    Drug Bust at San Diego State-96 arrested!

    http://www.cnn.com/2008/CRIME/05/06/...ion=cnn_latest

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Authorities have arrested nearly 100 people and seized guns and drugs in a sting operation at San Diego State University in California, the Drug Enforcement Administration said Tuesday.

    Among those arrested were 75 students, some of them working toward criminal justice or homeland security degrees. One criminal justice major was charged with possession of guns and cocaine, authorities said.

    One student sent a mass text message offering a "sale" on cocaine, the DEA said in a news release.

    Campus police and the DEA began their undercover operation after the death of a student from an overdose in May 2007, the news release said. A second overdose death occurred as recently as February at a fraternity house.

    The university president said all those arrested have been suspended and evicted if living on campus. One of those geniuses arrested asked if this would interfere with his chances of getting a job in law enforcement!

    There are probably a lot of parents not so proud of their kids anymore either.

    I just read on another site that the investigation was spurred by the death of a friend of a friend of mine:

    Aw, absinthe, that's sad. ((hugs))

    From your link:

    "A sad commentary is that when one of thse individuals was arrested, they inquired as to whether or not his arrest and incarceration would have an effect on his becoming a federal law enforcement officer," Patridge said.
    Officials said one of the students arrested on suspicion of selling cocaine was a month away from getting his master's degree in homeland security and another worked as a student community service officer and reported to campus police. A student majoring in criminal justice was arrested for possession of 500 grams of cocaine and two guns, officials said.

    Unhappy

    Holy sh_t! That's one of my alma maters. Well... even back in the '80's it had a reputation as a party school!
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    I am guessing to protect their stash from getting stolen. Sorry to hear about your friend's friend.

    I am not surprised at all...

    I am just going to sit back and wait until the parents of these drugged out kids start coming on the news and blaming LE for planting drugs or mishandling the case.

    I doubt any of the parents will blame THEIR KIDS for being druggies.

    I was going to ask you about that!

    I've been getting text and calls about it all day. Most of my friends are past their undergrad days, but we all have ties to that school.
