Why do the police persistently persecute Chris Baldwin?

He was preparing another coffee shop, when the police went in to see what he
was up to. An elderly couple own it, so they went to see them. By
threatening them with prosecution, they decided not to go ahead, so Chris
lost out.

The coffee shops get rid of street dealers, who also sell hard drugs to
young people. They also provide a safe environment where friends can meet
and enjoy each other's company. The police are wasting taxpayers money, and
their limited resources.
