Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“Sir, I agree to this Constitution, with all its Faults, if they are such; because I think a General Government necessary for us, and there is no Form of Government but what may be a Blessing to the People if well administered; and I believe farther that this is likely to be well administered for a Course of Years, and can only end in Despotism as other Forms have done before it, when the People shall become so corrupted as to need Despotic Government, being incapable of any other.”     Benjamin Franklin,    Final Speech at the Constitutional Convention

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?
