Smoke weed, Fluffy dies!
Child endangerment, really?
Not going to get into the reasons for and against the legalization of marijuana here today – but take a look at this video of a police raid on a Missouri family back in February.
Reason.com said “SWAT team breaks into home, fires seven rounds at family’s pit bull and corgi (?!) as a seven-year-old looks on. They found a “small amount” of marijuana, enough for a misdemeanor charge. The parents were then charged with child endangerment. So smoking pot = “child endangerment.” Storming a home with guns, then firing bullets into the family pets as a child looks on = necessary police procedures to ensure everyone’s safety. Just so we’re clear.”
Several 411 readers have sent links for this story over the past few months, and figured it was time to post it. “America better wake up,” said one reader.
Is America’s “police state” reaching unreasonable levels?
