I'll start by giving a recap of what I've already mentioned. On Thursday, March 23, I drove around a mobile billboard exposing Crystal Rogeri as a narc. The following morning (at 8:30), West Alabama Narcotics was waiting for me outside of my residence. They handcuffed me, in front of my landlord and neighbors (they also behaved similarly when they took me to my office), then they took me to their headquarters, and kept me in a room until the District Attorney's office ordered them to let me go (it's worth noting that West Alabama Narcotics does not have a good relationship with our DA, Hays Webb, probably because Hays Webb understands and respects the law, whereas West Alabama Narcotics obviously believes that it is above the law).
Not only did West Alabama Narcotics illegally detain me for over 2 hours, but Captain Robertson (the head of West Alabama Narcotics) said that they were going to revoke my bail (and make me sit in jail for at least a year, while I await trial) and they were going to charge me with a felony because I had the audacity to exercise my First Amendment right of free speech. To the officers of West Alabama Narcotics, the US Constitution means nothing! Their appalling behavior didn't end there, however. Oh ... it got MUCH worse from there, because they decided to pick on a completely innocent college girl who had done NOTHING wrong.
While I was being illegally detained (for over 2 hours), Captain Robertson (who owns Catfish Heaven, by the way, so don't eat at that dive) decided to RAID someone's house because that person was guilty of lending me his truck! A friend of mine got raided because he lent me his truck. That friend, however, was out of state at the time, but one of his roommates -- an innocent college girl, who doesn't do drugs -- was there. West Alabama Narcotics found a tiny bit of marijuana in the apartment, and they told my friend's roommate that she was in serious trouble, and that she would have to narc in order to get her charges dropped. That is beyond the pale!
That girl knows nothing about drugs -- she was a completely innocent bystander. For that matter, my friend who lent me his truck was a completely innocent bystander, and so was I. West Alabama Narcotics was ready to force that girl into putting her life in danger by being a narc, so that she could do their dirty work, because she is a roommate of the person who lent me a truck. It's worth noting that, a narc who knows nothing about drugs is probably a VERY obvious narc, which is sure to cause mental red flags to go off in the head of a dealer, which would have made her job of being a narc especially dangerous.
I offered to get the girl a lawyer, at my expense, but it appears that someone at West Alabama Narcotics knows that what they did was very messed up, because they have not contacted her about "working" for them.
Well, I've got news for the officers at West Alabama Narcotics: I'm contacting people about what you did to that innocent girl (I'm contacting important people who can put you all in your place). You all should be ashamed of yourselves!
Once Captain Robertson let me go (against his wishes), he then proceeded to lecture me by telling me that what I did with the billboard was legally right, but it was morally wrong. Oh really? The head of West Alabama Narcotics wants to lecture me about what's morally right??? Is it morally right to scare the hell out of college kids so that you can get them to do your dirty work (at great risk to their personal safety), allowing you and your associates to go all cowboy and kick down people's doors? Is it morally right for you to threaten to ruin the life of a young college girl simply because she knows a guy who lent his truck to a guy who ran a mobile billboard that you don't like?
Was it morally right when the former head of West Alabama Narcotics stole over $125,000? Was it morally right for West Alabama Narcotics to kick down doors and arrest 74 people -- 61 of whom were UA students -- for things as minor as having a tiny amount of marijuana (in 2013)? The majority of those arrested had nothing more than marijuana in their possession. Not only that, but many of the charges against those college kids were manufactured by the behavior of the confidential informants (narcs) who were working for West Alabama Narcotics (in order to get their charges reduced or dropped). West Alabama Narcotics puts immense pressure on their snitches to get results -- pressure to the point that they pimp out college girls to offer sex for drugs.
The behavior of confidential informants was bad enough, that many of those who were arrested and charged had their charges dropped. You would think that the officers of West Alabama Narcotics would be ashamed by the infamous 2013 raid, but you'd be wrong. Instead, the officers of West Alabama Narcotics were actually proud of the results! How detached from reality can a group of people be?
As if 74 arrests isn't bad enough, there's no telling how many arrests were off the books, because some of those who were targeted agreed to be narcs. That being the case, that 2013 raid is even worse -- probably much worse -- than it appears to be.
Captain Wayne Robertson (there will be on him later), and anyone who works for West Alabama Narcotics, has a lot of nerve talking to anyone about morality.
