Police not getting the notion of serve and protect.

Gilbert Police Storm Home, Seize Two Ounces of Marijuana From Card-Holding Medical Pot Patient. Really.

Twenty Gilbert police officers, some in masks and riot gear, stormed a home last week after receiving a tip that the owner was in possession of an ounce of marijuana.

The homeowner, Ross Taylor, is a card-carrying patient under Arizona’s new medical-marijuana law, which allows people to qualify to possess up to 2 1/2 ounces of pot legally.

A satellite TV installer saw the cannabis in a closet and informed the police. Within hours, without investigation, the police put together a military-style home invasion for an ounce of pot.

Why is it that some police are so pathetically eager to save the world from a couple ounces of marijuana that they’re willing to completely ignore the law to do so?
