According to Bill Furray, accomplished agent and head of the DEA’s office in Beaumont, Texas, “You don’t see many drug traffickers retire. Either they end up in prison, or they end up dead.”
That quote was from a statement agent Furray made following the drug-trafficking arrest of a wealthy couple in his state.
Now, I wonder what profound statement he made following the arrest of his own daughter Sarah for drug-trafficking charges that could ultimately land her behind bars for approximately 215 years?
Do you think it was as hard assed as his previous statement?
I’m thinking not.
But the one thing Furray most likely will be saying to his daughter now is, ‘How in the hell am I going to keep my little princess out of jail, huh?’
Ah yes, that glorious drug war.
It can be a bitch. Especially when all you’ve worked for your entire career comes back to bite you in the booty in the form of your sweet baby being popped for slingin’ dope.
So, what did daddy’s little angel get busted with, you might ask?
Well, it looks as if she had all the usual suspects available for sale and consumption, a probable cause statement quoted by NBC affiliate KCEN claims that police found “31.5 grams of packaged cocaine, 126 grams of high grade marijuana, 29 `ecstasy’ tablets, methamphetamine and 60 doses of a drug similar to LSD” in Sarah Furay’s bedroom.
But even after seeing his daughter brought up on the same charges that he himself is so proud to arrest folks for, I would have to wager that he believes what he and his backwards assed mindset of an agency is doing is still worth perpetuating.
That’s the truly sad part of this story.
Not the fact that his baby girl got popped for selling a little bit of drugs in order to make some extra shopping cash and to have her own stash, although it is ridiculous in the grand scope of things, but it’s that he and his kind probably believe what they’re doing is upstanding, no matter what the cost.
It’s way past time to end the stupidity that is the so-called “war on drugs”, folks.
You can do your part by becoming actively involved on a grass roots level and “Be the change”.
