It's hard to respect the constabulary when they're such fucking retards.

Via PZ, we learn ... well, we learn that police are idiots:

Teen with Home Chemistry Lab Arrested for Meth, Bombs

A Canadian college student majoring in chemistry built himself a home lab - and discovered that trying to do science in your own home quickly leads to accusations of drug-making and terrorism.

Lewis Casey, an 18-year-old in Saskatchewan, had built a small chemistry lab in his family's garage near the university where he studies. Then two weeks ago, police arrived at his home with a search warrant and based on a quick survey of his lab determined that it was a meth lab. They pulled Casey out of the shower to interrogate him, and then arrested him.

Wait, wait ... here's the bestest part:

A few days later, police admitted that Casey's chemistry lab wasn't a meth lab - but they kept him in jail, claiming that he had some of the materials necessary to produce explosives.

Dear Law Enforcement People:

The last time I checked my Fruit of the Looms, I personally have the equipment "necessary" to sexually assault women. Please don't draw the inevitable conclusions here.

Ye gods. I have arms... and steak knives... I COULD BE A HOMICIDAL MANIAC!!1!11! Arrest me!

This seems as if the police are trying to turn Minority Report into a reality, even though they're still missing the precognition part. Gah. Dumbfucks.

If this happened anywhere near Delisle, it could explain a lot.
