HOLYOKE -- City and state police seized approximately 24,000 bags of heroin, $100,000 in cash and arrested a dozen suspects early Thursday during multiple raids in the Churchill neighborhood.
Police also seized a trio of high-end cars, each one black: a Porsche Panamera 4, Audi A7 3.OT and BMW 335.
"We really scooped up a significant organization," Hampden District Attorney Anthony Gulluni said during a press conference at the Massachusetts State Police barracks in Springfield.
Now if after, say, staties ticket a car on I 91, they observe a car violation of the move over law, I am ok with that pull over. The more appropriate method is flooding the airways with advertisements with move over law. It is the ruse that bother me. They are trying to save officers lives by violating the constitutional rights of everyone else. The essence of truth telling. All these guys testify in the court...this behavior impinges their activity in the courts. With these little things, sometimes a mountain of troubles is hidden behind these little integrity issues.
Say they get a big heroin bust on I 91, I honestly think the state should disclose to the violator's attorney a ruse was used to create the opportunity of a search. Then the ruse issue cycles through the court system. It is the secrecy of the government that bothers me so much. It doing things behind close doors that bothers me This isn't the America I want to live in.
Again I really don't think the move over law actually works. It just turns the good citizens into state sponsored robots at the behest of the state. You need a evaluation of the drivers who killed state police on the highways. How do you stop them. I just think the campaign to create the move over law, zip it through political system system...was a money making deal to special people. It creates benefits and stature to special people, has nothing to do protecting out police.
Ya, good cops are needlessly dead, but don't take out your anger on the rest of us.
This is a rendition of altruism or doing good corruption, saying you are trying to protect the police, but the object of the game is to just advance yourself.
***Parking the state cruisers on the side of the road with their emergency lights on for no reason to I pull over citizens on I91 as a ruse to preform a illegal search for heroin is unethical. Then the state policed lied to me concerning why they were there.
How many cars do they pull over for breaking this law per heroin catch? Maybe one in 100?

on April 05, 2017 at 8:52 AM, updated April 05, 2017 at 9:02 AMDEERFIELD -- A passenger in a car that failed to yield for an emergency vehicle on Interstate 91 early Monday was found to be in possession of over 1,000 packs of heroin, state police said.
The incident began shortly after midnight when Trooper Daniel Paras saw the northbound Dodge fail to move over, according to a release issued by state police.
The trooper finished up with the vehicle stop he had been dealing with and ultimately stopped the Dodge north of Exit 26 in Deerfield.
Paras identified the driver and three passengers. Further investigation led to the discover of 1,150 packs of heroin in the car.
One of the passengers, 44-year-old Kevin Rose of Brattleboro, was charged with trafficking in heroin and possession of an open container of alcohol.
The driver was issued a summons for unlicensed operation and failure to move over for an emergency vehicle. A licensed passenger took control of the vehicle.
