    Man asks officer wearing badge for meth

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070818/...CyP2mUpGRI2ocA

    EUGENE, Ore. - A man hoping to score some meth asked the wrong person for the drug. The Eugene police vice narcotics unit had searched an apartment on Monday night and were questioning the tenant when a man came by and asked to buy drugs, Sgt. Jerry Webber said.

    As detectives stood around with their badges hanging from their necks and latex gloves on their hands, the man asked the tenant, "Can you hook me up?" Webber said.

    The tenant was seated on the couch with handcuffs around his wrists. A detective was writing him a citation.

    The tenant said, "I don't think I can help you," Webber recalled, but the visitor persisted. He then allegedly turned to a detective and asked him for meth.

    The detective told the visitor, James Wilkinson, 34, of Eugene, he was under arrest for attempted possession of methamphetamine.

    Wilkinson tried to run, but officers grabbed him, Webber said.

    They found a small amount of marijuana in his possession, Webber said.

    Officers cited the tenant, Gary Puckett, 58, for possessing meth and for endangering the welfare of a 15-year-old girl who was in the apartment.

    They also arrested a man who walked into the apartment carrying seven baggies of meth, Webber said.

    A fourth man showed up at the apartment carrying an illegal butterfly knife, Webber said. He told police he had come to tell Puckett not to sell drugs to his girlfriend. He left with a citation for carrying a concealed weapon.

    After that, police stopped answering the door, Webber said.

    These kind of stories make me wonder how these mental midgets don't walk in front of buses or fall into wood chippers or something else you would expect really, really stupid people to do?

    Thank goodness there isn't an IQ test required to become a criminal.

    What makes you think that they dont ?
    The other day we had a construction worker that was sheathing a roof on a rather large house walk right off of the roof. Only problem was it was a two story house.

    Busted him up pretty good. I heard that he was so drugged up that they couldnt put any drugs in him for two days till he "cleared out"' Personally, I think alot of accidents are a result of drugs, it just never gets reported much...

    I agree. We have a smallish river running through my balliwick, its very popular with the canoe/kayak crowd as well as other sports.
    We get a fair amount of drownings, and every single one has been alcohol/drug related.
    In fact I'll guesstimate that 95% of the untimely deaths I've been involved with (investgating) has been drug or alcohol related. This includes O/D, auto accidents, suicides, murders whatever.

    Coming out of the Peoples Republic of Eugene, I am just not surprised. The only good thing down there is sitting out on the sidewalk in front of the Steelhead Brewery, sipping good brew and watching all the braless college girls go by.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    Funny, but this is also the guy that would stick a knife in you and yours for 20 bucks. They don't think and they don't care. All they want is drugs.

    Obviously not playing with a full deck. Throw the book at both of them and get them off the streets.
    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft!
