Failed Maryjane heist

Forgot my buddy had sent me this article last week

small rural town that i grew up in

https://eastcountytoday.net/update-m...-in-knightsen/


Updated: Man Bound and Beaten Attempting to Steal Marijuana in Knightsen
By ECT -Oct 7, 201938

At around 8:00 pm Saturday, the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff responded to a report of a possible shooting in the area of Holland Tract Road and Delta Road in Knightsen.

While responding, sheriff deputies were advised that a subject was reportedly tied to a tree after having been shot in the head. There was also possibly multiple suspects in a field that had fled the area.

Upon arrival, sheriffs deputies could hear the victim calling for help, but he was unable to move because he was tired up and was injured. There was also a possible second victim in the field nearby who was also injured.

By 9:12 pm, the subject told law enforcement that had been shot in the head. Due to the unknowns in the area with the responsibles possibly still in the field, a BEARCAT (an armored police rescue vehicle) vehicle was requested to the incident to assist law enforcement with recovering the two victims.

By 9:53 pm, the Sheriffs Office reported they had made contact with the victim and were transporting him to medical who was standing by as he was suffering from a head wound, along with lacerations to the neck, ear and arms.



Just after 10:00 pm, law enforcement stated they located a rifle at the scene and were making attempts to reach a second victim.

By 10:17 pm, law enforcement recovered the second victim who was being treated by AMR.

Confirmed agencies involved included the Contra Costa County Sheriffs Office, Oakley Police, CHP, East Contra Costa Fire, and AMR.

No other information was available and this is considered preliminary as of 10:30 pm Saturday



UPDATE – Monday, Oct 7 at 1:30 pm via Sheriffs Office

On Saturday, October 5, 2019, at about 7:33 PM, Deputy Sheriffs responded to a report of a possible shooting in the area of 7000 Holland Tract Road in Knightsen. Deputies searched the area but were not able to find any evidence of a shooting or any gunshot victims.

Approximately 30 minutes later, a person called to say he was hiding in the bushes in a field. He stated his friend was also in the area and may have been shot. Sheriff’s Office STARR helicopter later located the two who were apparently trying to steal marijuana when they were confronted by several unknown men.

An armored SWAT vehicle was used to rescue the two men. One of the them had been bound and severely beaten by the unknown suspect(s), while the second man suffered minor injuries. Both were taken to a local hospital for treatment. Neither of them suffered from a gun-shot wound.

Deputies searched for the suspects but were not able to locate them. The marijuana grow operation was illegal and has been eradicated.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office Investigation Division at (925) 313-2600. For any tips, please email: [email protected] or call 866-846-3592 to leave an anonymous voice message.

Criminals fighting with criminals. Dont see any argument from the “legalize weed” stand point. All that does is reduce the black market. You can Never get rid of it.

You do appreciate the difference between fully vs. selectively legalized, correct?
The second (current) scenario is as or more likely to encourage criminal activity.

If it's still illegal somewhere, there is a criminal profit to be made.
Same reason a $200 AK-47 sells for $1K+ (scarcity + market forces).

EDIT: also, this:

Exactly.

Moral 1: Don't want to get dead or injured, don't steal.
Moral 2: Don't want your grow deleted, get a license.

Legalized marijuana will not eliminate crime. If it was 50 state legal for everyone 18+ you'd have 17 year old kids, and younger, stealing it. You might even have 18 year old kids buying it for kids who cannot legally purchase it. If it would no one would have crimes involving alcohol and underaged drinking wouldn't happen.

It's legal here. The black market still thrives because their stuff is better and half the price of the government sanctioned stores.

Agreed it wouldn't eliminate those nonviolent crimes, but it would eliminate the profit motive for organized and/or violent crimes surrounding pot. If a criminal profit is unavailable, criminals become disinterested. Selective legalization financially rewards bootlegging and theft by providing a criminal profit.

Look at alcohol prohibition and the armed gangs / criminal organizations it allowed to thrive by providing a criminal profit for a commodity that previously only brought an honest profit. Imagine if we'd repealed alcohol prohibition only in some areas - that's what we have now with marijuana laws.

It's the horticultural version of moonshining

Then your government fucked it up.

Although I suspect the real issue is that it hasn't been legal long enough to realize the benefits. It took a few years of tom fuckery here in WA before everything stabilized. Now, the selection is insane, and the prices vary depending on strain and strength anywhere from a lot cheaper than the old black market prices to a bit more. The black market was fucking stupid compared to what we have now.

Clearly another fucking idiot you are. Saying up here is a statement. Nothing more. Just like back east. I don’t assume someone is talking about where I live when they say that. Nothing different here. It makes no difference where I live or where it’s happening. Your level of stupidity have been proven over and over for us all to see.

The problem with a legal sin is it will be blamed regardless of what is at fault. Strip clubs in downtown Reno get blamed for crimes they’re not involved in, but they’re a sinful business and it’s obviously because the strip clubs are downtown. Same with weed. All of a sudden there is a massive increase in overdoses and DUIs related to marijuana. Heck it even poisoned a water supply in some small Colorado town (not really, but google it) and that’s never happened before legal marijuana. Profit or not, the devil’s lettuce won’t be legal without being the problem for some crime.

OK, I argued from your last post toward logic and reason, and now you're looking to argue off into another tangential direction

I'm just going to assume you're stoned out of your freakin' mind and leave you alone now.

But that’s not happening and dope heads are doing their spin job on their reasoning of why it’s still happening.

I agree with you in general. Plus you can throw weed seeds in a ditch in all 50 States and it will grow. The only legal status it should have is: A) Can't smoke it under 18 B) If you sell over $600 of it or whatever your Sales Tax limit it, you have to pay the standard tax on it. That's it.

DUI is a pre-crime and shouldn't exist as a law anyway. An experienced pothead can probably drive better smoking a joint down the highway than a 30 year old soccer mom texting and yelling at her kids.

BUT

Pot got made legal and what did Potheads do? They started turning it into concentrated forms and vaping it. THEN the dumfucks were so cheap, shitty, and stupid, they started buying BLACK MARKET cartidges when LEGAL ONES WERE AVAILABLE!

And what does the .gov do? MAKES FRUIT-FLAVORED TOBACCO VAPING LIQUID ILLEGAL!!

What in the motherfuck.... I fucking hate the United States. I really do. I love the Constitution and the writings behind it, but I fucking hate this shithole country.

I like Pot but I fucking hate Pot Heads. I don't smoke weed because I hate weeders so much. They all deserve to be caned.

Please leave, renounce any citizenship rights you have to the USA and don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out then.

I mean, if it’s such a shithole and all there’s nothing stopping you from leaving—except maybe a felony conviction—other countries don’t want you if you have one. If that is the case, you could probably try someone like Jack Kevorkian.

There’s always more than one way to leave.
