We shall all sleep safely and soundly in our beds tonight thanks to crime fighting efforts of the ALE. Their heroism resulted in the identification of three dangerous criminals that will soon face the full wrath and fury of the NC criminal justice system.
(let's check the crime reports tomorrow and see how many robberies, assaults, and burglaries were committed while underage tobacco sales were being stymied)

I can just picture these agents going into a cop bar and being asked what they accomplished during their shift. "Wow. Really? Three clerks? Man, that must have been rough. You going to be able to handle that OK? Does your department offer counseling? I'll tell you what, let me buy you a drink and you can tell me all about it."

LOL! I agree Free. Hope these 3 store clerks don't get the gas chamber. What foolishness.

Wait... I can point out drug dealers in plain view within a block of the bus station, and the cops are worrying about tobacco sales to minors,(tobacco being one of the major agriculture products of North Carolina)?

Oh... Kay!
