Ice Cream Stops in California

Scott Greenfield: “[T]his was a very cute bit of public relations on the part of the Quincy cops and Wall’s Ice Cream.  And it was also very wrong, very unconstitutional, and a very poor idea.  If the police want to hand out ice cream cones, that’s great. Let them have a pushcart and do so honestly. They do not get to use their authority to add hilarity to their show of force, and they should never sell their shield to any business, even one that makes something as happy as ice cream.”   Read his entire post.
