Of Michael Phelps' recent marijuana fiasco, the Richland County sheriff's office has said,
"We're not releasing any additional information. We are investigating, and if we determine that illegal activity has occurred, we will bring charges."
Before you bring charges, answer me this: Who in the "F" was hurt? No one? Nobody was deprived of life, liberty, or property?
Then don't press charges, assholes. I don't care what the law says, it's wrong if it punishes victimless acts.
If you disagree with my position, then you must also disagree with the men and women of the underground railroad who violated federal laws in order to rescue men, women, and children from the horrors of slavery.
Seriously, look at the freaking law. If you assisted in the escape of a slave, then you were in violation of federal law. The penalty became even more severe after Henry Clay's Compromise of 1850.
Just enforce the law blindly, is that what you dare to advocate?
