What do you say to that if you're the cop who took this guy's report? I mean you have to arrest him, but it must be hard to resist the urge to sit him down, slowly explain why he's an idiot, and just let him go home.

It's possible the guy was just really spiteful. If you get farked over when buying drugs and want to get back at the guy without getting shot this seems like the only way to do it. All he is getting charged with is conspiracy for the attempted illegal purchase of illicit drugs, which if I had to guess would give him a slap on the wrist considering the circumstance. The dealer on the other hand got conspiracy and possession with intent which, depending on how much weed you have, could mean a decent sentence.

Next on the news, some guy buys a bag of ice cubes from the store, and is arrested when he claims he was ripped off buying "ice". In other words never talk to a cop about anything because everything has a double meaning.

Philip Waldbauer allegedly told officers that he approached a couple of men about buying $10 worth of "grass," the colloquial term for marijuana. And that is what Waldbauer received; a baggy full of grass. Lawn grass, that is.

Can I get an editor in the house, please? For farks sake.

The extension of laws in this society is absurd. Getting charged with a felony to commit a misdemeanor - a misdemeanor which never happened. The state can make a case against you for anything...where's that fascist barometer....

Several questions...
1) What is " a strong-arm robbery " ?
2) "charged with conspiracy and possession with intent" possesion of lawn clippings?
3) didn't thay sell him exactly what he ask for?

Just kitbash him for being stupid and move along. It doesn't take "Officers, including agents with Davenport's Tactical Operations Bureau" a whole dang swat team.

4) " impersonating a public official " ICAC.NSW clears this up real good "In some circumstances private contractors and consultants are also public officials" so that could be just about anybody?

This 'grass' is a hybrid. This is a cross, ah, of Bluegrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Featherbed Bent, and Northern California Sensemilia. The amazing stuff about this is, that you can play 36 holes on it in the afternoon, take it home and just get stoned to the bejeezus-belt that night on this stuff.

Yep, it's complete crap. Any cop that wants to can take a misdemeanor possession charge and turn into a felony. Charges will almost always be reduced to misdemeanor by the time it hits court, but the cop still gets credit for the felony arrest. So now when the DA says we're giving you a deal by reducing to a misdemeanor people believe them and take it when they could probably fight it down to nothing.

Jon iz teh kewl: Next on the news, some guy buys a bag of ice cubes from the store, and is arrested when he claims he was ripped off buying "ice". In other words never talk to a cop about anything because everything has a double meaning.

What do you think he said to the cops? If he really wanted to buy a bag of lawn clippings, then why would he be complaining to the cops that he got a bag of lawn clippings?

The cop would have made sure that he clarified with him that he wanted to buy marijuana and got a bag of lawn clippings. This would not be that difficult to do because this guy was dumb enough to confuse lawn clippings with bud and dumb enough to talk to police about it. Do you find it hard to believe that if the cop asked him to clarify what he wanted to buy, that the guy wouldbe fool enough to do it?

Remember the "Cops" episode where the guy flags down the cop to complain that he'd given $20 to a woman in a house to buy crack, and the woman had taken the money and didn't give him the crack.

The guy leads them to the house, where the woman indignantly denies being a drug dealer -- "I'm no drug dealer! I'm a PROSTITUTE."

I mean, why would someone traduce themselves by selling drugs, when they could do honest work, like selling their body?

Anyway, the cop patiently explained to the moron that buying crack is ILLEGAL, and that if you get ripped off while doing something illegal, that it's really not a good idea to biatch to the cops about it. The idiot tried to complain some more, and the cop basically told him to shut up and walk away, or he'd get arrested for admitting to trying to buy drugs.

The moron looked really confused as he walked away, and the prostitute glared at everyone, hands on her hips.

I loved that episode.

When I was in college, in a very conservative town, I was charged with two felonies. The amount of total drugs (pot) that was ever involved in said felonies was just under 1/8th of an ounce.

Two felonies. And I was not even a dealer.

I am unclear on whether I should dislike you or give you a thumbs up. Stating that, I must ask a few questions.

1)Do you have a jorb(A real one, I'm sure you understand the context)
2)Do you buy quality?

Please complete this survey so I may accurately form a good/bad opinion about you.

I remember her non challantly explaining in front of her kid, "I'm no drug dealer, I'm a prostitute" and the cop was able to keep a straight face. That was one of the best episodes ever.

I had a law professor who said that "Cops" was one of the most enlightening shows he had ever watched. He had been a criminal defense attorney for years and years and believed that all cops were liars because they would testify that one of his clients gave them consent to search, and the cop would find drugs. Why the hell would someone consent to a search of their car or whatever if they knew that the had drugs? But then after leaving his practice and becoming a professor, "Cops" started airing, and you'll see dumbass after dumbass agreeing that the cops can search somewhere where the idiots know that they have drugs. He since found out that criminals believe that cops actually don't want to search and just want to hear that you have nothing to hide, that the cops will search it anyway, or that they believe that the cop can get a warrant faxed to his car if you say "no." I have never heard of the last one actually happening, although I suppose that it could happen. My friend who works for the state police says he doesn't know of any cop that has a fax machine in his car, though.

Actually what happens is this, you do not consent to the search, they call the K9 unit in - he indicates the sent of drugs in the car, that give them probable cause no warrant needed, search of car starts.... Or they get you on some sort of dumb traffic stop and you have some arrestable offense on your record, search of car also happens
