Cracking down on home poker games
Good to see San Mateo County police so hard at work:
Police in San Mateo County, California apparently first spent months investigating the small-stakes poker game. From this firsthand account, it looks like a couple of the officers were playing regularly for several weeks before sending in the SWAT team, guns drawn, last week.
It’s a $20 – $50 game. Sebastian asks:
Can someone explain to me why this is a crime?
Depends. In some places, it’s a crime because you’re avoiding taxes and registration. In other places, it’s because you’re too stupid and untrustworthy to decide how to waste your money.
