11. thanks Bjorn.. I had to share this on your post also
As you can imagine I am beyond angry about this. i have worked at a psych and drug hospital in Central Ca back in the 90s and worked with young adults at this hospital as well as chronic mentally ill adults who were homeless at times.
And this fall I participated in Occupy and stayed the night on a couple occasions and watched these young people who the cops are preying upon.
I was at celebrations of May Day yesterday and brought food for OccupyMN at Loring park. One of the other women asked if I had heard about state troopers providing drugs to young adults at Peavy Plaza, then taking them to a place to take the drugs, and then drop them back off at Peavy Plaza while they are high. Police, deputies, or troopers have also taken people from the jail and provided them with drugs and give them the option to drop them off at jail or Peavy Plaza. At first I didn't think the women had it right.. but today this video was put out by some independent journalists and this evening I was talking to another women who is active with Occupy and also a retired nurse. She hasn't seen the video but had also heard the stories from the young people. She informed me that one of the young men that took the drugs and was dropped off also has seizures and he seems to also have mental illness.
I sent the video and the following questions to my minneapolis state Senator and state Rep as well as the state Attorney General.
Do you know of the DRE program ?
Do you support enforcement agents from other counties picking up young people in the city of Minneapolis and providing them with drugs?
and dropping them off a city park while they are high ?
Will the state be held responsible if a person who has taken meth or other hard drugs flips out and kills or assaults someone at the plaza after then have been dropped off ?
Do you support our tax dollars being used in such a way?
I hope others send the video to their MN state reps and senators.
