Damn son..... Thats a lot of sad junkies. I love the extra 5$ in cash, don't mind we found 110K in meth, but we got that extra 5 dollars.

On a secondary note, I do always love when on the news they say they busted X amount of dollars of a drug...lets use heroine, then i do the math then i think, OK, sure, if you sell it on the street in points i suppose you busted 1.2 million.... but what you really got was 6 Kg with an actual value of a lot closer to like 350K maybe 450. But good on them.
See i dont think drugs are bad, drugs are drugs, they dont really do anything. I think the people benefiting off other peoples misfortune and illicit activity are bad. I havent heard of Methamphetamine cutting off anyones head recently.

When I was working my narcotic trained police k-9, he discovered 1200 kilos of cocaine hidden within the drywall of a mansion in Beverly Hills. He also discovered $8 million in cash in another wall. After driving away, I discovered my dog grabbed a bundle of "hundreds", worth $10k, and was chewing on it, thinking it was his play toy. Yes, I returned it, in pieces, back to the evidence collection technicians.

Haven't heard of some gun speeding and running a school bus off the road either come to think of it

The Rice Krispies get upset when they're treated like that.
.....well, that's what they tell me anyway. And I'm not going to argue with the Rice Krispies, 'cause ...you know 😉

I think a lot of the mandates don’t do much but make people FEEL like they’re helping. Close the mom n pop shops but leave all the big corporate operations open??? Yeah, because COVID can’t be transmitted at HD or Lowe’s.

Or the grocery store. Or the liquor store. 😁

The biggest factory in our area and the local Walmart both had cases among employees last spring and the health dept. hushed it. That would have meant several thousand layoffs In a county of 23,000.

What blows me away is that over half of them were from Covid19. That is a lot of cops to lose from covid.

Our local Fire Dept. Facebook page was deleted by Facebook, because they shared a fund raising raffle for a volunteer dept. and one of the raffle items was a shotgun.
