That being said a story caught my attention. A woman was convicted of possession of drug paraphernalia. She called the police to tell them that some one had broken into her house and it turns out that she had drugs in there. They arrested her although it was her boyfriends drugs but it didn't matter. It was HER home.
This was an episode of COPS once. A girl was stopped drugs was found in the car and then they found her boyfriend, who actually owned the drugs, but he let his girlfriend take the fall for it. The officers knew what was up but there wasn't much they can do. The girlfriend was left in the back of the squad car to yell, scream and cry about the fact that her cowardly boyfriend left her out to dry.
If there is a lesson in this it is to watch who YOU make friends with. I had to look up some information on drug possession this is what I found disturbing...
Some jurisdictions have mandatory minimum drug possession laws, which dole out punishments for possession in cases regardless of specific circumstances in a case. Mandatory minimum drug possession laws do not take into account a defendant’s background, involvement in the crime, or threat to society when determining punishment.This is really a good reason to watch the company you take.
Also there was another unfortunately story. One of the ladies Tyra met in a California women's prison was a daughter whose mother gave her up after they both plotted to kill an abusive boyfriend. Man not only you have to watch your friends, you have to realize you can't trust no one, even sometimes your mother.
