HAPPY SATRDAY & GOOD AFTERNOON TO: "RJ"..."RIP"..& "RICK"......

It's 1:00pm est...8/27th.....I agree w/ all responses....however "RICK"...I am not referring to the Bill of Rights...and I apologize for having said "states Rights".....I am referring to a particular section of legal codes....I'll get that info later, however "RJ" and "RIP" perhaps I'm writting too fast, hhehheehee, I didn't mean that "race" itself,  was a factor in determining how Police handle situations where they enter a private home or establishment, and search for Drugs, I mean that In most Counties in Maryland, the police are very sensitive to respect the Laws(all of them) while going thru and searching for Drug Parapenalia, so as not to destroy anything,  because if they don't find the Drugs, they are indeed held responsible for any and all damages to the property.

In fact......when they come into the Neighborhood of someone they know dispenses drugs, they will question the Neighbors about the dealer, without entering your home, and when they speak with the persons who live in the home of the dealer, they will not force their way in, even though the dealer may be inside.  They agressively speak outside the home of the dealer, because without films or photos of the dealer exchangng Drug Paraphanlia they have no case.

    Hi libra.  Thanks for the astute observations.

    I have some difficulties discussing these issues.  I'm still dealing with a lot of anger about a dead friend, and while I'm usually fairly good at anger management, I haven't yet gotten over the hump on this.

    I've carried my thoughts and rationale about all this to a blog entry.  I don't believe I'll be saying anything more about it on this thread. 

    I appreciate the observations you've made.  Same with those everyone else has made, though I disagree with many of them.

      Just because he was a Drug dealer they still shouldn't have taken his money,there are plenty of people in our own government that are corrupt and get away with stuff.People make a living how they see fit whether it's legal or Illegal you shouldn't dictate how a person should live we all have too eat and have a roof over our head and not all of us are capable of or desire too work like the average american.He won  the money fair and square so they just should have arrested him for whatever he did wrong and left his money alone.

          i see that there are few incentives for dealers to quit dealing drugs, i also think drugs are not good for the health of this nation, so what are law enforcers to do?

          i think make the penalties as harsh as possible and to help pay for the law enforcement, confiscation is great.

          i also think it could be used on a broader basis maybe for theft and other property crimes.

          the odds do not mean much to those who win the jackpot

              US FlagHAPPY LABOR DAY WEEKEND ....TO ALL MY FELLOW HAPPY MM GAMBLERS....3:00PM EST

              SEPTEMBER 2ND.....SATURDAY AFTERNOON......

              "SAGAN"....I do concurr with you to a degree, but playing the "Devil's Advocate" what happens if the day should come that "dealing Drugs" in the United States is made legal.....remember once upon a time, "Alcohol" was considered a "Drug" in some courters still is, but because of the extremely lucrative "underground" trade on Alocohol, the US decided to make it legal to engage in the "Supply and Demand"  once they agreed on the "taxation" of the beverage, and the realization that the Federal Government was missing out on the "Gross Profit" be made in the "underground"

              What happens if any of our Drug trade becomes Legal......look at the Argument over "Marijuana"??You have some great points, in your Blog....but "Alcohol" is not good for the Nation either.....

                When you legalize all the drugs, all the alchohal, and all the prostitution, take a snap shot of America from a space craft. It'll go down in history as what America used to look like. Before you do that, say goodbye to your children, because their lifes will change for the worse. The one or two exceptions, where certain people were able to withstand the breakdown in culture, will not be the document for justifying it. Go to a rehab center and see how their lives improved with drug usage. Legalize drugs, and the druggies will be making the decisions of where the next traffic light will be located.

                Cheers

                  the law is the law and until it is changed i think we should abide by it and do the penalties.

                  when the law changes and it should when it is wrong then the penalties will change.

                  what happens if murder becomes legal? are you saying we should not punish for those crimes we do not agree with.

                  prohibition was wrong and the way it was enforced was wrong, which does not mean those who did it should be forgiven, they broke the law knowing they would be punished by the penalties in force at that time.

                    Please pay me the complement of knowing that I concurr with both of you.....In fact, if you look at England, and Denmark for example, with their legalized Drug usage, it hasn't done anything for their societies, accept created a certain group of clandestined dope heads, who are incapable of contributing anything of value to society.
