Share a favorite family dish or recipe, go to prison

At least if you live in San Joaquin County.

From the Media Research Center:
You can all rest easy because the streets of San Joaquin County are now safe from hardened criminals who sell homemade food to their Facebook friends.

Fox 40 reports that to keep you safe, San Joaquin County police conducted a sting operation against members of 209 Food Spot, a Facebook group dedicated to exchanging recipes and sharing food. Now, a single mother of six faces up to a year in jail after she sold some of her homemade ceviche to a Facebook group member who happened to be an undercover cop.

According to Fox 40, Mariza Ruelas and a dozen others were cited with two misdemeanors for "operating a food facility and engaging in business without a permit.” [...]

For those wondering if the cops in San Joaquin County have nothing better to do than nark on single mothers sharing food photos, according to AreaVibes, a website dedicated to determining the "livability" of an area, San Joaquin County has a crime rate 11 percent higher than the national average. In fact, Forbes listed Stockton, where Ruelas lives, as the 8th most dangerous city in the United States in 2012.
This is even worse than Shasta County harassing a Millville 4-H group that wanted to deliver meals to the homeless.

Welcome to 2016's Amerika, land of the fee and home of the slaves.
