Rothe was also charged with several traffic violations, Dino said. The pick-up truck was impounded, police said. Further charges against the two are possible, police said, as the Bergen County Police Department Commercial Vehicle Inspection Team will inspect the men’s pick-up truck, and the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs was called to investigate the claims of price gouging.
Go capitalism! Except, not in a crisis, when higher prices would actually mitigate hoarding, soften panics, and guarantee supply.
For the crime of charging market rates at this particular time, we’ll seize your stock and also the vehicle it was sitting in, just in case. God loves capitalism and constitutional freedoms, just not right now okay!
Americans are weird. Also, screwed. Weird and screwed.
