Being Blunt

Somewhere between 96th and 116, a young man got on the train and sat a few seats down from me. The car was quiet save a few high school girls. Matter of factly, the he pulled some paper and weed from his coat pocket and proceeded to roll a number of joints.

The men across the car from me nudged one another, glancing slightly from their newspapers down the aisle. Then, as the train rolled into 116th Street, they quietly stood up, walked over the the corner where the boy sat rolling his goods, ever so slightly flashed their badges and cuffed him on the spot.

Good morning!

That's hilarious. It's nice to know there actually are plain clothes officers on the subways ... sometimes at least.

when the cops got up to bust him, i actually thought that they were going over to i was trying to figure out if the cops had negotiated some sort of sale with the kid ahead of time or if he was just completely stupid and rolling them for his own satisfaction.

That's what smoking pot does to ya, kiddies.

What an idiot! Discretion with illegal contraband is a given. Foolish kid.

Corie: Being ignorant will do that to you as well. Its not the pot. its the individual.
