Drug War Victim

Pete at Drug WarRant brings the sad news of a woman shot dead by police during a completely unnecessary drug raid. All great Neptune's oceans will not wash this blood clean from the hands. Our hands, the hands of our indefensible, criminogenic drug laws. We could step back, but we go on, like Macbeth, so steeped in blood that "Returning were as tedious as go o'er."

This latest tragedy took place in my native neighborhood, less than half a mile from where I grew up. I have been by the raided house many times.
