Winning the War on Drugs

posted by on September 15 at 14:58 PM

In sunny Mississippi.

Jackson Police spokesman Lt. Jeffery Scott said Ronnie Burton, 26, of Jackson, was shot once in the shoulder Friday when police and Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics agents attempted to serve a search warrant.

Scott could not discuss many details of the 8:30 p.m. raid at the house in the 6000 block of Lyndon B. Johnson Drive, except to say it was a “high risk” narcotics search.

Burton is charged with four counts of aggravated assault on police and one count of shooting into an occupied police vehicle. No other arrests were made and no other injuries were reported.

Absent from this report is mention of any drugs found. Who’da thunk? Sober people flip out and start shooting when police break down their doors.
