Magbie Experiences Respiratory Distress at [Correctional Treatment Facility] September 24.

"[District Fire and Emergency Medical Services] paramedics arrived at approximately 9 a.m. During an interview, one stated that they found Magbie 'unconscious, very sweaty, and sitting at a 45-degree angle in his wheelchair.' His diaper was saturated with 'very dark' urine and his catheter drainage bag was filled with 'tea-colored urine.' One of the paramedics stated . . . that it appeared that 'Magbie had not been cleaned for several days.' His pupils were fixed and dilated. Paramedics could not get Magbie to respond verbally to a 'pain stick' or to ammonia.

Both paramedics stated that the CTF physician they consulted upon arrival informed them that Magbie probably had been in this state for several hours before being noticed. . . . They assessed his vital signs as unstable and determined that he needed to be transported to the hospital immediately. . . . The paramedics stated that they were delayed approximately 20-30 minutes because CTF officials would not let them leave before transport paperwork had been completed and Magbie's blood sugar level had been taken. [CTF physicians denied this when interviewed.]"


While the drug warriors and their supporters may attempt to justify these types of deaths as a consequence of breaking the law, there is no denying that Magpie did not deserve to die for his alleged crime. He was put in harms way, and his death is the shedding of innocent blood,(http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs%206:16-19;&version;=31). Is Is their blood on your hands?

It is easy to become outraged at the atrocities of of those behind a seemingly untouchable criminal justice system. And while they may deserve anger and vengeance, we are called to-

* Forgiveness - What Jesus Did and What He Would Do
"Father forgive them for they know not what they do..."


* Prayer - The Warrior's Power
"...pray for those who mistreat you..."

* Act - Faith Without Works Is Dead
"What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds?"

 US Operations in Cambodia Not Nixon's Only Cover Up

Nixon ordered Cambodia cover-up

He ordered the deception at a meeting of his top military and national security aides in 1970, a month after admitting publicly to a secret war.

"Publicly, we say one thing - actually, we do another," the president said in a memo after the meeting.

The Report of the National Commission on Marihuana and Drug Abuse
Marihuana: A Signal of Misunderstanding

Commissioned by President Richard M. Nixon, March, 1972

The recommendations in this report were endorsed by (among others) the American Medical Association, the American Bar Association, The American Association for Public Health, the National Education Association, and the National Council of Churches and covered up by the Nixon administration

Nixon Tapes Reveal Twisted Roots Of Marijuana Prohibition

One of Nixon's comments concerning marijuana -

Jews and marijuana: "I see another thing in the news summary this morning about it. That's a funny thing, every one of the bastards that are out for legalizing marijuana is Jewish. What the Christ is the matter with the Jews, Bob, what is the matter with them? I suppose it's because most of them are psychiatrists . . ."
