If these perps were violent, then good for the cops. However, the War on Drugs - and prohibition policies in general - are NOT good for America. For every violent thug that's arrested for drug crimes, there are tens or hundreds of nonviolent people going to jail for years. Parents ripped away from their families, children taken from their homes - it's gotten way out of hand. http://recovery1st.hubpages.com/hub/The-War-on-Drugs-Who-Its-Really-Hurting
