    I kind of feel bad for this old man

    He got busted a few months back for the same thing.

    Guess the state wants their tax money.



    ABC agents seize illegal wine from home
    http://www.wavy.com/dpp/news/crime/a...wine-from-home

    NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - A Newport News man is in trouble again for illegally manufacturing and selling wine in his home, agents with the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) said.

    Authorities conducted a bust at a home in the 900 block of 15th Street, seizing 600 gallons of wine.

    Accusations pertaining to an alleged illegal operation led to the bust and arrest of 83-year-old James Edward Skinner and his grandson, 44-year-old Darrin Skinner. According to Maureen Haney, with the ABC, both men were charged with three counts each of illegally selling alcoholic beverages without a license and keeping/maintaining a common nuisance.

    Haney said the men were operating a shot house. Undercover agents bought wine, which came in various flavors at a cost of $7-8 per half gallon, from the home numerous times prior to Friday's arrests.

    “Skinner stored and manufactured the wine in a garage and shed on the property,” said Robert M. Brooks, Special Agent in Charge of the Hampton ABC Enforcement Office.

    The Newport News Police Department and Virginia Marine Police assisted the ABC in the shot house case.

    This is not a first-time offense for James Skinner. Last year, agents seized 670 gallons of wine from the same home.

    Then 82, Skinner was arrested and charged with illegally manufacturing alcoholic beverages (three felony counts), maintaining a common nuisance (three counts), illegally selling alcoholic beverages without a license (two counts) and the illegal possession of untaxed distilled spirits (moonshine).

    James is still awaiting trial for those charges, Haney said.

    why? Because he got busted and continued his illegal acts? then got caught again?

    Plus you have sympathy for no one

    600+ gallons isn't exactly a "home brewing for personal consumption" operation.

    Why not just go through the proper channels and get the license at that point.

    Why do you need a license? That's fucking bullshit
    Look, the American people have chosen to have a fiat money standard because they want a welfare state. You cannot have a gold standard and a welfare state at the same time. You have to make the choice. We have made a decision as a society that we’ll be dealing with the welfare state. -Alan Greenspan

    They had a "reality show" on History channel, maybe discovery, called 'Moonshiners'. Showed both sides the ABC agent side and the illegal side

    The holy quran says not to drink alcohol for obvious reasons. whether you want to drink it or not is not my business.
