    Some Charts






    Find it interesting that drug arrests go up and violent crimes go down. Go war on drugs.

    It doesn't specify which drugs....maybe more people are smoking pot. I never met a pothead who was violent unless they were mixing it with something else. Just give 'em some Cheetos and re-runs of Scoobie-Doo and they are as harmless as a baby!

    I'd like more words to go with those pretty pictures. Because "violent crime" in that last graph is way above any "victimization". I would also like to look at actual numbers, and not lines.

    I also question whoever made up those graphs definition of "violent crime".

    Be that as it may, yes, when you violate people's 4th amendment rights, you are obviously going to prevent crime. I know that's not the case, but the fact is when you use looking for drugs as a reason to search someone and you find evidence of another crime (such as an armed robbery) then of course the crime rate is going to go down.

    Most people argue that the War on Drugs is not winnable. I disagree. It most certainly is winnable. We can eliminate every illegal narcotic on the street and put away every user and dealer almost overnight. How? It starts by eliminating the Constitution, and it's first 10 amendments. When the people are ready to take that step, then we can end the War on Drugs.
    The virtue of spirit has no need for thanks or approval. Only the certain conviction that what has been done is right. -Jor El, as played by Marlon Brando
