Idle thought in an attempt to get the motor running again:
Snoop Dogg, being charged with gun and marijuana possession? Are you serious? How can this be?
Talk about picking the low-hanging fruit. He's been picked up several times over the last few months for having marijuana and weapons. It's almost too easy for the police. Police departments should use him to train their cadets on drug searches. Anyone who can't find weed on him should flunk out of the academy.
Usually police officers have to have probable cause to search someone. Here, the probable cause is that he's freaking Snoop Dogg.
I would imagine that the prosecution is going to have a relatively easy time with this one:
Prosecutor: Can you please tell the Jury what Mr. Dogg was doing before you searched him?
Police Officer: Well, he was rolling down the street smoking endo and I believe he was sipping on a substance that turned out to be gin and juice.
Prosecutor: What was his demeanor?
Police Officer: Laid back.
Prosecutor: Laid back?
Police Officer: Yes. You know, like he had his mind on his money and his money on his mind.
I wonder if it's too late to market and sell some "Free Snoop" t-shirts.
