Prayers for the victim’s families and the officer who was forced to kill another human being.

I’m a bit confused. The article states the suspect was an illegal marijuana grower. However, the article states they found poppy plants. I thought that poppy plants were used for another drug. Are marijuana plants referred to as “poppy” plants?

No, opium is extracted from poppy plants. When Mr. Melo was killed by this guy the story said it was marijuana but I wouldn’t swear which plant he was growing now. Unless it was both the reporter doesn’t know of what he writes.

That is what I thought, Jazusamo! There’s a huge difference between opium and pot (both illegal but still different). Either way... this guy won’t kill or hurt anyone else!

I wonder if Mr Bassler was armed with an ObamaGun obtained thru Fast + Furious.

I hear there’s so many, you can find them just laying around.

Good! I lived in that area for a number of years and it was full of creepy nutcases like him, many of whom made their living in the drug “ business.”

They weren’t crazy, strictly speaking, but they sure lived on another planet in their heads. This guy was apparently cultivating a pot farm and a few hundred opium poppies, so he was sane enough to do that.

I think his father said he was crazy because he was hoping the killer would get off on an insanity plea, but fortunately, we don’t have to witness the spectacle of this guy mocking the justice system. Justice has already been done.
