Commissioners Working on Internet Cafe Regulations

Leon County Commissioners decide to move forward with attempts to regulate Internet Cafes.

In Tuesday night's meeting, the commission discussed regulations that would include regulating the location and hours of operation for Internet cafes, requiring licensing and inspection fees, background checks, and security.

The commission voted tonight to have the county attorney get input from the industry, then come back with an ordinance to go before a public hearing.

    Does this look famililar? "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." If congress can't do it, then the county commissioners shouldn't be able to either.

    Internet Cafe proceeds should be appropriated to Commissioner Proctor to aid him in his effort to fight against hard working Hispanics and Indians. Goodness, we do not need any hard working people harming his cause.Any left over funds should be given to the John Marks benevolent fund.

    What is the point of getting input from the industry? Do they really think that will be conducive? What industry would say, "oh, yes... we would like you to regulate how we do things more, putting more restrictions and costs on us." PUHLEASE!!!!
