June 19 2012, Governor Rick Snyder signed four bills that would ban synthetic drugs. This would include Spice, K2, and Bath Salts. But what took so long for the powers-that-be in Michigan to finally decide that enough was enough? HuffPost Detroit states that, “after local protests and several tragedies linked to ‘synthetic marijuana,’ Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder announced he will sign into law a package that would ban K2, Spice and other synthetic drugs including “bath salts.” One said protest was held in the city of Zeeland where two moms organized a protest in front of a local business that was carrying the product.
The tragedies surrounding the drugs included an incident in Miami, Fla. that made national news when bath salts, according to nbcsandiego.com, had “been linked to behavior behind multiple attacks that some have labeled ‘zombie apocalypse’.” Locally the incidents involved fatal overdoses and murder. According to HuffPost Detroit, “several tragedies, including a Bloomfield Township teen’s reported fatal overdose on synthetic marijuana and its alleged involvement in the case of Tucker Cipriano, who is charged with murdering his father.”
On the streets, police officers were left to battle an unregulated drug. Detective John Paul Damveld, drug investigator for the West Michigan Enforcement Team responded to Jabber Log in an email stating, “My opinion is that they have a larger reaction to these drugs, which usually causes hallucinations. One occasion led to a motor vehicle crash involving no injuries but both occupants believed they were severely hurt.”
While it was reported by mlive.com that a bill spearheaded by Lowell Republican Sen. Dave Hildenbrand was sent to the “state House for consideration,” a local outcry, as reported by HuffPost Detroit, “caused communities to enact their own bans and protest gas stations where the drugs were being sold.” With all this going on, one would ask why it took so long to pass a law banning synthetic drugs? In a recent interview with Jabber Log, Allegan County Sheriff’s Deputy Morgan Sullivan stated,
“Because these are synthetic drugs, lawmakers would make drug 1403-7 (a bath salt) illegal, so the manufacturers would simply change a molecule in 1403-8 maintaining the same effect but 1403-8 isn’t illegal. You know how long it takes to pass a law? Lawmakers couldn’t keep up.”
With a ban finally in place, mlive.com reported, “smoke shops, party stores, and gas stations in Michigan are clearing the products off their shelves.” In order to keep storeowners on the right side of the law, mlive.com reported, “The Michigan State Police has launched the “K2 is not OK” campaign to warn store owners that selling spice or bath salts will be illegal July 1. Distribution of the drugs carries a 7-year felony penalty under the new law.” How banning synthetic drugs will impact local communities is unknown but the main factor, according to Dep. Sullivan, is the risk.
“If there is someone that wants to use it, you can bet there will be someone ready to profit from it. On the plus side, most of the danger from those listed drugs was their accessibility. The deterrent now is the fact that you have to be willing to take much more of a risk to make it, sell it, buy it, and use it.”Post Views: 216
In the beginning of February, Jabber Log reported on the violence and gang activity in West Michigan. The story, set in Grand Rapids, followed a former gang member named Cruz and Mario Alfaro, a youth advocate and gang specialist with the Hispanic Center of Western Michigan. In the audio portion of the article, Cruz talked about his experience in a gang and how after he escaped he suffered a near fatal shooting. Alfaro’s story explains his affiliations with gangs and how when he moved to Michigan from California he was compelled to help his community by joining the center and help prevent gang violence through their Supporting Our Leaders (SOL) program.
Two days after the publication of this story a major bust occurred in the neighboring city of Holland.
“Thirty-one accused Latin Kings members were indicted on federal charges ranging from racketeering, to conspiring, to distribute cocaine and marijuana, to various weapons violations,” reported 24 Hour News 8 staff. Ricardo Martinez, a co-worker of Alfaro’s and Youth Advocate and School Liaison for the Supporting Our Leaders (SOL) Program commented on the landmark bust by saying, “It’s a large blow to that gang organization and it is something that has been needed in the city of Holland for a long time.”
24 Hour News 8 staff spoke with Holland Department of Public Safety’s Captain Jack Dykstra and quoted him as saying, “The Latin Kings organization has been around for 20 years and we’re just very happy that it’s starting to come to a close.” Martinez on the other hand feels that the Latin Kings are not done yet. “Although many of the heads of the gang are behind bars, there is several in line waiting to take the reigns.” Martinez goes on to say that, “It’s just a matter of time before they regroup but between the local authorities, the community and organizations like mine, we can help prevent as much violence as possible.”Post Views: 241
Imagine hearing your daughters scream. You run frantically to the barn and find an acquaintance molesting your daughter. You protect her by repeatedly punching him in the head. After several hits he dies. Was it justified or did you commit murder? In Shiner, Texas, this scenario occurred. The Christian Science Monitor states, “there’s little doubt among residents that a 23-year-old man who reportedly killed a man he found molesting his 5-year-old daughter in a horse barn should be hailed as a hero, not denounced as a criminal. Some legal experts have questioned why the father has not been charged yet,” and continued saying, “vigilante justice, no matter how the circumstances come about, can’t be tolerated in a civil society.”
What is Justifiable Homicide?
Merriam-Webster – a homicide (in self-defense, in preventing a felony involving great bodily harm, or in defense of one’s home or members of one’s family) justified or excused by law for which no criminal punishment is imposed.
A sharp increase in justifiable homicides appears to coincide with the introduction of “Stand Your Ground” laws in 2005. The increase is shown below in an infographic, courtesy of livescience.com. The recent case in Texas is only one of many regarding justifiable homicide and “Stand Your Ground” laws. Take for instance, the case of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla. In this case, according to The Washington Post, “Stand Your Ground” laws — are the same kind of legislation that authorities cited for not arresting a neighborhood-watch volunteer after 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was killed in Florida in February.”
Both cases are up for debate on whether or not the killings were justified and The Christian Science Monitor says that, “as the Trayvon Martin case has taken twists and turns, it’s become clear to many legal experts that the Stand Your Ground concept has many inherent ambiguities, undermining faith in the justice system in the process.” As for the father in Texas, The Christian Science Monitor on MSNBC quoted James Harrington, director of the Texas Civil Rights Project in an interview with Foxnews.com saying, “Assuming it’s true that this guy was molesting the daughter … he would then have the right to defend her and hit him enough to have him stop. But you cannot summarily execute him, even though I can understand the anger he would have.”
He continued saying, “The question is: When does it move beyond self-defense?”Post Views: 228
