Video of a minor drug bust in Columbia back in Feb is now making the rounds on the web.  

Where to start.  For starters, all they did was bust a guy for pot possesion.  Yeah, that was threatening.  

My wife volunteers at the animal shelter in Columbia and we foster cats from there.  We consider it a teeeeny island of progressive values in the otherwise vast sea of regressive redness that is central Missouri.

Slaughtering family pets in the name of the War On Drugs does not represent progressive values.  Heads should roll on this in city government but like all closed systems, a relative small town like Columbia typically ain’t good at changing things or making officials accountable.

Actions like this don’t reflect well on the city that’s for sure.

Bigger picture, it’s crap like this that shows the inherent stupidity in the so-called War on Drugs.
