I was thinking yesterday about the DEA shooting 14-year-old Ashley Villereal in front of her house.
I was thinking about it being 13 months since the DEA said it would investigate itself, to see if killing the innocent girl was justified. The DEA has supposedly been investigating itself for more than a year. Is it finished? I guess not. When we call to ask, they never call us back.
But I am having a difficult time concentrating on the long-ago killing of Ashley. I am distracted by a brilliant tactic.
The DEA has loudly announced that it will crack down on Mom and Pop head shops in San Antonio. They're selling pipes and bongs that may be used for pot smoking. Just as they have for decades on end.
Yep, I'm distracted by this big DEA paraphernalia crackdown. It's so hard for me to keep remembering Ashley's killing, and the long investigation that has apparently gone nowhere.
That clever DEA. I can't concentrate. I'm thrown off the trail. I'm hopelessly distracted. It's the confusing fog of battle in the War On Drugs, isn't it.
