H/T Mark Smither
I have never tried an illegal drug or even a cigarette. Never. But the more I read and think and see about our nation's "war on drugs", and particularly on marijuana, the more disgusted I am with the drug warriors who think they're somehow noble, somehow protecting America.
With the following video of a raid on a Missouri house during which, as reported by Reason magazine, a "small amount" of marijuana was found, I have two words to say to those who oppose marijuana legalization: YOU LOSE.
It would be funny if it weren't so dangerous and sickening that after the police fired multiple rounds in the house while a man, his wife, and their seven-year old son were in the next room, that the finding of a small pot-smoking pipe and a tiny amount of marijuana has caused the parents to be charged with child endangerment. The charges against the parents should be dropped and those same charges should be filed against every police officer in that unit as well as the unit's commander.
A friend who, at least for now, will remain nameless offered this comment when seeing the video:
I just watched the video of the raid in MO that that guy sent you, it is seriously disturbing. I don't even know what to think about it other than to say that it is frightening and more than a little eye opening about just how much force 'jack-booted thugs' are willing to use given any excuse.
I really am not comfortable living in this country these days, one change in the laws or even an act of civil disobedience could bring this kind of shit down on any of us very quickly. We have to sit by while our country is basically being invaded and be lectured by Obama and his accomplices about the 'misguided' nature of using our laws to protect our rights and sovereignty and watch as he systematically dismantles the constitution, free markets and national defense.
Something's gotta give and as I've said before I am very glad to no longer be living in or near a large city but rather in a place with a lot of independent and self sufficient people. If the shit does hit the fan, and it seems increasingly likely , I'm not sure I want to be anywhere in America though, That is a very unsettling feeling that I never anticipated having.
I couldn't have said it better myself.
