However, because some students speculate that they are snitches, John and Mary have expressed fear for their safety.

Doesn't sound like there's anything speculative about it.

Yes, it was very good, and not just because of low initial expectations. It had quite a few genuinely hysterical parts.

zimbomba63: The Drug War!  Can we just surrender already, and stop all this bullshiat?


It would be nice if it could be so.

But you have to give up something in return.

I think that there can be a reasonable agreement, and I would start at a simple trade: dropping of the drug war for increasing OUI/DWI to catastrophic penalties. Work from there.

OK Chief, to really pull this off convincingly enough to fool our classmates we're going to need Oakenfold, Van Buuren, Fatboy Slim, the Chemical brothers, and about a million watts of bass.  And spring break has to go for two full weeks.

We'll find these dopers in our school system, just leave it to us.

I'm not sure if this happened in anyone else's high school, but in mine they'd clearly give a ~24 hr notice prior to the drug dogs being brought into the school.  Amazingly, all of the drugs disappeared from campus...at least for a short period of time.  They never found anything except for the 'bait' pot the officers would use to keep the doggies interested.

Huh, quite unexpected to see my area pop up on Fark news. Too bad it wasn't another juicy teachersex scandal.

I know schools and cops are stuck in the 50's in Clovis, but that still seems a bit crazy for the CYA attitude you'd expect them all to have.

That is because they got pressure to have a drug raid, but the district, the school board and the PTO didn't want anything to be found and be labeled the drug school.

Umm yeah, the ONLY hits the dog got were on the fake pot?  Riiight... 

I'll one up you.  Our school not only got a week notice in the morning announcements, there was usually a writeup in the local paper that the county was bringing dogs into the school and parents should make their kids aware.

Every single year, the dogs would go bonkers on every stoners locker, I know my books got shredded more than once by those dogs; cars and even school band instruments were clawed and torn up by the dogs. Unless the kids in your school rubbed their lockers, cars, and life down rubbing alcohol followed by bleach, those dogs got plenty of positives.

Do a search, dogs smell scents like we see color.  If you smoke a bowl, wait an hour, touch your car door handle, a dog will positively identify your door handle three days later.

Say what?!? How exactly does that go down?
Dog sniffs instrument case, cop opens case and says "Okay Rover, which part of the instrument should I search?"
Dog sniffs book, cop yawns and watches dog tear through the pages???
WTF kind of training did these yokels have anyway?

Our local high school also enjoys periodic visits from the drug dogs. No drugs found as of yet. Amazing.

Current penalties are pretty catastrophic and have gone way beyond public safety.

What the living hell is a school administrator doing planning and running a drug sting operation in the first frakking place? Fighting actual crime is police work, and he has no more legal right than myself or Mallory Archer to fight the drug scourge. There is a weird notion that school administrators are somehow actual law enforcement. They arent.

cman: increasing OUI/DWI to catastrophic penalties


There's not a lot of evidence that increasing penalties increases deterrence at any reasonable rate -- if drunk drivers were willing and able to think through the situation ahead of time they mostly wouldn't drive drunk in the first place. Generally speaking increased penalties only work when someone is making a rational economic choice, and that's frequently not the case with OUI/DWI cases (though it would work with say, banking regulation, where penalty * probability of detection < profit directly drives decisions).

Also note that increased penalties themselves have lots of costs: from the direct costs of incarceration to reduced household and national economic output to negative social outcomes for convicts and other people in their lives.

I'm not saying we shouldn't punish people, I'm just saying we shouldn't punish ourselves in the process, and suggesting that maybe punishment isn't the only tool available for chaining behavior.

It is pretty common and more disgusting than you think.

The cops go to people arrested for having a couple joints and promise to reduce or drop charges if they act as an informant for drug dealers.  The program was started to catch the big time dealers.  Naturally it's being used to go after kids at school now.  Also, there is no oversight so there are abuses.  The cops do things like after the informant frames one guy they come back and have them to another then another.  Also, they'll use people busted for small time possession, say some prescription drugs stolen from their the kid's parent's medicine, to act as decoys for big time drug dealers or unrelated crimes like gun dealers.  Because we all know we all drugs are equally bad and illegal and all illegal activity is the same.  The sting operation often goes awry and the informant is left out to fend for themselves.

Citation Please!
Of course!  Here's the wonderful article where I got my information.  It is a worthwhile read.
