I was just watching the program "cops" and seen somthing that really made me quite angry at our legal system.
Here is the scene:
They have an undercover sitting outside of an apartment complex ( a black male ) selling fake cocain, crack, whathaveyou.
A person is walking home ( Another black male), minding his oun buisness, and he is approached by the undercover. He did not walk up to the
undercover, the undercover approached him. The undercover then takes out the drugs, puts them in the victims hands ( I use the word victim because
thats what I believe he is), And trys talking him into buying them.
The victim then smells the container, hands the drugs back to the man, and clearly shakes his head no. Once the subject starts to walk away the
poliece rush in tackle the man and handcuff him. I believe this was an unjust arrest because the man clearly did not want the drugs.
I can see how they are going to use the fact that he smelled the drugs agenst him. However, I thought to myelf, if this was me I would of done the
same thing. I smoke weed but have never used any REAL drugs ever in my life. But im a curious fellow and would of most deffinitly checked out what
this guy had, even tho I knew I wasnt going to buy anything. This has to be the worst way of going out and catching a so called "criminal". I would
call it Entrapment but im sure there are those of you that dissagree.
