Anarcho-Tyranny in Action

EFTA strikes again.

From the Washington Examiner:

Jimmy’s Old Town Tavern owner Jimmy Cirrito said his bartenders have been entertaining his customers — by juggling bottles of alcohol and spitting out streams of flames using matchbooks and lighters — for more than a decade and no one’s complained. But shortly after midnight on July 24, two of his longtime employees were hauled out of the Herndon bar in handcuffs and charged with three felonies each plus other misdemeanors. “They were being treated as if they were terrorists, charged as if they intentionally tried to burn down the tavern,” Cirrito said.

Mr. Cirrito is of course wrong. The fire-breathing bartenders were not being treated as if they were terrorists. If they were terrorists they’d be treated like this.
