Angry 30 Years

I'm facing 30 years. As I sit here I wish to congratulate all the parents new and old. Ours is 14 and I'm wondering if I'll get to see her turn 15.
My father started a video store in 1976. We were the only store in E. Orange Co. when it opened. We carried every rating, & magazines & adult novelties too.
The County has now decided We are not in the correct "zoning". We have been in same location for 26 almost 27 years. We still carry all ratings, plus the mags & novelties. But we do not feel we are an "adult entertainment establishment" the co. WILL NOT tell us a true definition of their ordinance.
So as I sit here tonight I wonder If anyone realizes what I & my family has at steak for EVERYONE'S 1st amendment rights.
The county has decided to charge Me, My Mom & G-Mom with, get this
1) Racketeering (Felony- 30 yrs)
2) conspiracy to racketeer (Felony- 30 yrs)
3) Posession & distrubition or Sale of obscene material (felony)
Don't know how many yrs.
4) operating an unlicensed Adult bookstore. (ord. violation)
So as I sit here this evening I wonder, Will I get to see our daughter grow up? Will I get to grow old with Nasty Habit?

Yes 30 years for carring titles that are not illegal, but the county is charging me like they are & I knowingly continued to sell & rent them anyways. These titles are available at all the stores who carry adult titles, yet they only charged my store.

neb,

per my last post with Nasty, I am hoping your lawyer has all the dirt sorted and is ready for these jokers. Hope the day in court is a rude awakening for THEM, the beurocrats.

my fingers and toes are crossed for you.

Politicians regulating and legislating the far right moral agenda. That sucks for you and everybody, but I expect it will be the trend for at least a couple of years.

How long have you been selling the items that they find particularly offensive? If you have been in this business as long as you say, your merchandise is probably within the community standard, don't you think?

Sorry to hear this Neb.

Something like that is happening here too.

This is a full fledge ADULT store that has been operating for years. The township since built pre-school & kindergarden schools across the street from that store. Now they are trying to get them to move thier business.....

One other situation was a Gun shop in another town. They don't want to see the children having to pass that store, so they are trying to get them to move also....

And if you haven't already heard, Blow Boaters want to over regulate the NJ Waterways and ban powerboats from exceeding 35mph.

What is this world coming to......
