Understatement of the Day

Charles Cochran, lieutenant of the Hartford Police Department’s vice and narcotics division, said that there are many reasons why it is not a good idea for a civilian to enlist children to set up drug deals.

I think we can agree with that. This comes out of a situation where an assistant principal apparently sent a student to buy drugs from another student in order to catch that second student.
The lieutenant goes on to say:

“Committing one crime to make another crime go away. Is that really the example we want to set for kids?”

That’s a really good question. But isn’t that something the police do every day in the drug war? (Except, of course, for the nonsensical notion that since they do it it’s not a crime.)
