The Obesity Police Strike

Well, the Nanny state war against obesity has begun.
It's true that this story comes out of the UK, so why should we here in the US be concerned about it? Well how about the GFW's citing the UK as a model of "proper" gun control? Can the Fat Police be far behind here?

Kudos to Gutrumbles for the heads up.

The case is interesting. If we oppose the "nanny-state" taking him to a hospital, we really need to oppose the state's war on drugs. Food is certainly a more lethal addiction, when it's this extreme, than the continued use of hallucinogens or opiates. I would agree that the state needs to step back on this one.
