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.

Yes, the CIA hasn’t been the same since Get Smart was cancelled.

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?


Yah, I loled too. Wickepedia is such a reliable source of information………….I am not surprised Henry has thoughts on it 😛
