Santa Clara County Sherriff’s shoot and Arrest a Man during Marijuana Bust
On June 28, 2012 Michael Ealey the owner of Streetwise Special Delivery Courier Service, was on his way to Watsonville California. He was going to make a pickup up and delivery for one of Streetwise Special Delivery Courier Service clients. He was traveling south on highway 152 in Santa Clara County, when he saw a lot of Sheriff’s vehicles. Thinking they were doing some kind of drill or making some kind of movie. He continued on his way. Well it was not a drill or a training video it was a shootout and an illegal Marijuana cultivating bust.
Santa Clara Sheriffs Deputies and the Department of Fish and Game, came across an illegal Marijuana cultivation site. Near Mt. Madonna State Park in Santa Clara County just south of SR 152 and Whitehurst Road at 11:45 a.m. Sheriff’s Deputies came across to suspects who tried to scare the Deputies away, causing two of the deputies to fire their weapons towards the suspects. The two suspects got away. One of them was wounded in the arm, by a member of the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Department SWAT Team. A couple of hour later, one of the suspects was located south of where the shooting took place. The suspect was taken to the hospital and then he will be going on to Santa Clara County main jail. The second suspect is still at large. The illegal Marijuana cultivation value is not known at this time.
I still say the government should legalize Marijuana. If they legalized it then, they could tax the heck out of it that means federal and state taxes. This will help the federal government as well as the states with their debt situation. Why burn up all that money? It does not make since, when it can clearly help.
