Starting today on this web site, www.dea.gov, the public can inform federal drug agents about illegal drug trafficking activity in their communities by submitting a tip on-line.
Yeah, that’s right. The DEA, a federal agency, wants to find more ways to short-circuit local law enforcement and have citizens communicate directly with them. This is, of course, important to them, so they’re able to interfere with those pesky states and municipalities who don’t toe the federal drug war line.
If you want to submit a tip, you can do so here. I assume, but don’t know, that they may have some way of tracking the ip address of those who submit tips. And, of course, I would never do anything so irresponsible as to encourage people to submit fake tips about drug warriors from anonymous public computers. So don’t do that.
