Paris/Bruno D.A.

Allegedly Scored Coke

4X a Week

3/21/2011 1:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The deputy D.A. who prosecuted Paris Hilton and Bruno Mars scored coke 3 to 4 times a week in the crack den of Las Vegas ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ, and we've learned he's been locked out of his office and is about to get fired.

David Schubert Drugs

David Schubert, who was busted Saturday night, had gone to a notorious area of Vegas Saturday night.  Schubert, who was driving a BMW, stopped and cops observed a male get inside his car.

The two began driving and cops were suspicious, after the passenger got out of the car, went into a an apartment complex and came back out.  When Schubert allegedly committed a traffic violation, cops made their move and stopped the vehicle.  The passenger got out and ran, and was subdued after a foot chase.

The passenger then snitched Schubert out, telling cops Schubert would come by 3 to 4 times a week and use him to purchase $40 worth of cocaine at a time.  The passenger says Schubert would call periodically to ask if anyone was selling narcotics.

Mind you ... this was allegedly going down at the same time Schubert was prosecuting Paris and Bruno.

Cops observed a "white, rocklike substance" in the car and it tested positive for cocaine.

David Roger, the Clark County District Attorney, tells TMZ, "We are very disappointed.  He [Schubert] has betrayed the trust that was placed in him.  He's been locked out of his office, placed on suspension and is in the process of being terminated."

Why didnt he just buy a weeks worth at a time? Over a years time, scoring drugs 52 times decreases the likelihood of getting caught than going 150+ times. Remember, it only takes one time to get caught up, so it's better to pick up quantity.

Putting aside the hypocrisy for a second, is anyone else disturbed by the cops lack of probable cause to effect the search? Do we really live in a country where a police officer is entitled to search your car because he saw something as innocuous as a passenger grabbing something out of an apartment building?

The police don't arrest any celebrities, D.A.'s, police officers, judges, Mayors, Governors, Congressmen, Senators or multimillionaires who buy or do illegal drugs in their own homes.

The rich people who run "the system" know how to protect themselves.

They get their "stuff" delivered to their own homes.

The poor and/or dumb people who buy drugs on the street are targeted by the police because that "looks bad" and would "set a bad example" and draw "the wrong element" to the community.

The people running "the system" want to maintain appearances so the they can pretend it's mostly poor people who are breaking the law.

David Schubert didn't understand that.

The D.A. should remind his deputy D.A.'s not to buy drugs on the street. The police chief should tell his police officers the same thing. Then, we can go back to pretending that a high percentage of our police officers and D.A.'s aren't drug addicts. And then we can pretend that the legal system is a fair way to dispense justice.

It's a fantasy, people.

The story mentions something about the driver of the car committing an alleged traffic infraction that gave the police the right to stop the car and search it and the driver.

Lesson here, people: If you're going to drive in your luxury German car to a slimy part of town to buy crack cocaine or any other illegal drug, drive carefully. Make full stops at stop signs, signal your turns and lane changes and drive below the speed limits posted, etc.

Remember, don't give the police a probable cause or reason to stop you. Have your illegal drugs delivered to your house like Charlie Sheen says he did, and you can party until you OD, and the police won't arrest you, 99 times out of 100.

That's the system the rich and powerful set up for the rest of us to follow.

And like sheep, we follow it.

Logical. So, why didn't he buy a year's worth at a time? That would decrease his likelihood of getting caught by 52 times. At his consumption rate, he'd only have to buy $10,000 worth once a year.

And he could have bought enough coke once for 30 years too. That would decrease the odds by a further 30 times.

Of course if he OD'ed before the year was up, that would mean he's be buried or cremated before he could use all the drugs so some of that money he spent would have been wasted.

He made a bad decision. He should have grown his own coca plants in South or Central American and processed the coke himself and used for his own consumption what he wanted, and sold the rest.

That would pay more than what a Deputy D.A. makes in Las Vegas, and his chances of getting arrested would have been less than driving a BMW in a slum 4 times a week to buy cocaine from a drug dealer on the street.

This guy was too stupid to be a good Deputy D.A. Hopefully, the next one will be smarter.

This guy must have been broke, firstly buying $40 worth of cocaine which is enough for 4 lines, and he drives a 2000 BMW. Guess he is spending his big bucks on hookers.

Apparently, not even the crackheads he was prosecuting didn't notice anything funny. That's a side effect of doing drugs. You, the addict, don't notice anything out of the ordinary around you except for the people around you, that not on drugs, notice your awkward behaviorness.

The only way to win the "War on Drugs" in the United States: Give everyone random tests every year (with 'A' and 'B' samples) for illegal drugs. For everyone who is found to be a 'user': fine them, jail them, and put them into a rehab program.

The ones who are found to be 'clean' will guard, feed, clothe, house and rehab the rest of us.

Either do something like that or decriminalize or legalize it.

Just busting some drug users, dealers, growers and transporters is never going to win that war. We know that. But, the authorities pretend otherwise because they don't want to win it. There's too much money involved on both sides of the drug business for them to want to stop it.

So they stop someone from selling and buying it here, so someone else sells and buys it there. And then they tell us how many billions of dollars of dope that they seized, as though that solved the problem. But the addicts are still here and they're still doing drugs. So, what good have the authorities done by seizing some drugs and jailing some people? Not enough.

What a stunning lack of intelligence this Deputy DA has. That and his addiction has eclipsed his common sense as well. It's amazing he didn't realize he'd get caught!

At this point, this man is a raging drug addict. He needs rehab ASAP.
