The negros are hip to how it works. All they have to say is the cops decended like locusts and beat a poor innocent woman just making a living. The press will eat it right up.
Look at her, she has to be guilty of something.
Maybe you shouldn't try and protect the neighborhood drug dealers and you won't get your legs broken.
Came to say this also. I'm sure she gets a cut that's why their "guests"
Fuck that. The kids were suspected of only trespassing, but there's a chance it was drug-related so let's go with that angle for a second.
The reason street-level drug dealing is profitable for hood rats is because it's illegal for legitimate businessmen to compete in the drug market. People can't buy drugs from CVS so they go to a friend or they go to the street. So the cops are part of the reason why street dealing is incentivized. With that in mind, the cops in this case (if it did involve drugs) were trying to deal with a problem they helped create and continue to help create. I have no sympathy for them.
All in the game.
How the fuck is this the cop's fault? They are hired to do a job. Part of that job is to bust people dealing drugs. If they don't, they lose that job. If you don't like the law, get it changed. But stop blaming cops for doing their job.
Fuck this bitch for harboring criminals. I hope her limp is permanent.
Cops don't write the laws. It's their job to enforce em.
Til they make drugs legal ( which by the way won't happen except for maybe pot )
then harboring dealers will always get you in trouble.
A lot of cops actively lobby against drug legalization, especially in places like New York City. There's a lot of power, money, and influence to be lost in doing away with drug prohibition.
Were they even criminals? The prosecutor's office didn't have enough evidence to make simple trespassing charges stick.
If you have a friend who gives a small bit of weed to his buddies for $1 each from time to time, that person is technically a drug dealer. If you're aware of this and aware of the law, then legally, you're harboring a drug dealer every moment you spend not telling the police about it after witnessing it.
Yup, but that's the law. Don't like it? Get it changed.
Until then you're a criminal.
That's what I meant a while back when I said that drug control (and gun control) erodes respect for the law and cops. Not turning in your dumb pothead friend could theoretically make you a federal felon. Common sense and decency wouldn't allow a normal, ethically-minded person that respects individual liberty to obey that law.
Cops still make their own contribution to that erosion in respect. It's true that cops don't have anymore say in the law than you or I, but police unions have a great amount of influence in what the city and state legislatures do with respect to drug control. The cops themselves have a say in how aggressively they enforce vice laws. One thing that cops in NYC like to do is order people that are holding decriminalized amounts of pot (usually during one of those bullshit stop-and-frisk searches) to pull the bag out of their pockets and then arrest them having it in public view. That's not passive enforcement of the drug laws.
