It is a “known fact” that any money you get from any bank is tainted with drug scent, fact! So how come you don’t take the K-9 in to banks and take their savings? I know it wasn’t found with drugs, right? So if a bag of pot or hard drugs was found in the safe at the bank, and due to the amount of traffic in and out would you take all the money, nope it is a business and not a home, right????
How much pot was found, was it less than 4 ounces, which is “supposedly” a ticket able offence for an adult in the state of Texas? In an article the Sherriff stated he nor his officers lock people up for “”paraphernalia”", really??Is there proof all these things found are his, or is he just automatically guilty? How much did it cost these people to bond out, how much will it or has it cost we the “tax payers” for the up coming court, jail, officers times, vehicles, fuel etc…
What was the total cost to the tax payers for this “big bust”, after all an officer has spent “weeks” building this case, right? How much is acceptable traffic to a teenagers home, who gets to decide the number of people who can visit our homes now? How was this not “profiling”, are you claiming “everybody” that was stopped leaving this house broke the law, or were they just stopped for being at this home? Did they all have their pot “before” they went there or after, better yet how many that were stopped had no pot at all? Was this kid so stupid with all the stops and attention to not know he was going to be the subject of a warrant? How many stops are we talking about, and what was the “probable cause” for these stops?
How many more young people just got “life time” criminal records, there by adding them to the ever growing second class in Wise County? Was the bad guys finger prints on this stolen weapon, is there proof it was his, better yet did he know it was stolen? What kind of “plea agreement” will be forced upon them, with a threat of maximum punishment if they want their day in court?
While I have no problem doing everything “”legally”” we can from keeping young people from making bad choices, the punishment and cost to “”ALL”” should match the crime, should it not? Sadly every time this happens, our young people more and more start turning to legal drugs to avoid being caught, many times becoming addicted or paying with their lives!
While this “kid” may very well deserve some “enlightenment”, it should not be at the cost of the rest of his future, should it?
You can get over an addiction, you never get over a “life time” conviction!
