The video is 24 minutes long, it tells the story of an undercover "sting" (entrapment) that targets loners & one Jesse Snodgrass who just happens to be autistic at a local high school.

We'll get back to the fact later, how you have to be the biggest POS on the planet to TARGET an autistic kid in the first place. what makes this even more outrageous is that a judge said the school where Jesse attended wasn't even liable!

Judge rules school district not liable in arrest of special ed student in drug sting



Now a Riverside County Superior Court judge has dismissed the lawsuit at the center of the controversy around Operation Glasshouse. The 2013 suit was brought by Jesse Snodgrass, who was a 17-year-old Chaparral High School senior with autism when he was arrested as part of the sting. The suit alleged that the Temecula Valley Unified School District had breached its mandatory duties by allowing a deputy from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department to manipulate Snodgrass – a friendless student who had bipolar disorder, trouble keeping up with conversations and a history of being bullied – as part of an undercover drug sting




But in a ruling filed with the court on Nov. 10, Judge Raquel A. Marquez found the district not liable for damages, stating that district officials had not worked with the sheriff’s department to deliberately target Snodgrass. In addition, Marquez ruled, district officials had immunity from liability for two reasons: because they were cooperating with police and because California Government Code 820.2 protects public employees who are making routine policy decisions.


So, not only does the cops get immunity, but the school does too. # the fact that Jesse is "special needs". # the fact that the school gets extra money from the Feds bc he is a special needs student. (And is probably on some kind of SSI to boot bc of his disability) None of that matters, cause # you.

I have two special needs boys myself, if it sounds like I am taking this personal, its because I am.

Luckily the kid only got 6 months probation.

There are certain lines in my own code. You don't screw with disabled ppl, they're off-limits. If I see you pissing with someone handicapped, we're gonna have a GD problem. The fact that morality or human decency doesn't mean JACK # to these f-ing psychos more than rubs me raw, it feels me with a hot rage.

I can't understand ppl's nonchalant attitude about suing. If you # with my family, like this, there WILL be a reckoning.

Nobody will be fired, more than likely promoted. If this passes as acceptable behavior, than I say bring the comet or meteor and wipe us out already & start over, this is NOT acceptable!

I agree. With your argument, your sentiment and your passion.

Exactly....

I honestly believe the time has come to start shunning cops socially.

IDGAF if you're one of the "good guys". You know "bad guys", yet you can't/won't do anything bc of fear of retaliation in your own dept. That makes you a coward, not a hero.

I read elsewhere, from cops no less, that MOST of the stress of the job doesn't come from dealing with "thugs & criminals" or thinking they won't make it home "to their families" (officer safety horsecrap) but SURPRISE! comes from the stress of dealing with their own dept/administration & the messed up things they see/hear/watch what goes on.

I don't have a record. I have had non-moving violation tickets, (seat belts, forgotten registration for my plates, one for my DL expired, etc) and nothing else. Have never gotten arrested, never even been detained on a curb. This is not due to me having a "hate-on" for cops. But when you INTENTIONALLY TARGET the weakest of us, like in this article, or ppl out of town for crash grabs, or shooting dogs for the hell of it,etc etc, then you are no longer a member of the human race & should be treated as such, pariah.

And to those enabling these kind of ppl & supporting them, to hell with you too!

So a kid with no social skills who found a way perhaps to engage with others in a god damn BUYER DEMAND scenario, is now going to be put into a system where not only will he be punished far worse than those who warrant incarceration, but will come out worse.

Well done cops, well done law. you make my skin crawl and I wish there was an army I could join to fight against this #ing tyranny.

No, he got 6 months probation, (thank god) but couldn't graduate with his class.

Other kids not so lucky. Expelled. Zero tolerance=no pell grants, harder to get work cause its on their record, etc. And the "news" that nite (they showed it in the video) made it sound like some kind of drug ring was busted. These weren't kids slinging dope, these were just dumb kids is all.

#ing pathetic.

Not a huge difference, but still there is some.

Remove the chances, involve the consequences.

One day weed will be so legal people will think of it a tea, and laugh at the crap we suffer now for it.

I hate now.

Saw this before, it's horrifically sad that anybody.. let alone a cop would do something this spiteful.

shadenfreude is absolutely right, the community these cops live in needs to shun them. Businesses need to turn them away and let them know they no longer have any faith in their ability to do their job.

Whilst I hate this type of bullying - what gives an Autistic or BiPolar a free pass. They know maths and profit and loss to transact in drugs but poor poor man. "He's above the law". I thought those days where over - you cant have integration and then plead special circumstances.

I'd suggest you read the Rolling Stones article from the OP before making such blanket statements, especially in the case that is the subject of this thread.

What evidence do you have that people who are mentally ill get some kind of free pass?

One thing you and other misinformed people should understand is that people who suffer from these types of mental illnesses don't process human interaction the way you do. Heavy medication and the voodoo of psychology are not the panacea that some believe them to be.

So, what do you propose to do with people like me and others that have an extremely difficult time functioning effectively in human society?

Thanks for starting the thread. It's important to let people know that such atrocities still occur. I hope that a couple of our resident LEOs chime in on this. I'd like to get their perspective.

But, I'm with you. I have to leave this thread for a while. In fact, I have several other threads queued up to read, but I need to take a break from everything for couple of hours.

Exactly why the state won't legalize marijuana. There's too much to "lose" in if they go forth with it. In this case, picking on a disabled person, is a new low for them.

I just laugh at the cops here in the U.K


And say to them / what is the worst you can do to me , put me in a room and give me 3 meals a day

Then explain to them that their wages do not even cover the cost to lock me up for a harmless bit of weed then add caught any rapists /murderers etc today chief




And if that does not work say to the judge as you casually leaf through the front of the bible on the stand

Where does it say THOUGH shall not smoke weed

I left my glasses at home your honor

it was for cooking guv

No, the establishment there won't allow it to be legalized where it won't affect people in this manner.

You are so far off the mark buddy...wake up ffs......the kid had a problem making mates, the cop posed as a student and pretended to be his friend and then asked him to find him pot and gave him money to do so....the kid being desperate to keep his mate found him some dope and then was arrested....thats rubbish,its entrapment....the cop is loser and has no moral compass and if you think this is reasonable behaviour for cops your moral compass is broken too

There is.

We're currently looking for volunteers, including non combatants, specifically communication systems specialists because publishing gathering details has had deadly consequences.
The kind of creature who entraps autistic high school kids for weed also poses as anti-self.

No probation for us, and thank heavens because I hate having to talk to these people.

I say volunteers in a non-employed capacity, to those who need remunerations arrangements can always be made in weed or public servant forfeiture.

The people we all revere aren't scaredycats even though it's comfortable to be a scaredycat, till it boils down to working to pay the salaries of people who entrap autistic high school kids for weed.

Cheerio

There are varying degrees of autism.

Did this kid know selling pot is illegal?

Autism is not an excuse to break laws IMO.
