In the land of the free, if you are in possession of an arbitrary substance deemed illegal by the state, police will claim the legal authority to kidnap, cage, beat, and/or kill you. This scenario plays out like a broken record in towns across America, every minute of every day. Despite police force and violence proving to be an utter failure at preventing and deterring drug use, the state, like a deranged maniac, continues to wage this futile war on drugs.

A wise person once said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. If we are to hold this definition true, the state needs to see a doctor — and soon.

The most recent instance of this insanity comes from Englewood, Illinois in which police found a man with some pills people take that make them feel good, ecstasy. For being in possession of those pills, police claimed the legal right to assault and kidnap Mr. Jermain Milan. And, as the dramatic cell phone footage shows, assault and kidnap him they did.

Despite the state’s vicious war on drugs, over 17 million Americans have reported using ecstasy. Despite this massive number of users proving the ineffective nature of using police force to prevent drug use, police will still ruin your life over it. Sadly, that’s exactly what they did with Jermain Milan.

“[Jermaine] was minding his own business and they just came at him, you know?” Juwahn, Milan’s brother, told NBC Chicago.

According to NBC Chicago, family members shared the video, which they said was taken around 7:30 p.m. on Monday in the city’s West Englewood neighborhood. In the video, 34-year-old Jermaine Milan can be seen on the ground with a white plainclothes police officer straddling him. The officer repeatedly strikes Milan in the head while yelling, “Spit it out.” It is not quite clear what “it” is, according to the news station.
