When Pitchforks are Outlawed, Only Outlaws will have Pitchforks

An Arizona man was arrested for attempting to bring a pitchfork into a county supervisor’s building in February.

The judge acquitted him, stating that the county manager’s decision “allowing members of the public with holstered handguns access to the building but denying access to the defendant because he had a holstered pitchfork was arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable.”

Furthermore, the man got his pitchfork back.

    Times like these when I love the american justice system.

    I get sick of reading these cases all day and seeing rights trampled upon, and then there’s one case where you just read the opinion and you can’t help but laugh repeatedly.
