Undercover Cops at High School Bust Special Needs Teenager for Pot

21-jump-st-logoI feel safer already. Jackasses.

Via AlterNet:

Californians Doug and Catherine Snodgrass are suing their son’s high school for allowing undercover police officers to set up the 17-year-old special-needs student for a drug arrest.

In a video segment on ABC News, they say they were “thrilled” when their son — who has Asperger’s and other disabilities and struggled to make friends — appeared to have instantly made a friend named Daniel.

“He suddenly had this friend who was texting him around the clock,” Doug Snodgrass told ABC News. His son had just recently enrolled at Chaparral High School.

“Daniel,” however, was an undercover cop with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department who “hounded” the teenager to sell him his prescription medication. When he refused, the undercover cop gave him $20 to buy him weed, and he complied — not realizing the guy he wanted to befriend wanted him behind bars.

    I see an effort in this to justify the pointless and fruitless war on drugs. With the economy in such bad shape they need at least arrests to cite as the expense of their program comes under scrutiny and fire.

    Schools were institutionalized when I attended but it has become a downward spiral since then. Public Education is like the Federal Reserve in that it is neither. Meh!

    “hmm…this job sucks…how can I do the absolute minimum to get by?” seems to have been the thought here. I know I’ve had those thoughts. I guess you don’t picture undercover cops thinking that way. If it were a movie he would have befriended the most popular kids in the school and removed the bad influences who were supplying them with bad cocaine etc.

      It seems to be standard practice for cops really. Can’t find crime? Go out and actively encourage it. If cops couldn’t use entrapment as a standard technique, arrest rates would probably plummet and no one would be able to claim to have prevented a “terrorist attack.”

        More importantly, budgets would decrease.

        Exactly it’s the same type of shit. They have to essentially create a “criminal” for them to arrest. Just like the military and “intelligence” agencies are busy creating “terrorists” all over the planet for them to fight. It’s truly sickening.

    Arrrrrgh, this shit drives me nuts.
    The pigs in this case are fucking human scum. They’re same kind of assholes that arrest little old ladies for pulling bottles from the recycle bins. I wish there were a hell for these people.

    I’m confused
    was it the undercover pig who was mentally challenged or the victim?

    but I do think it shows that
    there are far too many pigs in the Fema Camp of the Free
    which of course
    has the most pigs in total number & per capita
    of ANY kuntery in the whirled

    Narc solicits minor for drugs and commits entrapment against said minor with
    special needs, and it’s the kid who gets put in cuffs.

    This is fucking retarded.

    Similar thing happened to a really good guy at my high school. He never touched drugs. Never got into trouble. Hooked his new “friend” up with a dime bag after being hounded for days. New friend turned out to be a narc. Still makes me mad.

    Holy sh*t is that some serious entrapment. This shouldn’t be a call for a lawsuit…it should be a call for an execution. Stalking a socially awkward kid and hounding him to commit a crime to keep his only new friend???? The cop belongs in a public pillory so passersby can huck rotten trash at him for sport.
