14-Year Veteran Undercover Cop Exposes Truth About The Drug War: “I Used To Believe I Was Doing Good”.

“When I went into policing I thought addicts had made the mistake of trying drugs and had no willpower to stop. Actually, problematic drug users – or at least all the ones I knew – were self medicating. Most of the heroin users I knew were self-medicating for childhood trauma, whether physical or sexual. As an undercover officer I spent a great deal of time getting to know these people.

I have been saying that for over 12 years.

What I’m looking for now is a Christian explanation for making war on abused children.

I posed the “Christian” question to some “Christian” blogs. It just made the Christians angry. The thinking likely is “We are Christians. Therefor any program we favor is by definition – moral.” Thus I’m questioning the unquestionable.

But take heart my friends.

“A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.” – Max Planck

The same is true for new moral truths. Like the abolition of slavery. Or Prohibition can’t work.
