    Oh Golly Gee WOW ! Another 'huge' bust for the big "task farce"...When are these useless excuses for police going to do some REAL police work and go after the things that are REALLY harming society ?? I, for one, am sick to death of reading about these morons beating their chests and proudly going on about their busts which usually always amount to nothing but a bit of pot.. When are people going to get fed up and start kicking up a royal stink about this blatant abuse of taxpayers dollars and manpower ?? It's totally sick and it's about time some changes were made..
