This is what America has become- a Police State. Heavily armed, paramilitary "police" who kick in doors and terrorize citizens on the flimsiest of pretenses. They live dressing up in camo and carrying military weapons- despite the Constitution prohibiting the military from operating on domestic territory. And "supposedly" the police had these people under "surveillance" for "weeks" but still didn't realize they had no criminal records, had worked for the CIA and did nothing suspicious aside from buying hydro gear which is used to grow ANY sort of plant.
Hail to America- home of the oppressed!!

Looks like the sheriff's department in Johnson County is a true Barney Fife operation. I feel sorry for the taxpayers there who are paying for the pointless 4/20 games.

Kansas cops are scummy child molesting Nazi's who sit it at home and jerk it to episodes of CSI.

I knew a guy that this happened to a few years back. He was also a health freak who grew vegetables indoors through the cold months. The Kansas brownshirts saw this a a reason for their pathetic asses to play Rambo and ransack his house going through his wife's underwear drawer (stealing a few pair along with some cash) and found nothing without apology.

The bottom line is: Don't shop at the Green Circle in downtown. The pigs just watch the place and harass anyone who dares shop there. It's criminal behavior in civilized parts of the world but in Kansas these evil bastards operate without rules or restraint. Maybe if most of them graduated junior high these would realize what they do is plain wrong and illegal but then.....,
