Letters to the editor for March 19, 2013

Sick of government intrusion

To the Editor:

Here we go. Over extend your allotted resources. Blame it on a high school student. Then use nonexistent resources to hire underage kids and induce them to enter honest businesses to trick them into something illegal so you can fine them tell their eyes cross?

Webster’s: Entrapment. County: ‘Saving lives’. No. You’re not. You’re making money. Pick a problem that can’t and never will be solved and use it to “make money.”

I doubt it but I can only hope that the “student” learns the difference between “spirit” and “letter” of law. If there is a legitimate problem, fix it. Otherwise, it’s only a veiled excuse.  

Perhaps it’s “government” that’s driving people to drink.

Paul Stovall
