What a waste: 30 kids arrested for selling pot


Can you imagine undercover officers spending an entire year posing as high school students, and all they uncover is kids selling pot?

What a waste of time and our taxpayer money, as recounted in this story today. The officers spent nine months in classrooms at three Palm Beach County high schools and busted 30 kids over the past few days, most for selling marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school.

If I were the Palm Beach County School District, I would not have held a news conference yesterday to brag about this because it is an embarrassment. The officers spent an entire year doing nothing else, and could not find any cocaine, meth labs or Ecstasy sales? With the school district threatening to cut the school police department, I suggest the chief find other ways to prove the department's worth.
