The culmination of everything I've been stealing from the Agitator for the past year: Radley Balco's paper for the Cato Institute, Overkill: The rise of paramilitary police raids in America.

For those who don't want to read the paper, you can have some fun with this interactive map, which chronicles botched paramilitary raids state-by-state. Many of these raids result in the death of police, and the death of innocent civilians. In some cases, no charges are ever filed following the raids. The lonely libertarian fins the whole report to be an indictment of the war on drugs.

Is it really worth all this death, and all this chaos, to protect us from our own bad choices?
