(Re: "When cops are thieves," Uncensored, March 5.) One unintended effect of
drug prohibition has been the criminalization of law-enforcement agencies.
Police are often found planting evidence, "testilying," outright drug
dealing, accepting bribes and even committing murder because of the money to
be made in an outlaw drug market.

The depth of corruption among these bandits with badges is seen when
these poltroons divide up confiscated property for their own private,
personal use. How can such thievery be allowed in a just society?

Cops should never be allowed to confiscate property on their own
"testilying" word.
