Does too much home brew lead to poor taste and inappropriate responses? You decide.

Kade, the individual in question, sent the following to one of the Alabama homebrewers mailing lists via e-mail earlier this week:

Quote:
"Well they finally filed charges, and as I expected for "Alcohol Distill
(F) 028-004-024" as specified in the warrant. Which covers any alcoholic
beverages produced whether distilled or not.
Section 28-4-24
<http://alisondb.legislature.state.al.us/acas/CodeOfAlabama/1975/28-4-...>
*Distillation or manufacture of prohibited liquors and beverages.*

Distillation or manufacture of prohibited liquors and beverages.

Any person, firm or corporation who shall, within this state, distill,
make or manufacture any alcoholic, spirituous, malted or mixed liquors
or beverages, any part of which is alcohol, shall be guilty of a felony
and, upon conviction thereof, shall be punished by imprisonment at hard
labor in the penitentiary for not less than one year nor longer than
five years, such imprisonment to be fixed within these limits by the court.

/(Acts 1919, No. 7, p. 6; Code 1923, �4627; Code 1940, T. 29,
�103.)/

I turned myself in yesterday, and luckily without any hassle. Bond was
set at $5000, and made bail just after processing with a property bond.
The court date is set for the 6th of October. So I can at least go to my
house and clean up the aftermath, and replace my front door.
So with the charges filed as they are, it's maybe best to not involve
the homebrewing associations. However, I'd be willing to except help on
a personal basis if anyone so desires."
One of his associates said that if anyone would like to contribute to Kade's legal defense, you may PayPal him at mountainman419@yahoo.com. All excess funds will be donated towards legalizing homebrewing in Alabama.

I read all 13 pages now and don't you think that if there was a still it would have been in the picture?(with the scopes of course)

If you really really think about it,a water distiller is almost like a modern day coffee pot,without a filter pretty much the same concept.

It's an odd law. How many other things are illegal only when you make it yourself?

I respect the brewer for being a Vet but even so, the law is the last word when it comes to what we can and cannot do. Firearm found at an illegal site, even though legal, always adds to the alleged crime. I think he'll be learnig how to do stuff worse that making beer at home for the next few months, if he doesn't get probation.
With all due respect...

F**(&*() that.

"The firearm found at an illegal site, even though legal, always adds to the alleged crime"?????????? Are you kidding me????????? I don't see any bodies in the fridge. So why don't you educate me as to exactly how the possession of firearms (a constitutional RIGHT) makes his crimes any worse????

The fact that the sherriff added the scopes/firearms in only shows what a POS he is trying to make a war veteran who fought for your freedom look like a mexican drug runner.

Absolutely disgusting.
