A Florida sheriff has highlighted the arrest of a local politician on drug charges with a statement that appears to reference the scandal involving embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.
The Bradford County Sheriff’s drug unit recently obtained an arrest warrant for the mayor of Hampton, Fla. Police allege that an investigation has revealed that the accused "obtained and then sold some Oxycodone."
Barry Layne Moore, 51, faces charges of selling a Schedule I or II drug, as well as possession of a Schedule I or II drug.
Following the arrest, the Bradford County Sheriff’s Office posted a statement to its official Facebook page. "This isn’t Toronto," Smith said in the statement. "We will not tolerate illegal drug activity, in my jurisdiction, by anyone to include our elected officials."
So why hasnt the Mayor of Toronto been arrested and charged? If an average citizen were to use illegal narcotics, wouldnt they be arrested?
This is pissing me off. I'm actually dialing the Toronto Office of the Chief as I write this and am going to ask why they haven't arrested this bum.

Look at all the people who have been arresting after posting a video or blogging about doing something illegal online. Some are for very petty crimes.
In my opinion the only crimes that should be prosecuted after the fact are violent crimes.
