This is going way too far .

Why don't they just carry a regular inspection rather than sending anti-organic food police raiding the food store and pointing guns as if they were searching for some dangerous criminal?
Is raw organic food representing such a danger to the city and its people?

Bad luck for them as they got caught on video and it is now going viral on the internet.

Isn't this abuse of power?

 Wow!

You can never be sure about that bunch of lettuce sitting quietly on its shelf, as they have a habit of coming up behind you and slitting your throat when you least expect..

How did the carrots go after they were tasered ?

How about a source for this that does not have on its top list on the right side a video of them titled "US worst criminal in the world"? Somehow I am thinking we are not seeing the whole story here...

And did anyone actually look at the conditions of the warehouse in that video? Seemed less than sanitary to me...

Pineapples are the worst. Haven't you seen Blackadder?

I thought of that too, so I went looking for some links to the LA times, the origniator of the facts.
Apparently, this dates back from the end of July.

Raw-food raid highlights a hunger
With no warning one weekday morning, investigators entered an organic grocery with a search warrant and ordered the hemp-clad workers to put down their buckets of mashed coconut cream and to step away from the nuts.
Then, guns drawn, four officers fanned out across Rawesome Foods in Venice. Skirting past the arugula and peering under crates of zucchini, they found the raid's target inside a walk-in refrigerator: unmarked jugs of raw milk.

and then here:

Beware the raw-food police! Or, depending on one's perspective, raw food itself.
"I still can't believe they took our yogurt." So says a volunteer at Rawesome Foods, referring to a recent raid by federal, state and local authorities on an organic grocery in Venice.

My take is that we never know if the kitchens of all the restaurants where we eat are turly sanitized or not.
I have seen more than dubious ones in a lot of places. This is why I very seldom eat out.

I hear the melons are among the most belligerent fruits.

While this has really been taken by the "organic" crowd as an assault on their way of life.

The real point here is excessive response by the government officials for the infraction and why so many government regulations.

I do not understand the thought process when someone complains about the someone selling unsafe milk is a victim and someone selling unsafe eggs needs to be demonized as an criminal.

Yes, but the response is to pull their business license if they refuse to pull the raw milk.

Selling raw milk is not a "victimless crime." It can cause outbreaks of dysentery in unrelated individuals, so if I buy your raw milk and I get dysentery, I may well have spread that dysentery to the whole elementary school where I work before I came down with symptoms. So I actually agree that the government has a role in stopping this practice.

That said, at no point was an armed raid warranted. Someone used very poor judgment and made this business into a martyr.

Don´t forget about brucellosis. That can be very nasty too.

How about boiled raw milk - bringing it to the boiling point and then cooling it off?
Won't that make ti safe to use?

That's called pasteurization.

Here raw milk was banned some hundred years ago due to bovine tuberculosis (which can spread to humans).
The problem is that organic food fanatics consider even short time heat treatment (Pasteurization), which ills most of the nasty germs, bad tampering with food.
