South Jersey cops think they are being hilarious, in much the same way every bully ever thought they were when they taunt and instigate their victims.
A cliche police internet trope shared in a social media post uses poor attempt at humor to illustrate how little reverence law enforcement has for the lives it has needlessly destroyed.
Yeah, this old trick again.
“We have your weed, come get it. lol”
Yeah, that’s real funny. It is very hilarious how your profession has destroyed millions of lives to profit from the prohibition of an otherwise basically harmless plant. Real knee slapper, and totez original.
Members of the Absecon Police Department have sparked a lively discussion on their Facebook page after posting a picture of a baggie of marijuana and inviting its intended buyer to stop by the station.
The post, which appeared Sunday afternoon, shows a Ziploc bag of weed bearing the name “Candy Kush,” a playful gesture meant to reinforce the fact that marijuana is illegal in New Jersey except for prescribed medicinal purposes.
Facebook users, likely never expecting the post would originate from their local police department, decided to have some fun, praising the account for its sense of humor and in some cases making offers to buy the drug.
Recreational marijuana remains illegal in New Jersey, but a Rutgers-Eagleton poll conducted in June 2015 found that 58 percent of New Jersyans support the idea of legalizing, taxing and regulating marijuana for adults.
On the other hand, despite several recent bipartisan attempts to advance marijuana decriminalization legislation, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been staunchly opposed to liberalizing the state’s position.
Marijuana possession arrests occur every 22 minutes in New Jersey, according to advocacy group New Jersey United for Marijuana Reform. Nationally, arrests for marijuana possession are made every 41 seconds.
With no regard for the will of the people they “serve”, New Jersey cops continue to violate the humanity of the citizens by enforcing senseless and destructive laws, while at the same time using social media to mock the very principles of the people of that state.
This isn’t a cute story about fuzzy cops trying to enforce sensible laws with a sense of humor. It is the story of those whose self-interest and delusion is so great that they don’t even care that the legal system which sustains them destroys their own communities senselessly. This is madness grinning through a violent sneer.
