Agencies Split $11M Taken From Drug Dealer

Quote:

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Several Florida and federal law enforcement agencies split just over $11 million Friday in proceeds confiscated from an imprisoned drug dealer ? the second multimillion-dollar distribution of his assets since last year.

"This is the latest gift that keeps on giving," U.S. Attorney Gregory Miller said. "Crime pays, sometimes, for law enforcement agencies that are involved in complex, long-term investigations."

The largest share of Claude Duboc's assets, $5.8 million, went to the IRS, while the Gainesville Police Department received nearly $3.6 million.

Last year, $15 million taken from Duboc was distributed.

The money distributed came from the sale of roughly $17 million in stock. The drug smuggler also forfeited property worth more than $100 million.

Duboc, who was convicted of conspiracy to import hashish and marijuana, is serving a life sentence in federal prison.

Defense attorney F. Lee Bailey, who represented Duboc, was jailed and eventually disbarred in Florida for transferring about $6 million worth of Duboc's stock to his own Swiss bank account.

Why not make alcohol and tobacco illegal too. The profit that the police detartmants could steal from the sale of those drugs would be way more than that.

"Its a dirty job but someones gotta do it!"

I dont think there is anything wrong with dealing drugs to supoprt yourself. You know the risks involved, and if you find it worth it, that is your choice. Killing on the other hand is not cool, and its a shame that its a large part of the drug game.
