The Therapy Sessions
Wednesday, June 04, 2003
Just when you want to argue that the new powers entrusted to the police are in good hands, a story like this comes along.
Police sold a Mexican a car with marijuana stashed into the bumper, and the poor guy was arrested a few months later when he tried to return to Mexico (smuggling drugs into Mexico? What is the point of that?)
There is no malice involved – the police who arrested him had no knowledge that the car was a purchased custums seizure. But there is massive incompetence.
The car was used to smuggle immigrants across the border into the US. A car coming from Mexico filled with illegal aliens and no one thinks to fetch the drug dogs?
