Law Enforcement created problem
10 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The problem with this documentary is it shows things from the POV of a cop on his beat rather than a sociological wide view of the issue. The conclusions it makes are due to this narrow scope. The fact is if law enforcement decriminalized this disease, all profit motive woukd be taken away from all the pushers in Mexico looking to expand their drug and crime related enterprises. You realky have to wonder where the line between law enforcement and criminality exists, if it does at all. If the law enforcement managers and top officers had the best interests of a community at heart, they would decriminalize this as well as the more profitable drug, cocaine. I understand why dumb beat cops will never see it this way, their perspective is to close to the problem at hand. However, when the ivy league educated managers of the law enforcement system continue the prohibition of illegal substances, with the knowledge of what prohibitions means for the black market businesses across the border, you have to wonder if at least these officers are making decisions to benefit their industry and employees over the interests of the innocent community members they police, if not out right collusion with black market business and their many employees both in Mexico and across the border. You really have to wonder who the police are for, themselves or the communities they happen to police. Increasingly, e police force is becoming more and more separate from the locality it serves, with specialized pros being bused in from other regions. It seems that the national police force is taking cues from China and other despotic countries, which find it easy to coerce police into oppressing citizens due to the targeted recruitment rural bumpkins to police urban areas like Beijing or city dweller to police rural areas. The way Tianemien Square worked was because the army used to quash the democratic urban dwellers was composed of uneducated rural farm boys who had no literacy let alone a college degree, As long as we the tax payers stay out of our community police forces' business, they will continue to increasing detach themselves and eventually become more similar to an hired security force rather than an integral part of a communities health and well being- which is what they used to be-remember being a police officer used to he something that. Was respected!!!
