  • Don’t care how they got caught,just that they got caught!!Nasty stuff.

    • Yes, it is nasty stuff. You can find the beginnings of addiction to it at your local pharmacy, prescribed by doctors, teachers, social workers the world over. Want to stop the madness? Start at the root.

  • A decent juror with nullification knowledge, could have nullified your case, had you of not resisted arrest. Resisting is bad. Not complying is good. Nullifying bad laws (no victim? No crime!) is the best way to not comply.
    It is not the job of any government to govern your personal choices. It is their job, however, to govern you after you unconsentedly hurt someone.
    Your body is yours & yours alone. So is the cop’s his.

  • Yea, he definitely fucked up by fleeing. Add a few years, at least, to his time.

    I can’t stand tweakers. There is a victim here and that is the end user. If he just had possession, then sure let him tweak I guess. Honestly though, I think meth/crack/speed/oxy ect are harmful substances, so saying no victim is tough imho

    But an oz? Packaging ect.. He is a dealer of poison.

  • My thoughts as I read about this kerfluffel: Good on the cops for not killing the perps. In this day of police violence under the covers of self-defense, the suspects could have easily been DOA. Good cops; extra doughnuts! Really, I’m grateful. But I’m wondering how it would have gone if they’d been Black… Hoping for the best, however. af

    • You do realized that cops kill almost twice as many white people as they do black people each year. Even though statistically black people commit more crimes. but in the end it all comes down to more Americans have been killed by police in the last 12 years then all of the American casualties in the Iraq, Afghanistan war.

  • I’m gonna be clean off crank for 15 yrs I did it cold turkey.with the love and support of my family ,and I feel so lucky to still be here I thank every day is a blessing I hope they can someday find there way and just be sick and tied of being sick and tired of putting that poison inside there body’s

  • Don’t like tweaks, but he did fight for what he believes in, more than most flag wavers these days.
    Never trust a pigtail chick with ink.
    Wondering how things would have been with him one on one with just one cop? Might have had a bargaining chip for freedom.
    Mutants deserve Liberty, too.

  • Well they do make a nice couple if nothing else.
