Drug War Judges:

“I thought this was a good job before I got it. I didn’t come here to put away poor people for low-level, nonviolent drug crimes, but that’s what the job amounts to. All you can do is bitch about it.”

“They make you do ungodly things in the drug war if you’re a judge.”

“The trouble is, I have to look the person in the eye at sentencing.”

“It used to be a defense lawyer’s skill was in convincing a judge and jury on the facts and the law. Now the skill in being a lawyer is who can run to the U.S. attorney’s office quicker and snitch. That’s what the law is — who can snitch best”

“I don’t give the prosecutors trouble. They know what a joke the drug war is.”

“The only people that don’t know what’s up are the policymakers in Washington.”
