Turning 12-Year-Olds Into Drug Dealers | The War on Drugs 

Näkymät 496 t.

For the past decade, the UK has been horrified by the phenomenon of County Lines - big city criminal groups using kids as young as 12 to take over the drug supply of smaller towns and villages.
It’s taken years for the police to even begin to understand that many of these children are groomed and exploited, rather than just arresting them as dealers. We show how county lines are a direct product of the War on Drugs itself.
In The War On Drugs Show, we examine the social implications of prohibition worldwide.

Any attempt to shut down the trade in drugs such as heroin,
cocaine, ecstasy, ketamine or weed invariably sets off a chain of events that just makes things worse, leaving a trail of death, illness, violence, slavery, addiction, crime and inequality across the globe. Everyone loses - except, in a weird kind of way, the drugs themselves.

@gdpm this law will change nothing, China and Islamic country's are the suppliers themselves even though they have tough law!! The problem are the politician themselves!! Open your eyes!! Poor people and people without power can't make drugs come to the country, you must be powerful to do that, so open your mind. It's always innocent who suffer, the real culprit are walking outside freely without any suspicions.

0:01 with the music that been used and the way the police stood (wasn't that they suppose to stack up at the door?) and the way they announce themself (Usually police use shout in my country), I thought they were entering a pub. And poor cameraman, you are not supposed to stand at the window when a police raid is being conducted. What if the suspect starts shooting at you?

Yeah and the same people who kidnaps kids is funded by the government. The fact that weed is illegal means that kids are kidnapped to sell it and it gives people who do the kidnapping money. If weed was legal then everyone could just grow their own and not need drug cartels or gangs unless your some fucking nitty and eat Xanax for breakfast and use cocaine like sugar.

The real problem for drug dealers is not the police. If they're arrested they go to jail for a couple of years and there are sorts that will fill in for those "positions." Their real problem is rival drug dealers.

Good vid, but 1. there is not a "lack of opportunity" in big cities in the UK, there is plenty of work, people make choices. 2. The police are not "extemely good at arresting drug dealers", the police are next to useless as highlighted by the female cops in the vid rushing around playing dress up. UK police needs to be urgently reformed to fight crime instead of being a woke employment agency.

The police are just to busy beating protesters or murduring women or handing out speeding fines or covering up pedophilia or just being dumb lazy and very racist, using children and the Internet means crime is easy, very easy and extremely profitable, the police in the UK are completely useless and watching them fumbling at each and every turn always brings a smile to my face.

As a person who grew up in some rough neighbourhoods, I’ll tell you the main reason kids do this. Money. Kids that age want to make there own money. They want to have money like the other kids who’s parents can buy them everything. These kids are financially neglected. How many times at school would you see a kid who never goes in the store to even buy sweets. They end up stealing. Iv been in many trap houses and Iv seen kids from middle class families come and cry because there father beats him and neglects his family. The kid is forced to go to the only place he can make money to support himself and his mom. Even just the normal stuff, these days you just have to have money. The way I think is the best way to solve it is to allow younger people to work. Even if it’s low paying. Trust me so many would go and do it. I know kids who are running around selling drugs all day and maximum they get is £10. Sounds stupid but £10 in his mind is a £1000. Obviously, there’s a thin line between unfair child labour. But I think kids should be able to work. Iv been working since I was 12. They are capable. So many children I see ruined because of this issue. I know Im not the best person in the world, Iv been in trap houses but what do I tell these kids. Get a job ? They will say where can I work? And they would be desperate for money. People think that drug dealers abuse the kids. They show them more love and support and most pay fairly. Kids are not stupid. Well atleast in most cases.

in a nutshell if you arrest a dealer then two more would pop up as long as there is a demand someone would be wanting to make a profit out of it. instead take down the market legalize it and regulate it. think is this war on drugs or war on people?

In Saudi Arabia, there is no public sale except of Ethiopian nationality. I do not know where their country is, but they are only those who sell in public, but not in the street, but in hidden places, and in the neighborhood they sell from the neighborhood's residents very secretly because here is forbidden and its danger is considered so that the law does not have marijuana, lsd and ecstasy but hashish Black and breath pills and arc pills, their name for their effect is much less than ecstasy, and there is alum, but very expensive. We say America is crazy about selling these things.

Just legalize every thing. This is the only option to get rid of the blackmarket. Because where a request is there is also a supplier. Simpel market economy. Also how many Billions get spend every year for the war on drugs is just ridiculous. In germany was estimated about€ wouldn't every year (including savings form Police and all the bureaucracy)! Even heroin shoud be legal maybe connected with a 1h visit corse by your doctor and you have to renew itafter a year or 2. So you learn how to be responsible when using a substance. Also the user count wouldn't rise, good example cannabis in Canada. Also users would get clean stuff there for relieve healthcare.
