Police admitted their mistake, saying faulty information from a drug informant contributed to the death of John Adams Wednesday night. They intended to raid the home next door.

    Policing is a Hollywood-style playground for belligerent egomaniacs high on adrenalin fixes. This country needs to put a stop to drug raids. PERIOD. End them. I'm sick of reading and seeing story after story of society-'protecting' jerkoffs killing, maiming, and mentally destroying citizens over the goddamn drug trade.
