Flushed

In a wise use of limited public resources, the Shelby County district attorney is waging a valiant effort to liberate vulnerable citizens from the wretched scourge that is Texas hold 'em poker. He started with the coffee shop that advertised weekly games a block away from his office.

I like how they got the tip on the "illegal" games:
Owens said the raid on the Coffee Kettle was the result of a complaint his office had received from a former poker player who had lost money at the games.

So, the DA decides to take officers and resources that could have been used to maybe stop drug traffic because someone cried about losing money in a game of chance. Idiots.

Well, there was a Kerry Edwards sign there in the window last summer. Obviously criminals in Shleby County.
