How is a war on crime, a war against poor people? I'm having trouble understanding the question! That's like saying a war on welfare, is a war against working stiffs? Huh? Now, if you say that a war on poor people is a crime, or a war against working stiffs is welfare, it starts to make a little sense.
Either way, the only war I see on a regular basis that seems to be a war against its own people, is the so-called "war on drugs." Now that is one corrupt war, especially since one of the biggest drug problems is in the "prescription drug" industry, to say the least.
I don't think I answered your question exactly, but that was one jumbled up query, so I only responded accordingly, if that makes any sense to ya... What's next, the war on terrorism is really a war against civil rights? Or, a war against illegal immigrants is a war against legal citizens? :/
