THE MORMON FAMILY MASSACRE COULD MAKE THE BLOODY DRUG WAR IN MEXICO WORSE
PHILIPPINE PRESIDENT RODRIGO DUTERTE HAS APPOINTED AN OPPOSITION LEADER AS HIS NEW 「DRUG CZAR」, A SURPRISE MOVE THAT MAY OR MAY NOT MOLLIFY RISING CRITICISM OF HIS CONTROVERSIAL 「WAR ON DRUGS」 CAMPAIGN.
TRUMP AND OTHER DRUG WARRIORS REFUSE TO FACE THE REALITY THAT AS LONG AS THE UNITED STATES RETAINS A POLICY OF DRUG PROHIBITION, VIOLENCE IN MEXICO LIKELY WILL GET WORSE, NOT BETTER. AMERICANS SPEND AN ESTIMATED $146 BILLION ANNUALLY ON CURRENTLY ILLEGAL DRUGS, ACCORDING TO A RECENT RAND CORPORATION STUDY, AND MEXICO IS AN ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT SUPPLIER. RIVAL CARTELS VIE WITH EACH OTHER TO CONTROL THE LUCRATIVE TRAFFICKING ROUTES INTO THE UNITED STATES, USING ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
MEXICO HAS USED ITS MILITARY IN A WAR ON DRUG CARTELS SINCE 2006. DESPITE THE ARREST OR KILLING OF LEADING TRAFFICKERS, THE CAMPAIGN HAS NOT SUCCEEDED IN REDUCING DRUG VIOLENCE AND HAS LED TO MORE KILLINGS AS CRIMINAL GROUPS FIGHT AMONG THEMSELVES.
THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE PHILIPPINES HAS ACCEPTED PRESIDENT RODRIGO DUTERTE"S OFFER FOR HER TO PLAY A LEAD ROLE IN HIS DEADLY CRACKDOWN AGAINST DRUGS, EVEN THOUGH SHE HAS BEEN CRITICAL OF THE CAMPAIGN AND HAS BEEN WARNED IT COULD BE A POLITICAL PLOY TO DESTROY HER.
“IF SHE HAS BEEN CRITICISING THE DRUG WAR AS INEFFECTIVE, THEN THERE MUST BE IDEAS ON HER MIND TO MAKE IT EFFECTIVE,” PRESIDENTIAL SPOKESMAN SALVADOR PANELO SAID ON TELEVISION.

「IT IS NOT THAT THE GOVERNMENT WOULD HAVE TO DECLARE WAR ON THE DRUG CARTELS, IT IS RATHER THAT THE DRUG TRAFFICKERS HAVE DECLARED WAR ON THE GOVERNMENT,」 GONZALEZ SAID, 「AND IN THAT SITUATION THE GOVERNMENT HAS TO RESPOND IN LEGITIMATE SELF-DEFENSE AND WITH PROPORTIONAL FORCE.」
A GROUP OF 43 DISAPPEARED STUDENTS, WHOSE EXACT FATE REMAINS UNKNOWN, ARE THE MOST TROUBLING SYMBOL OF VIOLENCE THAT HAS SCOURGED MEXICO SINCE THE WAR ON DRUGS BEGAN
THIS MASS COMMUTATION AND REDUCTION OF PENALTIES SIGNALS A GROWING RECOGNITION THROUGHOUT THE U.S. THAT THE 「WAR ON DRUGS」 HAS BEEN A MONUMENTAL FAILURE. WITH BILLIONS OF DOLLARS SPENT ON PRISONS, PROSECUTIONS AND POLICE, THIS 「WAR」 HAS NOT DRAMATICALLY REDUCED DRUG CONSUMPTION, ONE OF THE INTENDED RESULTS. INCREASED DRUG ENFORCEMENT OVER THE PAST 50 YEARS HAS HELPED FUEL A VAST EXPANSION OF THE NATION』S PRISON SYSTEM, GIVING THE UNITED STATES THE WORLD』S HIGHEST INCARCERATION RATE. OKLAHOMA IMPRISONS A LARGER PERCENTAGE OF ITS RESIDENTS THAN ALMOST ANY OTHER STATE.

ACTIVE CONTRIBUTION OF THE MANAGEMENTS OF THOSE COMMERCIAL PLACES TO INDONESIA'S WAR ON DRUG BY, FOR INSTANCE, REPORTING ANY INDICATIONS OF SUSPICIOUS DRUG TRAFFICKING ACTIVITY WOULD PREVENT OTHERS FROM FALLING PREY TO THE DRUG DEALERS' TRAPS, HE EMPHASIZED.
AS THOUSANDS HAVE BEEN KILLED IN PRESIDENT DUTERTE'S DRUG WAR, SOME GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS ARE LEARNING TO TREAT PEOPLE WHO USE DRUGS WITH EMPATHY.
THE DESIGNERS CALL THEMSELVES THE “LOW-HANGING FRUIT” OF THE DRUG WAR. BECAUSE GLORY-OBSESSED COPS COULDN’T SNARE THEIR REAL TARGET, SAID ALEXANDER, “THEY WENT FOR THE DECORATORS WHO WERE QUEER AND CONSIDERED WEAKER. WE WERE LIKE COLLATERAL DAMAGE IN THE WAR ON DRUGS, WHICH WE KNOW IS A FARCE.”
ON THE FRONT LINE OF EUROPE'S DRUG WAR
MEXICAN PRESIDENT ANDRES MANUEL LOPEZ OBRADOR REITERATED HIS OPPOSITION WEDNESDAY TO A SUGGESTION FROM U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP THAT MEXICO WAGE WAR AGAINST ITS DRUG CARTELS AFTER SUSPECTED GANG MEMBERS MASSACRED NINE U.S. WOMEN AND CHILDREN IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THAT COUNTRY.
(BLOOMBERG) -- PHILIPPINE PRESIDENT RODRIGO DUTERTE IS LOOKING TO TRANSFER LAW ENFORCEMENT POWERS TO HIS DEPUTY WHO HEADS THE OPPOSITION CRITICAL OF HIS DRUG WAR THAT HAS KILLED THOUSANDS.
BRAZIL HAS LONG BEEN ONE OF THE WORLD』S LARGEST COCAINE MARKETS, BUT IT SHOULD NOT HAVE INSISTED ON A WAR STRATEGY THAT HAS FAILED IN ALL THE COUNTRIES THAT HAVE USED IT — NOTABLY MEXICO AND COLOMBIA. BRAZILIANS, PARTICULARLY IN RIO, MUST FIND OTHER WAYS TO ADDRESS DRUG TRAFFICKING AND INSECURITY, STARTING BY DISCUSSING ALTERNATIVES FOR POLICE ACTION THAT ARE LEGAL AND HUMANE — FOR EXAMPLE, REINFORCING THE PACIFYING POLICE UNITS AND OTHER COMMUNITY-CENTERED OPTIONS.
IT WAS A RAPID FALL FROM GRACE FOR OSCAR ALBAYALDE, THE HEAD OF THE PHILIPPINE NATIONAL POLICE (PNP), WHO ROSE TO FAME AS THE ENFORCER OF RODRIGO DUTERTE』S WAR ON DRUGS IN MANILA BEFORE DUTERTE WAS APPOINTED PRESIDENT. ALBAYALDE HAS DENIED THE ALLEGATIONS.
MEXICO, CURRENTLY IN THE GRIP OF THE WORST CARTEL VIOLENCE SINCE THE START OF ITS 「DRUG WAR」 MORE THAN A DECADE AGO, IS NOW ALSO STRUGGLING WITH A GROWING DRUG ADDICTION PROBLEM. YET ITS DRUG TREATMENT SYSTEM IS IN DISARRAY.
