The Drug War is a failure of epic proportions. Yet it continues unabated because of American's moronic attitude toward drugs and law enforcements addiction to drug enforcement funding.

At least the story is getting some exposure, so hopefully enough people will stand up to support this guy.

What about the hundreds, thousands, of other cases that we never hear about every year?

Woo hoo. The war on drugs just keeps coming up roses.

There is a good documentary on Showtime running now - American Drug War


I can only watch it in small doses, it's really agitating.
This place really went to hell. Follow the OF standard stout. Bye.

Angry is not even the proper adjective. Furious, enraged, dumbfounded. Those are better.

Why does stuff like this have to keep happening. One man is dead, another in jail, possibly for the rest of the life, or killed himself, 10's if not 100's of thousands of dollars are going to be spent...and for what? What is accomplished? What can we look at and say this is the reason it was worth sacrificing lives....this is the reason so many billions (trillions?) were spent over the years. This was the goal and we accomplished it. Where? What is it?

Beyond the questions of the efficacy of the "Drug War", how about the unconstitutional paramilitary armies that most police departments have made for themselves with cheap purchases of surplus US military gear. When is somebody going to face the fact that this is a "boy's toys" club for the weekends. Does it make anyone feel safer when the police are armed better than the army at times? Or does it make anyone worried like myself?

Police does not equal Army.

Also our prison system is becoming privitized. They have lobbyists to help keep drug laws intact to preserve their clients coming in for extended stays at their lock and key resorts.
