Sigh...

... and here's your drug war at work.
... [Atlanta] narcotics officers were required to serve nine warrants and make two arrest per month, or they'd risk losing their jobs. This led to routine lying on warrants and bullying and intimidation of informants. What we don't know is how many people were wrongly raided, arrested, and jailed because of all of this.
It's time to reconsider this nightmare. We got rid of Prohibition after 12 years or so - why is the drug war still going on after more than thirty?
