Trust the regulators

This is a fact:

Now an again it might be reasonable to hold a kid’s lemonade stand to the same standard as an adult business enterprise — like when a kid sets up the stand at a commercial venue like a fair to compete with grown-ups. But when cops go about shutting down juveniles’ lemonade stands because the law technically permits them to do so, we see the danger in broad, discretionary laws. Regulators tell us that the state can be trusted with broad authority because they will exercise good judgment and discretion. Really? What indication do we have of that?
