    On a closer look, their website is one where they sell "Never Get Busted!" DVDs...

    http://kopbusters.com/

    Doesn`t seem like an actual charitable cause, but more like a publicity stunt now.

    actually, the police had an inaccurate warrant, they were busting cops for that.
    they lied on the search warrant affidavit, saying that someone saw the plants and could smell pot.

    They`re going to waste the police`s time when they could be busting real criminals for fake poo.

    they made were trying to make the house look like they were grower`s.. they were setting up grow lamps, and those happen to give off an infrared signature; I`m not sure what else they could have been doing, I`m sure the cannabis-looking plants probably did something or another... but basically they wanted to show that the police searched the house without probable cause- if the police search without probable cause any case resulting in a conviction is thrown out.... so...

    In my personal opinion the use of heat cameras in order to determine the homes likely to be growing marijuana to be perfectly fine. Albeit unconstitutional, they are catching people growing an illegal substance using this method. America needs to realize that in order to truly protect citizens, there must be a willful suspension of `liberties` to catch wrongdoers. `Liberties` referring the the `right` of not having heat camera results used to determine whether or not you are growing pot in your house.

    I think corrupt cops are as bad as anyone else corrupt... but did I miss the premis to this whole thing or did everyone miss it? I just don`t know how they "busted" the cops.

    Were the police doing something illegal or what?

    I think this whole video kinda left some crucial background info out...

    Cops are retarded. The heating thing makes no sense since tons of people have plants in thier homes. And how the hell did that girl get 7 years?! did she have pounds and pounds of the poo? It`s like 100$ fine if you get caught with less than a ounce here. Oh well...hope we don`t have to put up with this "marijuana is a dangerous drug" poo much longer...

    This is retarded. First, the Police had a search warrant which has to be signed by a judge. Second, the Police do not sentence anybody to jail. There is a lot of information missing. The Police use the information at the time of the the incident such as weed being on that gal, yes that is probable cause for an arrest. Then it is sorted out in court. You can appeal the outcome of a case. If they wanted to get the people responsible, their show should be called Judgebusters or Jurybusters depending on the type of trial.

    I must have missed something in the explanation. I don`t see how this is shedding any light on "crooked cops". They put out a search warrant on a house that they believe may be involved in drug distribution because the Kopbusters set it up to look that way. ...sounds like the cops are doing their jobs but are getting distracted from the real offenders because of wasted time and efforts on these people. Isn`t a "crooked cop" an officer who is involved in drug distribution?

    7 years for pot? Really? America is so f*<ked up.
    Look, I don`t drink, smoke, or do any kind of drug, but to me it just seems retarded to send someone to prison for weed. I don`t know about you, but the War on Drugs is MORONIC.

    they are starting to become more lax on pot laws here within the last few years.. like now if i get caught with a lil bag of weed its a fine and a civil infraction, instead of a misdemenor and jail stint a few years ago. And also, they can`t lock us up anymore if theres roaches in our ashtrays, home or car. They can`t even charge us with possesion, just give us a health code violation ticket now. My fellow potheads, things are getting better. Maybe one day we will be treated as equals.

    She got the 7 year sentence because of the "intent to distribute/sell", which is usually the assumption if the stuff is packaged separately. If you have 40 ounces in one big bag,that`s misdemeanor "possession". If you have it divided into 4 "dime-bags", that`s criminal "intent to sell". In other words, they charged her with "dealing".

    But I agree that marijuana is no worse a drug than tobacco or alcohol, and needs to be legalized and taxed-all-to-hell.

    Ok, I don`t get it. This is what they say:
    -First they plant the drugs
    -They then tell the cops about the place where they stashed it
    -Cops get a search warrent and search the place
    -Find drugs
    -HOW THE HELL IS THAT SUPPOSED TO SHOW THAT THEY`RE CORRUPT COPS??
    Is it just me or does that explaination fail??
    How is that supposed to prove a point??

    Digganob, first off, being charged with possession and intent to sell is being caught with any large amount depending on state law. It doesn`t have to be divided into different bags. And you can`t feckin fit 40 ounces into one big bag. 40 ounces will fit 3 black garbage bags to the brim. Thats a bit under three pounds, and if you`ve seen a pound, you`ll know what I`m talking about. And 40 ounces cannot be divided into four dimebags. A dimebag is usually a gram, never ever 10 ounces a dimebag. Thats just stupid.

    Also, remember the lady with pot, and this set up of the fake drugs are two separate instances, these idiots are in town because this lady was arrested tried and convicted. But they are there because her daddy is too naive to believe she is guilty.

    Please-this guy is just out to make a quick buck. No doubt he came up with the idea while high. He`s not busting cops... he`s teaching young criminals very, very old tricks. I mean, come one. This stuff is from like the early 80`s.

    The head person of the group was a Texas cop for 8 years who specialized in drug busts, and then quit because he decided that pot was harmless.

    The issue here is that in less than 24 hours from setup, the house was busted. No information was `leaked` to incite a bust. Now, FLIR (`heat cameras`) are *not valid evidence* to produce a search warrant, so they have to say that "an informant told us" (unlikely, as the purpose was to expose illegal searches), or that "I was driving by and smelled it" (impossible, none present).

    The point of the video is this: the search warrant to raid the house was illegally obtained, and therefore the police in question broke the law.

    if someone testified in court that they planted the drugs on the lady isn`t it the court that is corrupt for handing out a conviction to an innocent person. Someone correct me if i`m wrong I don`t know how the american judicial system works. Police do "detections" and courts do "convictions"
