And if its taken 6 months, please suit up new swat team members with some of those grant dollars cause if it took six months before you smelled a meth lab they need some better noses.
love to search and seize

they are fighting real crime. obviously you have never seen what meth can do to a family memeber you love or you would be as pleased as i am that another lab is gone. and it takes months to investigate so it will stick in court.

or maybe you are one of the drug heads tweaking cause your stash has been eliminated????

It's amazing all the stupid comments about the Swat team on this thread and pack of common sense. Even if it took 6 months who cares because obviously it took that long to get enough evidence and build a strong case to get them off the streets for a good while. What would be the point in arresting them in half the time or less and then back on streets a couple days or week or two later? Good job Swat and everyone involved!!

Six months on payroll to destroy the dope head who most of the time has nothing more than a habit, but now a large fine and the NPSO now has large sums of grant money. Wanna help - common sense says get them in rehab and stop overcrowding jails with people just to put money in your pocket - jerks! In the six months it took you to investigate they could be well and back to being tax paying citizens.

This is about the 100th meth lab they've discovered this year. God gosh, I thought about moving down here, but not with all those labs! Y'all be sure and add that to all those articles you send out to try and get people that retire to come and move to your town, cause its the main reason I'm not.
Wow it is true

I guess that ole whatajoke knew what they was talking about. Guess I have to second that go fight some real crime. We can watch that stupid stuff on tv.
Methamphetamine Initiatives

COPS Methamphetamine grants help state and local law enforcement agencies reduce the production, distribution, and use of methamphetamine. COPS Methamphetamine grants awarded since 1998 total more than $448 million. These innovative community policing grants encourage recipients to develop partnerships with such entities as community leaders, local fire departments, drug courts, prosecutors, child protective services, treatment providers, and other law enforcement agencies to create a coordinated response to methamphetamine proliferation. COPS grants have funded equipment, training, and personnel to improve intelligence-gathering capabilities, enforcement efforts, lab clean-up, training related to drug endangered children, and the prosecution of those who engage in methamphetamine-related crimes. Additionally, COPS has provided more than $120 million to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for clandestine methamphetamine lab clean-up, specialized enforcement training, and statewide methamphetamine summits.

COPS received nearly $63 million in funding for methamphetamine-related efforts in fiscal year 2006. The majority of this funding was awarded directly to state and local law enforcement agencies to purchase officer safety equipment and supplies, and to provide training to essential first responder personnel responsible for combating the use and distribution of methamphetamine in jurisdictions across the United States.

I don't remember reading any of them putting down "the law", just looks like to me they may be stating the fact that the task force is focusing on busting meth labs rather than fighting real crime so they can obtain the federal grands they offer in it looks like the millions. Guess I would probably do the easy money work myself. To hell with the real crime 911 can wait.

It's about time law enforcement gets serious about meth labs. Didn't Buster Foshee shoot at the cops a few years ago? Why is he not in jail? And I assume the Vercher girl is related to the Vercher family in Flora with a long history of meth use.

I hope these two are in jail for along time, tax money well spent (for once).

"Busting met labs rather than fighting real crime" What watermelon truck did you fall off of? I do believe that met labs are real crime. That has got to be one of the dumbest statements I've seen on here. Better give that mail order diploma back......

Obviously you have no idea what u are talking about! The household chemicals the law considers to be a meth lab can be found in ANYBODIES house, idiot! So basically I'm sure what they are doing is busting a probably occasional user and pinning a meth lab on em. That way the can be better their chances of getting in on the money offered by the government. Therefore ignoring crimes such as robberies, rape, and Ahh, let me see how i can explain this where someone at your retard grade level can understand - REAL F-ing Crime!

You're right about the stuff being in everybody's or almost everybody's house, but its what else goes with it. I know exactly what I'm talking about it seems you're the lost one. Maybe you need to educate yourself before you start making statements that have on foundation. Just Google it, its easy to do. If you're producing Met. you're not a occasional user and if you're sucking those items into your lungs for you're body to take in, well what can I say is it sounds like you might be hitting the pipe yourself. Maybe they need to take a few lessons in chemistry before they blow themselves up. You don't make any sense with you're post saying it not a crime, read the law!!!!!!!!!!

Wish they would start giving them pillhead grants. It's rampant. Don't count on the meth users staying in jail too long. Don't count on them even going to court on felony charges. they will reduce the charges. Let them cop a plea.
Most of the druggies busted here , get a slap on the wrist, ordered to pay large amounts of money , and put back out on the streets to do it again. A money racket. Very few do much jail time

Dunut Believe You, maybe you need to read you post before posting your thoughts. The dope must have those cells fried or maybe your cooking up a batch..... You sure aren't making much sense in your last post. My point was NOT that doing drugs of any type is not a crime - it was however,(not that this simple stated will make you understand better) was that everyone in America has two or three of the chemicals in homes at any time that can possibly go into making up a meth lab. Just because someone has a bottle of peroxide, polish remover, and a box of matches doesn't mean they are making up a batch of drugs to sell. Even if they are stupid enough to be sucking it into there lungs. I have no reason to read up on the chemicals used or educate myself in chemistry, didn't much like it in school and don't suppose I'd be too interested in it now. With that in mind and can be used as a great example that if I chose to do it and got busted with a possession charge in my home wouldn't mean that when the law began searching around and came upon three ingredients used for making it around my house shouldn't make me labeled as a meth lab cook. Now, if they found the stuff boiling or whatever on my stove or in process then of course I would deserve to be labeled,
That would be like going into a potheads house and a plate pot with a few pot seeds in and around the pot where it had been sifted thru to enjoy a big fatty, then the law saying the guy was planning on saving those few seeds for future planting.
I believe and I'm not an expert that perhaps what "what a joke" may have been trying to express is that swat team task force officers are in a race for the federal grant monies that they really didn't find real live meth labs actually cooking or even planning to cook anything other than their very small brains. And quiet possibly could have meant that while they were harassing someone who isn't much more than a nobody ignoring the bank robbers or a child molester or the real big king pen drug dealers.
