+EdwardGlen Posted January 13, 2011 Report Share Posted January 13, 2011 Last night while the better half and I were discussing the latest raid our grandson overheard us and asked why are people being arrested if there is a law saying they can do what they're doing. Before we went any deeper we called and had Mom and Dad join in the conversation and the we asked him what doesn't he understand about the raids and arrests. (He knows that grandpa uses marijuana when he his back is hurting and that Aunt "Debbie" used it when she was getting chemotherapy) He asked; "if the law says people can use marijuana why are the police arresting them if they follow the law" We explained that under our law the "stores" (as he calls them) are not exactly legal because they were not included in the law but they weren't specifically excluded in the law either. Then he said; "why don't they tell the store owners until its figured out to close-up" we explained that some patients can only get medication from these stores or its the only way they want to get their medication. He's ten and Mom and Dad have always been straight forward with all their kids about everything and they encourage the children to ask questions about anything. After about an hour or so of explaining things in a way he'd understand with the conflict between a state law and a federal law he said he understood and hopes that it all will get fixed soon. And as he was leaving the living room he turned to his Mom and said; "They're bullies" and he's right. Its exactly what the sheriff and oakland county is doing, bullying people. bully 'A person who uses strength or power to harm or intimidate those who are weaker' Sheriff of oakland county you are a bully and I have a true disdain for bullies. Intimidation, bullying, and arresting people, nice civics lesson being taught to our children. Never mind we have a law says we can a small group of wealthy individuals says we can't. And the fact that oakland county is the fourth wealthiest county in the country has a lot to do with the way they're acting. The phony moral outrage being put fourth by that counties 'leaders" and law enforcement is a joke (considering the history of rampant crime in the oc sheriffs dept and the county execs drinking and driving history) and a slap in the face to our founding fathers and every service member and LEO who has died for our constitution. I have never been able to conceive how any rational being could propose happiness to himself from the exercise of power over others. - Thomas Jefferson Peace Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
