Except that in this case the police was very happy to sell him crack at a high price in the first place and was scared that he couldn't pay the bills racked up so far if he stayed in that pond. Also, the aforementioned crack junkie was already forced to sell all of his belongings to the police officer during the first psychotic episode. Lastly, the police officer wanted his crack racket to continue so he had to make sure he was the one to rescue him instead of the Salvation Army at the other side of the pond. He was even kind enough to help him get back on his feet after he got into the alligator pond, to make sure he would continue to pay the bills.
