ALERT: Latest Govt Entrapment Meme: not MK-ULTRA, it's MK-Occupy! Drugging Pliant OWS Activists!Submitted by AnCapMercenary on Wed, 05/02/2012 - 20:21
Drugging gullible OWS useful idiots: as an incentive to take 'illegal' drugs with local police approval (it's a taxpayer funded state program!) for the sole purpose of building an army of Snitches for leverage, entrapment, and to bolster DUI arrests!
Just what is wrong with these lunatic statists? What sociopathic eugenicist test tubes are they genetically engineered to be bred in?
I can imagine in not too distant future, undercovercops randomly handing out flyers as any street protestor or rent-a-hire for local event organizers/vendors would, except it'll be laced with some illicit drug, then say that if you're an innocent pedestrian just minding your business and the informant or an undercovercop randomly walked up to you in a panhandler type manner and simply handed you that laced-with-illicit-drugs-flyer, as soon as you accept it, they'd constitute that as 'drug trafficking,' and arrest and jail you on the spot!
That would've sounded far off even couple of yrs ago, but these days? Nothing these govt terrorists do, would surprise me in the slightest anymore, unfortunately.
The following video is no less crazy. Just what has this Republic turned into? Rhetorical, I know. But no amount of head shaking seems to be enough...
A Minnesota activist captures and documents it all.

Editor’s note: This video needs to go viral. It provides more evidence that the war on drugs is a criminal enterprise. It also shows how the cops are responsible for the drug problem in Minnesota and are using tax payer money to get young people high on illegal drugs. It is very interesting that the police are conducting their DRE op in Peavey Plaza where OWS people are active. After the OWS launched their Spring offensive, the feds responded by arranging a bogus terror plot on a Cleveland Bridge and have also apparently mailed themselves white powder to drum up terrorism fears. Both incidents have been pinned on the OWS movement by the establishment media.

Video documentation by local activists and independent media shows that police officers and county deputies from across Minnesota have been picking up young people near Peavey Plaza for a training program to recognize drug-impaired drivers. Multiple participants say officers gave them illicit drugs and provided other incentives to take the drugs. The Occupy movement, present at Peavey Plaza since April 7th, appears to be targeted as impaired people are dropped off at the Plaza, and others say they've been rewarded for offering to snitch on the movement.
Local independent media activists and members of Communities United Against Police Brutality began investigating police conduct around the Plaza after witnessing police dropping off impaired people at the plaza and hearing rumors that they were offering people drugs. We videotaped police conduct and interviewed participants, learning some very disturbing information about the DRE program.
Officers stated on record the DRE program, run by the Minnesota State Patrol, has no Institutional Review Board or independent oversight. They agreed no ambulances or EMTs were on site at the Richfield MnDOT facility near the airport where most subjects were taken. Multiple times, participants left Peavey Plaza sober, returned intoxicated, and said they'd been given free drugs by law enforcement. We documented on more than one occasion, someone being told they were sober by one officer, and then picked up by a different officer, and returning intoxicated.
Given the dangers of impaired driving, there is value in training law enforcement officers to distinguish between the effects of various drugs and several common medical conditions. However, we have captured video footage of instances in which DRE trainees recruited subjects who are not already impaired, and those participants say they were given drugs by the officers.
Although program documents indicate that participants must sign a waiver, https://dps.mn.gov/divisions/msp/forms-reports/Documents/SFS...... there was no indication from any of the participants interviewed that a waiver was offered or obtained. Further, video footage seems to validate the recollections of participants that no medical personnel or ambulance were on site during the observation and testing in Richfield. A DRE officer told one of our investigators that no Institutional Review Board assessment of the program has been made, a requirement of all experiments involving human subjects. Since it's unethical to encourage people to take drugs--whether by giving them drugs directly or enticing them with food, cigarettes, or other rewards (which participants say they were given)--it is unlikely such a program would pass IRB review as it endangers the test subjects.
According to the WCCO article from May 2011, officer trainees in the past have worked with various non-profit organizations to recruit drug users. It would appear now that they are no longer relying solely on this tactic, instead recruiting users directly and, participants say, providing them with drugs. After the sessions, these individuals are then dropped off in public areas without supportive care, creating a public safety hazard. In an example at Peavey Plaza caught on film, an individual who said he's been smoking courtesy of the police for an hour, crossed a line of Minneapolis police barricades, climbed to the top of a large sign and sat 15 feet above the sidewalk swinging his arms and legs in front of a police camera.
Our investigation points to particular efforts to target and recruit youth. Further, law enforcement officers have been taped recruiting people from the Peavey Plaza area of Nicollet Mall and have dropped off a number of impaired individuals at Peavey Plaza. In some instances, Minneapolis police squad cars were present while DRE trainees recruited people at Peavey Plaza. After receiving drugs, some subjects were asked to snitch on the Occupy movement or asked about various people and activities of Occupy, they said. Given efforts by the Minneapolis city council to pass an ordinance designed to restrict access to Peavey Plaza by the Occupy movement, the conduct of DRE trainees points to the possibility that they are working hand-in-glove with Minneapolis police to discredit and disrupt the Occupy movement.
"I think most people would be very surprised to have our tax dollars used to get people high," states Michelle Gross, president of Communities United Against Police Brutality. "These activities call into question the methods and motives of this DRE training."
UPDATE 1: Dan Feidt of HongPong.com who shot the above video, interviewed by Alex Jones on last night's Infowars Nightly News, Thursday, May 3rd, 2012:
SHOCKING VIDEO! Police Caught in the Act of Drugging Protestors?
Published on May 4, 2012 by TheAlexJonesChannel
Alex Jones interviews Dan Feidt, who recently produced alarming video documentation that shows police officers and county deputies from across Minnesota picking up young people near Peavey Plaza for a training program to recognize drug-impaired drivers. Multiple participants say officers gave them illicit drugs and encouraged them to be informants.
UPDATE2: After Dan Feidt's expose went viral, and Alex Jones/InfoWars bringing more scrutiny to the program, the statist policestate cockroaches scurry away & 'suspend' the OWS drugging program:
May 9, 2012
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety issued a press release today announcing the suspension of a drug recognition program conducted by the Minnesota State Patrol. The program was exposed earlier this month by activists and members of Communities United Against Police Brutality in Minneapolis.
Prior to the press release, Eric Roeske, a State Patrol public information officer, said, “there’s been no evidence or no information that has been presented to us that would substantiate any of the allegations,” City Pages reports today.
“Our investigation points to particular efforts to target and recruit youth,” ostensibly for a program designed to train police in detecting drivers under the influence of drugs, Infowars.com reported on May, 2012.
