Battlefield: Prohibition Driving Gang Violence in Fort Pierce

Fort Pierce has been plagued with gang violence as homicides and shootings have become a regular occurrence.  Sadly Michael Goforth laments that we need more gun laws since violent criminals obey current laws.

TCPalm Drug Editorial Riddled with Fallacies and Institutionalized Racism

Sadly TCPalm has published an editorial that shows a lack of understanding of drug prohibition and meanwhile continues advocacy for jailing minorities for victimless crimes. The editorial staff highlights a recent drug bust in Saint Lucie County that officials tout as a $10.4 million dollar operation.  Usually those numbers are inflated as law enforcement officials […]
