Florida Cops Arrest Man When They Mistake Doughnut Glaze For Crystal Meth
Cops aren’t necessarily the smartest people on Earth, and their idiocy has on display for quite some time now as we’ve seen them try to justify all types of abuses of power and wrongful arrests.
Daniel Rushing treats himself to a Krispy Kreme doughnut every other Wednesday. He used to eat them in his car.

“I recognized through my eleven years of training and experience as a law enforcement officer the substance to be some sort of narcotic,” she wrote.
She asked for permission to search his vehicle, the report says, and Rushing agreed.
“I didn’t have anything to hide,” he said. “I’ll never let anyone search my car again.”
Riggs-Hopkins and other officers spotted three other pieces of the suspicious substance in his car, according to the report.
“I kept telling them, ‘That’s … glaze from a doughnut. … They tried to say it was crack cocaine at first, then they said, ‘No, it’s meth, crystal meth.'”
Rushing was arrested for possession with a firearm and
All that police training…all that time in the field…and cops can’t tell the difference between frosting and drugs.
