  • Yes, the War on Drugs is the source of much tension

    The cash profits of illicit drug trade are too strong of a lure for someone in poverty. So strong, 1 in 3 blacks will be imprisoned. Making it difficult to get a job. And meaning their kids are raised by gangs. And rebellion against unjust laws feeds into the Thug Life mentality as well. Gary Johnson is right. Time to drop the miserably failed War on Drugs and take a sensible approach.

  • Yes, the drug war is the root cause of police shootings.

    The Libertarian Party's presidential candidate, Gary Johnson, is correct that the war on drugs is the root cause of many police shootings. The war on drugs has pitted law enforcement against many inner-city communities; creating a hostile environment for both groups. Furthermore, the war on drugs fuels a lot of additional crimes as well. Many non-violent drug offenders are imprisoned which turns some into hardened criminals.

  • Police shootings are more complex than we think

    The war on drugs has been a long and complex one, but it is not the "root cause" of police shootings. Rather, I believe that racism is the foundation of this type of violence because white police officers are more likely to instinctively view black people as a threat and therefore are more likely to kill them.

  • No, the drug war is not the root cause of police shootings.

    The cause of police shootings is varied and complex with no one root cause. Drugs, racial profiling, gangs, and many other factors are present. The aggressive, angry, and entitled attitude of some suspects as well as the aggressive, angry attitude of some police officers is far more of a contributing factor than the so-called drug war.

  • Drug war has nothing to do with this issue.

    Drugs aren't here, and haven't been in any of the recent shootings. I personally feel that this is more of a racial profiling issue, and involves cops gone rogue. Drugs have nothing to do with this. Whatever is provoking these cops however, must be fixed. Maybe install a federal agency overlooking all state-level operations? There are many solutions, someone just has to act upon them.
