Top Ten Stupid Things an Ex-Cop Turned Pro-Drugs Has Said

Top Ten Stupid Things an Ex-Cop Turned Pro-Drugs Has Said

Andrew Hawkes / PoliceLink

“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won’t.” -General Patton

Like most cops, I was seriously angered when I heard about a certain Ex-Cop and how he had gone from being a police officer to teaching criminals how to smuggle dope. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, a traitor is a traitor. And a traitor has no friends, only enemies.

So I decided to take the advice of the great General Patton and watch this certain ex-cop’s video just so I could “know thy enemy”. It wasn’t long into the video when my anger turned into disgust as I watched him give advice that was not only stupid, it was down right dangerous. So I felt it was my duty to come up with this “Top Ten List” in hopes that some people out there will think twice before they buy this video.

10. “Never carry more dope with you than you can eat.” – He implies here that if you are smuggling dope and get pulled over by a cop, simply swallow your dope. Most experienced officers have been in a situation where someone has swallowed dope and had to be rushed to the emergency room to have their stomach pumped so they wouldn’t die. Eating and overdosing on dope can kill a person.

9. “All cops are drug addicts…” – He implies here that all cops are addicted to adrenaline. Feeling the rush of busting a criminal can hardly be compared with an illegal drug junkie. It is true that our job requires us to live in an heightened state of awareness but considering what we as police officers are called on to do and then turn right around and call us drug addicts is shameful. That’s really low even for this guy.

8. “Don’t drive too careful” – His point here is that a cop is less likely to pull you over if you are speeding. An estimated 1.2 million people die every year in fatal car accidents. Do us all a favor and keep this horrible piece of advice to yourself. On a side note, this piece of advice is irrelevant because a highly trained interdiction officer is going to pick up on other indicators even if the drug hauler is speeding.

7. “Love is the central theme” – He claims that the whole reason he made this video was out of love. Sorry but after watching the video, it is very evident that he wishes he were still a cop. But since he can’t be a cop, what better way to profit from his knowledge (limited as it is) than to market it to criminals? Profit, not love is the central theme of this certain video.

6. “The war on drugs is pointless because we only catch a small percentage” – we also don’t catch all of the child predators, murderers and thieves, but we dang sure try. This ex-cop seems to think that a lawless state with criminals and drug runners running amuck is the best for society. That is called anarchy and is absurd.

5. “Most Drug Dealers are good people” – is he sure about this one? Is he talking about the same cocaine and methamphetamine dealers who are smuggling their poison all over America costing thousands of lives and millions of dollars every year? I wouldn’t exactly call them “good”. A better word would be “parasite”.

4. “Marijuana is safe” – Once again, this is a flat out lie. The average marijuana joint contains nearly 50% more of the chemical benzopyrene (cancer causing) than the average tobacco cigarette. Marijuana has been proven to cause bronchitis, emphysema, bronchial asthma, and lung cancer. It is also been proven that marijuana is the second most common drug, after alcohol, present in the blood of fatally injured persons. That’s real “safe” now isn’t it? I could go on with more facts but what would be the point? Marijuana is NOT safe.

3. “It is impossible to overdose on marijuana” Tell that to Lake Highlands High School where 18 staff members were rushed to the emergency room after marijuana spiked muffins were delivered as a practical joke.

2. “Big Majority of Cops are Racists” – Maybe this ex-cop knew a few racist cops…big deal. There are bad apples in every profession. Again he is showing his ignorance and very limited knowledge of law enforcement. There are hundreds of thousands of police officer’s in this country, and most of them are not racists but decent men and women of all races just doing their job.

1. “Interdiction officers don’t work in the rain” – He is doing us a favor by telling dopers this myth. In fact, we should let him keep giving this advice!

Police Officer’s all over this country put their lives on the line every day to make our world a safer and better place for us to live. Maybe someday someone close to this ex-cop will be affected by the sinister world of illegal narcotics and he will have a change of heart. This is not a game. This is real and we ARE at war. This is a war on drugs and violence and every good cop has joined this fight to win!

Good luck and stay safe out there and remember that your number one priority is to go home at the end of your shift…

    What do you do when an Ex-Cop turned Pro-Marijuana is living next door as your neighbor and who keeps calling the local cops to bully you and your child over the property line?

    I say it's time that the neighborhood wakes up to drug dealing cops in our midst. Who knows who else this low life has bullied. But as a single mom with a child I am not going to be bullied by this thug and his paranoid behavior has reached new heights - he is calling the local cops on me to try to start a fight over the property line and to use the local cops to bully me and my kid. Enough is enough. If you have these kinds of thugs in your nice neighborhood - they will then turn to drug manufacturing and possibly take out the whole block.

    Our city near the Oregon border has a problem with crystal meth. It would not surprise me if this guy is making it and dealing it. The over-reaching paranoia behavior is a huge clue. Not to mention he now is calling the local cops to bully me.

    Marijuana is safe. Research shows that cannabis actually retards cancer growth, helps with nausea of chemotherapy, relieves aches related to inflammation, and helps with various mood disorders. This is well documented and not propaganda based like most information that drug cops use to justify the trampling of our civil rights. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/19/marijuana-and-cancer_n_189... Drug police rail against drugs because they are PAID well to do so. If they really cared, they'd volunteer.

    Unfortunately cases like these happen and when they happen it's usually tragic. I couldn't possibly understand what drives a police cop to switch sides, drugs are evil and some extra money aren't worth selling your soul. I've seen the destructive power of drugs in a Florida drug rehabilitation center, there are a lot of teens that seek support there.

    First, I think this is a good article, Thanks for sharing LT...

    Second, I think we need to screen who we let on this site a little better, we are starting to get ignorant Low Life idiots who believe retarted ex-cops like this fool, who's brain seems to get slower and slower by the minute from every ounce of dope he smokes. You spend part of your life protecting people, and fighting drug dealers, only to turn around and become no better than the low-life dirtbags that you worked to try and put behind bars. All of these people on here that think this guy is a Saint and a Savior, needs to step into the Shoes of every day Law Enforcement Officers and see what we deal with. Come and see the drug dealers who kill people over their drugs, come and see the people who kill because they are high on dope in the first place, came and see how bad people react, and respond when high. If this is the guy you think is the one you want to praise and follow, you need to get a freaking life.

    This story is about a "Dirty Cop" in every sense of the word.... It is my belief that this is partially why LEOs' fight this battle every freakin day and yes it is and always will be a on going battle. I do respect LEOs' however this POS lost that respect as he is assisting the bad guys. Those who support him know this there are kids and those that aspire to become cops that look up to you as mentors bottom line... THINK ABOUT YOUR FAMILIES AND THE COMMIUNITIES YOU PROTECT

    Much has been said to discredit Barry Cooper, including name calling, but as he stated in his own post, he is not alone in his battle. Some of you LEO's have apparently ingnored the fact that there is a major law enforcement organization supporting Barry in his views. That organization is LEAP. Law Enforcement Against Prohibition Here's their address: http://www.leap.cc Others that support Barry would do well to support this organization also.

    It can't be denied that every drug has its risks, but both cigarettes and alcohol (legal substances) kill more people every year from consumption than marijuana. Taking a few lines from Barry Cooper's video out of context makes for a very weak case indeed.
    Also, you should have had someone proofread your article before you published it. "Police Officer’s all over this country..." Officers is plural, not possessive. But I guess if you were trying to sound ignorant you hit the nail right on the head.

    Yeah Glynn, we actually do pay attention. A few random quotes to support your pro-Marijuana position is not likely to impress us any time soon, especially given the fine examples that you have provided. Until the laws regarding Marijuana possession, use, distribution, etc are changed we will continue to do our jobs and enforce the law. It is not our job to change the law, that is the Ballywick of the politicians and the court so try selling your bill of fare to them, not us!

    The war on drugs is over. Drugs won. Make it legal and you starve the organized crime syndicate. Stop trying to control what stupid people put into their bodies. Let them live and learn at their own expense.

    jwhitfield, your comment highlights a major problem found within insular organizations like law enforcement. The need to maintain close working relations with coworkers and superiors puts intense pressure on individuals to not voice concerns, questions and alternate points of view.

    This creates an inward-looking culture where those who don't blindly accept the beliefs of the group are viewed with intense suspicion and subject to ridicule, even though no member of the group is willing to openly and rationally debate the issues on their merits.

    Ultimately a culture like this will distance the organization from its environment, reducing its efficiency and hampering its ability to change in step with changes in the environment it operates. Alternate points of view on Policelink.com are a good thing as they introduce into the organization opinions and perspectives that can't be raised from within the organization itself.
