you're making things up.  that's not what happened.  I know a guy who's dating a girl that has a step-sister who's dating another guy on the police force.  An unnamed source approached the officer earlier in the day and said they were dealing drugs out of the apartment and had uzis and at least 3 assault rifles in the apartment.  the office approached the apartment, not waiting for backup for fear another little kid may fall victim to a drug deal.  she saw several gang-bangers run from the apartment as she approached with M13 tattoos carrying what appeared to be a large cache of weapons.  The officer bravely entered the apartment and was forced to defend herself.  As she performed CPR, the gang came back and removed the remaining weapons and drugs (but somehow missed the small bag of pot).  she wanted to stop them, but knew his life was in the balance so couldn't stop CPR.  She's the victim here.  she was forced to hurt this young man who was under the influence of a band of Mexican animals.  Now you want to ruin her career for keeping everyone else safe?  have you no shame?

Paranoia is deep in this thread. I'm the first to acknowledge that the cops and DAs can't necessarily be trusted, but so far none of the known facts has tripped the alarm bells for me. The items seized are consistent with an investigation into what happened and what may have led up to it. Let's see where this goes. With the level of scrutiny this is getting, a cover-up, if one is contemplated, won't be easy.

Manslaughter basically exists for situations of "somebody died because I'm a moron."

The Texas statute puts basic death by moron falls under negligent homicide. Manslaughter is a step up to reckless dickhole fatalities. Then murder is what we have here, where a shooter tries to shoot a shootee who does in fact get shootified. Capital murder is that, plus some aggravating circumstance like being an absolute farkstick.

The thin blue line runs through the center of "darkness" which "represents the evil in this world." But the line also "stands between good and evil."
So, which one of those dark blocks is supposed to be the good one? Or is this actually revealing that they see everyone who isn't a cop as evil, citizen and criminal alike?

bobug: Almea Tarrant: bobug: First she said she unlocked the door, then entered, found him, felt threatened. Then she said she found the door open, and went in hot. Neither of those makes any farking sense, or can be confused for the other. If she's a trained cop, shouldn't she have immediately called dispatch for backup, holding the perpetrator at bay, as long as there was no direct threat? If the door was open, she should have stopped and called in immediately. Only an idiot would enter an open home, without backup, if they are in a job where retaliation may be an issue.

Actually at the very first she said that she couldn't get her key to work (because it was the wrong door) so she put down stuff she was holding to unlock the door. Then he opened the door, in his underwear, startling her into shooting him dead.

I'm guessing that story changed when neighbors pointed out that he had a bright red welcome mat (no other tenant had on) that would have been impossible to miss had she actually put anything down.

That sounds REALLY fishy. Unless she was drunk / impaired. If my key doesn't work in my farking lock, I'd CHECK I WAS AT THE RIGHT APARTMENT. I've done that with hotel rooms before, but have managed NOT to shoot anyone.


I once attempted to unlock a neighbor's door.

I had been living at the complex for less than a week. When my key failed to open the lock I first re-checked the door that I was attempting to access. Upon realizing that I was at the wrong door, I abandoned my effort.

Somehow, despite carrying a concealed weapon on my person at the time, I did not even consider making an attempt to force my way inside and draw my firearm. Clearly I lack the training and aptitude to be a police officer.

I don't see any indication that investigators are looking at the pot as some type of justification for the killing, or trying to sully anyone's name after death.
Transparency of the investigation is being demanded, and the media are reporting what was pulled from the crime scene during the investigation. There are any number of ways shoes, drugs, cat litter, or a salad spoon on a homicide scene could be determined useful to an investigation... useful to the prosecution or defense. One of the drawbacks of immediate "transparency" before an investigation is complete - ignorant people run with speculation & assumptions, shut out details that go against what they want to believe, and get very emotionally invested in their one-dimensional ignorance.
Where is anybody seeing the victim being somehow *blamed* in wrong-doing for having a bag of weed on his table, or that it's being used to justify entering his apartment or his death? That's a total strawman. They haven't even indicated that it's his weed, or that it is illegally purchased, or anything. It was pulled from a homicide scene.

[420magazine.com image 344x193]

links136: So over $100 worth of weed a day?

Maybe for a college freshman or high school kid who doesn't know how to acquire quality weed at a good price.


links136: There's no way someone could smoke a 3 gram joint of really dense high quality weed and still function, that has to be lower quality stuff.

Organically grown, 1.5 weeks over "harvest time," hand manicured, dried for 2 weeks and cured for a month in jars.  Beautiful snowy white crystals and with a hint of dark read hairs. Yeah, it's some low rent nasty ass weed, only about 19% THC / 2% CBD; I did do a little higher THC with AK-47 but got less per plant yield.

...but go one and tell me how little weed it takes to manage your twisted spine, Tommy Chong. If It takes 1/4 a day or a farking ounce a day IDGAF; as long as I'm not having back seizures that throw me down stairs.  Two this morning, rolling one after this post and then two before bed.  So yes, 5.  Surprising for "not being able to do anything" between two computers I've edited and rendered 3 videos for publication today, run 3 errands, and started the laundry, but tell me again how I'm function-less.

Thankfully I don't smoke with people who can't hang with me, so you're safe.

I would think 0.3 oz is like 1 thing you smoke. Depending on the cigar paper, I've seen up to 7g blunts before.
I try to keep my rolled joints to between 2-3 grams and most my friends think they're a bit excessive. 

The answer is, "how big do you want it and how much weed do you have to contribute?" 

Prevailing Wind: Half and ounce is "almost out"? 😳


3g joints, 5 joints a day; yep that's all but out.

Potheads doing math makes me laugh

As the pothead you are laughing at explained. having a 1/2 oz of weed is almost out for them. They then show you that they smoke 3 gram joints 5 times a day. So that would b 3x5 which last I checked was 15. So As you are laughing the pothead was correct. that if they smoke 15 grams per day and they only have 14grams (which is a 1/2oz) then they would be almost out.

but yeah funny hahahaha

one thing you probably never want to do is question pot smokers when it comes to pot math.


......3 gram joints?  So over $100 worth of weed a day?  I mean sure if its really cheap there, but that sounds a little extreme.  A half ounce can last me a couple weeks smoking every day, thats ALOT of weed.  I mean if your smoking that much, what the f*** are you doing all damn day.  I mean you get some of that crazy crazy dense dispensary stuff and it's like 1 or 2 bowls and your just passed out it's so strong.

What kind of weak ass shiat are you guys smoking down there?!?!?!?  Maybe Winnipeg just gets a little bit of all the best thanks to being the meeting point for the east and west coast here in Canada.  All I know is cops have the best coke and weed, once you've tried cocaine from the dude who pays the cop off, you don't even wanna try what most people do because that's clearly not really cocaine, more like acid baking soda.

There's no way someone could smoke a 3 gram joint of really dense high quality weed and still function, that has to be lower quality stuff.  That looks like the amount a normal smoker would buy to last a few weeks or even a month depending on how often they smoke.  What I do is wrap it in a bag, then put a cup over it and say a can of pepsi or something over the cup, no air really gets in, so it stays fresher longer.

I did that because I first did that with a cinnamon bun then forgot it after a week, when I realized it was there, I also realized it was still just as soft and didn't lose any moister despite being there for a week, threw it out anyways but clearly that helped stop oxygen from getting in.  Therefore the weed I get doesn't crumble into dust after a week or 2.  Maybe make 2 main bags, the long term sealed bag and then a short term sealed bag with a little bit a weed so when you want to grind it or smoke it, you take out of the short term bag, then just add bit by bit so the long term bag barely gets opened at all.

15 grams a day?  wtf

Naive journalist writes about eating too many brownies? OMG TELL YOUR CHILDREN REEFER MADNESS IS UPON US!


Have never trivialized or dismissed the idea that we need more education/outreach about abusing alcohol.  Alcohol is a drug and should be included in any drug education curriculum, for starters.  It is true that I don't preach about alcohol on Fark, but that's because I assume that most of us are adults here and that as such we're all aware about things like cirrhosis of the liver and the thousands of alcohol-related deaths on the roads every year.

When you can show me that legalizing weed at retail reduces the societal problems that are caused by alcohol, I'll think about supporting legalization.  As of now, however, all I can see is that when you legalize weed, you put commerce in yet another unhealthful substance under the protection of the police, this in addition to alcohol and tobacco among others.  I don't think that's sound policy from the perspective of either public health or quality of life.

My comment was simply that, in the aftermath of Trayvon's murder, right wing dirtbags endlessly harped on about the possibility that Trayvon was going to use Skittles in some drug cocktail. As if that would be relevant even if it was true. Let alone that whole "predicting future actions" aspect.

Somebody was killed in their own home. If the intruder was not a cop this would simply be a home invasion / murder. The idea that anyone can go into another persons home, execute them and then say "My bad. I thought this was my place." is revolting.

Hell, if this was a black cop and a white home owner the right wing nutbags would be screaming for the cop's head.

That's too bad.  But I'm sure that the number of people killed as a result of alcohol could be reduced by some good drug alcohol education in the schools plus some outreach to abusers.

A man was killed etc


A man died because an off duty cop appears to have committed a criminal homicide that had nothing whatsoever to do with weed, and someone here decided to use that apparent crime as a vehicle to argue for legal weed at retail because the deceased is alleged to have possessed a small amount of the stuff.  I may vomit.

Uh yeah.  2.5 - 3 is my average roll.

Here's what one might look like from around the webz.

links136: So over $100 worth of weed a day?


Maybe for a college freshman or high school kid who doesn't know how to acquire quality weed at a good price.


links136: There's no way someone could smoke a 3 gram joint of really dense high quality weed and still function, that has to be lower quality stuff.


Organically grown, 1.5 weeks over "harvest time," hand manicured, dried for 2 weeks and cured for a month in jars.  Beautiful snowy white crystals and with a hint of dark read hairs. Yeah, it's some low rent nasty ass weed, only about 19% THC / 2% CBD; I did do a little higher THC with AK-47 but got less per plant yield.

...but go one and tell me how little weed it takes to manage your twisted spine, Tommy Chong. If It takes 1/4 a day or a farking ounce a day IDGAF; as long as I'm not having back seizures that throw me down stairs.  Two this morning, rolling one after this post and then two before bed.  So yes, 5.  Surprising for "not being able to do anything" between two computers I've edited and rendered 3 videos for publication today, run 3 errands, and started the laundry, but tell me again how I'm function-less.

Thankfully I don't smoke with people who can't hang with me, so you're safe.

It's amazing that he has so little shame that he can bring his vicious nonsense into a tragedy in which an innocent man was murdered.  The drug war, which he supports, is the actual cause of our current situation... police killings as well as many other outrages committed by cops, almost always have something to do with the drug war.  The demise of the 4th Amendment and the militarization of civilian police is directly due to the drug war.

Cannabevets apparently has no idea that his beliefs are killing people, or else he just doesn't give a shiat..  I tried to point this out to him many years ago, for years and years, and he was so obdurate in his brutal beliefs that I concluded that he was working for the cartels.  After all, were drugs to be dealt with rationally, the billions would stop flowing out of the country and into the pockets of monstrous criminals.

stir22: W_Scarlet: Gee, I seem to be saying this a lot lately; stories like this are why I can't muster up any righteous indignation when someone blows away a cop. I'm not saying it's right. I'm certainly not saying to do it. I'm just saying if you want the public to stand up for you, stand up for the public, even if that means standing up against one of your own.

The woman is a murderer. I don't care if they found half of Mexico in his apartment. She forced her way in and killed a man without cause. Then tried to lie about the circumstances surrounding it. It's murder. Plain and simple.

Same here.  I'm surprised that groups of people haven't declared it open season on cops.  Sure, you get a cop murder here and there, but if they don't stop killing people of color for zero reason, it's just a matter of time until a group of them band together, create an incident where a bunch of police are in one spot and have a turkey shoot.

That said, I think she'll plead.  No way they let her off, Dallas would burn.  I follow a lot of Dallasites on twitter, and they're smouldering.  Not charging her, or a "not guilty" verdict would be lighting a powder keg. The place would erupt, and rightfully so.

This guy had it all; young, good-looking, charismatic (by all accounts), educated, great job, great family...and to have it taken away in this fashion is so far beyond reprehensible that it is difficult to describe.


Are those Dallasites asking other questions, like, "Why is an exhausted officer allowed to take a service weapon home?"

Hopefully Jean's family starts asking those questions of the DPD. I don't care who you are, you don't make good decisions after 15-hour shifts of a very high-stress and sometimes dangerous job. If you want to carry your own piece off-hours, that's on you, but assuming there were no malicious details we haven't heard of yet, if she doesn't have her service pistol, Botham Jean is still alive, and her life isn't ruined.

CivicMindedFive: I know this may be hard for some here, but imagine the police were 100% investigating this in good faith.  You would expect them to take exactly what they took out of his apartment to further the investigation.  Verify the police backpack is hers and is in a location where she would have dropped it during the shooting.  Take his PC to look for evidence of a relationship (as she would possibly be able to scrub that information on her PC).  Take the shell casings.  Take the medical kit as evidence that she tried to give medical assistance.  If the MJ is in plain sight, it's a non factor in the case, but they can't just leave something illegal so they have to confiscate it.


If it was in plain sight, then they could have confiscated it without needing a warrant. So why did the search warrant for his apartment need to include 'narcotics'?

3g joints, 5 joints a day; yep that's all but out.

Potheads doing math makes me laugh


As the pothead you are laughing at explained. having a 1/2 oz of weed is almost out for them. They then show you that they smoke 3 gram joints 5 times a day. So that would b 3x5 which last I checked was 15. So As you are laughing the pothead was correct. that if they smoke 15 grams per day and they only have 14grams (which is a 1/2oz) then they would be almost out.

but yeah funny hahahaha

Are we even in agreement that the investigation is ongoing? I understand it's frustrating for people who feel entitled to skip the investigation and have their assumptions validated. Yes the media obtained a list of items removed while investigating the homicide scene. I agree that the media will select which information to direct your attention to in order to fit their agenda (I see FoxNews decided it necessary to highlight that particular tidbit, predictably).

I didn't say the media click-outrage profit machine didn't have an agenda; I said I didn't see indication the investigators are assigning any significance to the pot yet or in what way. Because they haven't. The investigation is ongoing. We don't even know who's weed it is or how it's relevant to the case. Where have you heard how the pot is relevant to the investigation yet? Seems to be only a lot of speculation & assumptions at this point that is making shallow people emotional.

Transparency of the investigation is being demanded, and the media are reporting what was pulled from the crime scene during the investigation.

What did the investigators find in the killer's apartment?

If they didn't search it, that fact should be made transparent, right? If they did search it, everything found there should be made transparent, right?

But that hasn't happened. Instead there's a one-sided release of information to make the victim look bad. And you're saying you don't see that.


I don't know anything about your rhetorical questions other than the investigation is still ongoing. You're reasonable for having these questions. Is there something I wrote that you actually disagree with? I don't see how you are responding to anything I said.
