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.
