I hope they were no knock warrants.

Oh, just fill them out when you are done.

if you want to make the system faster then start putting a bullet directly into the criminal's head as the way of declaring them guilty.

Ooooo! Did somebody write in Barrack Hussein Obama or Mitt Romney?

It could happen.

It would scare the Bejebus out of Mitt Romney. He'd think they'd found out what he definitely isn't trying hard to hide about Bain Capital, taxation and a certain Mormon Presdential Candidate.

What scares me is that I remember how stupid I was in high school when i did crap like this. I'd like to think that our justice system is smarter than I was when I was sixteen.

Sadly, I know better.

Mugato: Do judges ever actually deny a warrant?


Not in GA. The cops explaining why is simply pro forma around here. I was a witness for a friend of mine who caught a drug charge, thanks to cops illegally entering his home - the cops claimed the door was open and they just walked in. During the hearing over a motion to suppress, ten of us showed up to testify that the door was not open and that the police were repeatedly told to get a warrant or leave. They barged in when one girl panicked and tried to leave.

About halfway through, the judge started trimming his fingernails and reading papers on his bench, not even paying attention. Motion denied. There is no justice in this state.

And yeah, we were doing drugs, smoking that evil demon weed. We had two 1/4 bags between all of us. Cops ended up with over a dozen bags in evidence, claiming he was dealing, yet each baggie had a different amount and was a different kind of weed. His lawyer told him to just cop a plea and move on.

Court is nothing more than farking theater in GA.

Thanks General Sherman, for taking a half-measure.

What, did they elect some judges from old Law and Order episodes?

Claire Kincaid: Your Honor, we would like to search this man's house for evidence related to the Thompson murder.
Judge at dinner double-fisting Jack and Cokes: What evidence do you have?
Claire: Detectives Briscoe and Curtis left him alone in a 95 degree interrogation room for 9 hours, then took turns whipping him with a wire coat hanger and got the suspect to admit that he'd once seen a gun in person.
Judge: OK, but you tell McCoy he better be right on this.

Harassing the innocent is even better than convicting the guilty.

Well, see, obviously all of you were guilty. You were, after all BREAKING THE LAW, so after that, petty details of who was smoking what and which weed was in what baggies is totally irrelevant. You admit you were BREAKING THE LAW, right? RIGHT?!?

Just be glad they didn't opt for summary execution you FILTHY DOPE SMOKING CRIMINAL!

Yes, because they know that if it's a bad warrant a good lawyer can argue it on a higher level and get it thrown out. Having that happen can be pretty damaging to your reputation.

Well, the innocent are only innocent because they haven't been convicted yet. So it's really just harassing the pre-guilty. Proactive justice if you will.

They had no warrant. No probable cause. Just because she tried to leave doesn't mean they automatically get to enter the house. But it doesn't matter what the Law says, these assholes in GA do what they want to prop up their pathetic little hillbilly counties with Justice and Corrections money, it's about the only industry in that county. Cops admitted in court that they were there over a noise complaint, which was bullshiat, and we told them through the door that we would keep it down (even though the closest neighbor was a half mile away). The owner of the house wasn't even there. They had been after my buddy's father for years, typical small GA county bullshiat.

And they didn't charge anybody except the son of the guy they had been after for making noise about crooked county road contracts. Go figure.

Ooh, what's my prize?

Hey, maybe the police were indeed after the huge windfall of cash from that epic pot bust, after salaries and other expenses are paid they'd probably have enough left over to buy some new pencils or something. Definitely a motivating factor in an illegal bust motivated by the father of some random kid who doesn't like a local project etc.

/it just didn't sound very realistic to me
//war on drugs is dumb
///even dumber is all farkers thinking that the sole motivation for leo's is some huge windfall of cash for everything from a tag light out to a tiny bag of weed to a dui.
////on fark, all teachers fark their students and all cops are corrupt...
