AGW Frames Ex-Girlfriend’s New Boyfriend

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Alert reader AH sent in the following, about a North Carolina AGW named David Scott Burroughs, who bought arbitrarily illegal drugs and planted them in the car of his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend – in order to have him Hut! Hut! Hutted! 

The AGW’s coworkers became suspicious when he told them about “anonymous tips” he’d received in May 2018 that the unnamed victim was “dealing drugs out of his car.”

“This started on a Sunday afternoon,” Anson County Sheriff Landric Reid said, according to FOX13. “By Wednesday, when we made the stop, drugs were at the same place in the car. That was a red flag because anyone selling drugs wouldn’t have them Sunday to Wednesday in the same place.”

The County Sheriff’s office then contacted the State Bureau of Investigation to probe the matter further, who found that Burroughs allegedly purchased heroin and meth and placed them in the victim’s car in retaliation for dating his ex-girlfriend.

“This was a revenge case where he planted drugs in this male’s car,” Reid continued. “This male was dating his ex, and he wanted revenge, and he wanted his ex-girlfriend back.”

Burroughs was promptly fired when the investigation was completed and arrested last week. He has since been released on bail and will appear in court next Tuesday.

  1. I’d challenge anyone on this site to give me an example of something in their life that is NOT regulated.

    Good luck boys and girls.

    • Morning, T –

      I’m thinking… but can’t come up with anything that isn’t to one degree or another micromanaged by busybody control freaks, aka the government.

    • Not to mention that you’re not going to STOP the stuff coming in to the country! For a whole host of reasons, I think it would be best to legalize drugs.

      • Hi Mark,

        It escapes me why some people think it should be an actionable “offense” – that is to say, a crime – to either consume or possess or sell a “drug” or any other thing, provided the individuals involved are doing so of their own free will and their actions, as such, have caused no injury to other people.

        The counterargument, of course, is that those who take arbitrarily drugs “cost” society and that the transaction goes to “violent gangs” and so on.

        All of which are fatuous arguments.

        One could just as logically argue that bacon should be outlawed – and exercise made mandatory – because eating bacon (and not exercising) also imposes costs on “society.” Which is a general claim of course – and one that only works if government forcibly compels Peter to pay for the consequences of Paul’s actions.

        And who is “society”? Who – specifically – has been harmed? By whom, exactly? No answer….

        As regards the other fatuous argument: One could just as logically demand that the sale of anything be illegalized, since the money paid might be used for nefarious purposes (over which, of course, the buyer has no control and therefore no moral responsibility for).

        • If drugs were legalized, the gangs would lose their power overnight. Prohibition gave rise to the mafia, La Cosa Nostra. While the mafia still existed after Prohibition, they lost a lot of their power afterwards.

          The real thing to consider is this: our rights are compromised when substances are illegal. Thanks to Prohibition and the Valentine’s Day Massacre, the first gun control act was passed; gone were the days when you could literally order a Tommy Gun through the mail. Thanks to the ‘war on drugs’, we’ve lost many of our rights; Exhibit A is civil asset forfeiture. I could go on, but you get my point…

        • Hi Eric,

          Well, as Mencken pointed out, “the urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule” and “the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary”.

          First pretend that your goal is saving people, both from themselves and others. Second, identify a particular hobgoblin and claim you can defeat it if given the power. Third, enact a policy that either makes a small problem much worse or creates a new one that did not exist. For instance, the violent gangs you mention above. Fourth claim that, if you hadn’t intervened, the problem would be even worse and that you can completely succeed only if we just get rid of budget constraints and those pesky laws that coddle criminals. Fifth, identify a new hobgoblin.
