Nancy Grace: "People on Pot Shoot, Stab and Strangle Each Other"Submitted by Chris Fricasseeski on Fri, 01/17/2014 - 17:40
Former government prosecutor Nancy Grace provides an excellent representation of your average government prosecutor: a delusional, self-righteous, egomaniac willing to go to any length to obfuscate the truth and secure a conviction, or in this case to prove a point. Like Javert from Les Miserables, their moral doctrine in life is "upholding the law"; upholding the law is moral goodness and disobedience to the state is sin.
In this clip from her TV show, she says she's against legalizing marijuana because she's seen cases where marijuana users "shoot," "stab," and "strangle" people. She even says pot users commit DUIs and "wipe out entire families."
Incidentally, people completely sober do all those same things, but what's that matter when you're a government prosecutor trying to create hysteria?
The clip is an absolute pleasure to watch as one of her guests from MPP points out she's spewing 1930's reefer-madness propaganda, points out she's wrong on everything, and has a good laugh at her expense.
