The drug czar has gone to great rhetorical lengths to convince the American people that our drug policy isnâ€™t a war any longer, but you don’t have to look very hard to see the violence that still erupts daily, not only in Mexico, but right here in our own communities. If you can handle it, I’d like you to take a look at just one example of the incredible violence police use when enforcing our drug laws.
The guy was a small-time drug addict who lived in a house belonging to his parents. He had $4 on him, and the police found a small amount of marijuana in the house and a vial that had contained meth in his pocket. And he was holding a golf club.
This is how fast it happens.
In the video:
:23 Police start to yell “Police. Search Warrant.” and enter home
:27 Police moving through home yell something. Perhaps “freeze.”
:28 Todd is shot three times
:29 Todd is on the ground
:31 Officer yells “Get on the ground.”
Do you all feel safer now?
