Militarization of Police

Best of 2014: "Sex, Spice and Small-Town Texas Justice: The Purple Zone Raid"

|

A young woman, the owner of a smoke shop in a tiny Texas town, is subject to repeated harrassment and increasingly violent raids by law enforcement intent on proving she is a purveyor of banned synthetic drugs.

Is she a brazen drug dealer or the victim of a long-standing vendetta of an ex-lover who also happens to be the District Attorney? Why was she charged with felony possession of controlled substances that were not banned at the time of her arrest? And why was law enforcement so intent on covering up the details of a disastrous DEA raid on the shop?

Watch Reason TV's "Sex, Spice and Small-Town Texas Justice: The Purple Zone Raid" for a story filled with so much outrageous abuse of authority, it truly beggars belief.
