  • Food for thought

    Were they wearing tracksuits.? ….. I mean cause that would explain why they were so fast. Ahem.

    • No.. the cops around here are just overweight sweat hogs that dont know how to be stealth or run fast through the woods..or else they’re just too chickenshit to deal with a confrontation with real dangerous criminals. They let those other methican cartel murderers get away too. I am greatful that this will hopefully get cleaned up though.

  • The Horror! The Horror! If exposed, people might go out and love one another and eat potato chips!

    Good thing the government is around to protect us from peace and chips, and instead push toxic pharmaceuticals like candy that rot the body, mind and soul…

    • Do you even realize how horrible the cartel is? People living in so cal and places like Tijuana try they’re hardest not to buy cartel weed because of the pain and suffering they’ve caused.
      Sooo. Yeah these trespass grown are good to nip in the bud. (I hate puns),
      You are totally correct about the whole idea of pharmaceuticals destroying lives everyday though, yet they can’t even get funding to do research on medicine that can actually help people. Makes no sense.

      • what is life without dreams ..of puns...

        Lost me at …”I hate puns” …

      • People in Southern California, by and large, are ignorant, opportunistic beasts — always eager to buy low and sell high — caring not about the rectitude of their actions or the consequences that might come about.

      • It doesn’t make sense,but it makes a ton of money. And it’s our fault for letting our political representatives get away with it and for electing the same life long corrupted politicians over and over expecting something different. And from the look of thing we didn’t learn our lesson with the Bushes and are going to repeat the same dam mistake again.

  • What nationality were they ? In garbage look for re-fried beans, chilies, salsa,tortillas,letters and notes written in other languages,pictures of Saint Mary, Virgin of Guadalupe , paint spray cans. etc.

  • It’s not like they didn’t know they were on private property.stupid is as stupid does!these are the kind of stupid people who come here and FUCK ED us all up.the good Ole days

  • Well at least one methican mega grow gone .now there are a thousand more to go.bullshitgarians and the methican s got to go .

  • Pot heads rarely understand why these growing practices are so bad, the point being that “large scale water diversion from Atwell Creek” was going on. And I don’t think legalizing pot will prevent these things from happening because “home grown” will always be in big demand, and users/growers have a very long history of agitating against authority.

  • Odelay, vato, arriba, arriba, vamanos!

  • Those poor workers were expected to hand water 11000 plants? That’s barbaric.

  • Lol, “scrawny”.

  • I don’t care how ‘scrawny’ the plants were. Even if each plant only yielded 1/2 an ounce each, were still talking that was potentially around 350lbs. Just wanted to add the 1/2 ounce per plant was a very underestimated amount, so that was a big grow.

  • Bulgarians in track suits /Seems that description is right on the money .

    • Those nikes in that trash pile do look bullshitgarian style. Dont think ive heard much of them with trespass grows though…just buying up all the land around here. People need to Stop selling land to these greasy parasites!
