According to all recent reports, police officers themselves indicate people were provided with drugs by law enforcement agents, think what happens in the medical world for one second and how a Dr.’s life could be ruined in a second with one faulty prescription….
After thinking about that. realize that both Hennepin county and the city of Richfield and Minneapolis where this all happened, have both refused to file criminal charges despite confirmation from law officers that they were giving people drugs with no medical supervision and letting them loose in the street afterwords.

hongpong.com — MINNEAPOLIS — NOV 12 2012 — Law enforcement officers under a state training program called Drug Recognition Evaluators encouraged people in downtown Minneapolis, including Occupy Minnesota protesters at Peavey Plaza and other vulnerable and houseless people to participate in alcohol and drug intoxication evaluations. After a 35-minute video “MK Occupy Minnesota” [produced by Occupy Minneapolis, Communities United Against Police Brutality, Rogue Media & Twin Cities Indymedia] was released documenting claims of several DRE participants they’d been given drugs and encouraged to take drugs, an officer from Hutchinson, MN, stepped forward to corroborate part of that story.
Mn Bureau of Criminal Apprehension under the Department of Public Safety, generated a 513-page investigative report described in Minnesota Public Radio & Star Tribune stories, but not available publicly in full until now, adding another chunk to this incomplete story from one of the many gray areas in the war on drugs & the suppression of Occupy protesters.
