LETTER OF THE WEEK
LOST WAR ON DRUGS AND ITS CASUALTIES
When you lie down with dogs, often you will get up with fleas. Yet
another in my profession (Megan Mattingly) has been tainted by the
enforcement of drug prohibition. Add her to the many, many thousands
who have been corrupted or killed, or who have committed suicide
after being corrupted. And for what? We in law enforcement know that
every drug dealer arrested is replaced within days. The nine
suspects released (or even if they had gone to prison) are meaningless.
A trillion tax dollars spent and 40 years of serious effort have
resulted in a Maryland free of drugs? No. Quite the contrary. Drugs
are cheaper, stronger and readily available to our teens.
Please tell this reader again why you support this Bridge to Nowhere policy.
