Swat Team kills Iraq vet in botched War on Drug raid...

SWAT_051711-thumb-240xauto-3126It pisses people off when the War on Drugs is brought up.

They give you dirty looks; feeling that pointing out that the Warf on Drugs seems to have become nothing more than an excuse for local law enforcement to dress up in Commando gear and abuse the rights of citizens is no different than handing their kid a joint and a freshly chalked up line of fine Peruvian flake and telling them to go for it.

But videos like this make the case for me better than any statistic or logical argument ever could.

This is a video- taken by the Tucson SWAT team- showed the SWAT team storming the home of Jose Guerena Ortiz in May of 2011 because of his pigs

suspected involvement in drug trafficking. The evidence against him amounted to an anonymous tip, some unsavory friends, and one prior weapons charge (I’m sure his being Hispanic didn’t hurt either…). The county prosecutor’s office says the shooting was justified. The case has since led to no arrests (or further investigations apparently).

Cops were serving a “No Knock” warrant, which gives the right to storm the premises- for lack of a better term- in order to get their collar. This is usually reserved for the worst of the worst… men that the Fuzz needs to get off the streets as quickly as possible in order to keep the Straights safe.

According to the account of Vanessa Guerena (the victim’s wife who was hiding in the closet with their four year old pajama clad son at the time of the raid), her husband- a veteran of the Iraqi War- pulled the gun because he thought he needed to defend his home from masked men dressed in black (something I am sure is a real concern that close to the drug war ravaged borderlands he was not living too far from).

Tragically, the Men in Black this time happened to be the cops.

Check it out as these cops unload 77 rounds at this guy (22 of them finding their target) in this raid gone horribly wrong…


Fuck the Police, Fuck the Police, Fuck ‘em…

Shit like this is where the flaws in the War on Drugs show up crystal clear.

kicking-assOf all the ways to snare this guy… at his job in the copper mine… at the gym… as part of a routine traffic stop… A “No Knock” warrant for a non-violent offender…

This isn't about doing police work or protecting and serving the public if you ask me...

This is nothing more than a show of force, plain and simple, with the pig SWAT guys making sure that they are sending a message to their community that Big Brother doesn't fuck around when it comes to drugs.

Because no one likes it when you fuck with the money...

And in these hard fiscal times, the War on Drugs is seen by many Americans as fucking with the money (money, I might add, we don't have and are going to be borrowing from China)… Money that could be better spent on more useful things... Like Health Care or Social Security or something… as opposed to this needless campaign to stomp out something that seems to only get more and more popular as the years progress.

But what do I know…

I’m just another oh so dangerous pothead.
