To Serve….. or “Fuck the feds”

DES MOINES, Iowa — On Jan. 5, 2012, Paul Valin called the police to report he’d found a backpack containing what he believed to be meth-making equipment. That simple act of good citizenship landed his and wife Cindy’s house on the National Clandestine Laboratory Register, the federal Drug Enforcement Agency’s list of meth labs.

The NCLR “contains addresses of some locations where law enforcement agencies reported they found chemicals or other items that indicated the presence of either clandestine drug laboratories or dumpsites.”

The fact that Valin found the backpack more than 15 miles from his house isn’t the sort of thing the DEA or any other division of the Department of Justice would have checked on before publishing his address on the NCLR.

    Did they shoot his dog too? This kind or stuff makes me want to participate in the “see something say something”/Geheime Staatspolize program.

    thats why my motto is
    torch it where ya find it and go on with your life
    aint no sense in complicating things for yourself

    Anyone who voluntarily contacts the authorities ‘to be helpful’ is simply being foolish today.

    They could have saved themselves a lot of trouble by dropping the pack into the nearest dumpster and keeping their mouth’s shut.
    Classic example of “No good deed goes unpunished”,
    especially when gestapo are involved.

    Now some cranked up meth head will burn his house down for messing with his hidden porta-lab, after seeing the story in the local rag!

    Yeah, Des Moines is a harsh mistress.

Play nice.
