The Village Idiots of Glen Cove – lead by Mayor Suozzi - have determined that it is the stores’ fault that people steal shopping carts and leave them around where the Town has to clean them up. Their solution is to fine the stores because people steal from them. This actually makes sense to them. The fine is $250 per cart and they figure to get $20,000/year.
Good plan - ignore the people who steal stuff and pass a law that punishes the stores that are targets of the theft. Who would have guessed that the idiots who thought this one up are “lifelong Democrats”?
