The guy complaining was a douchebag.

OMG, THINK OF THE CHILDREN!

Instead of whining to the police he could have said, "See what happens when you do drugs...you end up unemployed and hanging out at a park all day."  I made that up, but you get the point.

He's right you know - we don't need more MJ laws, we need to enforce the ones on the books.

I need to know.

I heard the cops talking after he left and they said they would have done something about the folks smoking the weed, but are so sick of people taking video with their phone vertically that they decided to screw with him just to make a point.

Whiner or not, he is right.

We either have rule of law, or we don't, and as dumb as I think pot being illegal is, it is still illegal, and cops standing around ignoring illegal activity that is going on right in front of them ain't right.

Something called discretion.  If the police consider smoking marijuana a minor offense that takes their time away from other pressing needs, it doesn't get enforced.  Do you think everyone that gets pulled over should get a traffic ticket?  In this case, the command officer stated they didn't have the resources to enforce what is a minor violation.

Deciding not to enforce a dumb law during a mass act of harmless civil disobedience is actually beneficial to the rule of law. It demonstrates that laws originate from the people, and that the police are there to prevent problems, not to cause them by mindlessly enforcing the law. Any decent police force understands that you need the cooperation of the citizenry to do your job, and tying up their resources and the courts with a bunch of harmless folks is not the way to encourage that cooperation.

Furthermore, In a crowd of hundreds of people, as soon as the police approached, they could simply drop stuff on the ground. At that point charging individuals with a crime would be difficult. It would tie up the police doing other things.

Finally, early on they pointed out that it was Federal property. Generally the local/state police don't have jurisdiction on Federal property. They would have to call in the DEA, or at least the park rangers.

That said, I wonder how this started. If it was a big pre-planned thing I'm surprised the DEA wasn't there.

I can understand your point, but the cops were pretty clear that they didn't have the manpower or resources available to cite/arrest everyone there.  If they tried to do so, 5 cops against 500 potheads could potentially have made for a far worse situation.  Smoking pot is a misdemeanor in most places, and causes very little harm, whereas rioting, fighting, breaking windows and so forth are far worse violations that cause a lot of damage.  Sometimes, it's wisest to let the little stuff slide in order to avoid creating bigger problems.  The cops did the smart thing.

500 stoners... they probably had at least a million dollars worth of weed on them...

My guess is that it was a 4/20 party, and the DEA weren't there because it simply isn't a big enough problem for them to worry about.  Let the pot heads sit around listening to Phish and playing hacky sack; there are meth labs, cocaine and heroin smugglers to bust, and that's a far better use of DEA agents' time.
 
2013-04-24 12:07:58 PM  
It's heading in that direction in many parts of Michigan now as well.  All the arrests these days seem to be "in possession of weed and...", where the other part is something like running around half naked and peeing on cars or other dumb thing.  It seems like the cops reaction is just "Oh he has weed, well since we're already doing paperwork for the arrest we might as well toss this on there."

I suppose if they got a few paddy wagons, they could have tossed a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos, some Starbursts, and a 2 liter of Mountain Dew into each one, and the kids would have dove right in, making for an easy arrest.

What other pressing needs?  They were standing around watching people smoke pot.

Do you think everyone that gets pulled over should get a traffic ticket?  In this case, the command officer stated they didn't have the resources to enforce what is a minor violation.

Apples and oranges.  If you get pulled over and get a warning, there is still enforcement activity from the police, and while I do tend to fracture the odd speed limit, I certainly expect to get pulled over if I do it in front of a police officer.  In this case, there was no activity by the police at all.    It isn't like they had to respond to the scene, they were already there, spectating.

Also, speeding is in all but the most extreme cases an infraction, which gets me a fine.  A quick search shows that in PA, possession of pot (less than 30g) is a misdemeanor.  I agree it should not be, but that is not my, nor the cop's job to decide.  The people of PA say it is a crime.

When I was 15, I got a job at the local pizza place.  My mentor was a 33 year old guy who had 4 kids with three different woman and loved pot. I had no idea if the pot and the whole loser thing was a case of correlation or causation, but it ensured I never touched the stuff.

Hmm.  I missed the 500 part.  The photo below the video didn't show up the first time I looked, and captain shaky-cam never shot the crowd.  You are right, no way the cops should have done anything.

This aren't "laid back" officers.  They are doing their job-- Protecting the saftey of officers and the local population.  To attempt to intervene would be putting people in notable danger.  This man is asking officers to provoke a dangerous riot.

Dumb PA Laws

"Any motorist driving along a country road at night must stop every mile and send up a rocket signal, wait 10 minutes for the road to be cleared of livestock, and continue. "

Should they enforce this one too?

I think a better example would be a cop seeing a group of 20 cars on the highway all speeding, how does he bust all 20?

When I don't do my job, I'm likely to get reprimanded or fired.  The same should go for these cops.

What message does it send those kids that the police don't enforce the law.  It's just shameful.

Why couldn't these smokers just do this at home, or at a private venue?  I know it's just one day out of the year but I would prefer you slink back into whatever shame hideout you sneak your drug use in and stay there.

I got high on occasion when I was much younger...not my thing.  The last time I got high was 10 years ago.

In any case, the story I told my son when he was old enough to understand was that I was working in a dairy.  There was a guy that was probably 35 and was working there as well (also for minimum age).  Most of us were college kids and this was our summer job.  The guy was in back of the building getting stoned and offered to share (which I declined).  He said, "I've smoked put every day of my life, it won't kill you!"  My thought was that he's 35 years old working a minimum wage job smoking pot every day.

I know guys that are very successful in business that get stoned on occasion...but it's been a long time that I've met someone that gets stoned every day that's successful.

It's going to be legal nationwide in the next 10 years...the revolution has started...people need to get over it.  When I was a cop, I never went to a domestic dispute where people were stoned...alcohol was always the driving factor.

This took place in Philly, and the DA has made it clear they WILL NOT PROSECUTE small possession cases.  These cops could have written a ticket, but that would have been it.  If this country bumpkin can't handle the progressive approach to law enforcement, he should stay the hell out of Philly (and Colorado, Washington, California, etc, etc, etc)
