Texas grass-roots candidate for Attorney General Barry Cooper and his wife had their home raided and their son removed from their home on charges stemming from his pro-marijuana legalization activism and his recent attempts to expose corruption in law enforcement and the war on drugs. Mr. Cooper is a former narcotics officer and founder of the Never Get Busted web site.
The State specifically cited, as a reason for taking their child Zack, that Mr. Cooper and his wife are “unsuitable and create an environment where the children believe the government is out to harm them.”
After hearing Mr. Cooper’s story, we have no doubt that you’ll be as outraged about this as we are. And if you’re not, then you may want to re-read the US Constitution and consider whether or not what you’re teaching your children could one day be used to deem you an unsuitable parent.
We share Judge Napolitano’s views on this matter and support full prosecution of all parties involved. This is the United States of America. If they can do this to Mr. Cooper today, they can do it to any one of us tomorrow.
