Why don't the cops go after the real criminals, the ones in Sacramento or Wash DC? I guess it's because they are the cops' bosses.

Isn't Los Molinos where the guy got killed last month when they came and took his grow? Don't you think its better if they can raid the big grows like this with cash assets? You know they need funding. This will cover a cops pay for quite a while. When they release those 500 felons from prison on this county, there will be REAL CRIMINALS here too. Dont worry about it, be happy, have a toke.

It's like this --

These fools were participating in a criminal operation: growing, and distributing a drug that causes damage to the brain, to life and society. Legal or illegal, this drug, like all drugs, is poison. They joined a game for which the consequences include some harsh outcomes. This hard fact, they just discovered the hard way.

Now, they get the immense joy of experiencing the California criminal justice system, impossibly expensive legal bills (which Mom and Dad will have to pay), defense lawyers, their parents and relatives broken hearts, their friends betraying them and testifying against them (the birds are frantically singing as we speak, here, there and everywhere) and no doubt, prison sentences. And these are just the state charges. How much did they sell across state lines? That's federal trouble, friends, and a whole new set of ugly problems.

Where else were they selling their drugs? Grass Valley? Fairfield, Iowa? San Francisco? Sacramento? Whose children were they pulling into their nightmare and supplying their addiction?

To these predatory fools I say: Poison our children and face the consequences. Prison is a perfect place to think over your life's direction. Use your time behind bars to do something useful, helpful, and positive for your community and yourself.

Salute to the investigators, officers, judges, DA and informers who helped stop this group of predatory punks and drug dealers. To the parents who have seen drugs take their child's future - be glad these predators are off the streets.

Their last name is Keene. Isn't there a local politician with the same last name? Did he own the houses? Is he their dad? Their uncle?
