Intersting yet sad article. A better approach would have been some undercover investigation, gather compelling evidence, do some research and then proceed with some sort of action..A 'raid' is a little over the top IMHO.

Classic example of law enforcement shooting first and asking questions later.

Alcohol laws in this nation are ridiculous and onerous.

I'm going to clarify your statement just slightly.

Alcohol laws in the state or "Commonwealth" of Pennsylvania are just plain insane.

I bet if you look into it the bar owners didn't vote for Fast Eddie in the last election...

You definitely seem to have it particularly bad, but they are ridiculous in almost every state to varying degrees.

Fair enough, I'll agree to that. As long as you aren't a Yankees fan...
