Sounds like Willimantic is full of Puerto Rican criminals, like Hartford. I'm glad the police are trying to rid the town of crime since it sounds like it's rampant there.

One way tickets to Puerto Rico would rid the state of a lot of this and make room in the prisons. Why should we pay for these idiots with our tax money.

Excuse me it seems to me that you're a very ignorant person, I'm Puerto Rican and I am also a tax payer, I've worked all my life and I don't appreciate your comments not all Puerto Rican's are low lifes or criminals, so I suggest you get your facts straight.

If we genuinely want to rid residential neighborhoods of drug-dealing in apartments and on street corners, we would replace drug prohibition with a legally regulated market. That's how we got the mob out of the wholesale liquor business and moved the retail business to designated zones. That's how we eiminated a huge amount of organized crime and corruption as well as street crime and turf wars. The same should now apply to the other drugs besides alcohol: legal regulation of the manufacture, labeling and distribution, to licensed retailers. I propose consumers get a license for any class of drug they would buy, so they will be educated about the hazards and least harmful use precautions, as well as have access to counseling or treatment as needed. This would eliminate a vastamount of crime, virtually eliminate accidental poisonings and overdoses due to adulterated (unregulated) drugs, and allow law enforcement and the courts to concentrate on REAL criminals: those who violate the persons or property of others.

You guys are great examples of the racism that has always pervaded drub prohibition laws. It goes a long way in explaining how such hypocritical and irrational drug laws (ex: banning the drugs prefered in certain subcultures while allowing equally dangerous drugs preferred in the majority culture) remain politically viable, despite their disastrous effects on public health and safety (unregulated drugs are much more dangerous than they would be under regulation; the trade in these drugs becomes turf wars and contract disputes not settleable through courts, etc). But the racism of the drug war is an additional disgrace, above and beyond the damage prohibition does to public health and safety.

Anyone who doubts the racism of the drug war, please just say so and I'll be glad to substantiate this historically and in the present.

I agree with you- There is a great documentary I believe titled,
"Drug War: The White Man's Last Hope". Worth checking out

So long as drug prohibition laws exist, the drug market will spill into neighborhoods and apartments. By abdicating their constitutional duty to regulate the market, the lawmakers instead maximize crime and maximize the dangers of drugs and the drug trade by turning it over to organized crime and freelance locals. The $hundreds of Billions$ annual drug market guarantees the supply will never dry up, just get squeezed into the underground economy where it can corrode the rule of law and bloat the budgets and careers of the police agencies created to fight the crime prohibition creates.

I get so much bait like that thrown at me that I could run one of these:

http://www.hickerphoto.com/data/media/164/fis...

But considering the causes I take up, I guess you’d also have to call me an Iraqi black child immigrant ex-factory-working, junkie, gay, Third-World-Debt-paying, uninsured, epidemic victim of curable diseases. But I prefer to let Johnny Cash sing it best for me:

[Man In Black lyrics on http://www.metrolyrics.com ]

Well, you wonder why I always dress in black,
Why you never see bright colors on my back,
And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone.
Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on.

I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he's a victim of the times.

I wear the black for those who never read,
Or listened to the words that Jesus said,
About the road to happiness through love and charity,
Why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me.

Well, we're doin' mighty fine, I do suppose,
In our streak of lightnin' cars and fancy clothes,
But just so we're reminded of the ones who are held back,
Up front there ought 'a be a Man In Black.

I wear it for the sick and lonely old,
For the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold,
I wear the black in mournin' for the lives that could have been,
Each week we lose a hundred fine young men.

And, I wear it for the thousands who have died,
Believen' that the Lord was on their side,
I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died,
Believen' that we all were on their side.

Well, there's things that never will be right I know,
And things need changin' everywhere you go,
But 'til we start to make a move to make a few things right,
You'll never see me wear a suit of white.

Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything's OK,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black

I should also welcome my Indiana Stalker to this thread. He follows me from thread to thread. How many threads is it now, my Hoosier Friend? Gotta wonder why he follows me around. Actually, me thinks he points the krazy finger a little too much, gotta wonder what motivates him. Then again, he's shown neither rhyme nor reason, so I guess there's none there to look for....

You sound like you're ready to shoot up a lot of bars and pharmacies. Why are you so filled with hate?

But of course you have a very prejudicial, arbitrary definition of which druggies should be mass murdered and which should be doctors, lawyers, judges, lawmakers, police, priests, etc. At least I can thank you for showing the kind of motives drawn to drug war. You disgrace the policy more than any critique ever could.

"Hurt"

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of shit
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end

You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way
