Outrage of the day

The police made a sleazy deal with an informant; instructed or passively permitted that informant to illegally break into Frederick’s home to collect evidence; conducted a violent, forced-entry raid on Frederick as he slept ; got one one of their own men killed; and are now trying to put a man with no prior record, a steady job, and by no means a threat to the community, in prison for the rest of his life over marijuana he was allegedly growing for his own personal use.

Even assuming the worst about Frederick—that he was growing a small amount of pot in his garage—this case is as apt an illustration of the drug war’s twisted priorities as you’ll find. What an utter waste of life, time, and resources.

The whole fiasco sickens me.

And some people cannot fathom why I dislike cops so much.
