Diner closed after owner took pic of health violation-issuing inspector
Quote:
The owner of the popular downtown diner George’s — where Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly have dined — wound up in hot water after he tried to skewer a city health inspector by recording his visit on an iPhone.

Naturally, if the owner had not taken a picture of the inspector, his diner would not have been closed. Another example of worthless government intrusion in private business. We need to get rid of these fascist "health inspectors".

Irked, if you were a health inspector, or any kind of inspector, would you care if someone either filmed or photographed you, especially if it were in their own establishment and you were performing your official duties in accordance to the rules and regs and it didn't interfere with you performing your legitimate duties?

First, I would never participate as a member of the Collectivist coercion machine called government. But if in some alternate universe I was "legally" violating the Private Property Rights of a Citizen by "inspecting" the health and safety of the Private Citizen's business, I would not care a fig whether my picture was taken or not. Apparently, all these inspectors are very shutter shy. According to the article, a different inspector gave the establishment a poor rating the month before and threatened to sanction the business if improvements were not made. The only explanation is that the business owner took the picture of the previous inspector as well. How else could he have gotten such a poor rating?

I don't know. I'm all in favor of regulation, proper inspection, and legitimate enforcement of the laws, equally and impartially enforced. Why we're talking about regulation, let's re-institute the Glass-Steagal Act. What do you think?

That happens a lot.

I suspect that you may have had similar experiences or at least are aware of them. Our legal system isn't quite like what it's portrayed in the funny pages and on TV. I'm not a lawyer. I've had some government lawyer whistle-blowers contact me in the past. I've deleted all their email years ago. They appeared to realize that I understood how the system works. I suspect that you do, too. What can I say other than it's a disappointment, especially when you believed that "justice was blind" and the rule of law.
