The cops were too busy sniffing the air for the smell of growing Cannabis, again?

Bank robberies are a relatively low priority in Nashville...busting Cannabis growers is a top police priority in Music City....the perp was able to casually walk out the door with the cash...the cops were busy effing with the dirty hippies etc.....It's a faith-based police force....Jesus hated a dirty hippie, but apparently he loved bank robbers.... that's the Gospel according to Dean & Haslam.
