I think we can all agree that the world is a safer place now. The city of Tulare is making a sweep of that big bad menace to society: threatening owners of so-called "gambling" devices with arrest. Of course they aren't Vegas style "Megabux" slot machines or anything, but still, a possible fifty-cents or maybe even twenty dollar "win"? We absolutely can't stand for that.

This is definitely a prudent use of limited resources. I mean after all, minor annoyances like stabbings, burglaries, assaults, shootings, and thefts are not only acceptable here, but run the risk of an officer getting injured or killed if, heaven forbid, the police waste their time trying to curtail those crimes. And we simply can't afford that. After all, if an officer is out of commission, how will we be able to afford more crime fighters going after what REALLY counts like running speed traps, citing 10 year old kids for running lemonade stands, and ticketing those reckless motorists for making a lane change without signaling?

Kudos to Tulare Police. Also, I think that Madoff was simply misunderstood.

Tell me again what the difference between a gangster and a police officer is? I'm again having a harder and harder time telling them apart aside from the clothing and vehicles. At least if a gang banger robs you, he's honest about what he's doing. He won't try and give you some BS story about how he's really doing you a favor by "protecting you from yourself" or "upholding the law" (we all know that only SOME laws-the ones that are easy to "enforce" and bring in revenue are adhered to.)
