Why? Because although it's currently illegal, the rule is not enforced. A rule that is not enforced should not be a rule at all.
Why is it that we reward those who respect the rules with nothing but sleepless nights while the ones who violate them--even brazenly, and in public!--are allowed to reap all the benefits, safe in the knowledge that they'll never face retribution?
This isn't right. But it doesn't have to be this way. Legalize auto feeding.
