According to Natural News, a California man named James Stewart is alleging torture at the hands of Los Angeles County law enforcement officers after his arrest for selling raw milk.
This from a federal government which holds that pizza is a vegetable.
NaturalNews can now report that 65-year-old senior citizen James Stewart, a raw milk farmer with no criminal history, was nearly tortured to death in the LA County jail this past week. He survived a “week of torturous Hell” at the hands of LA County jail keepers who subjected him to starvation, sleep deprivation, hypothermia, loss of blood circulation to extremities, verbal intimidation, involuntary medical testing and even subjected him to over 30 hours of raw biological sewage filth containing dangerous pathogens.
This is from a county that has targeted and terrorized James Stewart for the supposed crime of selling fresh milk containing “dangerous pathogens.” That’s right – the only “crime” James has ever committed is being the milk man and distributing milk that is openly and honestly kept fresh and raw instead of pasteurized.
I don’t know how seriously to take some of these allegations, but it’s true that Mr. Stewart was arrested for selling raw milk. His bail was set at $1 million.
The bail set for accused pedophile Jerry Sandusky in the now-infamous Penn State molestation case? $100,000.
Meanwhile, in France, they’re putting raw milk vending machines on the streets.
Raw milk isn’t for me, personally. But if American citizens, conscious of the choice they’re making, choose to buy raw milk despite whatever risks may exist, should the government really be arresting them for making that choice? Or making the choice to service that demand?
But remember, according to the Obama administration, Americans “do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food [they] wish.”
It’s one thing for the government to warn about the dangers of certain products. It’s quite another to control those choices. Americans should be free to make their own choices about their food and their health, even if the government thinks they’re bad choices.
