Derek Copp, 20, survived the malicious 
bullet from an Ottawa County, MI police thug.
BACKGROUND:

On March 11, Mr. Derek Copp and his roommate were studying, and minding their own business in their apartment just south of Grand Valley State University in Allendale, MI. Ottawa County, Michigan police thugs, known in the area as the “West Michigan Enforcement Team” (WEMET), entered Derek’s apartment around 9pm that night. The thugs had obtained a search warrant to look for narcotics. The shooter shined a bright flashlight into Derek’s eyes, with naturally made Derek try and cover his eyes with his wrist from the bright light. Before Derek even knew what was happening, the trigger-happy police thug fired one shot, striking Derek in his chest. Derek spent the next 8 days at Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital, being treated for two broken ribs and a punctured lung. He was released on March 19. Derek was never charged with any crime. Of course, the POS cop who shot this young man is hanging with all thug cops’ best P.A.L.: PAID ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE.
The thug cops ultimately found out that Derek likes to smoke weed and had a small amount of marijuana in his apartment. Derek’s parents described their son as a “today-hippie” and a “peace loving guy.” The good news is, Derek survived the attack by an Ottawa County police thug, who’s name is still being protected my his department. 
Copp is a film student and says he may use his experience for future movie endeavors. Yes, marijuana (for whatever reason) is illegal. But did this young man deserve to be shot because he likes to smoke a harmless plant? 
President Barack Obama apparently thinks its funny when asked about decriminalization of the plant. Even though a few years back, Obama said he would possibly legalizing the plant when he was campaigning for the U.S. Senate in 2004.
Decriminalizing marijuana would not only cut all the recently publicized “drug violence on the Mexican border” by at least 75 percent, but the plant could be taxed just like cigarettes and alcohol, thus stimulating our economy and helping pay down trillions of dollars in U.S. debt. 
There has been an outpouring of support for Copp from college student all across Michigan. Operation Nation will continue to follow the story, though it’s likely the thug cop will face no criminal charges and likely not even face any sort of reprimand from his department. But that is the way of our police state called the USA. Derek is thankfully recovering well, and in good spirits.
