Retired Military Translator's Home Reportedly Raided in DEA Mix-Up

"As soon as I opened the door, somebody grabbed me and took me outside and put me on the grass," Tossa said. "The first thing I thought was they were terrorists who want to kill me because I served in Iraq."

The DEA agents were executing a search warrant.

“I kept asking, what’s going on?” he said. “And they held my neck to the ground so I can’t talk.”

According to the report, the DEA was executing a search warrant for Tossa’s landlord’s son, who apparently uses Tossa’s one-story house’s address for mailing.

“Before they raid any house, they should have more information,” Tossa said. “Not rumors.”

Brent,

Good officers who follow Peelian principles will always be honored here on Free Republic by all intellectually honest conservative posters.

Thank you for your service, and for every action you take to combat bad cops.

Can’t be worse than the brain power that actually believes this country is “drug free.” That’s so ridiculous that it’s hard to believe that any adult with a working brain would say it.

As a police officer these stories enrage and sadden me.

brent13a, thank you for your service both to our country and your community. I work with the police on a daily basis and the vast, vast majority are hard working and conscientious professionals. I have seen officers show incredible kindness to all types of people.

Unfortunately, I have also worked with the burned out, the lazy and a couple who were pure evil. A couple of our best friends’ daughter was murdered by her husband who was our community's police chief. I also worked with a police officer who turned out to be a child molester and I believe was probably responsible for the suicide death of one of the most promising young men my wife and I ever met.

In both of these cases there were warning signs that might/should have tipped us off. I hope that we have learned enough to intervene before tragedy strikes again in the future. But I fear that there will always be a few that will slip through the cracks, especially when our union dues are often used to keep the bad ones on the job. This goes for firefighters and police officers.

It is not right when the actions of a very few stain the reputations of the vast majority who are honorable good people who work hard, sacrifice, and give their all for their fellow citizens.

Aside from that we need to toughen our drug laws so pushers get tried and hanged. This would be hard drug pushers. Marijuana sellers I would exile from the United States for 5 years

Great, we can become another Iran.

No kidding. Hell, it says in the mailbox block in my townhouse complex that only residents of the townhouse (and you have to leave the postal guy a note saying another last name lives there) receive mail, yet other mail from the previous owner slips through. Hope she wasn’t a drug dealer!

You are assuming that the renter knew the landlord's son was using that address. Since makinmg assumptions is the best you've ever done we shouldn't be too hard on you.

I am not making much of an assumption when the news item (which I assume you read) states:

"Tossa’s landlord’s son, who apparently uses Tossa’s one-story house’s address for mailing."

I further assume that you understand what mail is and how it works.

But since you need to include a personal slight in your response to me - let me inform you I really don't care much considering you are a long term (a life time really) drug abuser who brags about "40 years of pot smoking experience".

If you think you are going to continue a personal vendetta against me on this forum without me throwing in your face what a disgrace you are, then you are as crazy as people can safely assume you to be for your admitted long term drug usage.

The next time you light up remember it, and stuff that in your pipe and smoke it.

I sure do. Thanks for proving that assumptions are all you have to offer too.

Many people have mailing addresses registered in their name but don't get any mail there anymore. Not everyone follows the rules and has only one mailing address. Some people just notify everyone who needs to know, except the Post Office, that they have a new address.

You might want to wake your single braincell up.

The news item you are supposed to have read said of the suspect:

"Tossa’s landlord’s son, who apparently uses Tossa’s one-story house’s address for mailing.

Note the word "uses".

As in: active use.

Note the word "mailing".

As in: the operating mail system.

You have to be one serious Cop Hater to attempt the twisting of reality to suit your own warped perspective of the world. But we know where that comes from don't we?

I’m a “cop hater” because I actually know how the mail works and you don’t? The word “use” there doesn’t mean anything other than the guy was registered at the PO at that address. Your literalism is a sign of extreme neurosis.

Well thanks for all that.

You responses here have been quite amusing, I assure you.

In your Cop Hating zeal you make up ridiculous assumptions of your own while faulting me for commenting on what this news article actually states as a fact.

But now I actually do have to visit the post office and I already know a from you that a loser who brags about “40 years of pot smoking experience” can go on mumbling insane assumptions non stop.

At least they are making an argument, as opposed to the totally false and idiotic claim that the “we” live in a “drug free society.” The number of bars and liquor stores in this country should be enough for even a third grader to notice we don’t.

If those people posted their sick drug ideals on DU they would be accepted with open arms, while conservatives like us would be banned in minutes if not seconds.

To me, that says a lot.

And who knows - many of them probably do to advance their drug agenda. One browser window is signed in at DU and another is signed in here at FR.

It is interesting that you Cop Haters often have to cling to group thought.

Yours is the third post seeking to do so in this thread and I did not even bother to read every post, could be more.

Here is a tip for you - when creeps like those don't have a problem with you - you have a problem.

20 years ago the saying was, “A libertarian is a liberal who wants a tax cut”

I would exile drug pushers to a Devil’s Island or execute them. After a fair trial of course

I thought it was quite bizarre that you accused me of having a vendetta against you for making one post to you about this story. I couldn't even recall the last time I posted to you. So I did some research on your posting and it became clear why you came up with that insanity. You seem to have a real habit, an addiction, to breaking the rules and bringing up other threads about me and to me and invoking my name without pinging me. You are the one who has a vendetta going and you're projecting it on me.

You're pretty much just a liar and way more than half a bubble out of plumb aren't you?

SEA KELP! ;-)

Well, you certainly worked overtime trying to demonize me for small potatoes.

Actually less than small potatoes, more like small taters.

Link 1: You never posted back a link with your supposed opposition proving me wrong (your own lie?).
Link 2: I didn't ping you because you were posting in that thread regularly, both before the post and after. If you want to talk "Coward" - How come you didn't have the guts to respond then?
Link 3: Again you posted regularly before and after I posted and you responded to the post in THREE MINUTES. It is not like I needed to ping you. You were living in that thread. And I did not lie, which has been your standard response to me, that I lie, because that is the only comeback your single braincell can muster.
Link 4: This is actually a funny one. You posted to me first in this thread: "Since makinmg assumptions is the best you've ever done we shouldn't be too hard on you." So I figured - OK, if he wants to pull a BS statement about me from his behind then I will remind everyone here what a Big Loser he is to prove his BS. That makes the quote totally in context because you are brain damaged enough to afford me the legitimate opportunity to do so. I don't have to post only your comments to me and I did not lie about the context. There you go with the "lie" thing, you sound like an adolescent, but then again, 16 would be the age when you started damaging your brain with 40 years of pot smoking use. Wouldn't it?

Bottom line is - you got spanked for posting (lie, lie, lie LoL!) this about me:

"Since makinmg assumptions is the best you've ever done we shouldn't be too hard on you."

And what is even more funny about this is - You tried to slam me for making assumptions, even though the news report supports what I stated - and while making your own dumb a$$ assumptions that just got weirder and weirder, as I played you like a puppet by encouraging you to ramble on. LMAO!

And...LoL!... and then you even posted: Why are your cognitive functions so much slower than mine.

ROFL! STOP! No stop man! You're killing me!

vendetta
2. any prolonged and bitter feud, rivalry, contention, or the like: a political vendetta.

"One post vendetta" - but here is what you posted in this thread:

""Since makinmg assumptions is the best you've ever done we shouldn't be too hard on you."

"The best you've ever done" is an attack on every post I have ever made.

That, as well as your searching back months is clear proof of your vendetta.

There is the prolonged part.

I am sure no one will blame me for dropping you like a bad habit (you might want to save your last braincell and look into that).

If I made you cry I am not sorry.

Next time stick to the issue instead of making a personal attack on me.

“Experience” is bragging.

People use that word on a job resume.

Calamity, or a word like that, would be much more the case, especially considering the rather poor state your mind is in.

Calamity
1. a great misfortune or disaster, as a flood or serious injury.

It is 8:30 in the morning here and already without even having coffee yet, I forced you to admit that two of the four links you cried like a baby about are bogus.

That is what life without long term drug abuse can do for you.

Unfortunately after 40 years, your possibilities are close to nil.

However, here you go. Good luck with that.
