With our economy tanking in a hurry we still have the recession and depression-proof drug trade. Huge profits and insatiable drug appetites will bring even more entrepreneurs than ever.
American police will never be able to control the kind of violence as it’s been creeping inside our own fee society.
For the past two years I’ve been getting the most vile and ghoulish videos and pictures from the cops that read my blog. The images are that of unimaginable crime scenes. They show tortured, mutilated and dismembered corpses of cops, soldiers, rival drug runners, snitches, and various public officials. One video shows 24 decapitated bodies with heads everywhere. Needless to say I won’t be sharing those images here.
Ciudad Juárez, also known as just Juárez is a city of 1.5 million people. It stands on the Rio Grande, across the U.S. border from El Paso, Texas. This formerly peacful city had some 1,600 drug related killings in 2007.
We began the Drug War to prevent our own children from being able to get or get hooked on drugs. Despite our grand efforts there is no child in America who can’t get all the drugs they want. The only roadblock is the amount of money they can pay. Of course drug addicts will do whatever it takes to obtain the money to supply their habits. And no small part of our crime rate is fueled by desperate Americans who have become an underclass of career criminals as a result.
The actual cost for the illegal drugs is that of sugar, coffee or cigarettes. The huge profits only exist because the drugs are illegal. Our government and laws have done more to contribute to the incredible wealth of the Southern hemisphere’s drug lords. Of course American criminals have been able to make a handsome living from this trade as well.
When are we going to wise up? We can put these criminals out of business in a single day through legalization of all the drugs we have outlawed. The risk to our children would not be greater and in fact drug violence kills far more people than the drugs themselves.
If we don’t get smart, we can watch this Third World drug related carnage on our own streets soon.
