Another Drug War Casualty

Add the morale and morality of portions of Atlanta's police force to the butcher's bill of the ridiculous war on drugs.
Atlanta police narcotics officers often falsified search warrants to make busts and pad their arrests records hoping to satisfy goals set for them by upper brass, federal investigators said...That accusation was noted in the guilty plea agreements of narcotics officers Gregg Junnier and Jason R Smith and confirms what police union members and other critics have long said: that pressure on quotas caused officers to bend the rules.

A 92 year old woman dead. Two police officers convicted of manslaughter. APD morale possibly at an all time low. All very tragic. All just part of another day in the useless drug war.
