Uncle Sam wants your DNA: The FBI’s diabolical plan to create a nation of suspects

Hell's Angels Say Canada’s Plans To Legalize Marijuana Will Deal Massive Blow To Their Organized Crime Operations

by Emily Gray Brosious.  Canada’s newly elected Liberal government has promised to legalize marijuana “right away,” and that’s not sitting well with thousands of Hells Angels members who say the move would cost the organized crime outfit hundreds of thousands of jobs, as reported by World News Daily. Thousands of members of the organized   ... MORE

John Stossel: Law And Border

How many wars can we fight? Our presidential candidates demand "stronger action" against both illegal immigration and illegal drugs. But those goals conflict. The War on Drugs makes border enforcement much harder! America's 44-year-long Drug War hasn't made a dent in American drug use or the supply of illegal drugs. If it had some positive   ... MORE

More Face Life Sentences For Crimes They Didn’t Commit

by Rob Hustle. The fallacy of mass incarceration. We recently reported on the case of Brandon Duncan, a California-based rapper facing a life sentence for writing songs about gang violence. Not to be outdone, in Illinois, Lake County State’s Attorney Mike Nerheim, Lake County Sheriff Mark C. Curran and other officials recently announced that:     ... MORE

When Political Correctness Trumps Human Lives

Thomas Sowell on a very dangerous game.         New York City police authorities are investigating a series of unprovoked physical attacks in public places on people who are Jewish, in the form of what is called "the knockout game." The way the game is played, one of a number of young blacks decides to show that he can knock down some        ... MORE

Top UK Cop: Legalize Drugs To Break Up Criminal Gangs

Proposes stopping their revenue source.           Durham Chief Constable Mike Barton claimed the war on drugs had failed and decriminalisation was the best way to wrestle power away dealers who get rich by feeding people's addiction.

Is Uruguay's Marijuana Legalization Vote A Tipping Point?

Country chooses to stop drug-related violence.    Within weeks, Uruguay is expected to become the first nation to legalize the production, distribution and use of marijuana for its citizens.

Jim Cardoza: Handing Gangs The Gun Concession

Time for us to check our premises.   The tragedy of the American drug war is not just that it has been a failure. It has been an act of national self-destruction. It is one thing that it failed to diminish the availability of street drugs. It is quite another that it has provided vicious gangs with a lucrative black market funding mechanism while locking up scores ... MORE

Kinsley Guy: Time To Re-Think Our War On Drugs

Rampant crime caused by drug war, not drugs.      Now that Colorado and Washington have legalized recreational use of marijuana, it's time for Floridians to start talking seriously about doing the same. Legalization won't come overnight. A recent Quinnipiac University poll found only 42 percent of Florida voters think recreational    ... MORE

Jacob G Hornberger: Those Government Gun-Free Zones

It’s no big surprise.  A gun massacre brings out the gun-control crowd, which loudly demands that gun control be imposed on the American people, as if that would have prevented the massacre in Connecticut. It’s really a shame to have to trot out the same arguments exposing the fallacies of statist thinking, but, alas, it must be done.       ...

The Silent But Deadly War On Drugs

by Gretchen Burns Bergman. The War on Drugs, which began the year that my first son was born, has wreaked havoc on our families for over 40 years, because it isn't really a war against drugs. It is a war against our own people, and it has stealthily eaten away at the fabric of our lives for decades. These punitive and discriminatory drug war strategies      ... MORE

John Stossel: Because Prohibition Worked So Well ...

Why to we continue the war on drugs? Forty years ago, the United States locked up fewer than 200 of every 100,000 Americans. Then President Nixon declared war on drugs. Now we lock up more of our people than any other country — more even than the authoritarian regimes in Russia and China. A war on drugs — on people, that is — is unworthy of a    ... MORE 

Andrew Bernstein: Intensify The War On Drugs

But in a radically new form.    The War on Drugs must forcefully continue. Toxic drugs destroy lives. No rational person wants to kill himself on drugs—or witness innocent others kill themselves in similar manner. The first step of a rational, morally proper, and effective war on drugs is to fully legalize all drugs for consenting adults. The government’s    ...

LA Times: Another Former Cop Calls To Legalize Drugs

Favors legalization to subsidizing underworld. Stephen Downing speaks fondly of his 20 years with the Los Angeles Police Department, saying he misses the camaraderie and the integrity of the people he worked with in a career that took him from street cop to deputy chief. Along the way, as commander of the Bureau of Investigations, he oversaw the   ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: For Whom The Bell Tolls

The sour fruits of political correctness. The orgies of violent attacks on strangers in the streets — in both England and the United States — are not necessarily just passing episodes. They should be wake-up calls, warning of the continuing degeneration of Western society. As British doctor and author Theodore Dalrymple said, long before these riots broke out, “The good ... MORE
