1969

That was the first year I was arrested and told that this (additional time)was going to be added to my sentence.I was waiting for my wife to return with some heroin and was sitting in my car that was beside a church.When the police tossed a 10 pound boulder through the windshield right at my face.....,nothing.As I was kicked under my car I heard the priest ask what they were doing."Police!"they said" ."OK" he answered back."Do you need a witness?"To the police,not to me.I never forgot that.Nor did I forget the following interrogation where I was informed the rules about trafficking in the vicinity of a church,school or playground.In 1969,it was extremely hard to find any location that didn't fall within the rather generous boundaries.I think that was kind of the point.I had heard they were discussing it but had no idea it had been made law.It used to be the only thing they could ever agree on so totally that implementation was almost instantaneous.In 1969 the politicians almost all agreed on prohibition.The more draconian,the better.

They smashed your windshield

They smashed your windshield with a damn cinder block to gain access to your vehicle? Holy shit, that's some jackboot b.s. right there. Using violence to make an arrest for a non-violent crime, whodathunk?

Gangs in Black and Blue

It should never surprise a person exposed to state-sanctioned violence that it's allowed to exist, when the country you're living in is as corrupt and violent as its police force.  USA, Inc is in a police-state condition and the troops are armed and angry.  They won't put up with even the most harmless of resistance.  When times are ugly and corrupt, violent and criminal, the only real protest is the beauty of truth - to speak it, expose it, teach it and live it.  Thanks.

This is just part of the new jim crow

You said, "The law essentially says that if you're black, if you're brown, or if you're urban, you're gonna get a longer sentence than anyone else. That's surely not what the legislature intended."

Of course that's what the legislature intended! That's the main point of the drug laws, as documented by Michelle Alexander in The New Jim Crow.

Funny, Obama wants to spend one billion dollars to fight opiate drug abuse-meanwhile our soldiers are guarding poppy fields from being destroyed by the Taliban.

MY HIV CURE TESTIMONY

 PLEASE PARDON ME, I JUST HAVE TO SHARE THIS MY LIFE TESTIMONY HERE ON HOW I GOT A CURE FOR HIV...
I was diagnosed of HIV until i heard of a traditional doctor with lot of  testimonies and post from people making reference to DOCTOR BOADI ABIODUN on how he used his spiritual herbal medicine called TATAHWE to cure them of their diseases. Some from HIV ( with a very
low cd4 count), HEPATITIS, HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS , DIABETIC, CANCER, ASTHMA and many more... Although i did not believe in Native herbs I
decided to give it a trial so I took his contact and messaged him via whatsapp chat  ( +2348071180211 ),with  the response he gave,
he promised to prepare a medicine for me that will flush the virus away from my system totally  and It was not up to a week after I placed an order, I got the medicine and  he instructed me to drink the medicine for two weeks ( morning and evening) after which, I should go back to the hospital for a Re-Test. I followed his instructions and I went for the test the following week after i had finish taken the Tatahwe medicine,its very surprising i tested negative. I can't thank dr Boadi enough, so I decided to promote him in the best way i can.
 PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL OF FAKE DOCTORS AND IMPERSONATOR ONLINE ALL THEY DO IS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE ON PATIENT WITH
THIS VIRUS WITHOUT SOLUTION OR SENDING MEDICINE. I WAS ONCE A VICTIM OF FRAUD BEFORE I HEARD OF THIS MAN. AND I
RECEIVED THE MEDICINE BEFORE SENDING HIM CHARGES.
For more  information you can contact Dr Abiodun Boadi on;
 +2348071180211 (whatsapp connect)
 +2347037373235 (CALL)
