Reefer madness, on video

Posted By on Fri, May 7, 2010 at 9:33 AM

In February, a Columbia, Missouri SWAT team kicked down the door of 25-year-old Jonathan Whitworth under the suspicion that the resident was "harboring a large amount of marijuana" and arrested him in front of his wife and 7-year-old. After shooting and killing the family's pit bull during entry, the police shot and wounded their corgi, says a Columbia Daily Tribune story.


The story is old. What's new is a video showing the home entry, including the sounds of the animals being shot multiple times, and Whitworth's wife comforting their 7-year-old as the SWAT team continues throughout the house. For their trouble, what did the police find?

Police discovered a grinder, a pipe and a small amount of marijuana.

Though not an MMJ issue, it's still hard to understand how even just the possession of marijuana is worth such force.
