It's a joke, Brother.
However, I'm certainly not afraid to admit I can hack. Doesn't mean I do.

nothing was ever mentioned again about the supposed child porn.
Um, honestly ... I have no problem at all with getting a major drug dealer off the street. (Back in my ACLU membership days, I may have had ...)

Yes, it's questionable that an "anonymous" tip allowed them to search and, gee, find that he was exactly what they THOUGHT he was.

But the lesson here to me seems to be that they should have had an easier time finding grounds for a search warrant in the first place.

But somehow the ones who prosecuted him are WORSE than the dealer himself? Or, as you put it in an earlier post, they are worse than those who consume child pornography? Really?
