California Cops Generate Two More Drug War Deaths

California police have shot and killed two people in separate drug law enforcement incidents in the past week. Luis Morin of Coachella and Mark Ayala of El Centro become the 7th and 8th persons to die in US domestic drug law enforcement operations so far this year.

According to the San Bernardino Sun, citing police sources, the first killing, which occurred last Monday night, happened when a Riverside County sheriff's deputy attempted to arrest Morin on felony warrants.

"When the officer attempted to take the subject into custody, an altercation occurred, which resulted in an officer-involved shooting," Deputy Armando Munoz said.

Morin died at the scene, according to the coroner's office.

Police didn't specify what the warrants were for, but later in the week, Morin's family members told KESQ TV News that one was for possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and the other was for grand theft auto. The family also expressed anger with the unnamed deputy who shot Morin.

"He did not come to serve a warrant," said Morin's father. "He came with bad intentions. I would love to see him prosecuted."

The deputy has been placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation by Riverside County prosecutors.

Two days later, according to KSWT 13 News, citing police sources, members of the Imperial County Narcotics Task Force shot and killed Ayala in a taxi in El Centro. The Imperial Valley Press reported that task force members present included Border Patrol and DEA agents, as well as agents from the Imperial County District Attorney's Office.

Police said Ayala was wanted for unspecified parole or probation violations and that he was armed. But they did not say whether he had brandished a weapon or fired at them. Ayala was hit by multiple shots and died at the scene. No police were injured.

A witness, who didn't want her name used, told KSWT 13 that Ayala was still in the back seat of the taxi when officers opened fire.

"I was in the kitchen and heard tires screeching and then I went outside," said the woman identified only as Guadelupe, whose remarks were printed in Spanish. "When I got outside, I saw a taxi and the officers were already pointing their guns at the guy in the back seat. "There was a lot of shooting," she said.

DEA is out of control

Someone needs to put a stop to this! The DEA is out of control. They treat pain patients like Hitler treated the Jews. They give pain patients a bad name and have the public believing that all pain patients are drug addicts. If drug addiction is such a problem, then there needs to be more help for drug addicts. Drug addicts are people too and if they had help, and weren't ridiculed, they would probably seek help.

If you look at the UK

If you look at the UK casualties from illegal drugs they average out at around 500 pa. The UK war on drugs costs us £80 m pa. That's not good value for money in any country. Most of the 500 who did have taken a narcotic and the reason they are dead is that they have overdosed. If they had bought it from Boots they wouldn't have overdosed because they'd have known the strength of the drug they were taking.

During the prohibition of

During the prohibition of alcohol the United States of America was the largest importer of cocktail shakers! That says it all. Legalize it all, do not stop at decriminalization, legalize it all. Set up systems that support drug educate, research, treatment, and an industry that replaces the drug cartel industry that flourishes today. Imagine what our world would be like if the cartel employees were in legal jobs with training, retirement funds, medical benefits. Families would thrive.

doing

Legalize and regulate all drugs. End the drug war. Portugal did it and drug use went down. Crime rates went down too. What we're doing--forcing everyone to obey Christian morality--is counterproductive and crazy. It's as if we didn't learn one thing from the prohibition of alcohol. daniela
