Police Drug Citizens for Evaluation

According to the DRE (Drug Recognition Expert) website http://www.decp.org/  "IACP is the "credentialing" body and does not certify DREs. The "certification" is done by the respective State Coordinator who signs off on the DRE candidate. The candidate’s paperwork is forwarded to IACP who assigns the DRE a number, enters the DRE into the IACP database and issues the DRE a certification card... The academic training is conducted utilizing creative, participant-centered teaching techniques."

The connection between the evaluation and the Occupy Movement starts at about the 30 minute mark on the video.  Personally, I think this is more about law enforcement drugging citizens than about them spying on Occupiers, but there does seem to be a bit of a duel purpose in the program.

Police Drugging Occupy Protesters


May 2, 2012

Infowars Editor’s note: This video needs to go viral. It provides more evidence that the war on drugs is a criminal enterprise. It also shows how the cops are responsible for the drug problem in Minnesota and are using tax payer money to get young people high on illegal drugs. It is very interesting that the police are conducting their DRE op in Peavey Plaza where OWS people are active. After the OWS launched their Spring offensive, the feds responded by arranging a bogus terror plot on a Cleveland Bridge and have also apparently mailed themselves white powder to drum up terrorism fears. Both incidents have been pinned on the OWS movement by the establishment media. 

The following video was posted by HongPong on Youtube.



Video documentation by local activists and independent media shows that police officers and county deputies from across Minnesota have been picking up young people near Peavey Plaza for a training program to recognize drug-impaired drivers. Multiple participants say officers gave them illicit drugs and provided other incentives to take the drugs. The Occupy movement, present at Peavey Plaza since April 7th, appears to be targeted as impaired people are dropped off at the Plaza, and others say they’ve been rewarded for offering to snitch on the movement.


Local independent media activists and members of Communities United Against Police Brutality began investigating police conduct around the Plaza after witnessing police dropping off impaired people at the plaza and hearing rumors that they were offering people drugs.  We videotaped police conduct and interviewed participants, learning some very disturbing information about the DRE program.

Officers stated on record the DRE program, run by the Minnesota State Patrol, has no Institutional Review Board or independent oversight. They agreed no ambulances or EMTs were on site at the Richfield MnDOT facility near the airport where most subjects were taken. Multiple times, participants left Peavey Plaza sober, returned intoxicated, and said they’d been given free drugs by law enforcement. We documented on more than one occasion, someone being told they were sober by one officer, and then picked up by a different officer, and returning intoxicated.

 This is surreal-I can't wrap my mind around how foul this is. This is clearly some kind of dark machination designed to either entrap people, discredit Occupy or create some kind of fake database of usage to justify some future action or influence public opinion....Dang It gave me a headache
