Matthew believes that drug prohibition is an immoral tool used by the United States' prison industrial complex to maintain the largest per capita rate of incarcerations in the world. Matthew Fogg is also a member of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. We also asked Mr. Fogg his views on the Trayvon Martin case and how black people who stand their ground in self defense are prosecuted and not granted immunity under the law. Cases like Marissa Alexander and John O'Neil.
In recent drug war news, President Obama was taken to task on drug prohibition policy by leaders in South America. According to reports, "Pressures that have been building for a decade or more have only intensified in recent months, with Latin American leaders including Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, and even Mexican President Felipe Calderon calling for a frank and open discussion of alternatives to US-style war on drugs."

The pages URL is even hateful to a big segment to the Facebook community, “https://www.facebook.com/deadblacksmakemehappy”
A poll on the page asks which is more fun, “Shooting” or “Stabing blacks”. Kofi Brinkley will share the email response he got back from Facebook staff concerning the racist Facebook page.
