This is one of the most shocking crime stories I've seen in a while:
Police say a Muncie woman was arrested after asking a state trooper whether she could smoke -- and then trying to light up a marijuana joint.
Thirty-two-year-old Honesty Knight was a passenger in a vehicle that Trooper Eric Perkins pulled over for a traffic violation early Friday. While the trooper was talking to the driver, Knight obtained the trooper's permission to smoke.
I mean, honestly, can you even imagine that happened? She asked for permission to smoke, and the trooper gave it? Doesn't he have any sense of respoonsibility for the public's health and well-being? Thank God for all the people who might have been passing by that it was only marijuana instead of tobacco. This officer obviously needs some time off and perhaps even some re-education before he is allowed to continue as a public safety officer.
