A great Drey Carey video for reason.tv. Dallas PD sent a SWAT team to bust up a VFW poker game. Absolutely shameful. Dallas SWAT continues to embarass the city with misguided poker raids.
Even the most casual observer of criminal justice can see the blatant hypocrisy of our State’s poker ban. Gambling in Texas is legal only if the State runs it. The Texas Lottery sells poker scratch off tickets, inter alia. Try and run a private poker game and we send a SWAT team to shut you down. Private poker is illegal. Our State’s gambling laws exist only to protect the State’s gaming monopoly.
