This quote from Nixon aide John Ehrlichman (in 1994) is from an April 2016 Dan Baum article in Harper's Magazine: Legalize It All. How to win the war on drugs. Quote: "The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did."

Good cops, bad cops, and drug war
There are plenty of good cops. Many of us have relatives who have been police officers. But Republicans block efforts to remove the bad cops, the violent cops, the racist cops.
Republicans need bad cops to implement Republican racism. Especially in the South. See the racist Republican "Southern Strategy":
Some Democrat states are permanently removing bad cops.
