WAR ON KRISPY KREME …
Let’s get something straight up front: Krispy Kreme doughnuts are friggin’ delicious. If you don’t like them, there’s probably something seriously wrong with you.
Daniel Rushing of Orlando, Florida likes Krispy Kreme doughnuts.
In fact according to his hometown paper, the 64-year-old used to treat himself to one of the delicious confections every other Wednesday.
Not anymore …
After allegedly failing to come to a complete stop upon leaving his local convenience store, Rushing was pulled over by Orlando police officer Shelby Riggs-Hopkins.
During the traffic stop, Rushing informed Riggs-Hopkins that he had a concealed weapons permit and was armed. She asked him to step out of his vehicle, at which point she observed “a rock like substance on the floor board where his feet were.”
“I recognized through my eleven years of training and experience as a law enforcement officer the substance to be some sort of narcotic,” she wrote.
Except it wasn’t … it was glaze from Rushing’s bi-weekly doughnut. Which he told Riggs-Hopkins.
Still, cops arrested Rushing regardless – claiming a pair of “field tests” on the glazed substance came back “positive.”
Several days later the charges were dropped, but Rushing has hired an attorney and is suing the city … as he should.
We wrote earlier today on the unfair impositions of the government’s failed “War on Drugs” – and have written on numerous occasions as to the broader war’s unmitigated, costly (and deadly) failure.
Chalk up another example of the ludicrousness of this anti-liberty, anti-prosperity (and apparently anti-doughnut) prohibition.
