So-Called Drug War

The photo above is an image of your (if you're American) drug war. Tennessee Guerilla Women has the whole tale and links.

If that wasn't idiotic and criminal enough, John Tierny reports on the trial of Dr. William Hurwitz who was convicted this weekend of prescribing pain killers to patients that actually needed them. The patients were all sufferers of chronic pain. The law that Hurwitz was convicted under is vague and vacuous.

Finally, Federal officials have released a time line of the killing of a 92 year old woman in Atlanta during what was originally described as a botched drug raid. Actually, the evidence for the warrant was fabricated. After shooting the woman, the officers handcuffed her as she lay bleeding on the floor in order to plant evidence around her home.
