Los Angeles Deputies Shoot, Kill 80 Year Old Man in Marijuana Raid

June 28th

LITTLEROCK, CA – Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies shot and killed an unidentified armed 80-year-old man as they served a search warrant on a marijuana grow operation in a remote part of the county early Thursday morning.

According to NBC Los Angeles, deputies were serving a “narcotics” search warrant at the multi-unit rural property in the desert community of Littlerock at 7:30 a.m. Lt. Dave Dolson told the TV station deputies entered the home through an unlocked front door, and one deputy fired when they encountered a man armed with a handgun.

The man, who may have been the property owner, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Later Thursday afternoon, the Sheriff’s Department released a statement on the killing.

“When deputies approached a rear bedroom at the location, they encountered an 80-year-old male who was armed with a semi-automatic handgun. The suspect pointed the handgun at the deputies and a deputy-involved shooting occurred,” the statement read.

Deputies recovered the gun, marijuana, and growing equipment at the home where the man was shot. Residents who lived in other units on the property were detained, but later released.

The shooting will be investigated separately by several agencies, including the offices of the Los Angeles County District Attorney and Coroner, and th. . . . . READ MORE

North Carolina Police Shoot, Kill Teen in Marijuana Sting Gone Bad

June 25th

CHARLOTTE, NC — An undercover drug sting in the parking lot of a Charlotte, North Carolina, elementary school ended up with one teenager dead, another wounded, and a community wondering why police chose that particular location for their operation.

According to reports from WSOC-TV and WBTV 3, police set up a marijuana buy between an undercover police officer, an informant, and two teenagers last Tuesday afternoon.

Police said that during the drug deal, Jaquaz Walker, 17, pulled a gun and shot the informant in the shoulder in an attempt to rob him.

 Jaquaz Walker, 17, was shot in the head by police in a botched marijuana sting at a Charlotte, NC elementary school last week.

Rich Paul Speaks Out at Sentencing

June 13th

KEENE, NH — Prominent New Hampshire marijuana activist Rich Paul was sentenced last week, after emotional and defiant remarks to the court.

In a 20 minute statement, he lashed out at the Drug War, and at the FBI for trying to spy on and intimidate political reformers. His friends filmed the courtroom, so a video record exists of the proceedings.

The videos below are well worth watching, giving a unique view of an actual trial of a dedicated man who held his head high. He maintained a level of honor far outshining that of the of the American legal system.

The judge chose to treat him neither as a noble dissident nor as a menace to society. In giving him much less than the maximum, he seemed to be dismissing Mr. Paul as a naughty child. Such is the sorry state of our society.

Rich got one year in jail, and three years of probation. The probation holds a threat of further jail time, unless he sticks to its many constraints, which may include restriction on associating with his friends. Of course, he also gets all the downside that comes along with a felony record.

On the positive side, Rich has already served two months, and with good behavior, will probably be out in seven more. He is also in a jail whose warden is a member of L.E.A.P, and who recently testified in favor of drug legalization at the state legislature.

Mr. Paul was denied release during his appeal. That appeal moves forward however, and hopefully will result in legal. . . . . READ MORE

‘Prince of Pot’ Marc Emery in Solitary Confinement in US Prison

June 10th

YAZOO CITY, MS — Canadian marijuana seed magnate and political dissident Marc Emery, who is about four years into a five-year US prison sentence for selling pot seeds over the Internet, has been sent to solitary confinement at the Mississippi federal prison where he’s doing his time.

According to the magazine he founded, Cannabis Culture, he is being punished over false charges.

Emery, along with other prisoners at the Yazoo City Federal Correctional Institution, formed a band some months ago. Photos of the band were taken by prison staff, then developed and sent to his wife, Jodie Emery, in Vancouver, and were posted on his blog in April.

According to Emery, permission for the photos was granted by three separate administrators, including one at the prison’s Special Investigative Services department.

But now, prison officials have placed Emery and his band mates in solitary confinement while they say they are investigating the possibility the photos had been taken with a prohibited smart phone. Prisoners in solitary, or, as it is euphemistically known, the Special Housing Unit (SHU), are locked in their cells 23 hours a day and denied normal prison amenities.

Emery has now been put in the solitary c. . . . . READ MORE
