What they did not say

The article mentions filth and the fact that he was unlicensed.
A man was held Wednesday on charges that he performed dental work on customers without a license in his "filthy" garage, authorities said. Roger Bean, 60, was arrested Tuesday and held on $6,000 bond.

Bean performed denture fittings and made false teeth in his garage, charging just $200 for a full set of dentures, a procedure that typically costs more than $2,000, authorities said. But he was not licensed to practice in Florida.
In the whole article not one person was mentioned as a victim. His neighbors liked him AND his service.

They knew he was unlicensed, as not many dentists work out of their garage. They balanced the cost verses the threat. He won customers over the strangled regulated system.
"He's helping the old people who don't have a few dollars," he said. "I think the world of him."
If the state doesn't get their cut, they shut you down.

In the last year I have had ALL of my car work done by home mechanics. No licenses, no company insurance, and at a lower price. If the gov found out, they would shut my mechanic down. My costs would go up, and I would be screwed. I simply cannot afford a regular mechanic and their prices.

I know that if he/she screws up my vehicle they has no insurance to cover the damages. I know the risks. I made the choice to save money knowing the risks and advantages.

The gov sees my mechanic as the enemy. I see them as a lifesaver.

Support your local underground economy. They live next door to you. They may be you
