  1. Just cut to the chase, we investigated and found nothing wrong, the police could have excercised a bit of humanity but they don't and nothing will make them. This is why they are despised and they could care less, the "thin blue line" mentality will triumph.

  2. My neighbors smoke mariqanna all day everyday I've suffered from second hand smoke I have severe memory loss and had pancreatic surgery and I'm trying to move and the owner of the apartment I rent is trying to trap me here he threatens me with a eviction notice when I give him a 30 day notice becouse he knows I don't want a eviction on my credit report becouse I couldent rent a new apartment with a eviction on my credit report so he uses the eviction notice threatening me if I move I'm getting a eviction or try to move it's just horrible trying to escape to get away from druggie neighbors

  3. ITS CALLED POLICE ARE DOMESTIC TERRORISTS WITH NO COMPASSION FOR A DYING MAN…. They uphold the law until it’s against them….. then it’s “We’ve conducted a full/extensive investigation over the last year and a half and have come to the conclusion that OUR officers acted lawfully. We will NOT be releasing any information because it is now a personnel matter which is confidential.” THEY HATE THE COUNTRY AND THE CITIZENS AND THERE IS ZERO ACCOUNTABILITY.

  4. Proves police are evil and want you to die. Weed should be legal! Everywhere. Noones died from it EVER. This is a joke. The cops just want to profit to buy toys for the department because they don't understand the healing and relaxation of weed. That's the truth. They too know it's a plant. Yet alcohol aka legal poison is fine give me a break!!!

  5. No! Not happening….very disappointed in those officers! No reasonable person would've said that they're going to use the video to explore and imorove on …what?!?! This is alarming to any sane person. Fire those cops,!!!!!!!

  6. Someone needs to shred some asbestos and release it into the air of their station. Hopefully knowing that they will get cancer sometime in the next 30 years will help change their attitudes towards cancer patient rights.

  7. This hospitals reviews say it all. Nothing lawful about this. The staff responsible for this at Citizens Memorial Hospital should also be immediately fired along with the officers.

  8. Ironic… it's been legalized by vote, and yet they are using the operation to teach for future situations… what future situations? It's no longer an issue – by vote.

  9. Remember that "Protect and Serve" is NOT for you, its for them. This is the new look of community policing. There will be alot of hand wringing and written apologies and nothing, nothing will change or get better. The police were there to find an arrest able offense to issue a citation for revenue.

  10. shameful and heartless
    I bet these guys would tackle a 5 year old if they saw him j walking
    “just doing my job” is what captured nazi said too
    These guys aren’t hired to think for themselves which is precisely why the hiring qualifications need to change! Emotional intelligence should be the foundational hiring requirement.

  11. Hospital should be sued for violating hipaa laws, if it's not manufacture or produced by big Pharma and nobody's making a profit, if We have opioid epidemic that is going on in our country, what a disgrace to our country has become!!! money first.. This man's is in stage four and has slim to no chance of surviving. Please just let this man live in peace.. Shameful absolutely shameful no compassion for people in our country.. And I love my country.. But I am ashamed of all the corrupt Congress and state legislators..JMO
