The game of poker is moving along, not harming anybody, yet authorities still like to make the game a scapegoat for their gambling busts. The latest instance occurred in Sandy Springs, Georgia.

Fifteen people were arrested at a residence where authorities claim there was illegal commercial gambling taking place. Police raided the $650,000 house on Sunday. Lt. Steve Rose was quick to point out the seriousness of the crimes.

Rose, the spokesman for the Sandy Springs police department said that "enormous" amounts of poker chips were found along with two poker tables in the basement at the home. Chairs, a bar, and food were also being served at the house.

"In order to play poker, the game requires poker chips, cards, chairs, and tables. Just because these items were found at the house does not mean there was any illegal activity taking place. authorities really have to find something better to do with their time than bust these friendly house poker games," said observer Brian Tridwell.

Of the people that were arrested, eleven were men and four were women. Three were charged with felony counts of commercial gambling and will have to face a judge in Fulton County Superior Court. The others will have to appear in Sandy Springs City Court.

Judges in Colorado and Pennsylvania have recently thrown out poker related charges after ruling that the game of poker was one of skill and not luck.
