WHEN we have a system in which rich people decide the fate of poor people, 
injustices inevitably follow ("High court rules it OK to evict granny," The 
Examiner, March 27).

Such is the case with the Supreme Court's decision Tuesday regarding drug 
policy and public housing. The policy it upheld is a totally unfair policy, 
since it applies only to poor people who live in public housing, and as 
such is highly discriminatory.

I wonder if any family member of any of the justices uses drugs, and I 
really would like them to lose their home if that's the case. I really 
would like them to get a taste of their own bitter, unjust medicine.

This decision is so utterly mean-spirited there's not even a name for it. 
And the fact that it was unanimous makes it even more disturbing. They 
should all be ashamed.
