The Anti-Drunken Empire Strikes Back: It was a little slow in coming, but some bloggers including Their Prominences Eugene Volokh and Clayton Cramer have said they're not too upset about what happened when Fairfax County Police entered restaurants and bars for some pre-emptive arresting. I agree with Volokh that Bob Barr overstates his case by using the word "Gestapo"--a lot of Nazi imagery is used much too casually and we all should stop and think about the ultimate horror to which we're comparing relatively mild infractions. But I'm with Barr all the way on his main argument and with those who think the police overstepped their bounds. Volokh and Cramer, both of them thoughtful and careful writers, seem a bit credulous about the innocuous version of the story told by police. Much of which is in this follow-on in the Washington Times.
