Drug War Foolishness Costs NYC

Email Print

Two NYC cops who claimed to have been tipped off by an undercover cop arrested three men for selling “crystalline rocks of solid material.” Turns out their rocks were not crystal meth but Jolly Ranchers candy. The city is now paying the men in a settlement. Lawsuits involving police misconduct have cost the city more than $100 million so far this year.

I can’t decide whether I should say end the drug war or end the police. Okay, how about both.
