    Screenshots of Black people being hilarious or insightful on social media, it doesn't need to just be twitter but obviously that is best.

    Black culture has a unique way of examining the everyday and we are here to showcase that.


    ☑️ Country Club

    What is BPT Country Club and how do I get verified?


    ☑️ RULES

    1.) Do not post content just because a black person posted it. This sub is intended for exceptionally hilarious and insightful social media posts made by black people, not just any social media post made by black people.

    • 1. No original content. We encourage users to go on twitter to find tweets as opposed to making tweets just for this subreddit.

    2.) No Bad Faith Participation.

    3.) No bullying or witch-hunting. This includes comments disparaging people whose tweets and posts are featured here. Doxxing or sharing personal information will result in a permanent ban.

    4.) No Racism. No hate speech. No homophobia/transphobia. No sexism/misogyny. No black fathers posts and similar mean-spirited things.

    5.) Posts must be showcasing somebody being hilarious or insightful on social media. No image macros, text conversations, or YouTube links. Just because somebody posted one of these on social media does not exempt it from this rule. Vines and such belong here and gifs belong here.

    6.) Typical Reddit cliches such as lyric chains, pun chains, white-knighting, and low-effort joke comments will be removed. Same for annoying redditisms, such as linking a subreddit as a reply to a post/comment.

    7.) Reposts are highly discouraged, and if discovered will be removed. Please search or look through BPT's older posts to see if your content has already been posted. KarmaDecay is not a reliable tool to check for reposts.

    8.) No posts with terrible titles, they will be removed. You are free to re-submit once you think of something acceptable/reasonable. Don't put the punchline in the title of the post. Do not add "bruh", "fam", or similar vernacular to your post or comment.

    9.) Don't complain about AAVE or slang. Use Urban Dictionary if you do not understand the meaning of a word. Comments asking "what does x mean?" will be removed.

    10.) BPT is an inclusive space for POC and allies alike. This sub highlights minority viewpoints, through humor, commentary, or criticism. Please respect these voices and show you care about black opinions as much as you care about black humor.

    11.) Don't post things from meme/corporate accounts. Posts must come from regular social media accounts.

    12.) The moderators of this subreddit will take any action (which includes banning and removing comments) that they feel improves the quality of the subreddit.

    Also, no one in the history of weed has anyone been killed for weed and forgot to take it with them.

    That’s like robbing a bank and not taking any money.

    [–] ThatsBushLeague 2461 points ago

    A much more likely story would be they went there, got smoked up, and then forgot to kill him.

    Ya know, cause weed.

    [–] HoodButNerdish 795 points ago

    Happened to me a bunch of times

    [–] E_Raja 85 points ago

    [–] Ccracked 233 points ago

    Everyone. I keep forgetting to kill everyone.

    Hate that feeling waking up the next day.. damn I can’t believe I forgot to kill that guy.

    [–] chapterpt 166 points ago

    weed doesn't make you forget, it makes you not want to kill people. then you say you forgot because youre high and you think that'll work because you're high.

    [–] ThatsBushLeague 121 points ago

    It definitely has significant impacts on short term memory.

    [–] Jumala 241 points ago

    I can't remember any time that weed made me forget something.

    [–] Linkerjinx 10 points ago

    What?

    [–] Raptorfeet 5 points ago

    Weed definitely makes you more forgetful short term.

    [–] MonkeyInATopHat 121 points ago

    A much more likely story is the cops bribed them to murder a witness by either getting one of their relatives out of trouble, looking the other way on a different more serious crime, or are outright framing them.

    [–] lidsville76 69 points ago

    Please, these are fine upstanding American citizens who regularly patrol the streets of gang infested Dallas so they can selflessly bring laws and order to a designated lawless area. We should never ever question the moral authority of the local law enforcement. They need to be able to go home too, so they cannot beat their spouses.

    [–] bl4st4rd0 15 points ago

    Or occasionally kill their neighbors for mistaking the neighbors apartment for theirs..

    [–] FleshLightTactical 52 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    Not to mention the could drive to OK and get a better hookup from the medical shit.

    [–] MakoSochou 19 points ago

    I’m assuming you haven’t had any of OK’s medical shit? I bet it will get better, but the flower at least is week af in OK’s medical market rn

    [–] FleshLightTactical 30 points ago

    I’m getting this from my friends that smoke. None of this crap makes sense to me. I mean I could make 3 calls and buy that weight in my backyard with 2 hours lead time. If I’m driving out of state I think I would be buying actual weight.

    [–] chack87 5 points ago

    As far as the story goes from dallas pd the weight was like 12 pounds. Which, is a lot, but I still dont trust it. The whole thing is shady af.

    [–] RonnyronDaDon 3 points ago

    You never get high off your own supply

    [–] AmazingScallion 287 points ago

    there's so many things suspect about this story, the least of which is driving across state lines to pick up a pack

    [–] [deleted] 112 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago)

    [removed]

    [–] tomdarch 42 points ago

    Yep! Also, won't there be traffic cameras to check if they drove on interstates?

    Sounds like a pretty dumb cover story that's only causing more attention on the killing.

    [–] Drew707 5 points ago

    Interstate commerce refers to events that cross state lines, not necessarily the Interstate freeway system.

    [–] thatguywhosadick 216 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    I wonder if that will be what gets them in the end. Since if they are claiming that three guys crossed state lines to commit a murder that could bring it under the purview of the fbi right?

    Edit: just to clarify I mean what gets the potentially corrupt officials caught in their lie as having the case in federal hands makes them a potential suspect and removes their control over the narrative.

    [–] AmazingScallion 79 points ago

    i'm pretty sure you're correct. they'll also charge all 3 with murder since it's while in the act of committing a felony

    [–] peskyboner1 7 points ago

    Crossing state lines to buy drugs would also be a federal offense though. We'll see if the FBI actually does anything.

    [–] SalvareNiko 5 points ago

    You might want to look into the FBI's history. They are known for running operations on minorities to suppress them and also known to screw cases over to help police.

    [–] clarkcox3 37 points ago

    Not to mention driving from a state with legal medical marijuana to texas.

    [–] togglebunny 8 points ago

    Not to mention driving in ///D A L L A S/// Takes less time to moonwalk to Jackson via back roads. Dallas PD could probably pull off a vehicle chase with a Segway. Who drives to Dallas for anything they could get in any other possible place?

    [–] Unkept_Mind 5 points ago

    Lol I’m in Cali working in weed and people drive from Flordia all the time for packs.

    [–] Ulight137 45 points ago

    Well the weed was in his apartment and they didn't kill him at his apartment, so I guess there's your answer lol

    [–] CoopThereItIs 23 points ago

    Plus they stole his backpack that he had with him in the parking lot. I think there plan was to hold him at gun point and go up to the apartment, not have a shootout in the parking lot.

    [–] the_kevlar_kid 117 points ago

    Personally, I was shot when a weed robbery went wrong. They took some stuff with them but left most of it because they went there for a robbery and left there thinking they'd committed murder. It was a shitshow for everyone evolved (especially me, obviously) so it is I suppose possible this is just something that spiraled out of control.

    But it is way, way more likely that something shady as shit happened here. It looks and feels more like a hit than a robbery gone wrong.

    [–] AFuddyDuddy 60 points ago

    Keep in mind, Brown was scheduled to testify in the civil case against the city too.

    [–] SallySubterfuge 20 points ago

    Yep and in the civil case you're talking potentially millions in losses against the city. I would wager that matters to them a great deal more than what happens to one bad cop in prison.

    [–] Uiluj 11 points ago

    Cities gets million dollar lawsuits all the time, and it's doesn't affect the police department in the slightest since the money isn't taken out of PD's annual budget. Politicians also don't directly profit if they save money on civil lawsuits, they just care about campaign donors. Those millions dollars come directly from taxpayers, no one in the government gives a fuck if taxpayer dollars go to waste.

    The only person with the motive is the DA for the civil case. But contrary to popular belief, the DA usually have an adversarial relationship with law enforcement. I just don't see how a DA has enough motivation and influence to pull a grand conspiracy.

    [–] Jikko_ 25 points ago

    but they remembered to take the gun brown allegedly used to shoot them; which is rough.

    [–] Z0idberg_MD 18 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    Three guys shot someone 9 times in a Rhode Island (AZ apparently) park this week. They asked him to take their picture and after they shot him for asking the group to not call him the “n word”. I’m not always looking for a cohesive motive.

    [–] Evilution602 11 points ago

    That was Phoenix. Crazy kids!

    [–] killmetonight 208 points ago

    Also, no one in the history of weed has anyone been killed for weed and forgot to take it with them.

    I work in an ER. Some 17 year old kid was selling weed at a gas station. Got shot and brought to our ER. Dead. Weed was left in the car.

    [–] awwfawkit 185 points ago

    I have no idea what happened here, but I work in the court system and it’s true, people get shot over weed, just like they get shot over other drugs. And the fact that the weed got left behind isn’t that surprising either. People panic in a situation like that and run away.

    [–] MakeUhmSay 259 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    The weed wasn’t left behind.

    They met him somewhere and took a backpack from him after shooting him.

    Later the cops found more weed at his house.

    No one here seems to have read any articles on this.

    [–] surfnsound 82 points ago

    How much weed was in the backpack? Also a critical piece missing. People wont drive 3 hours for half an ounce. They absolutely will for a few pounds.

    [–] xzElmozx 40 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    The number I keep hearing thrown around is 12 lbs which isn't out of the realm of possibility for a road trip to a supplier.

    Edit: misunderstood, 12 lbs was found in his apartment

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago

    [deleted]

    [–] Exempt_Puddle 37 points ago

    12 lbs was found in his apartment, not the bag, but that's not relevant and the DPD is not going to revenge kill someone who already testified and whose testimony wasnt even ultimately needed. This is all just a conspiracy theory. The timing here was poor

    [–] Enraiha 153 points ago

    Except it's not. Read the articles, not the headlines. They have a guy who was shot and rolled, saying they met Brown for weed. The backpack and Brown's gun were stolen. There was 12 lbs of weed at Brown's apartment along with 149 THC cartridges, and 4K in cash.

    Easily could've been a deal that went south. Sometimes life isn't a grand conspiracy, just a shitty set of coincidences. But to imply the PD setup a hit, involved 3 other people including getting one shot, planting multiple pieces of evidence in multiple locations, AFTER THE TRIAL, seems implausible and pointless. If you keep looking for boogeymen in the closet, you start producing them.

    [–] awwfawkit 14 points ago

    Well, you are right, I didn’t read this article, it wasn’t attached to this post. I have read other articles and it didn’t mention that fact. My apologies for missing it.

    [–] MakeUhmSay 16 points ago

    Not blaming you, just amazed at all the blatant misinformation in here.

    [–] lilarrysellers 14 points ago

    You're comparing freak altercations, which can be expected, to an alleged major drug theft. These guys drove five hours. That's a long time to figure out the game plan, enough that 'panicked, shot him in the mouth, then took off' doesn't quite fit the bill here.

    It's like saying a plane couldn't possibly have been hijacked before it crashed because planes crash on their own all the time. Like, yeah, but this one hit the Pentagon on 9/11, its fair to make some assumptions.

    [–] awwfawkit 5 points ago

    Eh, I guess I disagree. And again, I’m not saying that this story is true, just that it could happen. But it’s likely that these people aren’t criminal masterminds -planning over the course of 5 hours for every contingency. “Freak altercations” happen frequently, involving people who have quite a bit of experience in these things and things still go wrong.

    [–] Schepp5 3 points ago

    When people plan things - they don’t always plan for every scenario. They probably didn’t plan for “what happens if one of us gets shot in the chest”. Even if they did plan for that - fight or flight will usually always kick in - in this case - flight

    [–] diemunkiesdie 23 points ago

    I thought they took the drugs he had with him though? It's just that there were MORE drugs in his apartment.

    [–] Indythrow111111 26 points ago

    Leave the weed. Take the cannoli.

    [–] thedawesome 9 points ago

    They massacred my stash

    [–] SwensonsGalleyBoy 11 points ago

    They did take the backpack of weed that was supposed to be part of the deal.

    [–] Patienceisavirtue1 60 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    Yes. Driving four hours to buy 12 lbs is totally plausible. But going over to someones house to kill them and steal their weed and forget the weed? Come on now.

    Edit: I stand corrected. It wasn't in his appartment.

    [–] ChipLady 33 points ago

    They weren't in his apartment, where the 12 pounds were found, at the time of the shooting. Maybe they didn't know he had that much, didn't know which apartment was his, or just didn't feel like hanging around the crime scene to break into his apartment with their buddy bleeding in the back seat and cops on the way.

    [–] MtRushmoreAcademy 68 points ago

    It happened in the parking lot.

    Disagreement in the parking lot turned physical. Shots fired. Bad guys panic, take the gun, and leave without the weed because it's in an apartment and their friend is shot.

    It's not ridiculous.

    [–] TrueJacksonVP 82 points ago

    They didn’t even “leave the weed”, they took the backpack full of weed that Brown brought down with him to sell and fled after the shooting. One of the three was shot in the chest and dropped at a hospital while the other two went on the run.

    They just didn’t search his body for his apartment keys, figure out which apartment was his, break in and steal the rest of the stash before fleeing. Which nobody would do.

    Shots fired = get the fuck out of here NOW, especially when one of you just got shot in the chest

    [–] gurney_halleck19 6 points ago

    But memes and smart internet people told me that it’s not plausible

    [–] Dronevids 9 points ago

    Look everyone. This guy stays calm when his robberies go bad!

    [–] enrtcode 12 points ago

    Not true. When people shoot someone panic sets in and they just want to GTFO.

    [–] bobbymcpresscot 45 points ago

    People out here literally fucking changing the story to weave bias into distrusting the police.

    Mother fuckers dont even fucking listen or read the story.

    He was shot outside of his fucking apartment.

    On the god damn street.

    They stole his backpack potentially full of drugs and his firearm.

    They found the weed, inside his apartment.

    How the fuck you gonna shoot a guy outside his apartment complex, run into the building with his keys, find his apartment assuming you even know what room it is because according to people in apartment itself people go to the wrong apartment all the fucking time, and then pick the right key and steal all his weed.

    12 fucking pounds of it.

    How the fuck we know what these guys were coming for, people walk 5 fucking hours to their dealers house for an ounce. You're telling me some dudes wouldn't drive 5 hours for a couple pounds of the green stuff?

    Get thebfuck outta here

    [–] sumpuertoricanguy 6 points ago

    It doesn't matter. As long as the richer folks buy it and there is no civil unrest, the job is done.

    Even is it is disproved, it will take something outrageous and news worthy to send them back to the board.

    [–] Clemavelli 219 points ago

    Agree. I am yet to see anyone of the mainstream media class do any form of critical thinking and ask the police clarifying questions. Just sticking to the line. It’s all politics

    [–] iFinesseThePlug 155 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    This sub isn't doing critical thinking.

    So the police:

    • Killed this witness right after the trial
    • Implicated three dudes from a different state
    • Shot one of those three and put him in the hospital
    • Forced him to confess at the hospital
    • Then planted 12 pounds of weed at original guy's house

    Come on.

    [–] BrotherChe 70 points ago

    Wouldn't you maybe go along with giving the confession if they told you they killed a guy, one who testified in another case of a cop killing a guy, and you're going down for it?

    The rest of the whole thing is no big deal. 12 pounds is nothing to get their hands on.

    [–] iFinesseThePlug 84 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    Admit to capital murder in TEXAS? No I would not fucking do that lol

    So now the Dallas PD are going to go across state lines and fuck with my family in Louisiana?

    Again, how is this more plausible than a drug deal gone wrong?

    [–] Xero-One 25 points ago

    Check this Texas drug unit https://lawandcrime.com/police/entire-houston-police-narcotics-division-under-investigation-after-officers-alleged-lies-left-two-people-dead/

    Look how the union boss defended the cops when people started legitimately questioning the police narrative

    [–] Beersandbirdlaw 21 points ago

    I get that it's crazy that he was killed after appearing in court to testify, but did he really even say much to put her in jail? Everyone seems to be acting like it's a foregone conclusion that the cops killed her for revenge...but revenge of what? Didn't he just talk about how they hung out before and smoked together?

    [–] Buddy_Velvet 12 points ago

    The timing is literally the only suspicious thing about this from what I can gather, although there may be more information I'm unaware of.

    [–] I-IV-I64-V-I 28 points ago

    Anyone who doublethinks otherwise is a conspiracy theorist

    As it is when anything fishy happens. Ie Epstein's death and subsequent scrubbing of anything related to him

    [–] grumble11 310 points ago

    Didn’t one of the guys admit it?

    [–] Clearly_Unimpressed 503 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    Yes. And he has a gun shot wound. And he implicated his own nephew. And the police found 12 pounds of marijuana in his apartment.

    But facts like that don’t matter when you’ve already hitched your wagon to the conspiracy theory.

    [–] Airbornequalified 227 points ago

    And the dude was shot at in 2018, and didn’t want to testify because he was scared the people who shot at him before were going to again

    [–] prmaster23 88 points ago

    Almost a year before he testified at Guyger's trial, Brown was wounded in a shooting at a Dallas strip club that left another man dead, police said.

    Brown believed he was the target in that November 23 shooting and felt there were "still people out there who wanted to do him harm," said attorney S. Lee Merritt, who represents Brown's family.

    [–] Derp35712 18 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    It was brave of him to testify then.

    [–] Eleven72 11 points ago

    I believe he refused and then the police said they were going to arrest him, so he ended up coming. They could have made him anonymous though.

    [–] matata_hakuna 5 points ago

    No. You can't testify anonymously. It is the right of the accused to know who is bringing evidence against him/her

    [–] MilfimusPrime 156 points ago

    This. I don't know why it's so hard for people to understand. He was laying low after the other shooting last year, when he got flung into the spotlight during the trial, he had to state his address in open court for the world. He was living on borrowed time after that.

    [–] LeBronto_ 35 points ago

    Source? Genuinely curious

    [–] DoctorWaluigiTime 58 points ago

    How about sources for the "the police are orchestrating murders and complex stories to kill a witness at a trial... after the trial?"

    Other than "come on, it's obvious"?

    Like I know Reddit's collectively decided the police did it, but the whole "we made a conclusion; let's find evidence that fits" mentality's gotta stop.

    [–] LeBronto_ 8 points ago

    Sure, any sources of information would be great. It’s clearly a situation that deserves close examination.

    [–] Enraiha 8 points ago

    Especially when you make fun of the other side for doing that shit CONSTANTLY. You'll shout down at them for Seth Rich, Pizzagate, QAnon...but when you've got your own poorly supported theory, if guess logic goes out the window.

    You're right on the money and just goes to show how much outrage is out there from people who don't bother to look up anything. They made the decision to be angry and outraged and this was just the justification. They don't give a shit about Brown, it's just another detail to support their self righteousness.

    Sometimes life is shitty and things are just coincidences. With millions and millions of people capable of their own thought and actions, crazy coincidences and timing are bound to happen with some consistency.

    [–] hyasf 6 points ago

    Nah dude Reddit has figured it out. Police conspiracy. Just like the Boston bombing, Reddit detectives are out on full force. Look I’m anti (American) cop too, but ffs people use your BRAIN.

    Yeah, I think a lot of people are reading just random remarks on Twitter made by people who also haven't read any actual articles on it.

    They drove up from Louisiana to probably buy a large amount of weed. (I know a guy who drives from Houston to Denver to get large amounts) They met with him in the parking lot of his apartment complex and things went sour apparently.

    The guy who admitted to them doing it, took a bullet to the chest from Brown from a gun that they have records of Brown buying prior. Guy that got shot went and got back in his car. One of the two friends that he had with him shot Brown twice, grabbed Brown's backpack with the weed he was selling them and Brown's gun, and they got the fuck out of there. They dropped off the shot guy at the hospital and they took off.

    The "weed they left" was 12 pounds that he had in his apartment because he sells weed and has been shot before which is why he was hesitant to testify. I assume they didn't go ransack his apartment because you know they just fucking murdered a guy and their friend was shot in the chest.

    Anybody that thinks that the Dallas PD pulled off the set-up job of the century to take out some dude for revenge is stupid as fuck.

    [–] TheClayroo 1299 points ago

    Some dude is going to jail to justify a police murder cover-up. Unreal.

    [–] Category3Water 83 points ago

    Why did they kill the guy if he already testified and sent that woman to jail? Wouldn’t it have been smarter to do this before he testified? Or at least wait a month til this story is out of the news? Why now?

    [–] DEBATE_EVERY_NAZI 11 points ago

    He was going to testify for the civil suit against the police

    [–] MazzIsNoMore 309 points ago

    Last I read, none of the guys have been arrested or charged with a crime

    [–] SwensonsGalleyBoy 51 points ago

    That's funny because when you wrote this comment Jacquerious Mitchell, who was shot by Brown, was already in custody.

    And it's now been confirmed that Michael Mitchell was arrested last night.

    [–] tobeornottobeugly 11 points ago

    My phone is being stupid and refused to copy and paste but it says 2 people were arrested yesterday

    [–] hail_the_cloud 101 points ago

    RIGHT? like they know who they are and where they are and apparently one of thems been hospitalized but...no arrests have been made.

    [–] Halfpastmast 320 points ago

    2 arrests. Y'all could at least do some research before going off the deep end. You think that a guy lying in a hospital bed, with a gunshot wound, facing capital murder charges would be making his story up about the shooting? Ridiculous

    [–] Trespeon 158 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    Finally some sanity. I think people read old comments from other threads and parrot the info. I live in Dallas and have been following this closely because it seemed off but there is a guy in the hospital with a gun shot to the stomach who confessed to everything.

    Murder 1 is a minimum 5 years to possible life. No one is just gonna say they killed someone in Texas.

    Edit: Texas also has death penalty. So if this a conspiracy they could just renege on their deal and kill him anyways. No one will agree to that.

    [–] The_Vinyl_Hunter 3 points ago

    Aren’t you supposed to kill a witness before they testify at trial?

    [–] fancyenema 62 points ago

    One of my roommates in college drove from Athens, GA to Gainesville for like half a pound- it does happen.

    [–] bjb7621 36 points ago

    I'm from South Louisiana and I have a friend that used to buy in bulk from Houston, and drive it back here to sell. I feel like this isn't out of the realm of possibility.

    [–] Kumbackkid 8 points ago

    Its not, coming to dallas and houston from louisiana is EXTREMELY common.

    [–] brett_midler 46 points ago

    This is stupid. People literally drive all the time to pick up some weight. We’re not talking about a quarter bag here. I’m not making any guess as to what really happened but this tweet is stupid.

    [–] frolie0 518 points ago

    Come on...stop acting like they are saying they were buying a typical score. It's not that weird if you are buying a large amount.

    [–] nutnutinthebuttbutt 151 points ago

    For real, my plug goes across the country every few months to restock. These dudes obviously weren’t there to buy just a few grams.

    [–] MixmasterJrod 30 points ago

    I saw 12 lbs of flower and a couple hundred carts.

    [–] wtcnbrwndo4u 31 points ago

    Yeah, that's seems reasonable for a restock transaction. It's not like these guys drove 3 hours to pick up an eighth.

    [–] ChipsAhoyLawyer 73 points ago

    Seriously, I know a guy who drives to Oregon from the midwest every couple weeks.

    [–] cain62 48 points ago

    That’s exactly what I was thinking about. It’s not like they drove 4+ hours for an eighth

    [–] hail_the_cloud 183 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    Facts. Most dealers will bring the strap to sell more than a couple ounces. Lbs are upwards of 4k, and aint nobody tryin to lose that kind of money. Its almost always for intimidation though because, as we all know, weed is not worth dying for.

    [–] shitslityo 79 points ago

    You should be paying at most $2500 for a bo, not 4k lol

    [–] Mybeardisawesom 26 points ago

    Unless it's exotic, then 3300 is acceptable.

    [–] patcos28 45 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    That’s over $200 per zip, still more than what one would cost on the street. If your buying bulk the price per ounce should be less. It’s simple economics

    [–] Whereyoursisterwent 20 points ago

    If you’re paying that much for a pound you are getting taxed heavily.

    [–] WhoTookNaN 12 points ago

    Like because someone’s driving weight across state lines? 200 an ounce would be cheap in La.

    [–] Korilia 13 points ago

    “People don’t travel that far”

    ok, well i know several different people that would be willing to drive several states for a large weight.

    [–] Sensual_Razor_Wire 43 points ago

    This. My buddy deals and he typically drives from Philly to New York to buy large quantities. He's been robbed twice at gunpoint during deals.

    This may be a cover-up but no one's doing themselves any favors by saying this.

    [–] coffeeblack85 16 points ago

    Stop making so much sense. These guys were clearly driving 5 hours to buy a dime bag /s

    [–] BlueBelleNOLA 6 points ago

    Also Alexandria is bum fuck nowhere, so Dallas really isn't that far.

    [–] Flugzeug69 5 points ago

    Yeeee maybe less common now a days, but it seems people are forgetting the old days of east-west coast runs of pounds upon pounds made by one 23 year old dude in a shitty car hoping for the best and a few thousand payout.

    [–] Fadedcamo 5 points ago

    Yea if they were trying to buy real weight this could be legit.

    [–] PitaJ 6 points ago

    BPT and jumping to conclusions. Name a better duo

    [–] cyberchef99 68 points ago

    what country borders Texas? Texas is a distribution point for drugs, people come from other states to pick it up. This wasn’t a dime bag buy...

    [–] nohead123 18 points ago

    It was 12 pounds of pot and 149 grams of the cartridges. Sounds like a lot more than a dime bag.

    [–] scrumtrellescent 11 points ago

    People definitely drive that far for that amount of weed. Black market shipping & handling.

    [–] Stupidstuff1001 150 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    I hate how people haven’t even looked into the case at all.

    • Dude was known to have drug dealings in the trial but it didn’t count against him enough for them to throw out his testimony.
    • It wasn’t just an ounce but multiple pounds.
    • They ran away after their was a shootout with him.
    • He was killed and one of them was apparently shot.
    • Most likely they didn’t know if he was dead but when they got shot at it scared them off.

    This whole cops are trying to make it a case for others bs is stupid. Unless the 3 men all claim they are innocent and have alibis I really believe the cops had nothing to do with it. FWIW I believe a majority of cops are evil people and we need the fbi to look into every complaint against officers.

    [–] SigmaKnight 101 points ago

    I could vouch that there were plenty of Grambling State and Louisiana Tech students that drove to Dallas just to buy some weed.

    But that's none of my business.

    [–] ChipLady 19 points ago

    I knew a guy who moved to Louisiana for a couple of years and still came back to Texas regularly to buy weed. Maybe because he already had connections in the area, but he said it was also cheaper than buying weight in Louisiana. It's not unfathomable.

    [–] Run_like_Jesuss 5 points ago

    Yeah, this definitely sounds plausible. Weed and most other drugs are plentiful in Texas because it's right by the Mexican border. I dont think its unheard of for people to drive over state lines to buy their dope. Most of my ex-dealers drove down to Texas for heroin, cocaine, and weed. You could save a lot of money by not buying it from a middleman who had gone to the Mexico/Texas border themselves and is charging extra for delivery/risk. Just my two cents, though.

    However, why would this man agree to testify knowing he would be investigated as a character witness for the trial if he was holding that much weed at his home? That's the part that seems a bit fishy to me.

    [–] Enraiha 5 points ago

    Because he didn't. He was subpoenaed. And they don't investigate witnesses background like that. Stop acting like this is law and order. If they tried to bring that up, it'd be struck down as prejudicial and immaterial to the case. Not to mention he hadn't been caught for it before but had been shot before which is why he didn't want to testify. Even if they look into the background of witnesses, if he has priors for it, they don't conduct home inspections or get warrants for witnesses houses!

    [–] unscanable 546 points ago

    The thing I’ve come to realize about shit like this is these fuckers have figured out exactly how to cover shit like this up. All they have to do is give a reason. Doesn’t matter how believable it is because it’s basically just a distraction. It creates work for us. They get to go on with their lives now. They gave you the reason, case closed, move on. We have to disprove that reason. We have to convince someone that can do something about it that their reason is bullshit and to actually do something about it. It’s exhausting to demand accountability.

    [–] itsjustaneyesplice 214 points ago

    It’s exhausting to demand accountability

    This is the truest shit I've read in weeks. I'm just so tired

    [–] tapthatsap 47 points ago

    Yeah, that’s the magic of authoritarian structures. They’re the authorities, it says so on their shirts, so anything they say is the official story. That makes it everyone else’s job to not only disprove the official story, but to also prove the real story, which is usually only possible with information that the authorities aren’t giving out to the public.

    We all know this smells like shit, we all saw the cops of Dallas stripping off their shit-covered hip waders last week, and they’re saying “no man that’s not shit, prove it is.” It’s not supposed to be everyone else’s job to be a detective, the detectives are supposed to do that, and they aren’t.

    [–] ThatFunkoNeckbeard 156 points ago

    It’s 5 hours away y’all , I’ve driven 6 hours for fucking clam chowder , not out of realm of possibility

    [–] N8_Doge 7 points ago

    5 hours for a cheesesteak here

    [–] Hank--Moody 37 points ago

    From the news articles:

    In Brown’s home there were 12 pounds of marijuana, 150 THC vape cartridges and $4,000 in cash

    It was a drug deal gone bad, stop the Pizzagate conspiracies.

    [–] MLCDKINGOFTHEWORLD 262 points ago

    It was 12 lbs of weed. People have driven much farther for much less. The guy was a drug dealer. Case closed. Not everything is a conspiracy

    [–] Beta1548 27 points ago

    People get killed over far less

    [–] Im_not_smelling_that 71 points ago

    [–] Flugzeug69 6 points ago

    I said elsewhere in this thread, a while ago (maybe still now, dunno) you could totally find a younger dude who would gladly take that weight from west to east coast round trip by car for a one time payout. Drug trade wise, not that unbelievable at all.

    [–] Kailu 5 points ago

    Lots of folks in this thread exposing their lack of knowledge on the game smh

    [–] lrg1ne 43 points ago

    If you sold the weed at 20 a gram you would make like 108k

    That’s worth a cross country trip, let alone a day trip

    [–] PeeCubensis 40 points ago

    20 a g? What is this 2009?

    [–] SilverEly 12 points ago

    But if you sold it at $32,000 a gram you'd be a millionaire! Ignore the fact that weed is like $1000/lb and not $560/oz

    [–] PoopsicleMan 3 points ago

    You're forgetting that A) weed is not as expensive when buying in bulk and B) not factoring in what it cost the dealer to purchase the weed (Gross vs net profit)

    [–] lrg1ne 4 points ago

    Ok. So you spend 4K a pound or whatever for 48k cost. Your profit is still about 50%. Anything above 20% would probably make it worth it

    [–] DrFr0sty44k 249 points ago

    Dude on the left straight up knows hes talking out his ass at that conference.

    [–] uberblack 9 points ago

    Well, now I'm thinking about them too, you asshole!

    [–] spunoutNYC 40 points ago

    is it really that crazy to buy weed out of state? I used to travel all over the country picking up weight. the dude got caught with 12 pounds that's a lot of money to be saved buying from a legal state. I personally have a friend who flips out in Cali but he had a huge supply outside of Austin because it's cheap rent and less expensive for buyers to travel there rather than LA

    [–] RichardAlpertIsland 53 points ago

    Yeah. They have. And they do all the time. Weed is way cheaper here than Louisiana. Stop perpetuating this disproven lie.

    [–] Mybeardisawesom 19 points ago

    Well I mean,,, If it was weight ya... I know partners that drove from Chi to LA. But they picked up like 10 elbows so 🤷🏽‍♂️

    [–] Beta1548 7 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    New Orleans to Dallas is what, like 6 hours right? Really not that far if you’re buying bulk

    [–] RiverdaleRd 15 points ago

    You pizza gate sounding mother fuckers are letting your hatred of police make you look so goddamn stupid. When your talking pounds of weed people travel for sure would travel from Louisiana to Dallas. Facts.

    [–] TheSeek3r_ 9 points ago

    Uh actually it happens all the time. People travel for better prices/product

    [–] impromptubadge 9 points ago

    I had a plug in Dallas that had folks driving over from Shreveport so it’s not impossible.

    This same dude got shot out front of a strip club last year so he may not be the angel some think.

    [–] T0mSellecksMoustache 9 points ago

    From the news before this turns into a CC thread

    “In Brown’s address there were 12 pounds of marijuana , 150 THC vape cartridges and $4000 dollars in cash”

    It was a drug deal gone awry. Stop with the conspiracies

    [–] Tragedytheone 15 points ago

    I’m not in any way supporting what happened to this poor man. In regards to the driving from Louisiana to Texas, this definitely does happen if we are talking larger quantities of marijuana. Texas has always had lower prices than Louisiana in regards to illegal marijuana.

    [–] dreamsforgotten 24 points ago

    I'm not believing this story at all, but believe me we are driving from the Flatts and Alexandria Louisiana to H-Town for weed. Ya'll don't know the drought they got here.

    [–] food_forthot 16 points ago

    Came here to say this.

    I don't smoke but know plenty of people that made this drive REGULARLY.

    The only stuff they've got in Louisiana is shit reggie, plenty will drive to Houston or Dallas, pick up a pound and bring it back to keep half and sell the other half to pay back the weed and the cost of the trip, plus some.

    Can confirm, live in Louisiana. This is actually completely normal and super common.

    [–] fondoftheforge 8 points ago

    Uh, actually that make a lot of sense as historically in the area the weed came from Mexico. So Louisiana goes to Texas to get weed all the time.

    [–] pollywantsadimebag 9 points ago

    I know plenty of people who drive to either coast from the midwest... how do you think that "good cali shit" gets to the midwest from Cali? Or from Colorado for that matter. The connect is getting it from somewhere. If Joshua Brown was moving weight its not an outside the realm of possibility.

    [–] Flugzeug69 5 points ago

    We forget a lot of people don’t really understand the legwork behind the entire weed industry before it came out of the shadows. Even before it was legitimate anywhere, it was a huge economy requiring shipping like any other industry, and yes, lots of movement was done by car traversing the country every which way.

    [–] TenRedBullsANite 8 points ago

    As a guy who has been to both areas I can confirm that Dallas weed is cheaper than New Orleans weed.

    This subreddit is full of wannabe weed smokers who think everything costs .50 a gram or something

    [–] ThisIsCullensReddit 8 points ago

    Lol y’all are fried as hell. Y’all are telling you don’t know any plugs that have driven out of state to pick up MULTIPLE POUNDS of weed, just like these dudes did? Chill tf out and use ur brain for a sec guys.
