Raw Milk Police Defeated As Jury Finds Minnesota Farmer Not Guilty


Septmeber 21, 2012

A small victory over the raw milk police, though the government is quick to state this ruling doesn’t set any precedent.

The Star Tribune reports:

A soft-spoken Minnesota farmer was cleared of
violating state laws for distributing raw milk Thursday, a verdict
advocates for such foods called their first major legal victory.

After a three-day trial and more than four hours of deliberation, a
Hennepin County jury found Alvin Schlangen not guilty of three
misdemeanor counts of selling unpasteurized milk, operating without a
food license and handling adulterated or misbranded food.

[...]In a statement, an Agriculture Department spokesman said, “We
strongly disagree with this ruling,” and added that the state provided
sufficient evidence to show that Schlangen violated the law.

“This narrow ruling does not wipe away the fact that many children
and adults have gotten dangerously sick from consuming raw milk. It also
does not wipe away the other legal rulings that have upheld MDA
enforcement actions,” the statement said.

Excuse me for ranting, but how many people have not only gotten “dangerously sick”, but died as a result of the dozens of wars the U.S. government has gotten itself in? How many people have died from the U.S.’s out of control police?

I find it hilarious that the most murderous people in society, the
government and it’s criminal agents, love to act as though they’re the
moral arbiter of “right and wrong,” while simultaneously their
“employer” is running multiple military occupations of foreign
countries, and a militarized police-state occupation domestically.

You can’t even drink raw milk in most states in this country without
being arrested and dragged before some bureaucrat in a robe with your
future placed into the hands of a random selection of “average”
Americans who have been essentially drafted into slavery by the jury
system and ordered to decide on your fate.

That’s not freedom, and this is not a free country. Anyone working to
support this system and jail people for non-crimes such a drinking raw
milk is on the same moral level as the lowest of criminals

    I'm pro-raw milk. I prefer store bought 2%, but I stand by anybody who wants to drink it instead. They cannot control our food supply!

    They SHOULD not, but by doing their duty as your Ruler, they do it anyway.
    Everyone is supposed to just bend over and take it, even when They are wrong.
    At least this jury saw thru the maze and acquitted the man. Did they try under common law?
