SWAT teams make non violent situations violent

Radley Balko has an outstanding piece in the Washington Times today.

This sums up so much about the War on Drugs

…free societies don’t send armed government agents dressed in black to raid the private homes of citizens for political crimes. Given that all parties who participate in a drug transaction do so voluntarily, the prohibition of drugs is at heart a political policy.

He’s right, eliminating SWAT teams might actually make us safer, it will certainly save some dogs.  It’s also time to talk about drug prohibition in a free society.
