Felony Friday: Man Charged For Killing Deer That Ate His Weed Plants

We have a double whammy this week for Felony Friday. Felony charges were filed against one poor soul, which highlights the State’s refusal to recognize property rights and the idiocy of the drug war.

A Glasco, N.Y. man had his world come crashing down after a neighbor snitched on him for killing the deer that were eating his marijuana plants. Barry J. Brice learned a hard lesson from his run-in with the law. Not only does the State own the deer that destroy your garden, they also dictate what plants are allowed to be grown. The Daily Freeman reports on Mr. Brice’s unlucky day.

Town police said an investigation started with a complaint to state Environmental Conservation Police that Brice had been shooting deer over the summer because they were eating and destroying his marijuana crop. State police conducted air surveillance of Brice’s property Thursday and a search warrant was executed at Brice’s home, where 68 potted marijuana plants were seized. Environmental Conservation Police further discovered that Brice had been butchering, packaging and storing deer meat at his home. Police said possessing untagged and unlabeled venison is a violation of state Environmental Conservation Law.

HOW DARE HE EAT!?

You cannot butcher your own food, you can not eat unless we say you can!

Government Hypocrisy!! I am

Government Hypocrisy!!

I am pretty sure that the Government profiles its victims for libertarian leanings. Just a few weeks back, in another thread, a DP member's dogs were kidnapped by the state for protecting his property. Its like the Government takes whichever side does the maximum pain to the victim.

Govt of the people, against the people and by the tptb.

Except the deer. That poor

Except the deer. That poor deer was just minding his own business when, pow, it gets taken down. I tell ya, we need insurence for deer now and lawyers dedicated to making sure the deer gets the maximum amount of money for their injuries when the state sues on their behalf! Of course that money will need to be taxed and since deer or animals I dont think can legally own money without a sponser, the government will have to take over and keep that money for them.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.
