Below is a typical HP article on police/court activity in Benton Harbor. If you
regularly read bhbanco.org, you will have noticed the HP's use of hot button terms
(raid, drug trafficking, intent to deliver, drug house, two week investigations...) and the seriousness in reporting stories so small that most papers wouldn't bother. $200 worth of pot is tiny - less than a quarter of a cup. The cops ALWAYS take whatever money is lying around. BANCO gets reports about the disrespect with which residents are treated.
There is virtually no crime in BH except these supposed drug related activities.
Why would anyone behave in such a way as to attract ultra-scary cops into their homes?
(After this post, we may read of a new crime...) It's becoming clear that all "drug" stories could be the result of police drug planting. Also clear is that the style of reporting is designed to scare people literally out of town. Cop/sheriff quotas seem to be 2-3 BH drug arrests per week. If people aren't scared out of town, they'll be incarcerated through drug planting. There can be no barriers to building Whirlpool's Harbor Shores resort for the white and wealthy. These constant fear-instilling HP articles are published to make BH look like a town full of criminals. With this propaganda in place, the media can justify law enforcement action as good, and nobody will look back after HS is built. Those black "criminals" simply HAD to go!
There is a Berrien County group who collude in life-wrecking: Whirlpool execs., judges,prosecutors, defense attys., media, county admin., etc. They would do well to remember: Newton's Third Law - "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction." "There is no religion without love, and people may talk as much as they like about their religion, but if it does not teach them to be good and kind to other
humans, it is all a sham." -Anna Sewell, writer (1820-1878) "This country will
not be a permanently good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a
reasonably good place for all of us to live in." -Theodore Roosevelt, 26th US
President (1858-1919) "What we are doing to the forests of the world is but
a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another."
-Mohandas Gandhi (1869-1948)
It is a mystery how those in collusion can be so inhumanly cruel. This may become one
of America's most well-known tragedies. It is a complex, multi-level story which could make movies like Erin Brokovich and The Insider look like minor incidences.
The backdrop of greed, of course, being ever present.
Two adults, teenager arrested in drug raids
By Julie Swidwa H-P 2/28/09
Two adults and a teenager were arrested after raids that resulted from investigations into suspected drug trafficking at houses in Benton Harbor and Coloma.
The Berrien County Sheriff's Department Narcotics Unit, along with county road patrol, went to ********* in Benton Harbor around 8:15 a.m. Friday and found $150 worth of suspected marijuana and other evidence of drug trafficking, according to a sheriff's department news release.
Police arrested ***************, 24, of the ********** Street address for investigation on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and maintaining a drug house, both second offenses. Under civil forfeiture law, police seized $92. A 31-year-old woman in the house at the time was not charged. Two juveniles were also in the house, police said. They were turned over to family members.
Later Friday, at 10:10 a.m., county narcotics officers and road patrolmen went to ********** in Coloma where they reported finding $200 worth of suspected marijuana, miscellaneous drug paraphernalia and other evidence of drug trafficking.
Police said they arrested ****************, 26, of the ******** Street address for investigation on charges of possession of marijuana and maintaining a drug house. Police also arrested a 16-year-old boy for investigation on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and maintaining a drug house.
He was released to the custody of his mother and will be petitioned into juvenile court. ****** was taken to the Berrien County Jail. In both cases, police said they acted on warrants that resulted from investigations lasting two weeks.
