The drug war creates most of the evils it seeks to combat

A very powerful and fascinating read in Spiegel Online: Failing Drug War: When Cops Become Criminals

When you follow the story of Martinez and his journey from fresh DEA agent to prison convict, what’s really fascinating is his own perception of right and wrong…

In prison, Martinez developed his own opinion of his actions. Today, he says that he was innocent. What he did wasn’t right, but it also wasn’t wrong, he says. He was simply applying the methods he had learned.

It really points out how little difference there is between the hard liners on both sides of the drug war. The drug war corrupts them both, making them believe that what they’re doing, while maybe not right, isn’t really wrong.

And we keep pouring fresh meat into that grinder.
