So, they misplaced some evidence and moved it back to the proper location when the procedure in place to catch these errors caught the error? Of all the vile activities police involves themselves in, this seems petty and inconsequential.

What am I missing?

What a nearby location looks like.

and when those two kilos disappear once again...

What was that internet video from GNN.TV years ago??? Yeaaaaa....it was "Crack The CIA". Among other things, it discussed how there are thousands upon thousands of open/unresolved cases of police corruption envolving drugs.

The drug war is quite the racket.

The fact that they are lying?

This is what happens when you confiscate Shroedinger's cocaine.

Every single police department in this nation is corrupt.

Not necessarily. But every single civic entity in the greater Boston area sure is.

Same thing happened in Providence RI about 10 years ago. Couple of kilos disappeared, the Feds were about to get involved, and right before that happened the coke was found in a storage room. It had been "Misplaced", and Buddy Cianci had a press conference about it right before he went to prison for corruption.

Interesting fact: Apparently there are guidelines to how much cocaine weight can disappear from "evaporation". There were like 3 OUNCES missing, and that was the excu...I mean, reason they gave. It was water weight that evaporated.

Why when Conservatives go nuts over union corruption do they always give a pass to the most corrupt unions of all?

Based on the article itself, it doesn't appear that there is any suggestion or reason to believe that corruption or illegal activity was happening. Incompetence, on the other hand, seems to be the name of the game in the Boston Police Dept's evidence inventory warehouse.

In this case, 4kilos of coke was simply placed on shelf A and the evidence log said it was on shelf B. When prior audits had shown HUNDREDS of instances of items that were mislabeled, lost, misplaced or tampered with, though, it makes it hard to accept that they're still making these rinky-dink mistakes in such an essential part of the criminal justice process.

"A thorough search of the immediate area resulted in successfully locating the evidence which had been improperly shelved in a nearby location."

And why didn't the same audit find an excess of cocaine in evidence at that nearby location?

Because the cop guns make them think of the penises they secretly want to get reamed by.

Next question.

By Fark standards I'm a raging right wing facist, and i'm more than happy to say that police unions are corrupt wastes of time and money, and that the drug war has been a horrific failure.

You're on Fark, where every cop is a liar, every criminal is a victim, and every journalist is trustworthy, as long as they agree with you.

Kill the criminal, and then freeze 'em. Beat the cops to death with the freezie crooks.

Then burn all the scribblers and hacks.

Happy?

That was at warehouse B and they were inventorying warehouse A. And when warehouse B is short in an audit, it is referred to in reports as warehouse A.....

Was it still the same quality or just a big bag of baking powder?
 
2012-05-08 01:28:59 PM
all drugs should be tested and graded for purity then destroyed withing days of seizure. photographs and lab reports should be all the court needs.

although watching them haul in and count 2372 pounds of weeds was fun. once

Subby: "Four kilos of freshly cut, significantly lower-grade coke reappear in police evidence locker after auditor notices missing drugs"

Fixed.

FYI. There is a relatively new procedure in place around the country to allow people to take their unused prescription meds back to a local police station or sheriff's office every quarter or so. I often wonder how many of those will end up on the streets.

I dunno...maybe the part where TFA says 2000 other drug seizures went missing over a 3-year period. That's twice a day 365 days a year that drugs are walking OUT of the po-po warehouse.

Just a temporary side effect due to an accidental discharge of the Portal Gun.

Adding another link to the chain of evidence where it could be weakened. What if the defense wants to say most of the bags were sugar, and therefore the crime wasn't that of trafficking the total amount. Or perhaps most of it was some inert isomer that might test positive to casual testing that the 'recording' session did, but a more sophisticated test might have discriminated.

Personally I think a option of hiring honest cops could have additional benefits than just avoiding complicating the chain of evidence.

"A thorough search of the immediate area resulted in successfully locating the evidence which had been improperly shelved in a nearby location." what was reported

"A thorough search of the immediate area resulted in successfully replanting the evidence which had been improperly taken to a nearby location." what really happened.

Thank god it wasn't misplaced on the shelf with the evidence for MY trial! "Your honor, k00k is charged with possession of 2 grams of weed, and 4 bricks of coke." Wait what?? That would be a mega bummer dude!
