Immigrants Without IDs Buying Beer Illegally.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Bootlegging might be making a comeback in Tennessee.

Sheriff Esco Jarnagin in East Tennessee's Hamblen County blames a growing immigrant population and a state law that requires everyone -- no matter how old -- to be carded when buying beer.

laws which are selectively applied are not laws, but tools of control. the people should
govern. our leaders are but trusted servants they should not govern.

Having lived in that neck of the woods I can assure you that these laws are NOT selectively applied, although by the looks of this article the laws ARE selectively enforced. Any white or black person busted for bootlegging would be looking at 5 times the fine and 6 months in the county jail.

I wonder if illegal immigrants can get away with buying beer with an I.D from their birth country.
