Clueless Cops Mistook Jolly Rancher Candy For Meth: Video
"A New York City man arrested this summer for possession of methamphetamine was actually carrying Jolly Rancher candies that cops mistook for a controlled substance, according to a federal civil rights lawsuit.
Love Olatunjiojo was busted in late-June after being searched by cops who approached the 25-year-old and a friend as they walked on a Coney Island street. According to a police report, officers seized six crystalline rocks of solid material. Four of the rocks were blue, while two were red."
The Smoking Gun
Olatunjiojo, who is of African descent, is guilty only of eating candy while black.
While the clueless cops were arresting Love for possessing Jolly Rancher candies, I bet across the street gangbangers were selling crack cocaine and brandishing sawed-off shotguns.
While candy and meth will both ruin your teeth, you`d think the cops would be able to tell the difference.
The officers must have just viewed multiple episodes of "Breaking Bad", not all meth dealers dye their meth blue.
Not even in his worst nightmare would Olatunjiojo have imagined that an innocent trip to a candy store would have resulted in his arrest and strip search. Were the police hoping to find contraband Twizzlers in his rectum?
The hapless dude is suing for emotional trauma and severe mental pain. I hope he wins millions, or at least enough loot to buy his own candy store.
