A Dearborn, MI police officer (ironically, a K9 handler), now retired, is in the news today for “bogarting” someone’s “stash”:
Dearborn police declined to pursue criminal charges against an officer last year, even after the cop admitted to taking marijuana from criminal suspects and, with his wife, cooking it up in brownies.
Apparently, he made some hash brownies, and “freaked out,” calling 911. I heard the 911 tape on the way in to work this AM, and it was absolutely batshit crazy. “We made brownies and I think we’re dead, I really do…” He continued to ask the operator if she knew the score of the Red Wings game, because he thought he was dreaming. As an added touch, the officer initially threw his wife under the bus, claiming he was duped. Subsequent investigation revealed that he had used confiscated marijuana to “bake” the brownies himself.
And he’s allowed to retire with benefits – not even a slap on the wrist.
I’m all in favor of his right to eat cake, errr, pot-brownies; I really, truly am. But that doesn’t mean he’s not a douchebag of the highest order. How many people were punished as a result of this turd’s psychological projection? How many people lost their jobs, their licenses, their kids, or their scholarships?
Some classes of people are still above the law. Pity the rest of us.
