Polk undercover drug investigators play Wii during raid
Source: News Channel 8

By STEVE ANDREWS | News Channel 8

Published: September 21, 2009


With guns drawn and flashlights cutting through darkened rooms, Polk County undercover drug investigators stormed the home of convicted drug dealer Michael Difalco near Lakeland in March.

As investigators searched the home for drugs, some drug task force members found other ways to occupy their time. Within 20 minutes of entering Difalco's house, some of the investigators found a Wii video bowling game and began bowling frame after frame.

While some detectives hauled out evidence such as flat screen televisions and shotguns, others threw strikes, gutter balls and worked on picking up spares.

A Polk County sheriff's detective cataloging evidence repeatedly put down her work and picked up a Wii remote to bowl. When she hit two strikes in a row, she raised her arms above her head, jumping and kicking.

3. I often wonder how someone who is underemployed or unemployed...
...can stand reading about incidents like this one without their blood boiling.

I mean, I imagine these detectives are pulling pretty-good salaries...and they're still working!

6. I am unemployed.
And am thankful that someone is willing to do the dirty work for a safe society.
They are entitled to a moment of levity.

Screwing around with potential evidence for play time is not only unprofessional, it could undermine the investigation. If that's what they want, then get out of the way and get someone in there who will do a proper, professional job...

10. I believe they were doing it "during"
Cataloging evidence is part of the investigation. Fucking around while you're suppose do be doing your job is unprofessional.

11. I think Difalco should sue them for rent on his Wii.
I think about $4 million/hr should be appropriate.
