Elaine bubbled; "Laws are created to help man live with man, to protect property, and in this case, to protect our resources. "

Yes, and those laws are trumped by the 4th and 5th Amendment.

"Anarchy doesn't work. "

To suggest that LE actually follow Constitutional laws related to the 4th and 5th Amendments as "anarchy" is laughable. Pure police state propaganda.

"I was very sorry to see a member of our group receive a citation but, he broke the law."

If someone takes a short lobster, then pay the piper, as long as the piper adhered to the laws too....The DFG broke the law too, they boarded a boat without probable cause, they arrested everyone and they searched people's private effects without consent and without probable cause to believe a crime had been committed and without a search warrant. THAT, Elaine, is a crime.
