Drug WarRant has been a big fan of LEAP member David Bratzer. Well, he is taking a leave from his work as a police officer in Victoria, BC in order to run for School Board Trustee in Victoria.
His campaign theme is â€œSchools Not Prisons.â€ It recognizes education as a major factor in determining whether a young person ends up in jail.
The interesting thing is that he is not hiding his involvement with LEAP and his views about the failed war on drugs, but rather making that part of his positive candidacy. Very refreshing.
I’ll keep you updated on his campaign.
