When I read the Sept. 19 medical marijuana story, I got the same sickening 
feeling one gets when they are a witness to man's inhumanity to man.

This man, Michael Farrell, is obviously someone that has a number of 
problems and is clearly in need of some help. The article reads as though 
the nine agents and deputies were suffering a great hardship by having to 
tolerate a yard with dog feces.

What was the purpose of this article? Was it because 30 pounds of marijuana 
and 18 plants are such a huge "drug bust"? Or was it to publicly humiliate 
someone by exploiting their living conditions?

I certainly do not feel that this world is a safer place as a result of 
these heroics.
