How can PI's legally go through one's trash

and take personal papers and effects considered "garbage?" Maybe the difference has to do with collection by DPW (public) workers vs. private carters? It's still senseless! (Also the example below re offering bottled water in the heat!)

I SURE HOPE THE LEGISLATION IN SEDGEWICK, MAINE SETS A PRECEDENT IN TOWNS ACROSS AMERICA RE THE POWER OF PRIVATE CONTRACTS!

Those people would just have had to sign something saying they were taking the food - or laundry detergent or shoelaces - at their own risk. As reported in Natural News re Sedgewick: "Patrons purchasing food for home consumption may enter into private agreements with those producers or processors of local foods to waive any liability for the consumption of that food. Producers or processors of local foods shall be exempt from licensure and inspection requirements for that food as long as those agreements are in effect." Imagine that-buyer and seller can agree to cut out the lawyers. That's almost un-American, isn't it? http://www.naturalnews.com/039633_Sedgwick_food_freedom_fede...

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
