Another Trio of Drug War Deaths

by Phillip Smith

Colorado and Washington may have legalized marijuana, but the drug war continues apace. We here record three more deaths in the name of drug prohibition. The three who died in separate incidents become the 57th, 58th, and 59th persons to die in US domestic drug law enforcement operations so far this year.

In Cartersville, Georgia, an as yet unidentified 66-year-old woman was shot and killed in her home by drug task force members executing a search warrant there, according to local press reports. Police said members of the Bartow-Cartersville Drug Task Force were executing the search warrant after dusk Thursday evening when they encountered an "armed assailant" and opened fire.

A member of the woman's family said police entered with a "no-knock" warrant, meaning they were allowed to legally burst into the home without notifying the residents beforehand.

Police said the two shooters have been placed on administrative leave pending an inquiry by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

"That was my aunt and she has never ever hurt anyone," wrote someone identifying herself as Tina Bunn in the comments section of the article linked to above. "She had a heart like no one I ever seen, but her being shot by cops, I don't even know what to say, but what is our world coming to today? You will be so missed and we will think about you every day. I hope your afterlife is what you thought it would be, and say hi to all our family that left before you, and one day we will all be back together. RIP and God be with us to help us with this pain of saying good bye."

"This was a good woman, had a heart of gold that lived alone with her two dogs!" added a commenter identified only as Brandon. "She didn't deserve to be shot down like that! She had to be scared and couldn't have known what was going on! I hope the police officers that pulled the triggers feel real good and powerful about what they did! We will always love and miss you, Miss Jean! RIP."

In Tucson, Arizona, Vladimir Cardenas, 23, was shot and killed by a Pima County deputy sheriff during a traffic stop Friday as he traveled with drugs and weapons in his car, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department press release. Police said a deputy pulled over Cardenas' vehicle in north Tucson, and while the two men talked, Cardenas pointed a gun at the deputy, who then shot him. He died soon after at a local hospital.

The deputy who shot Cardenas was identified as Nicholas Norris. He has been placed on routine administrative leave while the shooting is probed.

As part of the investigation conducted at the scene Friday night, detectives with the Sheriff's Criminal Investigation Division obtained a search warrant for Cardenas' vehicle. They found different types of drugs, drug paraphernalia, and a variety of weapons. Cardenas was also wanted on a misdemeanor warrant from Tucson.

In Los Cruces, New Mexico, a 57-year-old man died August 5 after trying to swallow a bag of cocaine when he was arrested late on August 2, according to the Associated Press. The cause of death wasn't reported until earlier this month, but Hermilo Salcedo had been arrested on drug trafficking charges, and officers at the Dona Ana County jail were conducting a full-body search when they found a bag of cocaine. Salcedo reportedly tried to swallow the bag, choked, and lost consciousness. According to the autopsy report, he then went into cardiac arrest. Emergency personnel dislodged the plastic bag after 20 minutes and tried to resuscitate him, but "there were no signs of brain activity."

2469 Why no Booby traps? Imagine SWAT lining up on the Porch of someones house only to suddenly discover they are all 15 feet in the air in a Cage that they thought was the Porch. Get Creative. Kill Lists? Works both ways, Big Brother Counterfiet-Funded Murdering Thugs.
What do these highly paid Pigs do with their Money, anyways? My guess, lounging in a Hot Tub masterbating to visions of cowering Women and Kids. Fooooooom, Times up, Last Call for a little civility, Low-Life Bolsheviks.
