Good question. The 1% benefits from and pushes the Drug War.
They own/invest in:
Alcohol/Tobacco (Trump Vodka anyone? certainly not his alcoholic dead brother)
Drug testing facilities and technologies
MIC. They MIC is closely connected to the Drug War. Also, well known that the Drug War veterans and military share info on street war strategies. Program 1033? It goes deep.
Oh, and that Obama, the sellout who never did anything good was also responsible for the beginning evisceration of the 1033 Program, particularly after the police over-reach in Ferguson and elsewhere. With Sessions, it will be back to local/state police militarization on overdrive.
Like this officer explains (my translation in italics/parenths): "If cops are stripped of the safety equipment (over-hyped military weaponry, eavesdropping tech, and big wheely things that take out houses and other toys) and less lethal devices used for crowd control (so still kills you, but doesn't hurt so badly?) and other enforcement efforts (that covers everything else), the scene on the street (blacks in urban areas) can quickly become dangerous."
