Memorable Moments in Law Enforcement
Article from Reuters (h/t Instapundit):
The attorneys general of Utah and Arizona said in separate interviews they had no intention of prosecuting polygamists unless they commit other crimes such as taking underage brides -- a practice authorities said was rampant in a Utah-Arizona border community run by Warren Jeffs before his arrest in August."We are not going to go out there and persecute people for their beliefs," said Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard
How about persecuting people for breaking the law?
UPDATED: An e-mailer writes:
"I believe Goddard was misquoted, it was clear from the context that what he actually said was 'We are not going to go out there and persecute people for beliefs that I don't object to... scr*w the law.' If that's not what he actually said, that is sure what he meant"
"I think he meant to say 'We are not going to go out there and persecute people for beliefs... unless you're also gouging on gas prices or illegally sell cold medicine. Then I'll see you in hell"
