This Is The War On Drugs

July 2, 2014   ·   0 Comments

The federal government’s so-called “war on drugs” has proven to be a failure of colossal proportions and continues to unconsciously ruin or take the lives of innocent tax-paying citizens all across our nation. (Not to mention the family dog.)

Alecia Phonesavanh’s horrific story about what happened to her son, nicknamed “Baby Bou Bou”, and her other family members is a prime example of why our nation’s policy regarding drugs is in need of serious reconsideration and reformation.

While Alecia and her family were seeking what they thought was a safe haven with her sister-in-law in Georgia after their family home in Wisconsin burnt down a few months ago, the local five-0 decided to stop by and pay them a proper welcome-to-the-neighborhood visit SWAT team-style.

In order to avoid dropping by unannounced and empty handed, the fuzz decided to broadcast their arrival via flashbang grenade tossed into Baby Bou Bou’s crib while kicking the door in.

Well, that was just enough of a ruckus to rudely awaken Baby Bou Bou and his family members from what should have been an uninterrupted night’s slumber.

We know the local law enforcement authorities (ha-ha, “authorities”, what a joke) are way too busy to offer social calls to everyone that’s new in town, so just what in the h-e-double-hockey-sticks were they looking for at Alecia’s sister-in-law’s house? Please tell me it was something significant like a deranged sociopath that was on a killing spree and had to be stopped via storm trooper-esque force!?!

Well, as it turns out, they were looking for Alecia’s husband’s nephew who they suspected of possessing a small amount of an unnamed illicit drug. Worse yet? The nephew doesn’t even reside in the sister-in-law’s home! So the fuzz were acting on misinformation! Oy vey!

Here’s an excerpt from Alecia’s account of the horrid events that took place that night:

After the SWAT team broke down the door, they threw a flashbang grenade inside. It landed in my son’s crib. Flashbang grenades were created for soldiers to use during battle. When they explode, the noise is so loud and the flash is so bright that anyone close by is temporarily blinded and deafened. It’s been three weeks since the flashbang exploded next to my sleeping baby, and he’s still covered in burns.

My husband’s nephew, the one they were looking for, wasn’t there. He doesn’t even live in that house. After breaking down the door, throwing my husband to the ground, and screaming at my children, the officers – armed with M16s – filed through the house like they were playing war. They searched for drugs and never found any.

This is a direct result of the so-called “war on drugs”, folks. It’s sad, but true. The perpetuation of our nation’s antediluvian drug laws puts innocent people in grave danger. It turns my stomach to think of the horrifying experience that Alecia and her family endured all because the cops suspected someone that doesn’t even live in the house may be possessing a “small amount of drugs”.

It’s also disheartening to hear her refer to the SWAT team’s actions as they “filed through the house like they were playing war”. That’s exactly what the federal government is supporting here, people, a war on human beings.

If you think that because you don’t use drugs that are considered illegal by our government’s antiquated standards that you’re not effected by drug prohibition, you’re living in a fantasy world.

Wake up and join the good fight by becoming involved on a grass roots level to help bring an end to the futile attack on the citizens of our beloved nation.
