reason.tv: Mississippi drug war blues

Another drug war related post and it should remind you of this earlier post. Throw in the dynamics of race into this with the police officer being white and the man charged with his murder being black. Of course there were apparently no drugs found on his property but he's been in custody since 2001. Still not only is race a dynamic in this story but the police tactics which was described in the write up for this video as "military tactics". It should disturb fair people if there is a reason to suspect that a person might have been railroaded.

Look up more here.

EDIT: I forgot to add a link to my earlier post!
