Authorities break up private lottery

From the article:

The sheriff and prosecutor are filing civil suits to retain the $2.2 million and use it to patch their recession-hit budgets, Worthy said.

"Law enforcement can reap the benefits of this kind of behavior," Worthy said. She said the extra cash would come in handy, "especially with all the homicides that are going on in Detroit and Wayne County."

Well, this pretty much says it all to me--for them, it's not an issue of whether these people should morally be able to run their own lottery. It's about revenue collection, which, I'd say is the entire point behind why gambling has become a state venture and not a private one.

Disgusting is exactly right.
