    Nice :cry: At what cost are we doing these things. I dunno, perhaps our undercover cops could have asked permission to be on the man's property. As I read it, they were armed, apparently drug dealing, trespassers.

    So let me see if I am tracking here.

    I sell drugs, I am committing a crime that is punishable by going jail for more time than rapists and murders.

    A police officer sells the same drugs and he is a hero, ridding the community of scum.


    And just for clarity, I can't break the law...only the people paid to enforce the law can break the law.

    Yeah, nothing wrong with a system like that... :puke:

    In this case they were one and the same. The police were the drug dealers.

    Is there a real law or case law that explicitly says that the police are allowed to break the law to enforce the law?

    Or is it more of the "we, the government, hold a monopoly on force. And you'll like it."

    At what point do these "stings" become entrapment?
