gfid: the_sidewinder: gfid: I'm drunk and stoned, but I read that article twice and didn't see anything about marijuana.  To be fair to the cops, he was wanted for MURDER

FTFA: "DiBartolomeo was one of four people wanted in connection with a marijuana grow robbery that turned deadly"

Dammit, that was the last sentence.  I'm sure I'm not the only one who doesn't read that far into the article.


Don't read too far into the article.  As was explained, it was probably an autotranslate failure that converted his real name into "The Garcia".

OTOH, it'd be one hell of a troll to give all of your children names that are articles in other languages.

Yes with a but:

I personally would be more productive if there were no alcohol. I look forward to a future of even lower weekend productivity when pot is legal. Well perhaps it can't get worse.


I became far more productive at work after I started getting fitshaced on a semi-regular basis.  For some reason it kicked my metabolism into overdrive and I am a productivity MACHINE.  I have redickulous amounts of energy now.

Block up my road for 15 hours, and I will cheer when it's finally over.  Even if they were at the wrong house with no one home and they shot the dog, at least I can either leave or get back to my house.  I'm pretty sure that is the real reason most of them cheered.

I want to hear from the witnesses. Were they cheering the drama and destruction, or the capture of a known asshat?

Gyrfalcon: addy2: TomD9938: doglover: The murder, and subsequently this fiasco would be very easily avoidable if we'd just legalized weed

This guy would have probably been a murderous thief even if weed were 100% legal.

The unfortunate truth. Illegal weed didn't make this dipshiat a murderer.

No no, I'm sure that if only pot was legal, this guy would  never have been a brutal killer whose neighbors are cheering and applauding that the cops had to drag him away kicking and screaming because they're so glad he's out of their neighborhood. If marijuana was legal, this guy would have grown up a perfect citizen with a job and a life.

Just like in the flip side of the argument, if only weed didn't exist, all those pothead slackers would be model citizens with jobs and lives, instead of living in their moms' basements and eating Cheetohs all day long. Guess what: lazy slackers will always be lazy slackers, and murdering scumbags will always be murdering scumbags, regardless of the excuse they pin their personality disorders on.


Not sure why you're missing our point but okay.

Hell, with the location of the house, the Stockton PD likely blocked four roads, cut off access to a park and museum, then detoured traffic onto the busiest 2 lane streets in the area.  That neighborhood looks nice, but go about two miles in any direction from there and the place starts going to Hell fast.  I'm inclined to agree with you - the folks that have jobs in that area were likely trapped in their houses and unable to get to work on Friday morning.  The retirees in the area were stuck in their houses and unable to go about their normal routines.

FatherDale: I want to hear from the witnesses. Were they cheering the drama and destruction, or the capture of a known asshat?


They were likely cheering the removal of a blight on the neighborhood and being able to go back to normal lives.

The_Philosopher_King: Why wasn't there a bunch of militia men coming to his aid after this example of big government harassing a citizen? Now that would have been a stand off.


All hat, no cattle.

doglover: Y'all give criminals too much credit.
 Illegal businesses can't into banking.


Uummm, you know how I know you did not think that one thru? IMHO, banking industry runs bartertown.

Gyrfalcon: doglover: Y'all give criminals too much credit.

All they want is an easy buck. Where's easiest bucks to be had? The black market. Illegal businesses can't into banking.

If, and stop me if I'm going too fast here, you legalize vice; prostitution, drugs, gambling, alcohol; you invite regulation, taxation, and most importantly FINANCIAL SERVICES. When was the last time someone attacked a bee keeper? A farmer? A cheesemonger?

It doesn't happen. What you'll get is everyone keeping their cash in the bank. Credit and debit purchases. Plus good drugs would be legal at the lowest possible price point and with supervision. No one would attack the growers.

Also, don't forget, violent criminals are usually not setting out to be violent criminals. It's just that they're really poor at impulse control. If you just make crime a little bit less convenient, they'll choose law and order out of slothful indulgence. Lighting up black markets is the best way to do that. Look what happened to the alcohol business.

If everything is legal, then there would be no crime?

I don't know if you've run into many actual criminals; they don't choose crime because it's inconvenient or because they lack impulse control. Many are quite well controlled, and often work much harder at not working an honest job than any ordinary person ever worked at making a legal buck. If you ever watched a shoplifting team or a forgery ring, you would abandon the idea that they "just lack impulse control."


A lotta folk go into crime because they have no other opportunities.  Pretty hard to get a job if you're a felon, pretty hard to get a job if you grew up in the projects or the trailer park.

In fact, you legalize drugs and you take away more non-violent economic opportunities for the more ghettoized portions of the population.  The Pharmacos and the Big Banks would roll in, put the locals out of business and force them to find new means of feeding their families.

reported: "That was unusual. In my 30 years in this business, I have never seen that," San Joaquin County spokesperson Deputy Les Garcia said.

Unusual, but the Garcia said that destruction was necessary.

"He was determined. We had received information that he would not give himself up alive," he said.

"The Garcia"? Perhaps the result of some French/Spanish/English auto-translate failure?


No, it's just TV news it's a shiatty Fox affiliate in Sacramento covering crime in Stockton (Sacto's little brother for those of you unfamiliar with the area).

You'd think that by now people (especially the cultured denizens of Fark) would have figured out that news reports from TV stations are designed to be read over the air, so grammar and syntax take a seat in the back and proofreading is nonexistent.

/auto-translate failure? really?

Nah - it's kinda like the majestic plural, or third-person self reference. For instance, "The Garcia is the People's Champ, and is gonna lay the smackdown on your candy azz."
