“Proponents of the war on drugs have three more deaths to add to their drug-war ledger. A few days ago, two Americans, Shaeed Woodard and Zindell Brown, were killed by members of a drug cartel while visiting Matamoros, Mexico. According to, ‘Investigators believe the Americans were targeted by a Mexican cartel that likely mistook them for Haitian drug smugglers.’ A Mexican bystander was also killed in the crossfire. Yes, the direct cause of their killing was the drug cartel. But the fact is that it is the drug war itself that is the indirect cause of their killing. With no drug war, there would be no drug cartels. No drug cartels would mean that Woodard and Brown and that Mexican bystander would still be alive today.” (03/08/23)
