Yes, this woman is 100% wrong for stealing this car, but this is not the best use of limited police resources. The folks they are catching are not the problematic car thieves we should be catching. They are manufacturing unnatural conditions that entice people to do something they wouldn't ordinarily do. This woman, as many others caught during these stings, would never break into a car or jimmy the ignition to steal it... that's where the real auto theft problem is. A car sitting on the street with the motor running, PLEASE! What's more effective than this waste of tax dollars is to take a portion of that money and launch an auto theft education campaign in the areas of high theft rates. Auto theft devices and education do a much better of preventing REAL auto theft than this nonsense. It may not make my community safer, but it does make for good entertainment.

And these folks actually call themselves police... A more clear cut case of entrapment I have seldom seen.

I applaud Commissioner Batts for the leadership displayed surrounding this case. It's not easy changing the policing culture, but it must change. Thank you Commissioner setting the bar where it needs to be, high!

If our actions as law enforcement are above board we never have to worry about being filmed. I was wondering how the previous statement was even going to survive appropriate scrutiny! The commissioner did the only possible thing and that was to correct a wild horse that was about to crash and burn on them! I agree Neill!

Hopefully this video will encourage people to protect their constitutional rights. The police are not your best friends, especially when it involves this idiotic drug war. Question: "Do you have large sums of money?" Answer: "It is none of your business." Jokes aside. Basically, exercise your 4th amendment right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure of your person, places and effects. Never grant permission to be searched or to have your property searched. Always make it clear that you do not consent to searches, ever. Then ask over and over again, "Are you detaining me, or am I free to go?" Go to FlexYourRights.org and watch "Ten Rules for Dealing With The Police."

Angus, welcome to the LEAP family. Thank you for your 35 years of dedicated service to your citizens and thank you for your courage then and now. You are a breath of fresh air for New Zealand and I am certain that many will join with you.

Another great video of the Caravan for Peace highlighting the effects of the drug war upon immigrants and people of color. Unity is necessary if we plan to defeat the war on people.

Well Mr. President, you said it! Now what you going to do about it?
Introduction
After decades of being a drug warrior, I've come to realize that our drug policies are not just ineffective, but counter productive to public safety in our communities. Our drug prohibition laws are the worst public policy since slavery. I have dedicated the rest of my life to dismantling our laws of drug prohibition.
