Police smell meth, raid home, kill
80-year-old man, find no meth

Daily Caller, by Robby Soave

Original Article

Posted By:Up2Here, 10/16/2013 10:40:00 AM

The widow of an 80-year-old man who was shot dead by police during a drug raid on their home is suing for $50 million. On the night of June 27th, Los Angeles County deputies raided the home of Eugene Mallory and Tonya Pate. Authorities claim they had probable cause to search the premises because they could smell chemicals used to make methamphetamine while standing outside the house. Police suspected Mallory of being involved in an illegal meth ring. Mallory was asleep in bed

FTA: Age does not preclude somebody from being aggressive toward deputies....

And having a badge does not preclude somebody from murdering an old man in his own home.

It´s Kalifornia, a socialist police state. So what. In a sane world I do believe the cops might have more than a little problem on their hands. Sounds as if murder charges are in order. As to the pot in the kids room; if there were 200 pounds of it I could see calling it a drug operation. An ounce or so is probably less than what Gov. Moonbeam uses in an afternoon.

FTA: Police found no meth, nor evidence of a meth operation, inside the house. They did find marijuana — in Pate’s son’s room. The sheriff’s department insists that the marijuana vindicates the raid. “There was a drug operation that was certainly going on in this house,” said Whitmore.

The fascist War on Drugs strikes again. So possession of a small amount of marijuana--if the amount had been resale large, we´d have been informed of it--by the victim´s son is a "drug operation," worthy of murdering an old man who probably didn´t know his son had a dime bag of pot? By the way, what was a middle aged man doing living at his elderly parents´ home?

The "middle aged" son (no age given; someone else here posted him as a "kid") is probably living with his "parents" (woman is not identified as his mother, has a different surname from father) because he can´t afford to live on his own in this economy. It´s common practice, not unusual.

They smelled meth.

Having never ingested an illegal drug, I´m no expert, but I´m pretty sure that marijuana doesn´t smell anything like meth or the the mixture of chemicals used to manufacture meth.

I hope the widow wins her lawsuit. I hope she takes LA to the cleaners. Big time!

Almost every day we see over-zealous cops taze or shoot or manhandle an innocent citizen citizen because some stupid desk clerk transposed a house number on a warrant.

I used to trust cops and have respect for them. Right now, if I had a problem and needed a cop, I´m not sure I would call 911.

BTW--- Despite the clear protections of the 4th amendment regarding ´unreasonable search and seizure´ and the resultant requirement that a search warrant NAME the items being searched for, there is a long list of items which are not subject to these restraints.
The "War on Drugs" has corrupted our law enforcement agencies in much the same way as ´Prohibition´ did as it laid the cornerstone for organized crime in America. (OK, Chicago)

You can´t smell MJ unless it is burning. Even a kid could tell you that.

What those idiots were probably smelling was a serious user of Ben Gay or some other ointment to ease the sore muscles of age.

Proof that growing old isn´t for sissies. The cops will shoot you for it now.

From the Illinois Attorney General´s website: "Making meth produces powerful odors that may smell like ammonia or ether. These odors have been compared to the smell of cat urine or rotten eggs."

So if cats have recently sprayed in your yard or there´s a sewer problem nearby, the cops can break into your house and murder you in your bed? How´s that war on drugs working out for everyone?

If that is the case, then these deputies MAY have smelled meth, but obviously didn´t bother to confirm which unit it was coming from.

Isn`t it ironic that police depts in many municipalities will wait out a hostage situation for days on the pretense that nobody gets hurt, yet more and more we are hearing horror stories of police breaking down doors of innocent people at all hours of the night and someone ends up getting killed for no reason.

What ever happened to getting a search warrant and then knocking on the front door? This could have been handled during daylight hours and the police could easily have found out who lived in the house. This is nothing more than murder by the LAPD.

It sounds as though the LAPD is on drugs...

Meth and crack and so forth make people aggressive and unreasonable...
They lose touch with normal reality.
Even bath salts are notorious for that, and so is Ecstasy.

Cops are known to have lots of stress and many common problems like other poeple.
And they have access to drugs seized as evidence... and to drug bribes from
street perps who buy them off.
Time to frequently drug test our local coppers... they are armed,
potentially dangerous, and cannot be trusted.

As the astute observers have noted here, this whole account sounds like it was
just plain dead wrong in so many ways, including the obvious medical marijuana
possibility.

Sarah Palin would gin up support if she checked the facts here and possibly
jumped right in on this ridiculously bad example by the coppers.

Finish the article and look at the other recent incidents listed that make
LAPD look like idiotic incompetent unfit crackheads.

Are they all wearing their uniforms down their ass now?
And wearing hoodies to avoid being identified?
Are all these cop-perps on suspension pending an investigation?
Time for IR... Internal Review...
or whatever the appropriate term is.

Where is Eric Holder, the AG, and his Just Us Department now... ?
No justice for old white guys?

The victim´s civil rights were violated, this is a human rights outrage...
Where is our Great Gummint now?

Oh, it´s golf time... forgot...
Eighteen holes, followed by a Reggie Wedgie at the 19th Hole...

Los Angeles County deputies are not LAPD. Of course, they have a bad reputation too.

I´m shocked though, that they actually admitted there was no meth, rather than planting some. It could be a sign of either improvement, or realizing there will never be personal consequences to killing people in their homes.

Given the old man had the weapon:

Now, when you are asleep and someone invades your peace, you must wake up and determine (without your glasses and in a sleep-fog), whether the intruders are police or, (the more likely) home invasion. This must be done apparently, BEFORE you bring your weapon to bear. Guess wrong... well, either guess is wrong. If it´s the cops but they didn´t identify and you can´t see too well, pull your weapon and... bang x 6 - your dead. If it´s a home invasion and you don´t immediately have your weapon at hand, you and your loved-ones are assaulted and possibly dead. Hmmmm... which to choose, certain death at the hands of the cops, or whatever Obama´s sons choose to dish out (and you know they´d rape the old woman)?

Last week, the Indiana state legislature passed further reductions in corporate business tax rates that, within eight years, will establish the Hoosier State as having the lowest business tax rate in the country. Indiana Governor Mike Pence has said that he plans to sign it into law. The bill will lower the corporate income tax rate each year through 2022, when the 4.9% rate will become the lowest corporate rate in the U.S. It also provides three options for local governments to lower the business personal property tax. This is good news for Indiana, which is rapidly becoming a pro-growth

CHICAGO- With a hunger to reclaim the governor´s office, Republican voters set out Tuesday to shake up Illinois´ Democratic-dominated political order, energized by candidates´ talk of taking on unions, unseating "career politicians" and righting the state´s troubled finances. The talk at polling stations from the Chicago suburbs in the north to the St. Louis suburbs in the southwest was of reversing the state´s indebtedness and keeping businesses and jobs from leaving Illinois. Describing their desire for change, people used phrases like "break the system." To many, the governor´s race was shaping up as a potentially transformative battle over union influence, with some voters

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
