In a recent communication to me from Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson. The Senator said that she would do what ever it takes to fight the WAR ON DRUGS. When I presented her a factual event that took place in a small south Texas town she changed her tune. I will let you all in on what I described to Senator Hutchinson. In Feb.2005 a police officer from the small town of Floresville, TX. located 30 miles south of San Antonio, TX. A Police Cpl. gave voluntary testimony against a young man that accidently shot and killed his 16 year old best friend. You can imagine the devastation that this horrible event brought to the small town of Floresville,TX. The police officer testified to having used the 16 year old as a confidential informant, since the age of 14. "Non-Traditionally" of course. The child according to police was shot and killed because he had been found out. Senator Hutchinson resonded by saying the following, and I quote: Each day I am required to make difficult decisions based on information available to me and the views of my constituency. I say what a Novel approach and spin that Senator Hutchinson places on the death of a child at the hands of Law Enforcement and their War On Drugs.
