The Last Straw – Really California?

One of my principal concerns about the future of American law enforcement is how political decisions affect the nation’s patrol officers, especially the left’s penchant for passing soft-tyranny laws that can have hard-tyranny consequences. In particular, my concern is for those expected to enforce the left’s political laws: the cops.

It seems the left never disappoints when you need an example of political overreach to illustrate a point. Consider this article posted at Reason.com: “California Considers $1,000 Fine for Waiters Offering Unsolicited Plastic Straws” (yes, rub your eyes, put on some reading glasses, or put in some eye drops, but it won’t change. You read that correctly).
