You mad? People have a right to know what's going on around them. Especially If it can affect their children. Like pot.

I guess that means Kelley just got a free supply of weed for a while. He will use it to go on binge and to talk some idiotic girls into trading tickets or weed for sex. Your days r numbered u women beating piece of shit!!!!!!!!!!

i know the guy who grew that stuff pretty well i guess if he had been drinking and beating on his wife or maybe abusing prescription pills hed be ok but he was growing some pot cause he was sick of getting ripped off and get the facts before u judge the mother wasnt actually caught at the trailor with the pot nor were the kids they were found several hours later in another trailor where they were living at the time cause the couple was split up she was charged because she didnt snitch yea DIDNT SNITCH the thing ur momma told u to do the bay police are incompetent losers from high school that are smoking pot i happen to know that x chief kelley kept the pot plants at his home also a thousand feet from a school but its ok for him to cause hes the chief oh wait.... he is a wife beating loser and is in the unemployment line lets worry about real man made drugs not god given gifts anyone who disagrees should play in oncoming traffic and wears granny panties and whitey tighties ATLEAST IT WASNT METH

Lord help me! David never smokes weed or any other drugs. He's never slept with a woman to drp a ticket. The only pills he takes are for high blood pressure!!! He was only doing his job! Just as u would at ur job! He was wrongfully terminated and he's never hit a woman a day in his life! If u people don't want to get busted or see ur friends busted don't be doin what ittakes to get busted! If people would get jobs and work as hard At being honest as they do avoiding the law and going to prison they just might be ableto get somewhere in life! I mean seriously I have seen 14 yr old kids buying pot and pills and meth from greedy ass grown folks to lazy to get a flipping job! Think about what ud do if u caught ur 14 yr old son or daughter buying meth from ur bestie ya know? David could care less about adults that risk their xchildrens health or even their lives in order to obtain money or other drugs. The drug world is dangerous if u mess around with the wrong people u and even ur family can end up hurt or even dead. It only makes sense to try and give the next generation a fighting chance to be better than the last. I'm not perfect no one is and I get y David did what he did. He only wantsto help. These guys see that there is another way.

I would like to say to all of you morons, that last I checked people are innocent until proven guilty in the court of law... This may be a court of public opinion, however all of you are completely misinformed. Did you know that in the Revised Code of Washington 69.50.401 these people were in their rights to grow plants for their own personal use as the "ULTIMATE USER" and it is not illegal to smoke pot either. How in the hell con you manufacure something that grows naturally? Can you manufacture an apple tree? or a rose bush? NO, because it grows in nature... That is why they were charged with intent to deliver, because it isnt illegal to grow pot! Yes ther may have been fifteen plants, However there were two men growing them so split the bill, thats 7 1/2 plants each. 1 1/2 plants more than the state will allow if the marijuana bill gets passed in Nov. Thats right the gov. plans on allowing you to grow six plants per person if passed. Take into consideration that these plants from the pics I saw were immature and about 6 weeks old. I know this because I studied horticulture in college, my second passion besides law. These plants have not begun to sex. Female plants are the ones that produce the buds that are cured and smoked. Male plants just produce seed scks that resemble balls or testicals. They pollenate the plant by shooting the pollen at the females and do not produce a single bud on them. If they were inexperienced growers and Im sure they were, they wouldve used unknown seeds that wouldve produced 1/2 to all males, that is probably why there were 15 plants to ensure one to two good females and each plant wouldve barely produced enough bud for one or two people to have enogh personal smoke for just a while, so they were well within there rights. I read the police repoet as well and they didnt find that poor woman in the same trailor with her children. She was at a friends house were she had been staying because they were split up! And after all the Bay Police Departments actions lately, I dont see how anyone can believe the crap they say. I ll bet he was growing them in his home. David Kelly is crooked. I heard they died. WTG woman beater!!!!!! Your word is shit now huh?!

Let me first say that out of all the comments that I have read, only a few of you make good points. As for the rest of you, you are just a bunch of bored, nosey, uneducated housewives that have nothing better to do with your pathetic lives than to put innocent people on blast! who the hell do you think you are? To the biggest idiot of them all, the one that made that horrible comment about that lady making the best brownies for her children, Shame on you, the bible tells you to judge not least ye be judged. Bet you sit your fat ass in a pew every sunday and talk shit about everyone the other six days of the week, dont ya? Before you pass judgement on others you should check to see exactly what your house is made of! I ll bet youve tried pot, gotten drunk at home with your children there, or just flat out did something your not proud of? If you answer NO you are a fucking liar and the truth isnt in you. Did you know that that poor woman was staying four doors down w/ a friend because they were fighting? Yeah it was in the report, a little thing we call public record. If I were you I would be ashamed for the cruel things that you wrote! as for the other big mouths... That ladt Melissa isnt the one that was charged, you just committed the crime of slander and she should sue your ignorant asses! If that woman has a drug problem that most certainly IS NOT YOUR BUSINESS!!!! Instead of tearing her down on a public forum, pray for her to find the treatment that she needs for the desease that she is afflicted with. Stop gossiping. It makes you sound stupid to others and uneducated and not to mention IMMATURE! Grow up ladies and find something better to do with your time other than embarassing yourselves. Try knitting idol hands are the devils playground

Your Mother told me the news when we spoke. She said that you kept saying Nolle process and that isnt correct, its nolle prossed. She said that you went to court with them for moral support. That is how I knew it was you. Good for you for being a good friend to them.
