Home made tazer in the Gowrie drug house

By johnboy - 30 May 2012 23

A 33-year-old man will face court tomorrow on drug-related charges after a search warrant was executed on a house in Gowrie today (Tuesday, 29 May).

During the search warrant, members from ACT Policing’s Crime Targeting Team seized what is suspected to be a quantity of methamphetamine, as well as what is suspected to be cannabis plants and dried cannabis.

Police also seized several items suspected of being stolen property, including a motorcycle and approximately $5000 worth of tools. A homemade ‘taser’-type device was also seized.

The man was arrested at the end of the search warrant and was taken to the ACT Watch House, where he is expected to be charged with trafficking in a controlled drug.

He will face the ACT Magistrates Court tomorrow morning (Wednesday, 30 May), when police will be opposing bail.

Ah, the good old CIA. If it didn’t exist, we would have to invent it, or most of the world’s conparacy theories would collapse.

If only they were half as capable as they are in the movies.

Come on. Air America. What do you think they were all about?

And the result of the CIA-sponsored drug epidemic in the USA?

Perhaps you should take another look at their achievements:

They have overthrown dozens of governments, broken the laws of most countries on earth and abduct people, without charge, constantly.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_Activities_Division

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extraordinary_rendition_by_the_United_States

By comparison their portrayal in the media has been rather modest

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CIA_in_fiction_and_the_movies

In fact they are barely covered by the media when compared to the influence they exert over the media

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CIA_and_the_media

Indeed many of their declassified projects are so wacky you wouldn’t believe it if it were turned into a movie.

Feeding LSD to thousands of people against their will in giant mind control scheme

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_MKULTRA

Lying to millions of people and impersonating various groups.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COINTELPRO

The number of pies they have their fingers in is truly staggering

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Central_Intelligence_Agency_operations

And thats just the stuff we know about, there is so much more they hide from everyone, including their own government, that no one really knows the extent of their activities.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_Intelligence_Agency#Lying_to_Congress

The factual reality of the CIA is so much broader and scarier than the movies make out that I think most people are too scared to look into it, or just don’t care.

All this is a bit beside the point in this thread, but just dismissing people because they mention the CIA is really quite counterproductive to stimulating conversation.

On the other hand if you don’t believe the CIA was involved in drug trafficking to fund operations off-budget then I’ve got a very great number of large bridges to sell you.

How much?

While I partly agree with the sentiment, did you have to go all Clive Palmer and bring the CIA into it?

Clive Palmer did not have decades of research and reports showing the agency caught red handed in the act. His unsupported allegations do not make all other allegations against the agency also unfounded. As I said, the CIA has been proven to traffic drugs, time and again in countries right around the world.

Snitches get stiches, dogging a supplier is worse than getting busted.

I have a lot of sympathy for drug dealers, they don’t create the demand they just supply it. When the police and physicians won’t let you get high, there is always a friendly neighbourhood dealer risking their neck to get you a little happier.

Besides, if you go far enough up the food chain it goes way outside the AFP’s jurisdiction. Who is running those opium fields in Afghanistan? the fields gaurded by American troops, the fields whose production has increased ten fold since the US invaded.

Who controls the coca fields in south america? That same cocaine which has been *proven* time and again to be smuggled around the world by the CIA.

Busting small time dealers for doing their mates a favour, real impressive work there. But then, not a lot the Canberra cops can do about the drugs coming in in diplomatic pouches is there? Its a lot easier to bust meth dealers and potheads than to go after the bankers, lawyers and judges who snort coke for breakfast.

So yes, boo hoo, poor dealer, taking the fall because we keep criminalising natural human behaviour. There have been drugs longer than there have been police, and there will still be drugs long after there are police. The usage rate doesn’t change when it is made legal and after a hundred years of drug war, the usage rate is still no different. So why is it still a crime to get high?

Poor bastard, the dealer takes the fall, the producers get away and the customers end up going to someone even dodgier. I wonder what “a quantity” means.

The dealer is a crook too, petal

As is someone who is busted for going over the speed limit.

Therefore, speeding is just as bad as dealing or producing drugs.

Seems like everyone is getting “Tazers”/stunners at the moment, they must be the new firecracker.

Disposable cameras have never been so popular.
