Animal Cruelty in the War On Drugs

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.

    Wow!! I have friends who live in Columbia, Mo. It’s scary what the government does!!!

    This is SICK! I did not even hear the dogs bark before they shot them- one dog screaming in agony after the first shot was fired. I think the SWAT team member that went into the house firing immediately on the household pets should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and should be immediately and permanently dismissed from his job.

    Couldn’t agree with you all more. Thanks for leaving your thoughts and feelings.

    By the way, the internal “investigation” found no wrong-doing: http://www.columbiatribune.com.....stigation/

    Sad thing is, this kind of thing happens to people too. Clearly, it’s time (actually has been since it started) to stop the drug war.
