The Indianapolis Star spent eight months investigating the way police, prosecutors and politicians wage the war on drugs in Marion County. More than 10,500 adult drug-related arrests from 1994 and 1995 were examined and electronically mapped by location to determine where police were making the most apprehensions. The drug arrests were also compared to a database of court case dispositions to determine how each arrest charge was dealt with judicially. The analysis showed that Marion County anti-drug tactics have put thousands behind bars, mostly black men. Yet none of these strategies has halted the spread of drug use. (October 6 - 11, 1996)
