Drugs Winning the War on Drugs
posted by August 24 at 17:32 PMon
Another bang-up job in the fight against drugs. This time, in Houston:
Police tell us a suspect who was shot during a drug raid Friday afternoon by an HPD officer did not have a weapon.
Police also did not find any drugs in the southeast Houston home.
A narcotics tactical unit says the suspect had his hands behind his back and made a threatening move. An officer then shot him in the chest with an assault rifle.
The man was in critical condition Friday night.
This is the only story I’ve found on the incident two days after the fact—it’s a whopping 73 words long. But how many articles would have been written and how much longer those articles would have been if—instead of an innocent man being shot in his home—the innocent man had shot the intruder, not realizing it was a cop? Would the article be as indifferent as this one?
