4:36 am
in the middle of a book, despite having proper accreditation, we were soon detained by the state security service. we were accused of filming classified subjects and possibly for working for the extremists, specifically the taliban. yes, we do. most left for the main camera was confiscated, but luckily they didn't see the 2nd. we're going to look it up and get us in a minimum of results,
4:37 am
even more money. in the end, we weren't taken to a police station and we refuse to pay back sage. we were forced to delete the material. we filmed on the main camera and then they let us go to the phone and i couldn't get that said, i don't know. luckiest time ago. i didn't look back either come interview them or not, but they don't go that it's one of the luckily that was our only brush with the law as we later discovered, one of the police generals, remember the words should've been very well. that means soviet the police immediately let us go with them on a raid. the question is, what is the phone ship? phillips in

4:39 am
put that on the table? the police are well aware of all the places where locals can buy drugs. most of the time they're sold from inside expensive houses secured behind high walls. no one can get in without a warrant, but the minute word gets out that a rate has been planned, information seep through to the drug dealers themselves, making it impossible to catch them read and it does not want to bring him, i guess issue with him. i was gonna redo,
4:40 am

4:41 am
ever used a special equipment that was purchased recently with us money than laura customs to the old school methods. looking for stashes in the more unlikely locations and following their instincts, one of the most surprising weapons against drugs we found was what they call the veracity test. they presume that a real help at heart will give him away. you simply lay your hand on the suspects chest and feel his pulse. we were a little skeptical at 1st enough for the moments later, the officers did find a stash of sheesh in his shoes. off before the
4:42 am
in a little over and in that same veracity to us through a shadow of a one man who driven his car to couple from july about in the east of the country around 1 o'clock that could be out of pocket. and my father picked out for something to them without a chance to them with the last word that she was thinking that this is commonly used trig for trafficking drugs. the game showed that the tank was full, but it was actually no gas at all. in its place, a 21 kilo stash of opium puppies. there is by no means
4:43 am
a large quantity by today's standards. as staggering, 50 tons of opium and heroine confiscated at this check point alone each year. hefty prices are put on the heads of the most zealous police officers found my way to shaft miller. definition charge is that it never goes on us on this of others. above the, by the supposed to tell on the psyche, hattrick drugs are essential for millions of patients or are they,
4:44 am
they want that pill that the whole will take care of their problem thoroughly and rapidly in the short term they really work. the problem is, in the long term, they're mostly disastrous. suddenly stopping a drug can cause withdrawal symptoms more serious than the condition that was meant to treat instead of the beneficial effects of these different medicines ending up to something wonderful. very often they're harmful effects and up to something terrible can bill so of all ills. or are we trying to mitigate life itself? i just think i was like i was just scared scare a little girl of 24. and like, didn't have to be so complicated. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy going from station let it be an arms race is on often very dramatic development. only
4:45 am
personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical of time. time to sit down and talk i the next morning and we'll back to police the place where drug use his get together. this time were accompanied by the doctors who have agreed to admit site, yet to the hospital. not coming up. we still need to do what he was saying was nowhere to be found. his phone number was blocked and the when no police to guard at this time. we were just about ready to leave empty handed when 5

4:59 am
jimmy is a dangerous is the lie. the sovereignty of the countries, the exceptionalism that america uses and its international war planning is one of the greatest threats to the populations of different nations. if nato were disbanded, shareholders in the united states and elsewhere in large companies would lose millions and millions or is business and business is good. and that is the reality of what we're facing, which is fashion. they have paper well they have no bitcoin as a matter of fact, they shut their bitcoin mining down. not sense. they burg their treasure fleet 500 years ago under the main dynasty as a country made such a bone headed and stupid mistake. ah
