Scotland’s Police Target Asians In War On Cannabis

by | 9th, September 2010

MORE news of Scotland’s Cannabis war now as the National manager for Crimestoppers Scotland, one Kate Johnston, arrives at at Central Scotland Police HQ in Stirling to show off equipment used in cannabis cultivations. These are the the things you honest citizens must be on the look out for, such as buckets, lots of electric plugs and pictures of marijuana leaves on brown cardboard.

And there are more tips in this week’s edition of Police Professional:

Kenny MacAskill, Cabinet Secretary for Justice is quoted thus:

“The fact that so many of the individuals involved in cannabis cultivation are of South East Asian origin should not be seen as us targeting a community.”

It is always a community. Anyone not a white, heterosexual Protestant is by definition part of a community. Don’t try and fight it. It’s just the way it is. You are not an individual. You are part of a community.

Anyhow, let’s not target the south Asians. Says MacAskill:

“Nine out of ten of those arrested for these particular crimes are of South East Asian descent and it would be negligent if we refused to acknowledge that reality. But I hope that we will also get the support of those communities with family ties to that region of the world.”

So. You are not targets but you do now something?

And these are some other thing to look out for:

•Premises appear unoccupied most of the time but with people, often of South East Asian appearance, seen visiting late at night or into the early hours…

Round up the usual suspects to fight a drug that were it legal would kill off this illegality in an instant…
