(ANTIMEDIA) — After almost fifty years of the war on drugs, Americans are increasingly skeptical. But police officers around the country continue to dig their heels into enforcing the archaic policy.
Case in point: Over the weekend, NYPD officers made a low-level drug bust of cannabis and several vape cartridges, as well as a smattering of small baggies filled with white powder. The officers boasted about their achievement on Twitter, claiming they had taken down a Latin King Crew gang member and removed the “poison” from their community. In the photo, they also displayed $100, made up of a few twenties, tens, and fives.
Though that tweet received little traction, the NYPD News account also announced the drug bust, only to receive hundreds of responses mocking the officers over their claim that they are “Keeping #Flushing#Queens safe.”
