Is there anything worse than a snitch lurking in the shadows, silently waiting to tattle on the things that they deemed wrong, or worse, being paid to catch the offender and slap down a fine that’s so outrageously high they probably think, “That’ll teach ’em!”
It won’t. All it will do is make people angry and write letters to the editor about the quirky state liquor laws and their “Keystone Cop” enforcers. And stay home and drink.
People who sell alcohol are not criminals. Most are just hard-working folks. When you treat law-abiding citizens like criminals in their own backyard, you’re not better than that nosy, bitter, next-door neighbor always watching you, hoping to catch you doing something they feel is wrong. Oh, like Gayle Ruzicka, maybe.
