Militarization of Police

Sex, Spice, and Small-Town Texas Justice: The Purple Zone Raid

|

This past week, Reason TV released an investigative report about a smoke shop in tiny Alpine, Texas that was repeatedly raided by law enforcement, culminating in a disastrous DEA raid in May 2014.

The story hits a number of libertarian outrage buttons: militarized police raids, an abusive prosecutor, disturbingly subjective drug laws, First Amendment violations and intimidation of journalists.
