Cop killed selling drugs in sting; who is the real criminal?

When you have cops driving around trying to sell 500 lbs of drugs, for what they call a  “sting operation”, it makes me wonder who is the real criminal ?

Chandler police detectives were selling 500 pounds of marijuana in an operation called a “reversal” when they became the victims of a botched drug rip-off in south Phoenix, according to court records released Friday

As four undercover detectives and an informant arrived at the house, two officers drove an unmarked vehicle loaded with marijuana into a garage of a house in the 2300 block of West Maldonado Avenue. Soon, shots rang out inside the house, killing Ledesma and injuring two other detectives.

Sgt. Joe Favazzo, a Chandler police spokesman, said the operation did not involve a traditional exchange where dealers sell drugs to undercover agents. In this case, the undercover officers had the drugs and the suspects had the cash.

“This is a reversal,” he said. “This is seized evidentiary marijuana.”

The two people who were allegedly going to buy the weed were gunned down and murdered by the thugs in blue. Do you think this might have been out of retaliation from his cop buddies?

The botched drug rip-off on Wednesday evening also left two suspects dead and another hospitalized, while five others were arrested on charges ranging from first-degree murder to possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

Wait, that last sentence: “charges ranging from first-degree murder to possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.” I thought the cops were the ones who showed up with the drugs and then killed two people. Why isn’t that whole department in jail right now with the same charges? The police were the ones with the drugs.
