The Lady Speaks

Say What??

Proving yet again that only one state could have produced a buffoon like George W. Bush, Texas is now conducting sting operations and arresting drunks….in bars.

Huh?

From Reuters:

Texas has begun sending undercover agents into bars to arrest drinkers for being drunk, a spokeswoman for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission said on Wednesday. 

The first sting operation was conducted recently in a Dallas suburb where agents infiltrated 36 bars and arrested 30 people for public intoxication, said the commission’s Carolyn Beck.

Being in a bar does not exempt one from the state laws against public drunkenness, Beck said.

Next thing you know, they’ll be arresting people in bedrooms for violating laws against public nudity.
