You have zero idea how the justice system works. Leaving a suspected "drug house" is not probable cause for a search nor stop. Get your facts down before posting such rubbish.

Can you say "I smell something that stinks in this situation"? The story does not add up. Some details must be missing or swept under the rug. When I came across this story I thought "Really!?" And now the chief is 'stepping down'????
