CALIFORNIA WOMAN PROSECUTED FOR BAKING WITHOUT GOVERNMENT PERMISSION
Steven Greenhut, a senior fellow with the R Street Institute, says governments have more important things to do than prosecute people for making food.
“Prosecutors and police have better things to do than conduct undercover stings such as these, especially in communities, such as Stockton, that have serious crime problems,” Greenhut said. “A few years ago, police unions in that city featured billboards warning about the dangers of the city, and their lack of resources to combat violent crime, yet officials there choose to use their scarce resources this way. That’s foolish.
