Americans have been indoctrinated with a prison culture, one in which the sheep are trained to dial 911 and bleat on their fellow humans for doing things which God gave them the Right to do.
The leg breakers and bag men arrives, kill them or haul their asses off to jail.
That make you feel all warm and tingly?
Has generations of that made you feel safe walking down the sidewalk or even in your own home?
The Ole Dog!
Baltimore, MD — After their department gained national shame over a video showing an officer planting drugs to frame an innocent man while his fellow cops watched, the Baltimore Police Department showed the world the dark reality that is framing people to make arrests for victimless crimes in the war on drugs. Only days after the first video was released, the Baltimore Public Defender’s office released a second video that depicted “multiple officers working together to manufacture evidence.”
It was then announced that nearly three dozen people will have their charges dropped after the video of Officer Richard Pinheiro showed him planting drugs while Officers Hovhannes Simonyan and Jamal Brunson stood by and did nothing.
For decades the war on drugs ruined the lives of countless citizens in the city of Baltimore and helped to create one of the most corrupt police departments in the world because of it. But times are changing and so is the war on drugs.
State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby recently announced the war on drugs is over in Baltimore and she is making it permanent policy to dismiss all criminal charges for the possession of drugs including heroin.
Mosby didn’t stop at drug possession either, she is also dismissing all cases for other victimless crimes like attempted drug distribution, prostitution, open containers and minor traffic offenses.
Mosby began her crusade last year when her office simply refused to keep prosecuting crimes which had no victim. Much to the dismay of the pro-police state crowd, refusing to prosecute people for victimless crimes did not lead to an uptick in criminal activity. In fact, since her policy was implemented a year ago and 1,400 victimless crimes were not prosecuted, crime went down, a lot.
Compared to this same time last year, violent crime in the city has dropped 20% while property crime fell a massive 35% compared to the same period.
“Clearly, the data suggests that there is no public safety value in prosecuting these low-level offenses,” Mosby said.
