The American Police State

I haven't smoked weed in 25-years but it's a personal choice. I'm not "clean and sober" because religious fanatics turned it into a crime! This country has gotten so self-righteously right-wing about drugs that they've turned our country into a prison state. Since Bush and Cheney took over, they're not even trying to hide their aggression, violence that has gone beyond the pale of civilized behavior.

Now comes this story. Are we going to let storm troopers kill a man's dogs over a stupid bust? Over marijuana? I'm sorry, but smoking weed or selling it NEVER justifies this blatant disregard for life and family. This country is going to have to come to terms with the people who are the REAL criminals in this fascist state.

Policeman Assaults Cyclist at Critical Mass Event

70,000 wheels in the air: Bikelifting after the
Hungarian Critical Mass,
Budapest, September 22, 2007

NYC: Have you ever wondered
if bicyclists have a right to use public roads? Did you think they were built for the exclusive use of motorists? Many states, including New York, have affirmed the right of use by cyclists. The cyclist rights group Critical Mass is playing a strong advocacy role in expanding this awareness in other states.

Another Critical Mass ride, another stunning display of police brutality. Watch as one of New York's finest violently shoves a cyclist off his bicycle, launching him through the air to the curb at 46th street and Seventh Avenue during Friday night's monthly Critical Mass ride.
