Proving that the USA does not corner the market on Thug Addiction and the Evil Religion of Hate, spurned on by the High Priests of Assigning Permanent Shame, the Holier-Than-Thou-Congregation, and the False Prophets of Prohibition, law enforcement in Canada terrorized 4 of their citizens (and their dog) for a few hours, subjecting them to all the humiliation and degradation possible.
Why? The cops convinced a judge to issue a search warrant to send one dozen police officers to terrorize them because at various times in the past, a cop thought he smelled marijuana coming from their house.
So let's see, because they thought they smelled marijuana growing in or near the house, they were able to dress themselves up in weaponry probably reminiscent of what is used to go after terrorists in foreign lands, get a serious adrenaline high due to sneaking around,
Societies can benefit greatly from police. What we DO NOT need is to empower them to fight this Evil Religion of Hate (Drug War).
This is not unique; untold numbers of people have been terrorized by "Peace Officers" who barged in to the wrong address, destroyed property, killed people, killed pets, and most of the time they don't apologize; then evil forces in government pat them on the back and say "they were just doing their job."

The link is dead, but UTTERLY NEEDLESS tragedies continue to happen because we continue to be dominated by those Sitting in the Seat of God who make themselves everyone's overlord.
