Judge Napolitano on FOX, PETA, and Columbia Police respond to furor over Missouri SWAT Dog Shooting | The NORML Stash Blog

I am the producer of The NORML Network, the host of the NORML SHOW LIVE and The NORML Stash Blog, and NORML's Outreach Coordinator. I'm married, live in Portland, Oregon, and I am a registered medical marijuana caregiver in this state. I've worked days as an IT geek and nights as a professional musician. Previously, I have been the host of my own political talk radio show on satellite radio. I've been the High Times "Freedom Fighter of the Month" and I travel across the country to educate people on marijuana reform. I've dedicated my life to bringing an end to adult marijuana prohibition and re-legalizing cannabis hemp, and I'm honored to be chosen by NORML to give voice to the Marijuana Nation and to speak for those who can't speak up.

    They should have researched the situation more. Known of the children and pets and used tranquilizers if nessisacry.

    Reminds me of a once I was rushing to get somewhere, doing 140kmph in a 90 zone (big, big fine), when I thought, ‘I’d better slow down; might be a patrol car around.’ Sure enough, around the next bend there was one lying in wait. Fortunately, I’d just slowed down to a bit less than a hundred, so I only got a dirty look and smiled as I thought, ‘You should have seen me half a minute ago!’ I’d love to know what Jonathon Whitworth thought as they took him away. The 800 pound gorilla of irony in the room, being steadfastly ignored, is that he’d probably just had a good run on the last of his stuff and shunted it all out quicker than he’d anticipated – perhaps only minutes before SWAT came a-calling.

    Perhaps they were just annoyed that it had all gone before they’d got their hands on it. This was January, don’t forget – after Christmas. I’ll bet there wasn’t a member of that SWAT team who didn’t have bills or debts which needed paying off. It was criminally inconsiderate of that dealer to cut them out like that. Some people never think of anyone but themselves. It’s hardly surprising they shot his dog. He should just be grateful it wasn’t his wife and/or kid.

    Chief Burton has proposed changes to the department’s Narcotic Search Warrant Service Protocol. View those changes here.

    From the above:

    “Issues such as children being present will be strong evidence that dynamic
    entry should not be considered except under the most extreme circumstance’”

    Very seriously, the first thing they need to do is stop using euphemisms such as ”dynamic entry”.
    At least have the honesty to be straight about what you’re doing. The so-called “dynamic entry” is identical to the ”dynamic entries” used by the SS in Nazi Germany. Identical.

    And “extreme circumstance”… what does that mean? More than an ounce of giggle week in danger of being flushed?

    They are on record as saying they enjoy these raids.Here’s something I found on the Cato iinteractive map:

    Check out Arkansas, July 23, Andrea Baker et. al.

    Quote: “Hey, the bottom line is it’s friggin’ fun, man. That’s the deal. Nobody wants to take burglary reports”.

    Quote: As the homeowners evacuate, police officers chase the family’s 10-month-old pit bull puppy back into the burning house with puffs from a fire extinguisher. The dog perishes in the flames. Police allegedly laugh at Andrea Baker, the dog’s owner, as she cries at their cruelty.

    Puleeeeze!!! The motards that kick in people’s doors while heavily armed and dressed in S & M gear enjoy every second. I’ll never forget the episode of some reality cop show I saw on TV where these aforementioned came out of the residence glowing and sweating like schoolboys after their first lay. All a-tremble and quivering softly, and speaking to one another in hushed voice and with shy smiles and little blushes. Smoking is probably verboten after this type of violation of other’s property and pets, but if they could have, they’d have lit one up and cuddled. Made me feel like a bloody voyeur, for crying out loud.

    Why don’t these maroons carry a frigging net for the dogs? Or is there a secret point system for who makes the pet kil?
