Well that explains a lot of recent events there

"N.J. doctor supplied steroids to hundreds of law enforcement officers, firefighters"

At least 248 of them, according to the above excellent and well-researched article from Amy Brittain and Mark Mueller at the New Jersey Star-Ledger.

Just what the citizens of that state need - a bunch of roid rage-prone thugs with guns and special powers let loose among them to enforce the very drug laws that the police themselves are breaking.

We especially enjoyed the photos that accompanied the story:

(Greg Pallante/

Here's Officer Rafael Galan of the Passaic County Sheriff's Department, who apparently beat an official misconduct charge alleging he "tipped off the subject of a drug investigation" and so is a current member of that force.  We can't imagine Galan passing a drug test at the time this photo was taken, and wonder if he was ever given one.  

We pity the poor peasant motorist who has to deal with this sort of vain tyrant late at night on a dark road.

But ya know, they still need to use a taser to subdue suspects! :^)

They want to know when we buy a box or two of cold meds, but squeal like stuck pigs (yes, I did that) when someone mentions testing them for steroids.

I disagree with an form of government regulation on what drugs people choose to put in their bodies, so while I am angry about the hypocrisy, that's all I can be angry about here.
