Up Yours, Sherlock

A spliff does not constitute death. This is something that should be brought to the attention of such idiots as the Nicolaou man - he who wears white socks and was trained in Bulgaria and subsequently employed by bCyBC.

We recently heard of the drug squad's great triumph of nabbing a man with 20 kilos of grass upon his return from Amsterdam via Athens. The story is as fishy as a portion of frozen squid. The bullshit story goes as follows: A man left Cyprus with no baggage. Upon his return he picked up two pieces of baggage at Larnaca-Hermes airport. The cretin of a drug squad chief had the following to say on the matter, which was reported by the genius of a Mega reporter:
"the man in question left a few days ago with no baggage. He then returned via Athens and picked up two pieces of baggage [which contained 20 kees of badly needed grass] at Larnaca airport. He was spotted by the undercover agent when he obviously started looking nervous. He then picked up 2 pieces of baggage and tried to leave the airport"
So, the policeman was there for at least a few days. He made mental note of everyone leaving without baggage. After a few sleepless days he noticed the same man picking up 2 suitcases which happened to contained 20 Kg of gear. The policeman in question deserves much more than a medal. No one squealed. The police did their job and our children were spared a certain death.

In other, less triumphant police news, we had the case of a woman who had her driving licence suspended. She then went out for a drive and crashed into another car, killing the driver. The police spokesman's quote on stae TV: "seeing as the victim's wife survived, she may well tell thousands of people - if not more - via the media in her country, about what happened to them and people will choose not to come to Cyprus"

Give me a fucking break! Gimme more grass!

So are you saying the person didn't have 20 kilos of grass with him?

I don't know what happened but isn't possible that this guy was being followed, (our police might have many flaws but they do know what is going on the problem is when they decide to act) therefore they knew he left without luggage and he returned with his precious commodity.

Yes grass does not kill you but so what? It breaks the law, especially when it is 20 kilos, (surly for personal use right?)and the law must be upheld.

We complain when the law is not observed, now we complain when the law is implemented?

Sceptic Anonymous,

There was probably a guttersnipe involved. Of course the police press department gave the credits to the policeman, hence to themselves. Typical.

Good morning guys

@sceptic:

The man most certainly had 20 Kg of gear. But, as GI hints, the police here were told about it. Either by a snitch or subsequent to a baggage check either in Amsterdam or Athens. The police ought to take it easy on their self congratulatory attitude. Remember the case of a policeman being congratulated by the police chief for returning a wallet that had been lost? 'Nuff said?

As to the intended use of the marijuana, I believe it was going to be used to make the biggest spliff ever and thus get Cyprus another Guinness Book of World Records entry.

the police work on tip offs.
especially in the airport situations.

what about the dutchman they arrested last week who had 15 kilos hidden in a second compartment of his bag, sealed in with coffee beans to keep the scent off the dogs? How wiley of our police to pick him up from the hundreds of passengers arriving just because he was 'acting suspiciously'!

and i'd rather the police focused their energies on things like, oh, i don't know, racist attacks on students, rapes, and abused cabaret workers, rather than patting themselves on the back for arresting a man for being in possession of marijuana.

in response to sceptic, it's a question of priorities i find.

zappa, indeed, especially when you think about what the cops could do with the weed they confiscate. the mind boggles at the possibilities.
