Danger for cat owners

Recommended Posts

This guy should contact the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) and get their support for a lawsuit to clear his record, receive a public apology, and to ban the use of the type of field test that confused cat litter with methamphetamine.

He doesn't need to be an activist to go to the ACLU for assistance. He was falsely arrested and jailed because the devices used to determine that a plastic bag filled with cat litter was methamphetamine are known to be unreliable. That is the fault of the police department. The ACLU is trying to get this faulty field test equipment banned. A crime lab can do a test for methamphetamine in less than an hour. So why did it take the county forensic lab so much longer that he was held in jail for 3 days? Even worse, the police department issued a press release with his booking picture the day of his arrest stating that they had made a drug bust.

A lot of people think the test kits the cops have will pop positive for anything tested. 

I remember an old guy that got busted for having weed- they had tested tea leaves which were "positive".

Maybe the suppliers are cutting corners?

Would that be the test kit suppliers or the tea leaves suppliers?!

I was but a wee youth when exposed to this:

My father is a bastard, 
My ma's an S.O.B. 
My grandpa's always plastered, 
My grandma pushes tea. 
My sister wears a mustache, 
My brother wears a dress. 
Goodness gracious, that's why I'm a mess! 


I didn't know what the 4th line meant, and when I questioned it, I was told 'tea' was shorthand for marijuana.  So, quite obviously, there is a longstanding connection between 'tea' and pot.    biggrin.png

Here're the full lyrics, for those interested.  Yeah, it as a great song, and quite controversial for its time as, even though it isn't shown in this lyric, on the stage its final two words were, "Fuck you!"



TIGER (spoken) 
(imitating Officer Krupke) 
Hey, you! 

RIFF (spoken) 
Me, Officer Krupke? 

TIGER (spoken) 
(as Krupke) 
Yeah, you! Gimme one good reason 
For not draggin’ ya down to the 
Stationhouse, ya punk. 

RIFF (sings) 
Dear kindly Sergeant Krupke, 
Ya gotta understand-- 
It’s just our bringin’ upke 
That gets us outta hand. 
Our mothers all are junkies, 
Our fathers all are drunks. 
Golly Moses -- natcherly we’re punks. 

Gee, Officer Krupke, we’re very upset; 
We never had the love that every 
Child oughta get. 
We ain’t no delinquents, 
We’re misunderstood. 
Deep down inside us there is good! 

There is good! 

There is good, there is good, 
There is untapped good. 
Like inside, the worse of us is good. 

TIGER (imitating Krupke) 
That’s a touchin’ good story. 

Lemme tell it to the world! 

TIGER (imitating Krupke) 
Just tell it to the Judge. 

RIFF (**to Snowboy) 
Dear kindly Judge, your Honor, 
My parents treat me rough. 
With all their marijuana, 
They won’t give me a puff. 
They didn’t wanna have me, 
But somehow I was had. 
Leapin’ lizards --that’s what I’m so bad! 

SNOWBOY (imitating a Judge) 
Officer Krupke, you’re really a square; 
This boy don’t need a judge, he 
Needs a analysis’s care! 
It’s just his neurosis that oughta be curbed-- 
**He’s psychologically disturbed. 

I’m disturbed! 

We’re disturbed, we’re disturbed, 
We’re the most disturbed, 
Like we’re psychologically disturbed. 

SNOWBOY (still acting part of Judge)(spoken) 
Hear ye, Her ye! In the opinion 
Of this court, this child is 
Depraved on account he ain’t had a normal home. 

RIFF (spoken) 
Hey, I’m depraved on account I’m deprived! 

SNOWBOY (as judge - spoken) 
So take him to a headshrinker. 

RIFF (to Action)(sings) 
My Daddy beats my Mommy, 
My Mommy clobbers me, 
My Grandpa is a Commie, 
My Grandma pushes tea. 
My sister wears a mustache, 
My brother wears a dress. 
Goodness Gracious, that’s why I’m a mess! 

ACTION (as psychiatrist) 
Officer Krupke, he shouldn’t be here. 
This boy don’t need a couch, he needs 
A useful career. 
Society’s played him a terrible trick, 
And sociologically he’s sick! 

I am sick! 

We are sick, we are sick, 
We are sick sick sick 
Like we’re sociologically sick! 

ACTION (speaks as psychiatrist) 
In my opinion, this child does not need 
To have his head shrunk at all. 
Juvenile delinquency is purely a 
Social disease. 

RIFF (spoken) 
Hey, I got a social disease! 

ACTION (spoken as psychiatrist) 
So take him to a social worker! 

RIFF (to ARAB)(sings) 
Dear kindly social worker, 
They tell me get a job, 
Like be a soda-jerker, 
Which means like be a slob. 
It’s not I’m anti-social, 
I’m only anti-work. 
Gloryosky, that’s why I’m a jerk! 

ARAB (as social worker) 
Officer Krupke, you’ve done it again. 
This boy don’t need a job, he needs a 
Year in the pen. 
It ain’t just a question of misunderstood; 
Deep down inside him, he’s no good! 

I’m no good! 

We’re no good, we’re no good, 
We’re no earthly good, 
Like the best of us is no damn good! 

The trouble is he’s lazy. 

The trouble is he drinks 

The trouble is he’s crazy. 

The trouble is he stinks, 

The trouble is he’s growing. 

The trouble is he’s grown! 

Krupke, we got troubles of our own! 
Gee, Officer Krupke, 
We’re down on our knees. 
‘Cause no one wants a fella with 
A social disease. 
Gee, Officer Krupke, 
What are we to do? 
Gee, Officer Krupke -- 
Krup you!
