You state in a Nov. 28 editorial that "New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson has received national criticism for his support of drug legalization." What about mentioning the praise he has received?You wrote: "The elements of responsibility and accountability must be realized regarding illegal drug use, which is a primary reason the criminal nature of such illegal activities must be recognized."
Criminal "nature"! Are you serious? The prohibition of plants and plant extracts is anti-nature. Prohibitionists are spoiled children ranting at those who disobey them. Americans have always ignored prohibitionists.But the prohibitionists have constantly enabled real criminals to thrive. They thrive on the corruption, the loss of liberty and the tremendous profits to be gained by exploiting prohibition laws. Prohibitionists thrive on the overdose deaths (try purchasing your heart medicine from someone in an alley), which enable them to build an ever-cumbersome bureaucracy to enforce their ill-conceived laws.You say enjoying a plant or plant extract is "criminal nature." We evolved enjoying every and any plant nature gave us. Those who pretend authority to forbid us this pursuit of happiness and health are the criminals.Thanks to prohibitionists, America now has the greatest population in prison in the history of mankind. Their evil knows no end.Richard Marchese Fairfield, N.J. Source: Amarillo Globe-News (TX)Author: Richard MarchesePublished: December 7, 2000Copyright: 2000 Amarillo Globe-NewsAddress: P.O.

I thought I was the only one in the world who watched COPS purely for the irony of watching police commit crimes and civil rights violations.We should form a club or something.

Defender...I saw that too,and found it most disgusting. As for explaining it,I think it is beyond explanation,other than to that for many cops,this is business as usual. I believe the cop said he was gonna question the guy because he didnt have a lite on his bike.The cop was obviously concerned that since this guy was black,and had no lite,,,no one would be able to see him,and he might get run over by an SUV or Mercedes. I think the show "COPS",is one of the most devious tools used to subliminally poisin the masses with the antis' propaganda.Americas Most Wanted does the same thing.Both shows portray all cops as the valiant defenders of the public against the threat of the drug usin',law breakin' scumbags.I gotta mention another series of FOX shows called something like;"Americas scariest police videos",or "Wildest car chases". These shows are usually hosted by the world class A#%hole named John Bunnell.He got his start on the COPS show,and now he provides narration for these other shows,with stuff like,,, "This drugged out lawbreaker,will have a long time to think about running from the police,,right we he belongs,,behind bars" I would be really interested to know how many huge checks the czar,and his cronies have cut to the FOX network for this shit.....dddd

Please give me some feedback on the following...
I was watching "cops" the other day, for I usually do so just to see what new type of civil abuse i will see in it. There was this black man driving his bike, but he had no lights. A police officer stopped him, he was not a "criminal suspect" or anything of the sort, he was just there, riding his freaking bike, minding his own business. However, the cop saw a bulge in the guys pocket, and said he was going to procede to search him. The black man grabbed his pipe and chucked it into the woods. The police officer then was about to proceed to handcuff him (for what??) and the black man decided to make a run for it. After a few hundred meters, the man was tackled down, while the cop talked trash, saying 'what were you doing huh? trying to get away? you're going to jail buddy!' in a very annoying and superior tone. Now hear are my questions: first of all, how do they even dare show this attrocity on t.v.? second of all, does the black man have a right to not be seen by the entire prime time american audience? third, if the police officer asked 'what were you doing?', does this not mean that he was not sure what the black man was doing? please, someone might be able to explain this to me, for i do not understand it and it has been puzzling me for a few days. I would appreciate a reply, thank you very much,
