Police Over-Reaction

on July 6, 2012

 

Yes, yes, I know.  “So, what else is new?”  Police in Long Beach, CA, raided a medical marijuana dispensary and trashed the place, after destroying the video surveillance equipment, which they apparently did not notice until after they had cuffed one of the volunteer employees (and stepped on his back and neck while he was on the ground).   The dispensary is legal by state laws, and follows all the protocols required by the state, but is banned under Long Beach municipal law.  Still, this is city cops, proceeding to raid a business that is legal under state law, acting like they are raiding the headquarters of some kind of drug cartel.   Would not this type of thing, legalized by the state, but frowned upon by the municipality, normally call for some kind of citation, as opposed to their inappropriate actions?  And doesn’t busting up the video surveillance cameras amount to destroying evidence?  Stay tuned, folks.  We’ll see if there are any repercussions for those cops.  Although I’m not holding my breath.  According to a Long Beach police spokesperson:

“A thorough review into what occurred during that operation will be conducted once all of the facts have been collected. This is a personnel matter and we are unable to discuss any further details,” Lisa Massacani, with LB police, wrote in a statement.

I’m so glad that the very sick and dying people of Long Beach who would get some relief with medical marijuana, are being protected from getting said relief by the jack-booted thugs of the Long Beach Police Department.   (/snark)
