All of our glass

all over the kitchen
floor, and I had a safe
that they did a num-
ber on.
- "Rob"
University student charged
with possesion of mari-
juana with intent to deliver
and operating and main-
taining a drug house.

At Tim's first court date he was
told that if he cooperated with the
police his charges would be reduced.
Police wanted him to help to find
a drug dealer involved in a larger
Tim told the police that any
higher-up drug dealers would have
already heard about his investiga-
tion and would find it suspicious if
he tried to buy additional drugs from
"They had released all of our
names to the paper," he said. "They
wanted the publicity, and they
ruined their chances of getting any-
one higher up,"

Tim had an idea of who had told
the authorities about his own drug
use because one of his friends had
been busted in July and had been
acting strangely since.
After the bust in April, Tim
approached his friend at a bar and
confirmed his suspicion. His friend
ratted out about half the people
busted in this investigation, accord-
ing to accounts from three of the
Adam said he and his house-
mates knew that Tim's friend had
been raided, but they didn't think
he would tell the authorities about
them. "We didn't think we were

doing anything that would warrant
the police coming in and spending
all of these resources on college kids
smoking pot," he said.
Tim's sentence was also dropped
down to probation as a result of
the Holmes Youthful Training Act,
which provides that individuals
between the ages of 17 and 20 can
be given orders of rehabilitation in
the place of a criminal conviction.
The charges brought against Tim
will not appear on his record unless
he repeats the offense.
ob arrived home one
morning to discover a
similar sight in his off-
campus home. It was
the middle of February,
and Rob and his house-
mate had been out all
night. When they arrived at home
in the morning, they found a search
warrant on their table.
"All of our glass (was) smashed up
all over the kitchen floor, and I had
a safe that they did a number on," he
said. "They threw my trash all over
the place."
The authorities found a couple
of ounces in his room, but there
wasn't a scale or any money, Rob
said. "This was possession," he said.
"This wasn't some sort of operation

or anything."
About two months later, the police
showed up again. This time Rob was
in bed. At 6 a.m. the police raided
his home and after finding another
piece of paraphernalia, they arrested
Rob. He was charged with posses-
sion with intent to deliver and oper-
ating and maintaining a drug house.
He was held in jail overnight.
Rob's arrest followed a sting oper-
ation involving a friend who had
turned into a police informant. The
day of the original raid in February,
Rob's friend came to the house, pur-
chased marijuana with marked bills
and then went back to the police with
the information As a result, Rob
was charged with intent to deliver
despite the absence of scales and
drug money.
AAPD Lt. John Seto said the
charge of intent to deliver is based
on any evidence of dealing mari-
juana, independent of amount found.
He said indications of dealing could
be the way in which the drugs are
packaged or the presence of drug
money. .
Because of a late change of attor-
ney Rob is still waiting for his new
court date. He plans to take the case
to court because he said he thinks
the informant's history with drug
abuse makes him an unreliable

Who's rollin' out tonigh
With Superman and Batrr

By superman
t may not be Saturday morning, but you
know what, give me Luda and all of his
bows. Yeah, Superman is pretty white, but
so is Eminem and he can pull it off.
Luda and I go way back, all the way
to Atlanta. It all started when one of
his hoes in another area code was in
trouble. Luda wanted this booty bad,
so Supa (that's what he calls me) came
through. I saved her from some guy
humping her leg in a club, and Luda
got what he wanted, luscious booty and
But that's not even the point; Luda spits
some good lyrics. Is he 2Pac? No, but who


is? Batman you're a liar if you're saying
you didn't like "Roll Out," "Saturday," or
"Southern Hospitality." Plus, he's funny
and can make you laugh or make you cry
(see "Growing Pains").
Batman, I know you're going to pretend
like you're more street than Luda. Sure,
I believe that as much as Melinda from
"The Real World" not doing fewer than 20
dudes. Ratman (zing), I know you rock to
ABBA, and - when you're feeling really
hard - some Nickelback.
Give me Luda and his smooth southern
style, and you can keep Celine Dion.

date to break it to everyone who's hoping to

acris concert, but Batman will not be in atten-
Don't get me wrong. I like rap music. On
weekends, I've been known to shout out"Whoop,
there it is" with Ironman and The Green Lan-
tern. I own NWA CDs and I could even easily
pass as a member of Wu-Tang. There's like 35
members anyway, so I can easily blend in.
Reason No 1. you won't find me there: the
price. Do you have any idea how expensive it is
to keep up that manor? The Batmobile doesn't
fuel itself, you know. If I have an extra 30 bucks
laying around, you'll find me at the bar doing
