    "Lost in all of this is the one demonstrable trend that is noticeable and that affects us all—that as the number of laws and the number of peaceful activities that are regulated increase, the more these kinds of incidents take place. In the Garner case, if there were no arbitrary law against engaging in peaceful commerce without giving the state a cut, Garner would never have been confronted, would never have resisted and would never have been choked to death."
