So far the prosecutors record is 3/6 (for felonies). Two weren't the brightest bulbs, the third got real unlucky. That's not counting people I met subsequent to their involvement with courts. Couldn't begin to calculate my 'got away with it total', depends on how you count the counts.
It would be fair to say: I don't have an excessive respect for the law. Also mild case of explosive pyromania as a teen (nothing bigger than two kilos of explosive). I know I've dodged some bullets, once spotted 'shiney shoes' on the way up to the Sierra and detoured (pre 215). Garden was fine, there was a flash of mutual recognition (they saw me 'see them') but I didn't lead them anywhere. I think they were looking for tweak labs, not gardens in any case. It's kind of obvious tweak is not my drug of choice, people my age that do tweak look like they're 3/4 dead already.
Even as a kid: I've walked out of parties when people started getting ready to take pictures of felonious activities.
The asshats mistake in this case was allowing themselves to be used as props. Never allow yourself to be a pawn in somebody else's conspiracy. Keep your mouth shut, never record details, watch your use of tech. They did everything exactly wrong, to say nothing of being misinformed idiots in the first place.
