The War On Drugs Claims Another Victim

0 Shares

Plant drugs on a school kid and turn a drug-sniffing dog loose. What could go wrong?

Plenty.

In Brazil, Ind., during a drug awareness event at the local courthouse, police wanted to demonstrate a K-9 unit’s effectiveness at finding even traces of “illegal substances.” Unfortunately, despite the fact that the drill was performed “under exclusive control and supervision of members of the court and law enforcement,” things didn’t go as planned.

Police had a 5th grader hold a small amount of marijuana and then turned their K-9 unit loose to find the hidden drugs. The K-9 unit bit the 11-year-old on the leg, causing puncture wounds that had to be treated at the local hospital.

“It was an unfortunate accident,” said Brazil Police Chief Clint McQueen to the Brazil Times. “Wish it hadn’t happened like that but it did. We are trying to evaluate (the incident) to make sure nothing like this happens again.”

Of course, police blamed the kid. What did he do wrong, besides submit to authoritarian figures as he’s being trained to do in the public indoctrination center that passes for a school? He moved his legs as the dog approached.

It seems a lot of “unfortunate accident[s]” occur when police and their war on drugs are around. Like when SWAT teams kick in doors in the middle of the night and fire a fusillade of bullets at residents jolted from their slumber. Or when they flashbang the wrong house and hold innocent children at gunpoint. Or when they shoot peoples’ fenced dogs. Or any of the myriad other unfortunate encounters people have endured at the hands of “peace officers.” And always, when these events end badly, it’s never the LEOs (legally entitled to oppress) who are held at fault.

The K-9 unit has been temporarily taken out of service, McQueen said. But not quarantined or executed, as would have happened had it been owned by a citizen.

Remember there are double standards when it comes to interactions with uniformed LEOs. Under the imprimatur of the state, they can plant drugs on school kids, let their dogs bite innocents, shoot unfortunates and/or beat them senseless or taser them to death without reprisal.

But let a citizen push back at the totalitarian behavior and, well…

    It’s like the producers of ‘reality television.’

      Hey great Idea for a reality show! It is just a matter of conditioning the public!!

    more child abuse….in the name of education

    The bigger question here Bob is How do WE stop this onslaught of TOTALITARIAN POLICE behavior in the ‘name’ of PROTECTION??? Far too many CITIZENS have realized that the WAR on Drugs is a lost CAUSE but WE still allow this Fascist behavior to continue without CORRECTIVE measures….. Now that we have ‘armed’ many Police precincts with ‘Military grade’ weaponry (which WAS supposed to be illegal!!) it is looking more and more like the CITIZENS have an UPHILL BATTLE to get back to where we should have been all along….

      We haven’t seen anything yet. It will be we the people against those who have the authority to kill the people. It is happening in the armed forces. Obama will unleash his favorite weapon the unmaned drone on us with out even blinking an eye. There is a civil war coming. Or there will be a blood bath in the name of freedom. It is a matter if you will submit to this type of control or fight. I believe most, if not all will submit and pay the consequences.

        I hope you are wrong about your predictions billybob, but I doubt what is coming will be a full frontal assault on the American People by the Federal Government. The tools they need are now in place and the biggest one in their tool box is indefinite detention.

        DHS is the new standing army that our forefathers warned us about, and they are infiltrating the ranks of your local police departments as we speak. Have you noticed the transition to black and white patrol cars lately? That was funded by the Federal Government by certain grants that covered 100% of the costs to force the transition in order to standardize for the implementation of a Federal Police force, just as the switch from narrow band to wide band (analog to digital).

        It is all about standardization to smooth this transition. The model that is most likely to be implemented is what is occurring in Mexico right now, where ironically the Mexican Government admitted that up to 35% of all abductions (and subsequent executions) are being perpetrated by their own military and police forces. I assume the actual number is much higher. Please remember that genocide is occurring not many miles to the south of us and yet the US Government does nothing but send greater aide to this corrupt government. Official numbers that I have heard floating around are in the 100,000 range, but again that is a very low estimate.

        So far as this child being bitten by a drug search dog; nothing surprises me these days. The actions by local police are all about indoctrination. This is nothing more than operant conditioning. They are merely foot soldiers in this war against the cause of liberty. There is no shortage of people who will swear on a stack of bibles that they will protect and defend the principles that this country was founded upon, but do not ask them to do it for free. Please remember that these cops have surrendered every form of privacy that one possibly can in order to get this high paying gig. They know submission well and they understand the cost that was necessary to achieve the power that they desired, and many have little if any concern for those who are not willing and ready to do the same.

        It is sad to say billybob, but I agree with you that most Americans would submit to whatever the Federal Government requested at this point in our nations history. Simply name the freedom to be surrendered and watch the people pile onto the bandwagon so long as you keep adding zeros in front of the decimal point. Mr. Snowden was the exception to the rule. I wish there were many more like him.

    It’s the child’s fault? Any child with half a brain will
    react when approached by an unknown animal, regardless of the assurances of the
    owner/handler.

    As for the “…make sure nothing like this happens again” comment from the
    police chief. If you are going to use a patsy for your demonstrations; next
    time use one of your own people, moron.

  • jdn

    Ignorance at its best . Who in their right mind would use an 11 year old child in a demonstration with a trained attack dog !!! We do not need morons of this caliber as police officers . What’s next …. Oh , I know lets demonstrate our shooting proficiency . Little girl hold this quarter above your head .
