Modesto Police ABC Out of Control Downtown

MPD Out of Control Downtown…

Many people don’t know that the California State ABC (Alcohol Beverage Control) has been giving the City of Modesto a grant to enforce their rules in the City of Modesto for the past three years. This grant also empowers MPD officers to become pseudo ABC agents and allows them to enforce all ABC rules. Since the grant was given MPD is on the offensive harassing businesses and causing havoc with people’s livelihoods. Just in downtown Modesto MPD has busted Tresetti’s, Barking Dog, Taiwan Restaurant, Tokyo Empress, Sharkey’s Crab Shack, Fat Cat, Dewz, 1505, Minnie’s, and those are just the ones that I know of. There almost isn’t one business that they haven’t written up for one reason or another in the downtown area.
