"Illicit drug use is a form of domestic terrorism to some extent," Says Massachusetts Police Chief (Reason)
Tuesday September 18th, 2012
In an interview with the Patch.com affiliate for Wilmington, Massachusetts, Wilmington Police Chief Michael Begonis claims that illicit drug use is a form of terrorism:
“Illicit drug use is a form of domestic terrorism to some extent,” said Wilmington Police Chief Michael Begonis. “It is preying on folks who are more susceptible and who need a better life. And it’s something that we need to deal with head on.”
While the rest of the city officials interviewed in the story pay lip service to the decaying stereotype of drug user as victim, Begonis has clearly upped the ante.
