The methods the Police Dept used are questionable. Speaking of questions- I'm questioning the media's actions in publishing one-sided articles that practically condemn a man before he's even been to trial.. this only makes matters WORSE. What ever happened to objective journalism? The people have equal rights to both sides of the story. This includes Mr Watson's side. The reason it's good practice to use objective journalism: You don't have to clean up behind yourself when you spread a bunch of crap around. :)

The package was marked "return to sender." This article doesn't do anything to help Tom in the court of public opinion. Tom is a health nut who eats organic foods and doesnt even put sugar in his body. Cant see him putting these toxins in it. Tom is a well-educated business owner. Can't see him jeopardizing his business or his reputation by sending himself illegal drugs.. That would be stupid, and Tom isnt stupid. Here are a few things that are good to know about Tom: Recognized for 8 straight years of providing IT services to Loudoun Free Clinic on a volunteer basis.
