Arm yourself and then the next time you spot one, exact your own kind of justice. Don't know about where you're at but around here cops spend more time being armed taxpayers for state and county government (speeding tickets) than they do detering or investigating real crimes that affect true quality of life.

And around here, in Vancouver, they only look for seat belt violators. Once in awhile, they're forced to pull over a speeder or two (out of the hundreds that buzz by them every day). We've got cars that cruise the main drags, playing a certain track from a CD (can't call it music because all we can hear is the pounding bass that rattles our windows and shakes the ground). That noise is used to announce what drug is available. After about 4 or 5 passes, they congregate at a certain little shopping center and wait for the consumers...

The way it works is like this.....you can contact the police all you want, but without probable cause or a search warrant, they cannot just go in and make a search. That would be a violation of civil rights, which I agree sounds sometimes ridiculous, but it's the law nonetheless. If you suspect drug activity, be very specific about why you believe the activity is ongoing when you contact the authorities. If the police have time and resources they can sometimes do a knock and talk and at least try to develop more probable cause to take the investigation further. Sometimes it's bleak at best, but unfortunately the laws in this country make it harder for the police to do their job. Sad but true.
