Two New York police officers have developed a highly evolved sense of smell. That’s one explanation for their claims to have smelled the “pungent odor” of PCP on Terrence Darby. Trouble is, as an expert testified at trial, PCP has no odor. The trial judge wouldn’t admit as evidence the 39 bags of drugs found on Darby but an appellate panel overturned the ruling. The apparently “street wise” panel accepted prosecutors’ argument that “street level” PCP has an odor and pure PCP doesn’t. We think this ruling has an odor all its own.
