Breaking down a door without a warrant, not announcing they were the police, gunning down an unarmed man...all for a bag of pot...Really ?
Why didn't the police detain him before he went into his house? Obviously they were watching him...
I have no problem with the death penalty for drug dealers who illegally sell Schedule III drugs...
You do realize how easy it would be for the police to murder you, plant drugs in your home, and claim you were a “suspected drug dealer”, do you not?
Nowhere does the article or video claim that the victim was a drug dealer, suspected or otherwise.
Nowhere is he accused of a violent crime.
You should think about what you are defending-—remember, the same tactics will be used against Freepers one day. Be careful what you cheer today.
Apologies, I misread your post. Mea culpa.
Please reexamine your position. Just this month we have learned that the IRS, FBI, Homeland Security, and OSHA has **ABSOLUTELY** and **VERIFIABLY** targeted specific political opponents of the current president. Coordination of so many agencies could only have come from the highest levels. IT HAPPENED! Do you honestly believe that these EVIL people aren't completely capable of planting drugs on anyone they want eliminated?
Trillions have been spent on a futile War on Drugs and the street price of drugs has not risen one bit. This means that all those trillions were a complete waste in terms of reducing access to drugs. Even little ole' me ( a 65 year old middle class white grandmom) could **easily ** figure out how to get illegal drugs in about a half hour.
It is time we gave up the War on Drugs and focused on treatment and treated drug abuse in the same manner that we do alcohol abuse.
