I have never purchased a ticket from a scalper so maybe I don’t have the right attitude about this area, but in my opinion, it is time for someone to take action in this matter. It can be the legislature or whatever body is necessary to put a stop to the nonsense. The computer programs or ticket agency setup that allow scalpers to make massive purchases and then take advantage of the public is due for a makeover. Free enterprise is not applicable to this situation. This is nothing more than raping of the public and it is time for the political establishment, local or national, to take action. This is just one of a very large number of smaller areas that the political establishment needs to address, then they should try the more important areas that need attention in order to better protect and serve the public instead of going on junkets or counting their stock options.
