Box of Twinkies Please

  • Cook County Forest Preserve police and agents with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration on Wednesday destroyed an elaborate marijuana-growing operation tucked away in a patch of woods in Palos Township.

    In all, authorities burned about 6,000 marijuana plants that were being cultivated in six fields along a stream in the Edward M. Sneed Forest Preserve near 123rd Street and LaGrange Road.

    If harvested, the 12,000 pounds of pot would have had an estimated street value of almost $2.5 million, according to Forest Preserve Police Chief Richard Waszak.

And a truly amusing picture:

This guy must have had such a headache the next day. He probably woke up amidst the wreckage of a case of assorted Hostess products and his NetFlix queue was all Cheech & Chong movies.

These outdoor growth busts are improper on weight. They weigh the whole plant whereas only the buds are usable. Stems and leaves? They really are no good.

I always liked a bottle of milk and chocolate chip cookies while some Hendrix is playing. Oh to be back in 1969 again. I think I know why the pot was a lot better back then, it wasn't near as strong as today's very high THC level stuff. No need to hallucinate after one little toke. The crushed green leafy substance of 1969 did just fine. Go Jimmy, more Purple Haze, whatever happened to Wavy Gravy? Gotta go to Woodstock now.

Veeerry true! Now that "Pretty Boy" Mike is in control, crime will be non-existent in 022! This clown has nooo idea how things work in tact and has never done it. Not that is rocket science but this guy has no clue on what he is doing. Good thing he's heavy and will land on his feet, as always. Just like he landed on his feet after the SOS incident in which he was the C.O. of the courts and none of his buddies were written up for not showing up in court, which turned out being a red flag. He should've got some major time. But again, CLOUT RULES!!

Apparently SCC never went through a pot-smoking phase. Marijuana may lead to junk food binges, but not to headaches.

Marijuana prohibition is such a massive waste of time and resources. And it leads to nasty relations with our neighbors to the south, and the crime that inevitably grows up around prohibited but desired substances.

Legalize and tax!

Agreed! The untold billions of dollars spent to enforce these silly laws would be better spent hiring training and paying a professional salary to Police Officers. Then maybe a dent could be made in the gun violence. Until that happens, you get what you deserve.

And of course now pot is impossible to find on the streets of Chicago! Or its price has risen dramatically! Or. . . nothing has changed.

Legalize, regulate, tax. The prohibition against pot has worked just as well as the one against booze. Free up cops to concentrate on violent crime.

Betcha you'd volunteer to "clean it", The stem of the plant is also illegal and last I heard the leaves are smoked too, yes I could see it now, Have the officer's remove the stems so we can weigh only the good parts. Now turn the fan on facing out so your mother doesn't smell it

De-policing and decriminalization seems to be a trend for the future.

I don't recall what jurisdiction it was, but just last week while net surfing, I read a story about the Police no longer responding to retail theft calls with the total loss would be under $ 50. The retailers were literally told that if the amount of the theft was BELOW $ 50, DO NOT CALL THE POLICE!

Thanks for the tip on the uptownupdate and their site tells a good story about how little community support these copwatch morons have,,,but it got me thinking,,,They held their fundraiser at the Catholic Workers House,,,so here's a typical follow the money scenario.
Not to pick on a parish but St Clement Church in Lincoln Park, where alot of yuppies have been attacked, gave $9000 to the Catholic Campaign
for Human Development which gave money to the Chicago Worker's Collaborative which supports the Catholic Workers House which supports Copwatch. Again only bringing up Clement because they have their contribution online.

At the very least, try and figure out where any money you give to charities is really going before you donate. Most of these dickhead groups get the money from people who would be surprised to find out they are supporting them in the first place.

Did you ever notice that as a cop, there are certain sounds that you'll never forget: the racking of a shotgun, the slamming of a cell door, the death rattle...

I heard one an hour ago that I only heard twice before. It was unmistakable as I walked past a balconied 38 floor high rise--a loud yet muffled thud from a tennis court above my sidewalk view. It was immediately followed by the screams of apparent circumstantial witnesses.

Minutes later, the wailing sirens of CFD and 018 arrived at 2020 N. Lincoln Park West to pick up the pieces.

It was my second surprise of the day. Earlier, I spoke with the workers who had pumped out the waters of the South Pond in Lincoln Park for a project. A bridge crosses over the pond. After perhaps a century, not one gun was found. Incredible. I personally handled homicide cases where the shooters confessed to tossing the murder weapon into Lake Michigan, the Chicago River or another body of water.

Former Cmdr. Frank T. alleged that without his knowledge, his lady placed her last gram of Peruvian marching powder on her clitoris. In an ensuing cunnilingus session, the commander inadvertently ingested the cocaine causing positive test results.

He was exonerated. In turn, he allegedly disciplined his lady.

Several years earlier, Lt. Ollie M. made an identical claim which resulted in his separation.

There was also an unconfirmed rumor that years ago, a female officer also tested positive for cocaine under similar circumstances after performing fellatio on a boyfriend. After review of the IAD investigation by the chain of command, she was supposedly vindicated.

My vote is also to legalize it , tax it and get at that money in the underground ghetto economy. For you citizens and trolls out there, know this; the ghetto ain't poor. Some of the people are poor, but the ghetto has lots of cash flowing through it, in addition to other parts of town. Tapping this would easily pay for all the "programs" the politicians want to placate the masses with. Hell, it might even pay for our contract. Instead we fools take on all these "fees" in the name of whats right and proper. The world is WAY more complicated than this. In the end, it's all about the money!

Bullshit. I worked for Ryan in the Court Section. He did everything by the book. Maybe 022 needs some new blood on the tact team. Every time there is a new tact Lt. anywhere they pull their own team. He's not doing anything that isn't done everywhere. Everyone's talking smack because he's so straight. He can be a tough guy but if you're in trouble and you tell him the truth and he believes you tried to do the right thing, he'll go to the wall for you. He's got a high credibility factor with the bosses because of that.

Back in the 70's, after a judge threw out a seizure at a suppression hearing, he called us up and suggested that we take lab tested marijuana that was no longer needed as evidence and due to be destroyed and burn it at roll call. That way we would be able to say in court that we actually smelled the odor of what we know based on the lab test to be marijuana.
