    Louisiana Makes It Illegal to Use Cash for Secondhand Sales

    Link to article

    Since it's printed on all US Currency, "This note is legal tender for all sales, public and private," I seriously doubt it will withstand the SCOTUS.

    Until it is struck down it will be known as most broken law in LA.

    I really hope some day politicians will pride themselves on repealing laws rather than making them.

    And to top it off the f**kheads blame it on law enforcement. The DAs here don't prosecute the laws we already have on the books. Now they add this uninforceable bullshit. F**king morons. Pardon my f**king french.

    Rickey Hardy, seems to think it's no big deal, admitting that this is purely to make life easier for law enforcement in response to criminals who steal stuff and then sell it off:
    first off - don't put your words into my mouth - cops have been tracking down criminals in this state for a long ass time before this stupid ass law... and will be doing so for a long time to come... (I may be being a little paranoid but...) just because you wanna keep track of how and where I'm spending my money - don't you DARE try to make people hate my profession that I love so dearly even more than they already do...

    you keep your nose out of what I spend my money on... it's none of your business...

    these knuckleheads in the capital are driving me crazy - they pass the dumbest crap... the most un-enforceable laws, but then jump up and down if we don't take off running code to go catch one of them...


    and +1 Capt...

    not always the DA - sometimes the judge... (just cause our DA over here is pretty good - the ADAs and the judges can sometimes be a toss up)

    next thing they'll wanna do is DNA swab, GPS track, have access to my personal cell phone, and want me to work for free just because I wear a badge and am a "public servant"...





    oh... wait... guess I could NOT do what my heart calls me to do... =/

    Yeah, one should always be leery of any politician who says a law they passed is to be used for one thing, but could be used for another. The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. But lawmakers have to know that any law will be used for the most sinister of purposes if it's not worded properly.

    After all, the Income Tax was only a "temporary measure" and was supposed to be repealed after WWI.

    I bet the main source of this law is to track income at pawn shops, etc. My opinion is that it made tracking stolen stuff harder because these shops will now be more careful about what they buy. Finding stolen stuff in a pawn shop is a big investigative tool.

    They already do that here using driver's licenses and ID cards. They also record serial numbers, makes, model numbers and enter that into a database so that investigators in the area can compare the lists to items entered into NCIC.
