The interesting thing about this report from Fox Carolina is that the reporters are following a series of drug related child abuse stories at one apartment complex but they seem to blame the complex itself for the crime, not the drug use. I’m pretty sure the building didn’t force this “mother” to smoke weed all day while flies laid eggs in her infant’s diaper, and I know the building didn’t make the infant test positive for cannabis in it’s system. But hey what do I know? I’m just one of those fascists who thinks drugs are bad for you:
And here I thought people having access to legal marijuana would eliminate crime. From MercuryNews.com:
PACHECO — A man was shot outside a minimart Sunday during a soured marijuana deal arranged through Craigslist, the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Office said.
The victim, a 41-year-old Pacheco resident, met with an unknown man in the parking lot of a convenience store in the 5200 block of Pacheco Boulevard with the intent to sell marijuana, said Sheriff’s spokesman Jimmy Lee.
They got into the would-be seller’s car, where he asked the prospective buyer if he was legally able to possess marijuana, Lee said. The stranger then pulled out a gun.
The victim got out of the car and ran away but the gunman opened fire, striking him in the leg. The gunman fled in another vehicle and was last seen getting onto Highway 4, Lee said.
The wounded man drove home and contacted authorities.
If I were shot in the leg I’d probably call an ambulance to my location but hey, I’m sually sober.
You know, it’s almost as if legalizing pot would not remove criminals from the drug culture – they’d just be arrested less often. Someone should tell medical marijuana dealers that.
Thanks to Trench for the tip.
Tony Bennett claimed Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson would all be alive if we legalized drugs, which is odd since all three died abusing either prescription drugs or alcohol. Last I heard these were legal. Here’s my response at Red State.
This story starts off bad and gets worse. Anyone care to tell me how legalizing drugs would have made this story better?
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — A Port St. Lucie man was arrested on child abuse charges after he made his 11-year-old son smoke “God’s herb” and then “made him stand with his arms extended out to the side in the same fashion as Jesus on the cross,” according to a police report released Tuesday.
Richard Nazareth, 38, turned himself in to police Thursday, more than a month after the alleged incident occurred.
Port St. Lucie police said Nazareth forced his son to smoke marijuana while he and his 9-year-old sister were staying at Nazareth’s house for a weekend in March.
According to the police report, Nazareth served both children a piece of bread and a small cup of wine, telling them it was the body and blood of Christ. After dinner, Nazareth brought a bag of marijuana, a pipe and a lighter to the table and began to smoke the marijuana in front of them, telling them it was “God’s herb.”
When the children declined Nazareth’s offer to smoke with him, Nazareth told his son to “cup his hands around his mouth and exhale all of his breath” while Nazareth blew smoke into the boy’s mouth, the report stated.
Wow. That’s some stonery parenting. But it gets worse. Much worse:
The next day, Nazareth took the children to a woman’s house for church, where Nazareth made his son smoke marijuana again and then made him imitate Jesus on the cross, the report stated.
After dinner, Nazareth placed one of his tears and the woman’s tears into a bottle of wine, then spit in it and added a drop of beer. Nazareth then used the mixture to bless the house and made both children drink from it “before drinking some himself and sharing some” with the woman, the report stated.
So if drugs were legal this probably wouldn’t have been illegal and … what? Richard Nazareth would have raised a serial killer? Or eventually would he have ended up killing the boy in some more extreme ceremony he and his gutterslut dreamed up while getting high?

While the MSM tells you everything is just fine now that Barack Obama has magically saved the economy through creating unsustainable entitlements and smugly dismissing the majority of Americans, those of us who by necessity wade into the news with an eye on economics, criminality or the cohesion of the country have seen much that is disturbing. America has never, in my memory, teetered on the brink of chaos so obviously, and those that pretend to not see it are whistling past the graveyard.
There’s been violence at the Tea Parties … mostly from the left. Code Pink ally, 9/11 truther and St. Charles Democratic Party member in good standing Steve Bulosi attacked an elderly woman at a Tea Party while he John Durajczyk, the Secretary of the St. Charles County Democratic Committee tried to shout down Lt. Governor Peter Kinder. Violent leftist thugs were arrested in Sacremento trying to disrupt a Tea Party. Zombie has pictures of leftists causing trouble at the San Francisco Tea party.

The statue is just a symbol of bigotry, religious supremacy, spiritual enslavery, and general hatred of anyone who is not white and heterosexual. It’s just a statue. Let it go. If the statue was there in order to forcefully express its message, then the public has the right to rebuke it.
