It’s not just people who are traumatized and brutalized in the senseless “war on drugs” in the US and abroad. This video has been rightfully making the rounds on the web of late as people have been shocked awake (once again) at what’s entailed in enforcing it.
What you’re seeing here is a no-knock raid executed and filmed by Columbia, Missouri police on a man they thought was a big-time dealer. Turns out, he only had a small, personal use quantity of pot in his possession. Meanwhile, the family pets, a little corgi and a caged pit bull took bullets, the latter dying from its wounds, while his seven-year-old and wife looked on.
The chief of police has vowed to change SWAT team and drug warrant procedures in the face of the ensuing outrage.
