Former Seattle Police Chief's Book Touts Decrim
That's according to an interview in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
Ever since San Diego, Stamper has lamented the miserable failure of the so-called war on drugs and the need for decriminalization. In the book, he says he gets specific about how the obscene profits of illegal drugs make our current approach impossible.
For now, Stamper will say only that he talks to officials who are afraid if they support decriminalization they'll lose elections or the Bush administration will withhold funds.
The book, "Breaking Rank: A Top Cop's Street-Smart Approach to Making America a Safe Place -- for Everyone," is scheduled to be published in June.
