I see where the Indiana excise police decided to spend more money to police the good people of this state on how they should spend their money.

The state excise police should be going around all the casinos and seeing how many people they can catch using their government money to gamble with. I think they would be surprised, or maybe not.

I think our state excise police should put these resources to better use instead of paying for overtime (weekend raids) on places some of the people of this state enjoy going to and spending their money any way they want!

After all, I'm sure someone at the state excise police probably won a square or two on Super Bowl weekend.
