    Video of SWAT Raid on Missouri Family

    Radley Balko | May 5, 2010

    In February, I wrote the following about a drug raid in Missouri:

    SWAT team breaks into home, fires seven rounds at family's pit bull and corgi (?!) as a seven-year-old looks on.

    They found a "small amount" of marijuana, enough for a misdemeanor charge. The parents were then charged with child endangerment.

    So smoking pot = "child endangerment." Storming a home with guns, then firing bullets into the family pets as a child looks on = necessary police procedures to ensure everyone's safety.

    Just so we're clear.


    Now there's video, which you can watch below. It's horrifying, but I'd urge you to watch it, and to send it to the drug warriors in your life. This is the blunt-end result of all the war imagery and militaristic rhetoric politicians have been spewing for the last 30 years—cops dressed like soldiers, barreling through the front door middle of the night, slaughtering the family pets, filling the house with bullets in the presence of children, then having the audacity to charge the parents with endangering their own kid.

    There are 100-150 of these raids every day in America, the vast, vast majority like this one, to serve a warrant for a consensual crime.

    But they did prevent Jonathan Whitworth from smoking the pot they found in his possession. So I guess this mission was a success.

    I've exchanged emails with the mother of the family, who was in the home at the time of the raid. I'm waiting on her permission to publish her account of what happened.

    Those cops were morons. The one kept looking into the camera, like a complete dipshit.

    Fuck that. Violating a law that shouldn't exist in the first place doesn't give pigs the right to terrorize children and tear families apart.

    Police officers are only pigs to criminals. Are you a criminal? I consider the Police as public servants who are here for our protection. It must be people who call them pigs that they are protecting us from.

    :cuckoo:

    This thread is about the endless pain and suffering the war on drugs causes on a daily basis.

    Not only does the war on drugs NOT WORK.

    Not only does the war on drugs waste endless amounts of tax dollars.

    Not only does the war on drugs facilitate an ever increasing police state.

    Not only does the war on drugs violate every logical ideology on the basis of personal freedom, the ability to choose to do what you wish as long as it harms no one outside of yourself.

    Ever heard of prohibition?

    It's EXACTLY THE SAME THING.

    Crimes without victims are no crimes at all.

    Am I a criminal? I violate the law by using a harmless illegal substance, but there's no official record of me doing so.

    Police are people who apprehend serial killers and rapists; pigs are people who kick down the doors of peaceful citizens, pump rounds into the family dog, and scream at women and young children like the worthless, power-tripping cowards they are.
