Police should be given medal, not sued

Having read the article about the police department of Bennington being sued for the heroin arrest of the man from Brooklyn who traveled here by taxi, it strikes me that Thomas Paine's exhortation for "Common Sense" has long since been forgotten. Instead of vilifying the police, we should be giving them a medal for excellence. They kept 400 bags of dope out of town.
