The Indiana Supreme Court recently ruled that citizens cannot resist police invading their homes without warrants. That’s a great ruling that will make deadly home invasions a lot easier for police impersonators.
In Pima County, Arizona a SWAT team just put some 60 rounds through an Iraq War veteran that served two tours of duty there protecting America. Frankly I don’t give a rat’s ass what the cop’s claim was that justified that kind of a response. The result was frightening and just what people in a Police State should expect.
We have allowed the menace of drugs to be replaced with a much larger menace of bucket helmeted, armed thugs acting under color of law to wage war on Americans. The Drug War has become far more dangerous than any and all outlawed drugs.
The majority of crime in America is related to the Drug War. People are killed in police raids including innocent bystanders together with children and senior citizens. Then there are the people victimized because the addicted must pay the hugely inflated price of drugs because they are illegal.
Cops, snitches, suspected snitches, robbery victims and innocent bystanders die every day for the Drug War.
Next are the turf wars between drug traffickers and of course massive official corruption among bad cops, prosecutors and judges. Our crooked politicians love the kickbacks paid by government contractors that equip the drug warriors.
Last on the list is the beating that our Bill of Rights has taken during the four decades that the Drug War has been fought. The Drug War is a massive and expensive failure. We can put the Drug Lords and drug Czars all out of business in a single day through legalization.
Too many Americans insist on ruining their lives with drugs and will continue to do so regardless of the amount of drug laws on the books or the penalties. Enough is enough. Imagine the freed up cash that can be used for voluntary drug treatment and research to find a real cure.
