Definitely arrest all these guys. We know that nobody in government or law enforecement is smoking illegal drugs! I bet Phelps is the only person in america doing this. Get him off the streets before he harms our country. He is not helpful (like all the politicians and bankers) he needs to be eradicated.

This is how Sheriff Leon Lott diverts the attention from the real criminals. Deputies will now be chasing down potheads instead of ATM killers.....so you all feel safer now?

Gimme a break. They have a *photograph* of him holding a pipe to his mouth. How the heck are they going to *prove* that there was marijuana in it? Simple. They can't. Get back to doughnut munching you imbociles and leave him alone.

Unbelievable and inexcusable waste of resources.
Future generations will criticize us for being so fearful of our government.
The government does not have your best interests at heart.

Does RCSD put this much time and effort into all misdemeanors? Somehow,I doubt it.

This is nothing but a attention grabbing witch hunt by the Sheriff's office. I'm thinking "slack-jawed yokels". Maybe they'll also go after the cast of "The Seventies Show" next: Yes um, I sur do believe they were up to no good in that basement and we got the film to prove it!

Has he yet publicly admited it? I am curious, I haven't seen anything... If he did, then there is the evidence, until then the photo is as useless as arresting him for walking into a head shop...

Even IF they try to get him on a paraphenalia charge IF and WHEN they find the bong. It will be impossible for them to prove any resin in it was NOT introduced AFTER he had possesion of it...
