Kids removed from home of drug raid

The Associated Press

GULFPORT, MS — Two children have been removed from a home where narcotics agents seized 25 doses of Ecstasy, authorities say.

Tuesday's raid led to the arrest of Tommie Rodriquez Booth, 20, and Anna Elise Banks, 30. Each is charged with two counts of child neglect involving juveniles identified only as Banks' children. Both children are under the age of 10.

Booth is also charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and violation of a city ordinance that limits the number of dogs allowed at a residence. Authorities found 11 pit bulls at the home.

The Mississippi Department of Human Services took the children into protective custody. Animal control officers took the dogs to the Humane Society of South Mississippi. "The home was in disarray, with dogs running loose and feces everywhere," said Chris Loposser, a narcotics investigator.

Note: Narcotics officers absolutely love dog shit. If there is a turd within a mile of your home the narcs will locate it, photograph it and be in the local paper crowing about it before you have even had your first shower in jail.

    Tennessee's drug tax, or Tax on Unauthorized Substances is no tax at all, rather it is punishment before you go to trial. If you are found guilty, you get yet more punishment. If you are found innocent, well, too bad, cause the Bill of Rights is null and void in Tennessee.

    A family member just had all his money and cars seized for the marijuana tax; they put a lien on his house. He was busted over the weekend here in Nashville for a few baby-sized plants and a small amount of commercial weed. For this, they say he owes almost as much as his house is worth.

  • A Bloomington Springs house and the land it sits on yesterday became the first real estate in Tennessee to be seized for unpaid tax on illegal drugs. The property belongs to Jerry Palk, and the tax is for the marijuana crop that law officers found growing inside an unoccupied house there last month – 80 marijuana plants three to four feet tall.



    In Tennessee, a 60 year-old man recovering from cancer smoked marijuana to alleviate the pain and depression. He has since been arrested and had his money and cars seized and a lien placed on his house. All this without due process of law, which is blatantly unconstitutional. The fifth amendment states that no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law. Why was the man's property illegally seized? He failed to pay the drug tax, a topic I've covered at length.
