Here is What Marijuana Laws Mean for AmericansTim King Salem-News.com
Cops shoot dogs and traumatize children over a few grams of marijuana in Missouri.
(COLUMBIA, Mo.) - Are you angry today? Well get ready, because here is another video showing what police are all about today, along with the country's outdated marijuana laws.
The video shows Columbia, Missouri police raiding a family's home, to serve a warrant. They are regular stormtroopers, working as a team with no chance of not succeeding.
According to the YouTube entry, "The cops bust in this guys house in the middle of the night and shoot his two dogs (one a pit bull that was caged in the kitchen and the other a Corgi) with children in the home."
You would assume that this guy is pretty bad, the police must have a good reason for kicking in his door and shooting his dogs with high powered weapons while his kids are home.
Ever heard of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD? It is the gift of violence that keeps on giving, and I guarantee that these children are forever traumatized by these thugs in blue with all of their determination and willingness to enforce stupid, needless, outdated laws that only benefit the insurance and big pharmaceutical industries?
I have a feeling those cops probably sleep well at night; they obviously enjoy what they do and they have the power to absolutely trump anyone who gets in their way. The biggest armed gang in this city, like most, have badges strapped on their chests that the very taxpayers they abuse, pay for. This video is something you may want to use caution when viewing:
We know other horror stories from this state, but then sadly you don't ever have to look that far to find cops freaking out about small amounts of this natural plant in a person's possession.
This supposed 'drug dealer' had a small pipe with some resin in it, a grinder, and "a small amount of marijuana".
The man reportedly had a few grams of marijuana.
YouTube member pscyhostyle, says, "We here in Columbia want everyone to know what kind of police department we have here, check out our 'finest' in action."
Those cops are a nightmare, and this is actually allowed to take place. There is not a thought for the children, the innocent dogs that the cops shot down as soon as they entered the residence. For perspective, 14 states have laws allowing legal medical marijuana. The amount that this man had is far, far below the amount allowed by patients to possess.
So this is how they violate human rights and utilize tax revenue in Columbia, Missouri.
In the video, note how the officer instructs the man simultaenously, to 'Not move" and to move his arms behind his back. Before the man can move, the brave officer takes a moment to kick the man. This nation is turned upside down on its head. I know those cops got off on treating that family that way, you can tell, it is crystal clear. There is no innocence, these are people seeking to be in these roles, there may be danger in the world for police, but in this case they are far more dangerous than any criminal stepping foot on their city streets.
