Cops and DEA Execute Drug Raid on Apartment – Walk in On Coworker
By Max Chantha | October 20, 2015
MARYLAND – Any fan of the Wire will have seen the show’s shady depiction of complicity between law enforcement and criminals, especially involving the drug trade.
In the case of Officer Sarah Campbell, this portrayal of crooked cops proves to be true.
Campbell has been charged with numerous crimes production of controlled dangerous substance, allowing access to firearms by a minor, and marijuana and paraphernalia possession.
She was discovered after a Baltimore PD narcotics detective and DEA task force served a search warrant on her apartment.
She was arrested with another man, charged with similar crimes.
Though her $15,000 bail has been posted, she still faces serious time if convicted of all the charges.
According to the Baltimore police spokesperson, her criminal charges will be thoroughly investigated.
Following her criminal investigation, further scrutiny of her professional dealings and the department itself will occur in order to determine the depth of corruption.
It is both sad and telling when a fantastical TV show proves to be not so fantastical.
The collusion between police and criminals is likely deeper than any could believe, and Sarah Campbells across the nation expose this collaboration every time they are caught.
As pointless and ineffective as the War on Drugs is, it is at least helpful in exposing those officers who will disregard the law for their own benefit.
Those who use their positions of power to seek personal gain should be swiftly and immediately removed from their offices; this, and an end to the tired, destructive War on Drugs will allow for a dramatic increase in police accountability and cohesion with the public.
