Drug War Asininity: Cops Raid Georgia Man’s Home After Mistaking Okra for Weed

Paramilitary storm troopers raid a vegetable garden in an amazing display of incompetence.

Cartersville, GA — Heroic Georgia police task force, in an effort to keep the citizens of Cartersville safe from a plant, descended onto the house of a man who’d dare grow vegetables in his own yard.

Dwayne Perry was awaken Wednesday night to a helicopter hovering over his house and deputies and a K-9 unit in his front yard.

“They were strapped to the gills,” Perry said. “I was scared actually at first, because I didn’t know what was happening.”

The chopper belonged to the heroic task force created by the Georgia governor’s office which is setup to kidnap and cage those who’d dare try to do with their own bodies as they wish.

The overzealous and highly incompetent task force mistook an okra plant, which has five leaves for the cannabis plant which has seven.

“We’ve not been able to identify it as of yet. But it did have quite a number of characteristics that were similar to a cannabis plant,” said Georgia State Patrol Capt. Kermit Stokes.

Whether this was a cannabis plant or not, the very idea of sending in heavily armed militarized police to kidnap and cage a person for cultivating any plant, is criminal.

“Here I am, at home and retired and you know I do the right thing,” Perry said. “Then they come to my house strapped with weapons for no reason. It ain’t right.”

“The more I thought about it, what could have happened? Anything could have happened,” Perry said.

Perry is right, we’ve seen horrid examples of trigger and grenade happy SWAT teams raid innocent people and leave a trail of maimed and dead adults and children behind; all in the name of this immoral war to control people’s body and mind.

Amazingly enough, the authorities actually apologized, however Perry doesn’t think that goes far enough. He is still receiving calls from neighbors asking why his house was raided and believes the damage to his reputation has already happened.

  • Lol. If I were an officer, and I was told to suit up because we’re raiding a house because of suspected marijuana plants, I’d just look at everyone and say “really?!? We’re really doing this? I can get why Steve wants to fly the copter because that shit is fun, but for real we’re going to carry assault rifles into a persons house over pot?”

    I’d laugh all the way to the unemployment line.

    • That’s called integrity. Something sadly lacking now a days. Good for you.

  • The scary part is …every time action is taken by people with guns…there is a chance of killing innocent people due to “fear for my life”. If you are going to risk the lives of people by sending idiots with guns to their house..then make sure there was a just reason for it. Okra? WTF? They could have killed someone….or shot their dogs(for fear of their lives). I am sure that between having guns pointed at him by people who will shoot him in an instant, and the cursing and insults that usually accompany one of these raids…I bet this gentleman is not a supporter of the Police State anymore. Probably ransacked his house also. 1984. Is here. Now.

  • Can any American explain to me why the states don’t have one police force for the whole state with one Comissioner or Chief of Police instead of all these seperate county’s and Chiefs who employ their own officers with standards that vary greatly from another county or city. While ever that system is in place for law enforcement in USA it’s never going to improve anytime soon in my view from the outside looking in

Showing up to work as a fat cop is showing up incapable of fully performing the job. As it is an impossibility for the brain to operate any better than the body it resides in.

  • I think this happens a lot, 6 years ago cops came into my house when I wasn’t home because they thought the tomatoes I started early were pot, they looked in the window and guessed wrong, came in the house because they said my door was open, my brother next door ask what was going on when they were leaving and that’s the BS story they gave him. Okra and tomatoes seem to confuse them.
