Man in SC Dies in Custody of Narcotics Officers

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 3rd 2012 by THCFinder

A man in South Carolina died recently in the custody of narcotics officers after selling an undercover officer some cocaine.

 

According to officers, the suspect was in the front seat of the police car. He proceeded to down a bottle of water, followed by a bottle of Gatorade. Then he went into a seizure.

 

All of that sounds a bit shady. Since when are coke dealers allowed to sit un-hancuffed in the front of a police car? Since when are people under arrest allowed to “chug” anything?

 

The 46 year-old suspect’s family said he had no history of seizures.  An autopsy said the man’s only injuries were two cracked ribs, which are consistent with the application of CPR. The coroner is awaiting toxicology reports.

 

According to Stopthedrugwar.org this man - Rodney Andrew Haymon – is the 26th person to die during domestic drug enforcement operations in 2012.

 

It’s hard to say whether Rodney would have died if he were not in police custody. But what really is the point of him being in custody at all? He sold cocaine to an undercover cop? Why? To make money.

 

Since cocaine is illegal, it is worth much more than it would be in a legal market. If it were legal the sale would be regulated, the black market would dry up and tax money could be used to build rehabs and deal with the real problem of drug addiction.

 

While in some areas this is not a popular opinion, you have to wonder at the logic of prohibition of any product when all it does is create a massive black market filled with violent criminals getting rich.

 

Why should anyone has to die during law enforcement operations when they are enforcing a failed policy?
