    From an email from a police officer:

    ...I am a high ranking police officer who has worked in the Chicago area for the past 15 years. I have worked with the DEA at the federal level and at the state level, and I also teach criminal justice at Loyola University.  Let me just say that you have barely scratched the surface with how wasteful and destructive the American drug policy has been to our society.  While I do not agree that police conspire to ignore violent crimes, the sad fact is that violent crime detectives do not have nearly the resources that are available to narcotics agents.  It is insanity and law enforcement and society are too brainwashed to see the truth....

    Reality has a liberal bias.
