Boston Police Commissioner William Evans:
“A lot of home invasions seem to revolve around someone smoking marijuana, young college kids tying to supplement their income,” he said. “We get a half-dozen every year where they invite regular city kids over and next thing you know, their door is getting knocked down and they are getting robbed.”
Boston’s police commissioner says there are SIX home invasions a year in Boston that MIGHT, have been related to marijuana. But now because carrying less than one ounce is legal in Mass.EVERYONE should panic and brace themselves for a major crime wave!
This is known as predictive policing, fear-mongering B*llsh*t! It’s kind of like police chiefs claiming there’s an increase in mass shootings nationwide and America should get rid of the Second Amendment.
What Evans isn’t telling a gullible public is the International Assoc. of Chiefs of Police are against legalizing marijuana. Would you be surprised to learn they have close ties to DHS? Click here,here & here to find out more.
In Mass. anyone who is found with less than an ounce can be ticketed. Which is a way for the state to make money off of legalized marijuana. Soon there will three medical marijuana dispensaries in Boston.
Boston mayor Martin Walsh also claims crime will rise if pot is legalized:
I just think it would be a mistake to legalize marijuana in Massachusetts,” said Walsh. “I’ve seen too many lives ruined by starting to smoke weed and then, eventually, going to other types of drugs.”
Mayor Walsh says he will oppose any ballot question that legalize marijuana.
Mass. Governor Charlie Baker, Attorney General Maura Healey, and Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley all oppose legalization, but none appears keen to lead the charge against the expected 2016 ballot question to legalize marijuana for recreational use.
What the public isn’t being told is our justice system doesn’t want to lose the money that pot arrests bring to each city, town and state:
According to the FBI one marijuana arrest occurs every 42 SECONDS in the U.S.
According to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting data, there were a total of 1.5 million drug arrests made nationwide in 2011, and out of those arrests, about 750,000 were for marijuana (just under half, 49.5 percent) — that’s one marijuana arrest every 42 seconds and one drug arrest every 21 seconds in the U.S
How much revenue is generated by marijuana arrests? Our government keeps that a secret but an educated guess is in the hundreds of millions if not billions after court costs, attorney fees, jail, probation etc., are figured in.
Law enforcement is so afraid they’ll lose revenue generated from legalized marijuana that the DEA got NINE former chiefs to oppose it.
At least one organization called Law Enforcement Against Prohibition which is made up of former law enforcement agents, cops, police chiefs supports legalizing marijuana and ending America’s war on drugs.
