that really is making a case for "us verses them"...4 pounds and they turn a blind eye.....what a bunch of crooks all of em
This is a problem. A big one. If you can generalize and make all cops bad because of a few bad ones, then why do you complain when the cops do it back?
Somebody needs to grow a brain and stop the cycle. Life isn't one big stereotype.

well if he was gonna steel it, he didn't think it through very well.
and i notice you didn't bother to post this.
from the op's source,
The incident happened on November 25, 2013, when Avila picked up a box containing the marijuana from a UPS store. He radioed a dispatcher to say he would file an incident report, but that never happened and the marijuana never found its way into the department evidence locker, a violation of police policy.

Only difference is that those "lazy people" had disciplinary,or repercussions..That Pot PIG got a free pass for his "laziness"....
The Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office, which has been investigating the case, said it is not inclined to file charges. The county’s chief public defender, Robin Lipetzky, told The Contra Costa Times the evidence is not strong enough to produce a conviction.
The Contra Costa District Attorney's Office remained tight-lipped Wednesday regarding a criminal investigation into a veteran Richmond K-9 police officer who is accused of having stored marijuana at his home.
Officer Joe Avila has been on paid administrative leave from the Richmond Police Department since September, when a search warrant was served at his house. The District Attorney's Office has not indicated whether charges will be filed, but police sources and Contra Costa County public defender Robin Lipetzky have indicated that it's unlikely that Avila will face charges.
Contra Costa DA mum on whether Richmond officer found with pot will face charges
Deputy District Attorney Barry Grove would not comment when asked if his office plans to file charges against Avila. He did point to previous prosecutions of officers by his office as indicative that it is not reluctant to press charges against police.[/color]
