ranchers who HIRE latinos to tend their crops because the white “boss man” is too lazy to grow his own $200 k crop. Of course this is the OLD WAY in California not just with pot, it is the Spanish workforce who harvests 90% of California’s food crops. The real fear to the Farm Establishment and government is that these poor people will begin to grow their own cannabis crops and prosper, who then will these huge farms be able to exploit? Who will do all the hard work in California if there wasn’t a Southern Border dividing the wealthy and poor? The Government just wants everybody to remain in their place so wealthy land owners can continue to exploit the labor force… Capitalism at it’s finest with human smuggling and forced agricultural labor camps.

      • You are correct sir. Shame on the white man blaming and taking advantage of your illegal brothers. Send them home to Mexico and make those bad white men hire legal Americans for a higher wage. I definitely think they should not have to tolerate the injustice of legals harassing them for simply breaking federal law to pick crops for the bad white man.

      • Racist?!? Hold up your compact!

  • I wish they would say how big the greenhouses were . They could have been clones .

      Most likely they were small little starts or very small plants getting ready for Light Dep. The Sheriff Department likes to bust people with starts because it bolsters their plant count and helps them reach their unfair quotas. They need advertise and make a big deal when they bust Latinos’ so they can continue to exploit the fear factor among the community of “them illegals taking over”. It fits their racist plan of dominion which has existed since the Anslinger’s Reefer Madness Campaign began. We are witnessing the final chapters of the racist war on drugs now, and trust me , the Mendocino County Sheriff Department is nothing but a bunch of redneck racist good old boys.

      • Right. So there arnt any Latinos selling meth, banging white girls, F*ing up the national forest, and all this without US Citizenship? Please. I grew up in Potter Valley, it was everywhere 15 years ago, and to make note of and state obvious social trends is NOT racist! Making exclusionary governmental policy, committing violent hate crimes, yea. But you are way off. Keep busting the Vatos, no mas problemas.

  • One need only check the Mendocino Country Booking Logs to realize that they do not discriminate. White people are well represented. Bulgarians are over-represented. Who gets actually arrested has more to do with who was present at the grow at that moment then anything else. Who can make bail and afford a good lawyer is another matter.

  • Right on , Shakedown. Arrest some more flunkies whose bosses will bail them out. If Latinos , legal or undocumented went on strike for ONE day they would shut this country down. Its not just the mj biz……….its almost all business. Take a southbound tour thru what used to be Mexico now refered to as the” Breadbasket ” . Take a good look and see who does all the work, and I dont just mean fruit pickers. We need a Worker Program now.
