This is in NY State where poor black kids are in Attica serving 20 years hard time for possesing one rock of crack. This guy tries to buy 400 lbs of weed from a DEA agent and is out on bail will probably get a slap on the wrist. Why?

1. He's white
2. He's the son of a police cheif and former top NYC police brass.

He should serve life just for being STUPID.

Miami Police Chief's Son Admits Attempt to Buy 400 lbs. of Marijuana

Wednesday, December 21, 2005



ALBANY, N.Y. — The son of Miami's police chief on Wednesday admitted trying to buy 400 pounds of marijuana from an undercover agent.

The guilty plea in federal court by Sean Timoney, 25, could send him to prison for up to 40 years. His father is Miami police Chief John Timoney.

The younger Timoney was arrested Nov. 1 in a Rockland County hotel room after handing an undercover Drug Enforcement Administration agent a gym bag containing about $455,000.

Authorities say the cash was partial payment for what Timoney and a co-defendant believed would be the delivery of 400 pounds of marijuana.

The men allegedly planned to distribute the drugs in and around Philadelphia, where Timoney lives.

Timoney faces up to 40 years in prison and a $2 million fine at his sentencing April 10 on a charge of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute marijuana.

His guilty plea, though, could result in a lesser sentence. "The idea is to show remorse and change your life, and that's what he's trying to do," said his lawyer, Edward Hayes.

Timoney remains free on $100,000 bail. Co-defendant Jae Seu, 23, of Glenside, Pa., is also free on bail and his case is pending, said assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Hartunian.

The elder Timoney rose through the ranks of the New York Police Department to become a chief and first deputy commissioner. He later became chief of police in Philadelphia before moving to Miami.

Um...I believe the Darwin award would have been merited, had the 400 pounds of marijuana somehow fallen on his head and killed him.

The state legislature is happy to make exceptions to their laws for the folks in NYC.

The upstate courts are an altogether different story.

...And this is FEDERAL court.

The guy isn't going to get off with a slap on the wrist.

Handing over almost a half million dollars moves him out of the small time crack catagory, but you're right, one way or the other - he'll skate.

Come to think of it in Miami 1/2 mil is small time, isn't it?
