      I've known Jake since he was born. He is a gentle soul and just is NOT prison material. His possession was wrong but certainly not of criminal intent and his arrest was not the reason for the search.

      I believe the police raid violated the Bill of Rights and the Mayor should, therefore immediately, resign.
