Makes perfect sense in CAWe had a drug deal go wrong up the street from me
Buyer and seller parked near bank so buyer could pull out more $$$
Buyer wanted 10 pounds weed
Seller only had 2 pounds
Seller was convicted in Texas of selling 50 pounds of weed- fellony
Seller was on probation and was told- if you want to sell weed- go where it is legal
Seller buys Used gun in Louisiana
Buyer attacks seller- alledegdly
Buyer is shot in abdomen - exits butthole
Seller- fearing jail- driver buyer to Emercency Room
Seller is found a few days later- arrested with 10 pounds of weed and the firearm
DA does not want to enforce laws
Not a fellon in CA as selling weed would be legal here- so Texas fellony ifnored
Not a fellon in possession of a firearm
Not going to charge them moving to state and not registering gun
It makes no sense
Do like I did. Get in and immediately get out of the city, do the reverse in the same fashion. The rural area is absolutely beautiful and has great folks. I feel bad for them...I would think you guys were pranking me if it weren't on the news.
My ambitions of visiting the northwest are caving, sad.
You are most likely correct.Something to ponder.
In places like Portland wouldn't it be considered SOP to place "like minded" folks in places of authority in LEO.
These are the basics of ideology of the Blue team.
