Post Falls police, accompanied by State liquor control board officers, and State Lottery people, busted the bars and private clubs in Post Falls Thursday for possessing gambling machines. Duh! They have had these machines under a tolerance policy that has existed for more than thirty years.
A moral issue? No way! It was, according to State Lottery officials, a competitive issue. "It is costing us millions per year, said this officious official".
Apparently, gambling is O.K. only if it's run by the state. I personally don't like the machines, but question the justification for the heavey handed use of the law to kill competition.
