1. Did she know there was gambling for money or booze ?

2. Is this the only place she could serve ?

3. Has she ever heard the adage: "If you lie with dogs you'll get fleas." ?

4.Will you help her learn from this experience or help her be "a victim" ?

It appears she was a waitress. She had a job. Jobs aren't terribly easy to come by these days. This is a silly story. I'm pretty sure the agents didn't "storm" the place as the games were in the open. The owners made a mistake in not being familiar with the laws and certainly should have been arrested AS A TECHNICALITY.
Not a brilliant piece of police work OR even a fair piece of journalism.
I would like to know which agent let someone go without paying their tab. That's over stepping his authority.

as always Magoo can't actually SEE the real story or facts.
