DEA Agent Told To 'Target The Black Communities — Don't Enforce Drug Laws in White Areas' (Video)

I said, "Look, we got all of our drug and gun interdiction task forces in all the urban areas. Miami, Seattle, Washington.  But they were all urban areas we were focusing on." I said, "Don't they use drugs in Potomac, Maryland? Don't they use them in Silver Spring or other maybe more affluent locations?" He said, "Yes Fogg. As a matter of fact, they use them probably more.  They got the better stuff. But if we go out there and start to lock those folks up, throw flash bangs [grenades] in their homes, run through their houses, do all of the things we do in our enforcement operations do you know what will happen? We will get a phone call and they will shut our operations down. And there goes your overtime...  Let's just go to the weakest link and get our numbers up."—Matthew Fogg
