The war on drugs takes a twisted turn as cops in Minnesota have been accused/caught handing out drugs to DRE (Drug Recognition Expert) subjects at Occupy Minneapolis.
An independent journalist, Dan Feidt, who investigated the claims said “The sheriff is getting people to do drugs and then they drop you back off at the plaza.”
In giving further details Feidt went on to say “Essentially, we kind of think that one thing that may have happened is an officer in a rural town called Hutchinson was encouraged to step forward and talk to his police chief about seeing a state trooper handing out marijuana to DRE [Drug Recognition Expert] subjects. And as soon as that happened, his police chief talked to the state level Department of Public Safety, they started having an official investigation, they had to announce it, and that finally get the local media rolling on the whole thing.”
