Reservoir Prohibition

History repeats itself. When the 18th amendment was put into place that made alcohol illegal, it did not take long for widespread crime to appear as a direct cause of the amendment. This meant that funds were wasted on law enforcement who had to respond to criminal activity that wouldn't have happened in the first place. This is not to say that these reservoirs will be rampant with crime, but the taxpayers will take on the additional burden of having to pay for more enforcement of patrolling for alcohol infringers. Already, there is a management problem if seven patrol officers are required for one alcohol related incident. Was the incident truly so horrific that so many officers were needed, or are there not many incidents that occur, unduly allowing so many officers to appear at one incident? Laws should not be enacted by fear and by the interests of so few, especially when dealing with individual liberties.
