Cop who made pot brownies will avoid charges

While I realize and understand that Police Officers are just human and some give in to temptations, what I don't understand is what makes them above the law, as in this case?

DEARBORN, Mich. - A police officer will avoid criminal charges despite admitting he took marijuana from criminal suspects and, with his wife, baked it into brownies.

Not only does this Officer admit to the charge, but first he lied and tried to blame it on his wife (!)

Sanchez later told police investigators that his wife took the marijuana out of his police vehicle while he was sleeping. In a subsequent interview, he admitted he got the marijuana out of the car himself and put it in the brownie mix, police said.
His wife also was not charged.

Apparently this guy isn't a cop any longer but he was at the time of the incident.

Sanchez, who resigned last year from the department in this Detroit suburb, declined comment Wednesday to the Detroit Free Press. Police Cmdr. Jeff Geisinger did not return calls seeking comment.

Maybe it's just me but, if I were caught with pot or brownies baked with pot my ass would be sitting in a jail cell awaiting trial.

This seems to be pervasive in our Society lately, people who are holding positions of authority whether it be a local Police Department or the White House, seemingly, no one is being held accountable for their actions.

I agree Carol. A very dangerous trend is developing here.
