that's right up there with an email from a guy who says he's a Nigerian

And if you add to the mess by saying you're an expert when you don't know squat, and act like assholes during the raid, and lie about not having photos of the seized property at the time of seizure, then you're both a sorry excuse for a lawman and generally a lying dirtbag.
