Stupid cop tricks

Toronto:

Fareed Ahamad, 41, was charged with trafficking in November, 2001, even though the drug transaction was not his idea, he did not make any money and he believed he was helping a disabled man who appeared to be in pain.

An undercover cop, using a wheelchair for disguise, asks someone on the street to buy him some drugs. The good samaritan, guilty at most of poor judgment, goes into a restaurant and purchases $20 of crack for the apparantly challenged man, and is arrested for his trouble.
Fortunately, last week the judge threw out the charges. Unfortunately, it took two years for the stupid cop trick to be corrected.

[Thanks to Tim Meehan for the tip]
