We are not authorized to trade jail time for helping us, only the PA can authorize that, and since they are the ultimate authority when it comes to
prosecution and plea bargains, thats in their court not ours.
Secondly, we arent the ones forcing people to do drugs - Thats their personal choice and until drugs (or some drugs) become legal to possess and use,
its agsint the law, regardless of personal opinions. If you dont like it, or others for that matter, do what some other citiy / state residents have
done - get off your butts, put together legislation, get it on the ballott, and vote.
Its not up to the PA to accept a plea deal in these cases, its up to the person who is charged with the crime. In this case the female agreed to
cooperate with law enforcement, and in the process decided to ignore the game plan and get in a car with 2 strangers.
This is not the fault of the police or the city, and the family should not be able to sue at all.
As far as knowing the dangers and not caring about informants, again you are wrong. We are responsible for the people in situations like this. Hence
the game plan and specifric instructions on where she must be and to not deviate from that plan. The moment she left the parameters, she sealed her
Until all the info comes out, some things to think about -
* - What if she asked the 2 people to get her out of there?
* - What if she told the 2 guys she was an informant and wanted help getting out of there in exchange for telling them they were being set up.
* - What if they knew she was an informant based on her open mouth and facebook / friends / anyone within earshot? Just because she didnt know them
doesnt mean they didnt know her. I ahve had people deny they knew someone, only to find out they did know the person and had in fact bought drugs off
of them / same source before.
Controlled buys are controlled for a reason. Im not going to go into detail but had she stuck with the plan, she would most likely still be
