Holy S***: NY Detective Admits To Planting Cocaine On Innocent Citizens Just To Make Drug-Bust Quota; Says Practice Is Widespread

This really shocks me -- the "widespread" part. Because this guy was doing this on behalf of a buddy, so at least two people were involved. When he then says a lot of cops do this, I have to take that seriously.

I think we need to repeal the drug laws. We cannot apparently trust agents of the government even to avoid framing people with fairly serious offenses just to meet a bureaucratic quota.

And while these criminals were framing people, how many other criminals were plying their craft?

Yes, this is about corruption, but it's about a specific type of corruption: The corruption that begins infecting police and politicians in prohibition regimes. We should not pass laws that routinize law-breaking, and then, inevitably, routinize corruption.

Unbelievable. And to think I have previously laughed at blacks who complain the police are framing them for drug crimes.
