You can’t fix stupid. And cops in the south Chicago suburb or Harvey wouldn’t have it any other way. “In a lengthy video posted on YouTube, a group of men appears to flash guns, smoke marijuana and sell drugs, and even brag about dog fighting and having a dead dog in the garage. Harvey Police Department detectives who watched the video recognized several of the men as known gang members, leading to a raid of the home which turned up the guns and drugs, and led to several arrests, according to Sean Howard, a spokesman for the police department.”
None of these former Fulbright fellows made any attempt to hide their identities as Mr. DeMille zoomed in for his close-up.
Detectives were made aware of the video, which seems to show several guns as well as marijuana and a possible drug deal, police said. Apparently produced at a home in Harvey, it ‘featured a well-known drug dealer and at least 20 known gang members from various southern Cook County communities,’ (police department spokesman Sean) Howard said.
After executing an early morning search warrant, the local 5-0 took three gang members into custody on a variety of charges, including one individual who had been on house arrest at the time. Oops. Maybe this time the local judiciary will actually put some of them away with more than just a slap on the wrist and a promise to be good.
