John Stossel had a very good show tonight on Fox Business Channel. Drug War Disaster
He had a “debate” with Sean Hannity (he couldn’t get anyone from DEA or ONDCP to appear. Talked with guests Jeffrey Miron (libertarian economist) and Mary Anastasia O’Grady of the Wall Street Journal about the economics of prohibition and the situation in Mexico.
He had on Mayor Cheye Calvo (whose dogs were drug war victims) and Radley Balko to talk about SWAT proliferation. And Paul Chabot â€” a cop in favor of the drug war, and Neil Franklin â€” LEAP member opposed to the drug war faced off. Chabot talked the usual nonsense about not wanting to “wave the white flag.” And then he took off with more nonsense during the audience Q and A and I had to turn off the TV.
I watched most of it and it was well worth watching.
If you missed the show tonight, I believe it repeats on Saturday at 7 and 11 pm (Eastern) and on Sunday at 10 pm (Eastern).
