Is the Drug War Constitutional and Legal?
Are anonymous informants legal in the AMERICAN legal system? No.
Are judges who disallow any defense for the accused following the law? No.
Is incarceration of innocent people cruel and unusual punishment. Yes.
HERE'S THE PROOF:(Amendments to the Constitution (Bill of Rights): Amendment VI
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.
When anonymous tipsters are not required to testify in court against the accused, it seems obvious that the 6th amendment is being blatantly violated. When evidence in the defendent's favor is disallowed in a trial, it seems unconstitutional. I also think that all these "presumptions" are 100% bullshit, such as presuming that a person is a drug dealer due to arbitrary circumstances, when there is no direct evidence of that. "Since you have baggies in your kitchen and 1.2 ounces of pot in the cupboard, you must be a drug dealer", etc., etc.
