The truth behind those
anti-drug programs in the schools
Des Moines Register, May 17, 1996
In January, Urbandale, Iowa, police officer James R. Trimble was caught driving around in his car with a battery-operated "sexual device inserted into his body." Police said Trimble took $20,000 worth of methamphetamine from the department's evidence locker and also had marijuana, cocaine, and LSD in his car when he was arrested, along with "scores" of sexually-explicit videotapes and photos.
In May, Trimble was "sentenced" to probation, a $1,000 fine, and 100 hours' community service. Though the police department fired him, his community service will consist of what he used to do as an officer -- give anti-drug motivational speeches in local schools.
