Law Enforcement Against Prohibition

To me, this a pretty damned powerful video. The guilt, regret, and introspection apparent in these former cops is striking -- and admirable.He's right. Watch this video. Show it to your friends, blog it, pass it along. If only a Nixon could go to China, perhaps it is also true that only a Chief of Police can end Prohibition. Worth a try, anyway.
LEAP needs more attention. This is an organization of 5,000 current and former law enforcement officials who recognize the failure and the damage effected by the war on drugs. And it has grown to 5,000 from just five founding members a few years ago. Seems to me that that's pretty newsworthy.
