This country is getting bad. There is no seperation between criminal and non criminal activities other than what some dumb *ss polititian who wants to be important pushes through.

Have an open container in your car - go to jail.
Have a couple of grams of pot - go to jail.
Drive 15 mph over the limit - loose your license for 30 days. MANDITORY! in NC unless you get a lawyer.
Drive with suspended license - go to jail.
18 yo have sex with a 17 year old = sexual predator. 18 yo goes to a park after going to prison - back to prison.
Have 2 beers at a bar and drive home.....

And worse yet, the cop that pulls you over is 19, dumb as a head of cabbage and has an attitude. Respect the uniform?? not me. This is not the norm in other developed countries.

No law enforcement officer in this country should ever be elected. Sherriff should be an appointed position.

That is the lamest statement I have ever heard! It is the most Un-American thing I have heard in a while.

The conical would make a great pot still by simply adding some elements. The sheriff must know something about moonshine because the report mentioned the "bead". 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.
It's not that hard to get moonshine in the south if you know the right people.

No. It may be un-natural, but not un-American. What is un-American is a belief that any law that is passed by my elected political body is something I am going to abide by regardless of its lack of sensability, rationality, or morality.

Agreed. It's a good thing our founding fathers weren't legalists or authoritarians.

I also agree with all your other points. We need to focus on violent criminals and leave everyone else alone. Until real crime (i.e. the kind where there is a victim) drops to zero, I don't think we should be going out of our way to arrest and prosecute harmless individuals. That being said, if you openly disobey the law then expect consequences.

I can't even walk back from a bar anymore. I almost got arrested last semester for stumbling home by myself. Yeah, I was drunk, but I am a responsible individual and I was doing the right thing--not driving. Since I can't drive, I can't bike (so dumb) and apparently I can't even walk home, what am I supposed to do?
