Police force

Radley Balko, as always, has a collection of SWAT team follies in towns so tiny Andy Griffith and Barney Fife could handle the law enforcement. An especially odious assortment is here including a SWAT response to a 75 year old woman but don't miss this, this or another wrong way raid.

Also not to be missed, Pete Guither has a close encounter with a fake drug search roadblock on his way to Thanksgiving dinner. Pete also has a some great posts about the ongoing war on poppy growers in Afghanistan. Just start at the top and keep scrolling.

Terry Nall has the sad story of another innocent victim of a drug raid.

And Micah at the DARE Diary has a disturbing story on privatized high school drug searches. It seems an ex-cop and his drug dog found a way to keep profiting from the prohibition.

Finally, I sure I don't need to post this link, but just in case you're not in the habit of checking thehim's drug war roundup, you really should be availing yourself of his delicious assorted mix of the latest mayhem in the WOsD.
