BREAKING: Stupidest police action in recent memory has been halted
I speak of course, of Texas' Alcoholic Beverage Commission sending undercover agents into bars to arrest drunks. This is true. They called it Operation Last Call. Agents went undercover into bars, located people who looked drunk, and arrested them for public intoxication. I hope readers of this space will understand the rampant stupidity and jack-booted-fascist mentality of this program, so I won't have to spout off much of an opinion.
After a massive blowback against this operation, Commission spokeswoman Carolyn Beck announced the "temporary" suspension of the program, saying, "We understand that everything has room for improvement, this included." She said that most of those arrested were "dangerously drunk" and "might have tried to drive if TABC agents hadn't busted them."
Excuse me, "might" have tried to drive? If we could be arrested for what we "might" do, wouldn't every damn one of us be in jail by now?
Morons. Is it any wonder why the rest of the country refers to Texas as "Our most irritating state?"
Jack Daniels -- g'head and drink it.
