GOVERNMENT IS JUST ANOTHER WORD FOR THE THINGS WE CHOOSE TO DO TOGETHER: Cancer Survivor Fined $2,260 for Providing Rides to Hospital Patients: Hospital describes her services as “invaluable.”

For more than three years, the cancer survivor—an unnamed woman—served outpatients at St. Joseph’s Hospital, offering round-trip rides for those in need. Despite years of successful work and those in the hospital calling her a “critical volunteer,” her charitable operation was shut down after being a target of a police sting operation.

The London police can’t handle the acid attacks or the rape gangs, but they’ve got the resources to mount a sting operation against volunteers who drive sick people to the hostpital. But that’s how it works: The worse the authorities are at dealing with actual bad people, the more they crack down on good people so it looks like they’re doing something.
