If you don’t follow Legal Juice on Twitter (@LegalJuice), the bird gets it. And lest you feel complacent because of Mr. Wile E. Coyote’s track record, rumor has it that he is ending his longstanding relationship with Acme for “a more reliable supplier.” When asked if maybe he’s the problem, not the equipment, Mr. Coyote maintained his characteristic silence.

To call this pair “smugglers” would raise the ire of smugglers everywhere.  As reported by North Country Now (Potsdam, New York):

Two Canadians were charged with possession of 75 pounds of marijuana Thursday and jailed on $25,000 bail, according to state police.

Troopers charged Chantal L. Mondon, 35, and Dat-Shing Chao, 26, both of Laval Quebec, for drug possession.

Following a vehicle stop made by United States Border Patrol in the town of Massena on a 2014 Ford Focus, Mondon and Chao were found in possession of approximately 75 pounds of marijuana.

Both Mondon and Chao were arrested and charged with first-degree criminal possession of marijuana.

Who would notice 75 pounds [!] of pot? Certainly not someone trained to look for contraband. Or someone with a nose! Here’s the source, which includes mug shots.

If you can believe the police shows and movies, the worst jobs are probably desk jobs and traffic. This unit ain’t nothing like that! As reported by countercurrentnews.com:

A police officer in Arkansas recently lost his job after he exposed a massive scheme that allowed officers to have sex with prostitutes and then arrest them for servicing the undercover cops.

So much for having your cake and eating it too.

The way that Former Fort Smith Police Department Sgt. Don Paul Bales’ department had it set up, cops would “prove” that they weren’t really police officers, by having sex with prostitutes. The cop who had just broken the law himself would then follow up by arresting the women.

Now, a lawsuit that was obtained by local KFSM, reveal that an officer was fired for exposing the twisted police work.

The suit was just filed in Arkansas’s Sebastian County Circuit Court. The officer in question says he just wants his job back, as he did nothing but expose criminal activity among fellow officers.

This all started when Bales received a photo of an affidavit that had been filed back in April of 2014. That affidavit stated that an undercover cop in the “Street Crimes Unit” had engaged in what it termed “misconduct.”

money

Really, if you’re going to commit an armed robbery, with 2 other people (!), you can’t do any better than this? Rolls of pennies? As reported by wmbfnews.com (Myrtle Beach, SC):

Three males in hooded sweatshirts and masks robbed a convenience store in Horry County at gunpoint Monday night, making off with $250 in cash and 20 rolls of pennies, according to authorities.

Horry County Police responded to the Market Express convenience store at 490 E. Highway 9 at about 10 p.m. in reference to the armed robbery. The three males entered the store and told the clerk to lay down on the floor. The suspects were in and out of the store in less than three minutes, the police report states. There were no injuries reported.

According to Lt. Raul Denis with HCPD, there may have been a similar incident in Calabash about an hour before.

With an operation like this, they’ll be caught in a matter of weeks, if not sooner. Here’s the source.

You go out drinking, and shit happens. But four times? Fuhgeddaboutit. As reported in the The Police Blotter in The Brooklyn Paper [88th Precinct (Fort Greene–Clinton Hill)]:

Some careful crooks emptied the pockets of a man sleeping on the Q train on Dec. 13, according to police.

The groggy 43-year-old straphanger said he was drinking at a bar in the Midtown section of Manhattan and boarded a Brooklyn-bound Q train at 11:30 pm on Dec. 12.

He fell asleep, and did not wake up until the train was heading back toward Manhattan, then exited at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station, the authorities reported.

He discovered that his wallet, cellphone, and bottle of anxiety pills were all missing from his pockets, cops recounted. The same thing has happened to the victim four times since 2007, officers added.

Doh!

You know how when you watch TV shows about jail or prison, the joints are filled with contraband? Well, it’s true. Some prisons have such a problem with prisoners using cell phones that they have to jam them! As for drugs in the joint, here’s an example, as reported by North Country Now (Potsdam, NY).

St. Lawrence County Sheriff deputies say they charged a St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility inmate with felonies for allegedly selling drugs while locked up.

Matthew J. Hough is charged with fourth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and first-degree promoting prison contraband, both felonies.

Deputies said he was allegedly found in possession of a narcotic drug and allegedly provided it to other inmates.

Hough was arraigned in Canton Town Court and sent back to the jail, deputies said.

Why would your appearance require that you are always on your best behavior, or at least on the right side of the law? The answer will soon be abundantly clear.  As reported by The Northwest Florida Daily News:

Kenneth Dewain Parker was in an argument with a woman on Oct. 26, according to the arrest report. Parker was in an argument with the victim when he allegedly hit her in the face.

The victim also told Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputies that she had bruises on her arms where Parker “forcefully grabbed her,” the report said. A witness, who had called deputies, described Parker hitting the victim.

Parker was gone when deputies arrived, according to the report. An automatic alarm went off at 1:03 a.m. on Oct. 27 at Thumbs Up Food Store in Fort Walton Beach because the glass had been “shattered.”

There’s more, but it doesn’t sound too unusual, right? So why does Mr. Parker have to behave like an angel? You need to see his photo. You’ll find it, and the source, by clicking here.

It’s kind of like the “blue flu” with one big difference – these officers are showing up for work, but with a twist. As reported by Reuters:

Belgians who drive a bit over the speed limit, forget to buckle their seat belts or park illegally can breathe easier this week as police turn a blind eye in protest against plans to raise their retirement age.

The country’s police are up in arms over plans by the incoming government to raise their pension age to 62 from 58 as part of its efforts to cut the federal budget. Some 40,000 officers demonstrated against it in Brussels two weeks ago.

They began the next step in their protest on Tuesday by going easy on minor infractions for the next week.

“Clearly this wouldn’t cover major offences, such as reckless or drunken driving,” said Vincent Houssin, deputy chairman of the 18,000-member VSOA police union.

Police unions say the officers will continue to uphold traffic safety, but for a week at least the state budget will not get the benefit of their work.

Sure, 58 seems young to many folks, like most Americans. But an extra 4 years?  That’s a mighty steep jump. Here’s the source.

This guy could not have made it any easier for the police to bust him for driving while intoxicated. As reported by  The Hunterdon County Democrat (New Jersey):

The incident happened on Friday, July 18, just before midnight on Route 31 north near Echo Lane. Patrolman John Tiger saw a 2013 Ford Mustang stopped on the northbound shoulder with its hazard lights activated. Upon approaching the car, Tiger saw Rafael Genao, 35, of Washington sleeping in the driver’s seat while the engine was running, police said.

Genao’s right hand was on the gear shifter, the car was in neutral, and the emergency brake was on. When the officer woke Genao, Genao de-activated the emergency brake and the car rolled backward, hitting Tiger’s patrol vehicle, police said. After several attempts, Tiger was able to get Genao to park his vehicle, turn it off and hand over the keys, police said.

Um. Er. Uh. Well … sorry? Fuhgeddaboutit.

Tiger detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage on Genao’s breath, determined that he was intoxicated and arrested him. At headquarters, Genao refused to provide samples of his breath for chemical testing to determine the content of alcohol in his blood, police said.

So …

Tiger charged him with driving while intoxicated, refusal to submit to a breath test and careless driving. His vehicle was towed from the scene and he was released to the custody of a responsible adult.

911 emergency

Just fleeing from the police almost never works. This gent had something else in mind. As reported by The Daytona Beach News-Journal:

A man who ran from a traffic stop made phony 9-1-1 calls to try and throw off pursuing deputies and police dogs, an arrest report shows.

Interesting idea, but doomed to fail.

Herbert Foster, 31, of Holly Hill, was charged with making false 9-1-1 calls. He was also charged with a drug offense after cocaine was found on him, resisting an officer without violence and driving with a suspended license. He was released from the Volusia County Branch Jail after posting $4,500 bail, court records show.
