“The essential quality of a free economy is that it cannot be planned. It leaves the solution of problems to the inspiration of the individuals in the untrammeled population. When something approaching a free economy has existed, it has always worked better than the schemes of any planners.”     Thomas H. Barber

Crossed the line yet?

Maybe this will be enough for those who still support the war on drugs to realize that something needs to change. Follow the links, because there’s a lot of good info, but the short version is that the U.S. Government stood idly by and let an innocent man get brutally murdered because a man involved with the murders was an informant working for ICE. Lest anyone think the murder was a one-time aberration, the informant has been linked to 12 other murders. In fact, since he was wearing a wire, his handlers were able to hear the actual murders being committed. Then the government covered everything up and canned a senior DEA agent who had the gall to speak out against the government being complicit in murder. This senior DEA agent described the informant as a “homicidal maniac.”

I’ll let the agent have the last word: “This situation is so bizarre that even as I’m writing to you it is difficult for me to believe it. I have never before come across such callous behavior by fellow law enforcement officers.”

Just more collateral damage in the war.

  1. But at least they’re stopping drug use in this country…

    Wait, they’re not actually stopping drug use? Oh well, it’s the intentions that count, right?
