Yahoo – In an early bid for Father of the Year, a Miami police detective allowed his 10-year-old daughter to use three drug-sniffing dogs and an ounce of cocaine for a science fair project, according to the Miami Herald.
Douglas Bartelt, a detective with the Miami-Dade Police Narcotics Bureau, provided his daughter, Emma, with three detector canines and 28 grams of cocaine (street value: approximately $1,300) for her entry into Coral Gables Preparatory Academy’s annual science fair.
Not surprisingly, she won. The first-place honor gave Emma an automatic entry into the Miami -Dade Elementary Schools Science Fair, where her drug-sniffing project earned an honorable mention.
“The purpose for this scientific investigation was to find which dog would find the cocaine fastest using it’s [sic] sense of smell,” the fourth-grader wrote in the abstract for her project, titled “Drug Sniffing Dogs.”
Well this is bullshit. Apparently we’re just going to throw all the rules of science fairs out the window now? I get the experiment but I didn’t know bringing coke to school was fair game now. Also using all of your dad’s resources for the project. Obviously parents do kids projects. If I said my mom never stepped in to “help” with my project I’d be lying. However, I wasn’t bringing in drugs and police dogs. That’s like a major leaguer stepping up to the plate with a metal bat and no one cries foul. Absolutely unacceptable.
I once brought fart spray into school in 4th grade. You would have thought it was a stick of dynamite. Was it obnoxious and smell terrible? You bet. Was it harmless? Yes. I was in fourth grade. But this chick rolls into school with an ounce of coke and no one bats an eye. Boys times have changed. And you thought sugar got kids all riled up…
