Over the decades, the U.S. Supreme Court has heard many cases stemming from police violence against Americans justified by the so-called “War on Drugs.” Never once have the justices seized the opportunity to rule — as they are obliged to rule by their oaths of office — “Oh, and by the way, your so-called ‘War on Drugs’ is totally unconstitutional under the Ninth Amendment. So cut it out.”

“bullet” This isn’t exactly an article… There was a rather ignorant opinion piece in the Red and Black (University of Georgia paper) a few days ago saying that the police were right in the Kathryn Johnston case. Today there are two outstanding letters in response: one by Journalism student Dave Marck, Jr. and one by LEAP speaker Allison Myrden. Read them here.
