Justice, Texas Style

Interesting interview at Alternet with reporter Nate Blakeslee, who has a new book: “Tulia: Race, Cocaine, and Corruption in a Small Texas Town.”

What does the story of Tulia reveal about the larger landscape of the national war on drugs?

I think it shows the decline in standards of law enforcement that has come along with the Byrne Grant task force program. And it’s not just in Texas; these grants are funding similar drug task forces in almost all rural and suburban areas in the United States.
