FF 194 – Iraq War Veteran turned Felon Sounds the Alarm on the War Machine
On today’s episode of Felony Friday Matt Freeman joins John to share how he went from serving on the front lines in Iraq to being addicted to drugs and eventually convicted of drug trafficking.
Matt is an Iraq war veteran, who was discharged for drug use. He was later arrested for “Trafficking in Dangerous Drugs”, the result of being the target of multiple controlled buys by a former friend. He was sentenced to 3 years in prison, serving the last 6 months in a halfway house. After his release, Matt taught himself how to repair cars in order to make himself marketable and has been working in the field ever since.
Matt hosts a podcast called The Statist Quo, which seeks to fill in the blanks left by the mainstream media on war and military matters, as well as exploring history, current events, politics and economics from a libertarian perspective.
