Trooper Edward M. Toatley's death was tragic and senseless
("Undercover trooper from Md. is killed," Nov. 1). He is yet another
casualty in the war on drugs.

When will the people of this country realize that this war is as
unwinnable as the prohibition of alcohol?

How many more innocent people must die before it ends?

The war on drugs is a war on people.
