    You don't seem to get past the marijuana charges but just in case you didn't read the entire article, let me point out the FEDERAL crime here. Counterfeit money is a felony at the FEDERAL level. So do I think the cops should be ashamed of themselves, or that the rest of America should be "appalled" with the cops behavior? Not one bit. You are absolutely correct that there are better things for cops to focus on, other than JUST marijuana. Things like forged monies. Now where have I heard about cops seizing fake money. UMMMM...Oh yea I remember. RIGHT HERE!!!!

    Anyone else appalled at the behavior of law enforcement in this case?

    Arresting minorities for marijuana is ridiculous. There are much bigger problems that deserve these law enforcement resources.
