Cops caught on videos eating edibles sue to have video evidence not used in court

Edit: this is a continuation of coverage for this story here - http://www.growery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/783303/page/1

Cops allegedly eat edible marijuana and play darts after raiding a dispensary in Santa Ana, California.

In May, a marijuana dispensary in Santa Ana, California, called Sky High Holistic was raided by the police, who claimed it did not have a valid permit.

It started off like a standard raid — the police banged on the door, ordered customers onto the floor, and proceeded to sniff around.

Then police started to dismantle the security cameras — which was caught on tape by one of the cameras they missed.

The footage goes on to show the officers chumming around, playing darts, and snacking on edibles, before making some unsavory remarks about the dispensary manager, Marla James, who is an amputee.

In one exchange, an officer asks, "Did you punch that one-legged guerita?" and another replies, "I was about to kick her in her f------ nub."

You can see an edited "highlight reel" of that security footage below, courtesy of the Voice of OC.


In mid-June, the dispensary filed a federal lawsuit against the police department for their misconduct, claiming they used excessive forced and caused over $100,000 worth of damage. The Santa Ana Police Department also agreed to conduct an internal investigation.

But now the police officers featured in the video are complaining that the footage shouldn't be part of that investigation, since it was "taken without their knowledge" and is edited to make them look bad. (Matthew Pappas, the lawyer for Sky High Holistic, says he gave the Santa Ana police both an edited, condensed version and a raw, unedited version of the video clips.)

According to The Orange County Register, the police officers filed a lawsuit to "prevent Santa Ana Police Department internal affairs investigators from using the video," arguing that the officers "had a reasonable expectation that their conversations were no longer being recorded."

Of course, it's not impossible that the edited version of the video was an inaccurate representation of what happened in May. Maybe the officers were just snacking on a nonmarijuana treat they brought with them! Maybe "kick her in the nub" is a police code phrase!
But the police department also has the raw, full-length footage to determine what really happened, and arguing that the video violates their "privacy" is about as ridiculous as the cops' behavior in the first place.


SleepAid's Notes: tl;dr : cops raid legal dispensary over the disp refusing to pay 25k bribe, talk shit on amputee patients, get caught on video consuming marijuana, sue to have the video not used as evidence because they didn't expect to get caught.

Signature this, ho.

I expected this...  Police are just a bunch of fucking thugs.  I hope each of them get hard time in Federal for this.  Get the living fuck beat out of them everyday.  The thing is, if they win this case, anybody that has video evidence used against them can use the same excuses as a defense.  Fucking cocksuckers
