Evidence for search of Leawood home called flimsy - KansasCity.com

Anybody else read this article in the Kansas City Star? This is ridiculous. Big brother in the extreme. Scary. Unacceptable. Reckless. Traumatizing. Defamation of character. Somebody or multiple people need to be fired over this. I think it's THAT serious. I hope these supposed detectives and police force truly messed with the WRONG people. If this can happen to an affluent household in an affluent neighborhood with a highly educated member (a lawyer), think what they can do to modest or disadvantaged households and people!

-This man was held on the ground with a man holding an assault rifle over him in his own house!

-His children had to witness this situation!

-The cops had record of him being at a freaking store! (Makes me wonder if it's that license-reading scanning BS they're using now.)

-The couple and their children had to deal with their neighborhors thinking they might be drug producers and for a lengthy period of time!

Honestly I think this is a situation that I wish could be handled man-to-man. Somebody needs to beat the **** out of the reckless fools who allowed this to happen, so they "get" what they did, just like they expect criminals to "get" what they did, or worse - they were basically acting as terrorists and should be charged with a crime and never allowed to work in law enforcement again. Accountability. Make an example of these fools, maybe others will do their jobs right and think more about what they're doing.

I'd just like to say that the misplaced modifier in the headline lead me to believe that the home was flimsy.

That being said:
All cops should know what pot smells like. I mean, pretty much everyone else does. So when they pull a leafy green substance out of the trash bags, they should smell it to determine fairly conclusively if it's pot or not.

Anyway, enormous lawsuit should follow. And it should succeed. Who cares about weed these days anyway except these loser cops in these small JOCO towns with nothing better to do? Oh my god, I ran a stop sign by slowing to .0001 MPH instead of 0. Better give me a ticket!

My main concern is the flimsy probable cause used to obtain the search warrant in the first place. Shame on the judge who issued it.

Used brewed tea leaves are neither green nor leafy.

Fire the police. Then Legalize pot. Problem(s) solved.

Exactly. That''s what leads me to believe it was more of a bold faced lie than a "false positive"...

Couldn't they have spent their time and taxpayers' money better by looking for meth labs?

Here in Denver there are a lot of these "indoor grow stores" with big MJ leaves in their logos. But then it's leagal here lol!

Leawood's not particularly known for being a hotbed of meth. I don't know if these police busted in looking for upscale pot dealers a la the cast of Weeds, or what.
