    Yeah, this guy looks like a gangster. Terror of the neighborhood.

    It’s interesting that a ‘gang in Halloween masks’ came by four days earlier demanding drugs, then the police say they were following “other investigations.” Where have I heard of something like this before?

    That’s a very misleading picture of a pot plant they use – the blue flowers belong to a different plant in the foreground and look nothing like cannabis flowers. Are they trying to make it seem like an understandable confusion?

    You’ll notice the police applogised. How often does that happen in the US?

    And Jeff? It’s The Sun. Trying to read any deep meaning into it whatsoever would be a mistake.

    There is always concern when a police force does not use legal resources to support invasion{s} of private property. This smacks of the fascistic approach which believes that they are the masters and the public be damned.
    To guard against such an illegal approach to law enforcement, everyone must insist on prosecution of any offenders AND dismissal from the group responsible for such crimes.

    Hal? The raid was entirely legal.
    The police applogised “despite” this.
