  4. The police didn’t steal enough the last time they raided HH’s house so I guess this is another excuse for them to put their filthy hands on HH’s property. They get paid peanuts so day-light robbery in the name of seizing goods is the order of the day. The police stooping so low as to steal food from somebody’s fridge! No wonder they walk around looking like they don’t three square meals a day.
