Attractive Undercover Cop Poses As Student And Entraps Teens To "Sell" Her Marijuana

Working at the Drug Policy Alliance for the last twelve years I have read and heard countless stories of people having their lives ruined because of our country's cruel war on drugs. Last weekend, the nationally syndicated show This American Life highlighted a story that is so insane, you don't know whether to laugh or puke.

Last year in three high schools in Florida, several undercover police officers posed as students. The undercover cops went to classes, became Facebook friends and flirted with the other students. One 18-year-old honor student named Justin fell in love with an attractive 25-year-old undercover cop after spending weeks sharing stories about their lives, texting and flirting with each other.

One day she asked Justin if he smoked pot. Even though he didn't smoke marijuana, the love-struck teen promised to help find some for her. Every couple of days she would text him asking if he had the marijuana. Finally, Justin was able to get it to her. She tried to give him $25 for the marijuana and he said he didn't want the money -- he got it for her as a present.

10. Just what is your problem?

 

In case you did not know it, drugs are illegal and police must do what ever is necessary to stop them. What happened is not entrapment just like undercover detectives posing as minors online to trap pedophiles is not entrapment either. So, what's your problem?

2. I miss the days when these sort of narcs took 20,000ug LSD trips

 

They not only quit narcing, but some of them even turn their lives around.

3. That is cruel and entrapment.

She played with an immature kid's hormones and emotions to get him to do something illegal for her. I hope the judge throws it out and seals the record.

9. Throws it out my ass...

...I hope the cop goes to jail on drug charges. WTF is wrong with the world when law enforcement has to coerce you into breaking the law to make an arrest?

11. Really?

 

I suppose you feel the same way as undercover detectives who go on line posing as teens to catch pedophiles, right?

I see you've earned a tombstone.

13. Really?

 

And should cases of pedophiles who were trapped online by undercover detectives posing as minors be thrown out too?

5. As I said in another thread, what if it had been a male cop and a female student?

 

The howling and wailing would be audible in CA, WA and ME.

6. Back in the 70s, I had an undercover cop in Tyler, TX give me a heroin-laced joint.

Since I am highly allergic to opiates, it almost killed me. The next time I saw the undercover cop, I held my fingers up in the sign of a cross and she turned around and walked the other way, never to bother me again. (Helped convince me that narcs are indeed vampires.)

That cop and her partner were later memorialized (sic) in the movie, "Rush", starring Jennifer Jason Leigh and Jason Patric. Of course, that incident was far from an isolated one. In the past few years, the sheriff of Williamson County, TN was arrested for purchasing 1,600 Lortabs from a local drug dealer/pharmacist. That was his monthly purchase from the pharmacist, which he tried to convince the public here was for his personal use.

As for me, I would have loved to put that pig on the stand and had him ingest 53 Lortabs at one time. We would have removed one less hypocrite and drug profiteer from our midst.

8. undercover cops in tyler

chances are i know you. born in raised in tyler, my sister and I were right in the middle of all that crap...funny thing i watched RUSH for the 1st time today and thought i was going to be sick. those werent the people i knew.
i give kudos to them for picking greg allman with that beard and long hair he was spot on. kim wishes she had been that attractive. and whats up with the club it was NOT that country and western bar they showed. i believe i remember a light up dance floor as in saturday night fever. kim really out did herself, as stoned as she stayed im surprised she could remember a 10% of all that really happened. those 2 got more people hooked on well name it they had it...and our tax dollars at work. they lived off of the tax payers for a year all of their expenses rent cars booze cigs and you name it they had it. but they targeted the rich kids over at REL. they got more kids hooked then anyone. they befriended you and then gave it to you as "thats what friends do" didnt show that part in the movie, she conveniently left that part out. the lives they ruined just because one cop hated someone out of tyler. he was convinced he was in the mob. when he was the character from blow i gues he had his mobs mixed up! lol

7. look out

 

These despicable people should really tread lightly. Everyone is human and everyone has limits and breaking points. If you offer somebody a lot and keep persisting then they will often do things not ordinarily done. It's a lousy tactic. You are basically manufacturing criminals. It is pathetic.

15. While not illegal...

I understand the problem. That is a horrible way to go about it... especially with how many far easier marks for dealers there are.

That said, the "kid" is an 18-year-old man. He knew what he was doing was "wrong" (in the sense it was a violation of the law) and did it anyway. If it were a 14-year-old just hitting puberty, that's one thing. An 18-year-old is responsible enough to vote, buy a shotgun, run for school board and "join the army, burn villages and women and children after being a litterbug."

But again, I'm so glad we're wasting a ton of money on this crap. In the last 11 months, there have been nine meth labs busted in my county of 48,000 people. Before this year, there were none. We have bigger fish to fry than weed.
