Reply To: Update on Zach Anderson: Judge shows no mercy at all

We see from this case ONE of the reason s why our nation holds a 20,000,000,000,000 $ debt.

That we spend government tax dollars chasing him around for doing what young men naturally do is pitiful. That is what a society gets for permitting the federal entities into the day to day lives of individuals. Some will make the counter argument that it be the proper jurisdiction of States to do so. Sure the young man seeks relief from his state probation in the case, but that case evolved from coercive federal agencies using Byrne grants as leverage to further monitoring of those with certain moral laws.

The point is who decides what counts as “decent” and what counts as “deviant”? Let us hope its not the federal government deciding for individuals.
