I’m sorry that the updates have been so sporadic lately, but I’ve still got a lot of irons on the fire, so I’ve been spreading myself very thin lately. Additionally, I knew that my next update would be somewhat lengthy, so it was difficult to set aside the time to give this update the time that it deserves. The situation is only temporary, and once I’m able to devote more time to this page, I will do just that.
Now ... onto business ...
Mayor Walter Maddox has ruled that Police Chief Steven Anderson did not violate any police policies or break any laws when he ordered Captain Wayne Robertson to give a suspect marijuana after the suspect was already in police custody. While I can’t comment on Chief Anderson’s views on marijuana, I do know that Captain Wayne Robertson (head of WANTF) strongly opposes marijuana use (and legalization or decriminalization).
Captain Wayne Robertson’s actions on August 30 (the date of the above-mentioned incident) don’t exactly jive with his views on marijuana. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Captain Wayne Robertson is a hypocrite – he cares only about results, and then he’ll do whatever mental gymnastics he must do in order to justify his actions in his own mind. Captain Wayne Robertson has no compunction whatsoever about drastically upsetting the course of someone’s life over a little bit of marijuana.
For an example of Captain Wayne Robertson’s hypocrisy, one need only read the official report of the Chief Anderson incident. Keep in mind that – according to WANTF – narcs are used in order to get drugs off the streets. The standard protocol is that someone gets nailed for drugs, then that person is pressured to snitch on the guy above him, then that guy is pressured to snitch on the guy above him, and so on (until WANTF is able to bust a major player, aka a kingpin). When I read the official report, I was very disturbed by the use of what’s called a “reverse buy.” Typically, when a narcotics task force tries to nail a drug dealer, they employ what’s called a “controlled buy” – that is, the narcotics task force BUYS the drugs, in order to get the suppliers of drugs off the streets.
A reverse buy is just the opposite of controlled buy. A more accurate description of a reverse buy would be a “controlled sale,” but that description – because it’s so much more accurate than “reverse buy” – is not the one that WANTF chooses to use (other narcotics task forces are probably guilty of the same thing). When WANTF employs a controlled sale, WANTF is trying to nail the users of drugs, not the suppliers. That is further proof that WANTF does not care about getting drugs off the streets – WANTF cares only about making arrests (quantity, not quality, is what is important to WANTF).
One good thing that has come from Mayor Maddox’s decision to clear Chief Anderson is that it has now been established that it’s sometimes okay to distribute drugs. We know that it’s okay to distribute drugs AFTER a suspect is already in custody (per Mayor Maddox’s decision). Is it also okay to distribute drugs when a girl flirts with a man and induces him into giving her drugs (especially when that girl is doing so at the behest of WANTF)? The officers of WANTF love to take advantage of the fact young men are slaves to their libido, so when a pretty college girl (who happens to be a narc) bats her eyelashes at a young man, and gives him the impression that, while she’s attracted to him, she would be so much more into him, if he were able to get her some drugs, those young men oftentimes acquiesce, and get the young lady the drugs that she desires (only to have their doors kicked in by WANTF a short while after that). We men are especially susceptible to that kind of trickery, because we are hard-wired to be willing to do quite a lot for sex.
Tell me, Captain Robertson, do you make female narcs do more busts than you make male narcs do who are in similar situations? The answer to that question is a resounding “YES.” Why is that? Is it because you know that you can more easily induce men to give in to their desire for sex, so you pimp out college girls, and bust men who are slaves to their libido? Yeah, you’re doing a real service to the people of Tuscaloosa, aren’t you?
WANTF is a government-sponsored pimping agency. Captain Wayne Robertson pressures scared, young, college girls to get drug bust after drug bust after drug bust. WANTF needs to be audited! Once WANTF is audited, and exposed as a government-sponsored pimping agency as a result of the audit, its reputation will be even worse than it already is.
This story came to my attention on Thursday (September 14), but I'm only posting it now because I wanted to be certain that someone from WANTF (my nemesis's name has come up, but I want to be fair to him before I level an accusation) was actually guilty of drug distribution. It turns out that a lot of "higher ups" know about this incident, and a complaint has been -- or will be -- filed.
I'll leave the details to the news reporters; however, what essentially happened -- it appears -- is that someone from WANTF either gave marijuana to a suspect, or he arranged for marijuana to be given to a suspect, in exchange for that suspect's surrendering to the police.
To be fair, we are talking about a small amount of marijuana, but WANTF has devastated people's lives over "just a little bit of weed." To say that WANTF has devastated lives might seem like hyperbole, but when one takes into account the financial impact that even a small drug bust can have on somebody (attorney fees, fines, lost wages, damage to property [since the officers of WANTF do not care about how badly your property is damaged in a drug raid]), the impact on one's reputation that a drug bust has, the criminal record that can follow someone after a drug arrest, or even the impact of becoming a narc on one's psyche (some people go into a deep depression after becoming a narc), the term "devastate" fits like a glove (well, not if you're OJ Simpson).
Because WANTF is trusted to enforce the law, they (the officers of WANTF) must be held to a higher standard than the rest of us. If we were in Colorado, there would be no scandal here, but we aren't in Colorado, and the drug laws in Alabama are what they are, thus someone at WANTF appears to have broken the law.
It could be that the officer of WANTF was just obeying orders, but that defense didn't work at the Nuremberg trials and it shouldn't hold water in this instance either. If the offending officer of WANTF were John Q Citizen, his door would be kicked in and he would be brow-beaten, yelled at, and verbally abused, but apparently, someone at WANTF believes that the rules do not apply to him.
According to how WANTF operates, whoever distributed the marijuana is a menace, and he must be taken off the streets, because all drugs are bad, no matter what, and anybody who is involved in distributing or using drugs must be HARSHLY dealt with. The offending officer from WANTF can say that he was coerced into breaking the law, but how many men have been coerced into breaking the law by some pretty girl who flirts with a man in order to get him to give her drugs, because that girl is a narc who is in turn being coerced by WANTF to get as many busts as possible in order for her to "work off" her charges?
WANTF, you are completely tone-deaf. You offered me a deal that would have led to my charges eventually being dropped if I'd take down my website, but that line of thinking is indicative of just how tone-deaf you are. The problem isn't my website -- your tactics are the problem! If you all didn't run roughshod over people, my website wouldn't have the appeal to people that it does. Why don't you try behaving a little better? Then nobody will even care about my website, and your problem will be solved.
We have big plans for the very near future, but we need a graphic designer to help bring that vision to fruition. If you (or someone you know) can do graphic design work, then please email me.
We're going to do more billboards (I've got some funny billboard ideas that I'd love to deploy), bumper stickers, beer koozies, and t-shirts. I don't plan on charging anything for the bumper stickers, beer koozies, t-shirts, so I'm going to absorb that cost myself. That being the case, if someone wants to chip in with his or her expertise in the graphic design department, it would be much appreciated.
It would be great if we can get the ball rolling on this early in the week.
Hello everyone. I apologize for the lack of updates, but I've been busy moving and I've had several other obligations that kept me from away from updating the site. There are several more updates to come, as we have a lot to say about West Alabama Narcotics Task Force (WANTF).
Judging by the overwhelmingly positive reactions I got from people on game day, I'd say that the billboard (pictured below) was quite a hit. Stay tuned -- this is going to be an especially entertaining football season, because we've got more provocative billboards coming your way.
