And, of course, the true story behind this threat is found early on in the article. It has nothing to do with "protecting the children" at all. Instead, this is a bunch of independent video rental stores trying to shut down the competition:

"We're just looking for a level playing field here."That's not leveling the playing field. It's trying to block competition -- and doing so with bogus charges of criminal behavior.
