Belconnen drug bust

By 123qwe - 23 November 2008 124

Going about my business on Friday and couldn’t help but come across police everywhere.

About 2:30pm cops at the top of the Belconnen Mall car park; had grabbed two blokes in a ute. Probably about 5 unmarked cop cars.

Then about six o’clock that same day, same cops took over the halal fruit market in Kippax.

One mention on the ABC about a drug bust http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2008/11/22/2426990.htm?site=canberra

No mention on the AFP website, but they obviously have grabbed a serious amount of drugs from someone.

What’s Your opinion?

VYBerlina, fair enough, I guess I went straight for the “arrgh, shaddup” argument because this topic seems to degenerate to that level pretty quickly here, despite best intentions and clearly worded arguments.

Lemme muster some thoughts and get back to you.

Surprise surprise.

It’s no wonder then that our politicians can’t put forward sensible alternatives to the current drug policy. The idiots just scream so loudly.

Shtis me that most police seem to support the status quo, even though they have seen how ineffectual it is first hand.

In the interest of fairness, how about each side explains why they do or do not like drugs, and why they do or do not think harsh penalties are required. Perhaps keeping a lid on the emotion might help us get to the issues beneath.

I’m with babyace and dexi. All you buttoned-down plastic-fantastic Madison Avenue ninnies who think prohibition is The Great Panacea, please STFU and try not to be so terrified of everything.

Being high in Belconnen relates to altitude not drugs. The air is fresher here than anywhere else in Canberra. Back into your swamp llamafrog!

Fine, start building jails. Very big jails. Fill them full. Keep building jails and fill them. Build another jail and another. Fill them full. I’m not sure where the tipping point lies with jailed tax payers on drugs charges and working tax payers paying for the jail system. It would be cheaper to shoot them. Less tax. But it also, would be easier to step over your cold bloody body to get to your big screen TV.

Its a savage world you want. Makes me want to escape it. Hmmmmm.

It’s everywhere not just Belco, As soon as they bust one dealer, 3 more are ready to take their place (there is too much money to be made in the drug trade, 4 such minimum penalty) We should be like the Asian country’s & have a zero tolerance, & on the 2nd offense they should get the death penalty “NO EXCUSES”

So increase the penalty…. 1st offence dealing anything = 10 years before parole, 2nd offence 15 years before parole and so on. What amazes (and offends) me is that the Courts actually believe the stories drug users/dealers come up with.

Stop talking to yourself, babyface!

Ant, I shudder to think of the price of bananas. Not so long ago they were like gold, and you couldn’t even make a banana cake. My kids had almost forgotten what a banana looked like!

No, legalise it, and take money out of the equation. Then they could sell halal drugs next to the bananas, and for about the same price.
