“Damned from Memory”: When the Drug War Turns on its Own

(excerpt)

John McLaughlin, known to his friends as “Sparky,” was a True Believer in the War on Drugs. He was convinced that his work as an agent of the Pennsylvania Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement (BNI) was protecting innocent people from opportunists and thugs who prey on the weak.

He eventually came to the sorrowful realization that the most ruthless elements involved in the drug trade aren’t found in Latin America or blighted urban neighborhoods, but in well-appointed offices in Washington, D.C. and Langley, Virginia. McLaughlin also came to understand, from first-hand experience, that the Drug War has created an all-encompassing police state that targets not only the innocent public, but also law enforcement officers who become irritants to government-protected criminal cliques.

*Chicken Feed

Chicken feed – a trifling amount of money…..

That’s what the $1.92 billion fine is that HSBC, one of the world’s largest banks, is paying to get rid of accusations that it laundered billions of dollars for drug cartels and in the illegal sanctions racket.

Exactly how many billions they laundered will remain a mystery. The laundry fees don’t come cheap either.

No indictments, no prosecutions, just a promise to keep their ‘noses clean’ in exchange for what is being called eluding a possible death sentence for the bank.

The US Treasury and the Federal Reserve take their cut and everyone goes home happy. Love of criminal money does sometimes require saying you are sorry and then it’s back to scheming on how to avoid this next time.
