liberalism is a disease is a registered user.

"The suspect, 32-year-old Assif Mayar, was booked into the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin on drug possession and sales charges, according to the sheriff's office.
Nelson said Mayar apparently acquired the alligator, named "Mr. Teeth," in 1996 to commemorate the death of rapper Tupac Shakur. It appears the animal was being used as a deterrent to scare away would-be marijuana thieves."

Amazing to think that scum like this walk amongst us. Too bad the gator didn't turn on 'Ass-if' while he was going through his stash to process it for sale to school kids in Castro Valley.
Last night, the KTVU news showed a video of his wife driving away from the house in a new Mercedes SUV, no doubt from proceeds from their drug sales. She tried to cover her face with her hijab. Welcome to America, Ass-if.

When is America going to get serious about drug enforcement? Singapore style drug laws would be just fine. They don't have a drug problem, period.

The left-wing-loon committee that Dufus Biden is chairing to trample the second amendment vis-a-vis guns, ought to be investigating the fact that most of the crazies that did these mass executions were drug addicts, a good percentage of them on meth. Oops, the liberal media hasn't mention that fact, have they?

The guy with the alligator wouldn't have been harassed by the goverment if he had had military assault weapons on his property as guaranteed by our Founding Fathers signing off of the second amendment. Just sayin'.

Funny how Mr. Teeth lived for 16+ years but upon contact with the Police dies within a few days.

Funny how Ass-if was allowed into this country, continues to commit crimes involving drugs (endangering his 2 year old offspring), illegally obtains and keeps a wild animal to guard his stash and you are worried about the cops handling of the caimin? Dude, in the '50yearshere', what the hell has become of your priorities?

Unless you just have a grudge against police because of your pat run ins with the law....you only have yourself to blame for that.

@ 50yearshere-

If you followed the story you would know the Caiman died at the Oakland zoo. No police handling there. Moreover, you don't have an issue with the bad guy keeping a Caiman in a residential neighborhood to protect the ILLEGAL drugs he had for sale? Oh, yeah, he also has a toddler living in the house! Pull your head out dude and figure it out. The BAD GUY is to blame NOT the cops.

Drug Country,

Singapore has the harshest drug laws of any country (possession is punished by death by hanging) and they've only seen an increase in drug crimes and trafficking in recent years.
