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?

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

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes.

When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture. But not everyone has accepted it. Cliven Bundy’s armed standoff with the National Park

At a petite 5’3’’, Sage Santangelo may not look like a combat fighter at first glance. But the female second lieutenant has never let that hold her back from pursuing her dream of becoming an infantry officer in the Marine Corps. Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams. But when she joined the Marines, Santangelo found the playing field changed; she was segregated into female-only training units and as a woman, was relegated to less strenuous physical training than her male counterparts.

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said.
