    Right, they had to shut it down for legal reasons, of course. I'm sure the mayor would've had their badges if he found out they weren't crushing the hopes and dreams of small girls.

    I'm pretty sure this wasn't a case where there was any chance of anybody being harmed or sued if the girls were allowed to continue to sell lemonade. The Police Chief did it because she's a shitty human being.

    Chief Morningstar is female. That's a badass name BTW, makes me wonder if she broke up the lemonade stand with a mace.

    Well then she sucks.

    Funny, for some reason I equated her name with shitty veggie burgers before medieval weaponry, lol.

    that is an awesome name!

    anwyay, let's turn this around.

    what if the lemonade stand was the cause of multiple peeps admitted to the hospital from food poisoning?

    We had the same problem here in Maryland. A group of neighborhood kids were selling lomonade to raise money for a charity. It was close to the golf course where the kids hoped they could provide visitors with drinks during a golf match. The neighborhood association told them to stop.

    Fortunately saner heads ruled and they were able to continue to sell in another place.

    I lay these instances squarely at the feet of lawyers and citizens who love to sue. They are selfish, cruel, rude and did I mention selfish.

    A. Unless they're using raw chicken chunks as ice cubes, that's pretty unlikely.

    B. You're always taking a risk when buying food or drink from a street vendor, even if the person is licensed.

    Heh my mom is actually a council woman so I had to get her input on this. She pretty much said, "The amount of bad press they will receive will outweigh the price of the permit."

    It's actually hilarious in a sad kind of way. I mean was the lemonade laced with cocaine or something? It really just ruins the kid's spirits. Here they are, trying to do something good, put effort into doing so, and then got shut down? The cops should told them they could stay open but kick up 20% to them for protection.

    I think that's already happened. I remember reading a few years ago that some kids got in trouble for using chalk on the side walk......

    Exactly. And anyone with an ounce of foresight would be able to see that, and wouldn't have bothered those girls.

    I don't doubt it. I'm pretty sure they're just going to outlaw childhood next. They'll have to get full time jobs at age 5 just to pay for their private education since public education will be non-existent eventually.
