"Using SWAT teams to serve warrants against peaceful people..."

There you go again. It is an insult to the dedicated and decent folks who risk their lives to take scumbags off the streets to compare them with 1930s NAZI storm troopers kicking in the doors of the Jews.

Any 12 year old kid knows just from watching TV that SWAT teams are used when the suspects to be arrested are known or suspected of being armed and dangerous, usually very dangerous.
Law enforcement comes a callin' prepared for the worst because of the known threat involved with drug dealers who are armed and very dangerous critters. They don't take chances with their own lives and they should not be required to. They are dealing with the worst that society and the drug cartels can produce.

"You must admit that the drug war machine has become evil."

Not unless I agree that the laws against certain drugs are inherently evil and immoral. I don't. They might be ineffectual, they might even be unjustly or unequally applied in certain cases, but the laws are not evil in their intent. The criminal justice system is far from perfect and I would even go so far as to say down right corrupt in many areas, but that is a whole other issue and tied to the human failure factor.

“The people who are part of the machine that has transformed the "land of the free" into the world's leading prison state need to be confronted with their crimes, violence, and inhumanity."

What machine is that, Hollywood and the ACLU? Cesar Chavez? The Beatles? The entire music industry? Who or what created the demand for the drugs in the first place? Every aspect of the war on drugs, for better or worse, has evolved from the fact that there was a certain percentage of society that abused and demanded these dangerous drugs. To ignore the danger that these drugs present to society would itself be guilt by omission.
