    Oops! I guess the “we won” was a bit premature.
    I personally prefer civility over anarchy/group power. I have to give high marks to the officials for de-escelating the scene at the farm, even though it appears they would have been in the right to use force.My congrats to the officials, and my disappointment in those who still believe in the primitive virtue of a pitch fork gang form of justice (entirely subjective). (Not that my opinion is of any weight, but hopefully it will make some think…) [edit] But at least some can claim and be seen as courageous 😦
