SWAT drug bust in MO

Originally published at BunkBlog. You can comment here or there.

Once again, the War on (some) Drugs has been made to look stupid and petty by its very nature. This time around, a SWAT team busted into a family’s house, shot their two dogs (one of them a very threatening Corgi), arrested the father and traumatized a child. And the big bad druggies they busted? Oh, they were caught with what the police describe as a “small amount” of marijuana. The parents have been charged with possession and with child endangerment. The possession charge is a misdemeanor.

Just to be perfectly clear here – the police believe that possessing a small amount of marijuana is child endangerment, but shooting two family pets in front of that same child is perfectly reasonable behavior.

Ah, but you see, the parents were endangering the child by placing him in a position where he would see his family's dogs shot and his parents hauled away.

Is how I think the "thinking" in this case goes.
