Mysterious Men Dropping From Helicopters To Chop Down NorCal Marijuana Grows

Thread starter #1
There's been some mysterious activity in the skies over Mendocino County lately. Folks who live there want to know: Who are the armed men dropping out of helicopters to chop down their marijuana grows? They dress in combat camouflage, some of them hide their faces. This summer, a group of men in Mendocino County loaded into helicopters and flew missions to eradicate marijuana. They're not police officers. They work for a security company called Lear Asset Management. According to their promotional poster, the group works with law enforcement .That's why Susan Schindler suspected the posse, when her medical marijuana garden was hit last month.

"They took hand saws and just cut the trunks," Schindler said. Schindler said the armed men in camouflage dropped into her garden from an unmarked helicopter and refused to identify themselves. "There was no paperwork, no copies of any warrants they didn't leave any inventory of what they took," she said. She told KPIX 5 that she is following all the county regulations: 25 plants per parcel, the legal limit in Mendocino County. And she said the strain of cannabis she grows has no street value: It really is medicinal. "The irony is that this whole garden that was destroyed was not a garden that would get you high," Schindler said.

Lear Asset Management's president Paul Trouette turned down KPIX 5's request for an interview, but said Lear had nothing to do with the raid on Susan's garden. So we asked Mendocino County's sheriff, Tom Allman. "The sheriff's department doesn't hire any private security to go out and do our job," he said. Allman said his deputies have conducted some recent raids, including several in Susan's area on the day she was hit. But he says his guys wear badges and clearly identify themselves.

"So are they seeing things?" We asked him. "Or is it just the fact that they are mistaken?" "I think there are some people who may become paranoid this time of year," he said. But Schindler has another theory: Whoever is behind it, she believes she's an easy target. "I think they tried to find places where they saw nobody, I think they tried to find places where they would not be confronted with guns." So it's still unclear who exactly is raiding the pot farms. The security company, Lear, insists they are only staying on the private property that hires them. And that's perfectly legal.

Hahaha, seriously! :ganjamon::party:

Anyone who jumps out of a helicopter to destroy a plant needs to smoke a bowl and seriously consider their life choices.

Right Wing Zealots . . . probably the Republicans who just don't see the positives in MJ.

Un-numbered or un-marked in any way is highly illegal. Probably foreign terrorists. Be cool. You-all know what to do! Self defense is totally legal and the most American right known to man. Call 911 and Stand Your Ground (legally armed only!)(What's the status of the SYG law in Calif.?). This cannot stand. Have crossbow/will travel. Stay way cool, but strong...legal.
CoolCoolCoolCoolCool:volcano-smiley:but strong. :Namaste:
 
If you are legal and afraid, PM me.

still feeling something fishy

I can see(in the other story) what they are trying to do,but man,a plot with 25 plants?? big,big diference in a cartel grow,and someone with 25 plants.
wish someone would video the "men in fatigues" dropping from the chopper

Reports of vigilante marijuana raids on private property may simply stem from a lack of legal clarity. Under the so-called "open fields doctrine" set forth by the U.S. Supreme Court, the Fourth Amendment does not protect undeveloped property from warrantless searches. As a result, police may be permitted to cut down private gardens without a warrant.
As someone who just sold my farm,650acres,I dont like reading this one bit,IT is on file,(county office)that I own 1 square mile,and just because it looks undeveloped,should not give anyone the right to trespass

just getting tired of,the man,hassling the wrong people in life.
 
You want to run us Republicans off that are on your side, morsap?! Stupid way to show us that we matter! And if Democrats were any different cannabis would have been legalized decades ago! Why would we want to help after your comment?! That is my medicine that you are messing with!

Exactly what I was thinking, lol. I thought my post was realistic :). The fact of the matter is it is US against the gov regardless of what party is in office. Nice post Brother :high-five:

I was not nit picking. I was responding to someone who wants to divide us over politics. In fact, I was stating the same thing. It has nothing to do with the political affiliation. Making dumb statements about the peoples' politics is just plain dumb! Same thing about knocking Christians! There are plenty of us that know that cannabis prohibition has nothing to do with "sin"! I happen to be one of the "Christians Against Prohibition"! We all need to pick up the ball and fight against the ignorance that drives the "war on drugs", especially cannabis prohibition! "United we stand. Divided we fall!"
