lohphat: slayer199: When I was a cop, I never went to a domestic dispute where people were stoned...alcohol was always the driving factor.
slayer199: 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.
triptogn: I think many of you stoners are ashamed of what you do. You wouldn't go to such great lengths to hide what you do if you weren't.
stonicus: FloydA: blunttrauma: 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.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...
triptogn: 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.
lohphat: That same tight-assed citizen I'm sure has never exceeded the speed limit either.I bet you he's the same breed of "small government" tea-tard that doesn't want to pay taxes either but expects the police department to staff up and enforce the laws for free.You want more cops to enforce the law? PAY UP BUDDY.Oh and you'd better not drive faster than 65 Mr. Bornwithoutanasshole.
StoPPeRmobile: If people have to die so we can protect just one child, it's all worth it.

jaylectricity: StoPPeRmobile: If people have to die so we can protect just one child, it's all worth it.Our child died in her mother's womb a mere 5 weeks before the due date. Who could we have killed to protect that one child?/yes, I know you're being sarcastic...just using your comment to bring up another issue.
