    That's Socialism, it teaches people to be dependent.. Overweening regulation from government crushes any type of self reliance and entrepreneurship but it's okay if you want to be a dirt bag layabout and collect welfare.

    Ok read it & I can't believe a cop would do that these little girls were trying to earn a honest pay to go to the water-park & the cop ruined it with his blasphemous allegations.

    Even though though you should have a license to sell this, it is hard to decide if it should be shut down or not. Yes, because they could put some kind of poison in it (they don't want to take any risk). And no, because they learn to get responsibilty.
    The problem is that it's just to risky to let them to this.

    Nobody got arrested. They just shut the stand down. Am I the only one not seeing the problem here?

    I understand why they shut it but still. They needed to make a quick buck and lemonade stands are the traditional way for young children [​IMG]

    No. I totally agree with you.

    They didn't have license, and it was never controlled. The law is meant to protect people. If someone dies from the lemonade in an curious way, the children will go to jail. If someone gets sick, the children will go to jail. The law is meant to protect people.

    America really sucks but again.. You forgot something.. 14 years old can use the money to buy drugs or alcohol from an older people. Perhaps ? That's possibly.

    What a joke. Do you even know what you're talking about? Kids can literally get away with murder (as a first offense). It's lemonade, not some lethal poison you moron. The law is meant to squeeze as much cash out of anyone it can, and limit freedoms to keep people in a submissive line. If you pay enough, you can avoid the law. As long as the higher ups get cash, what the fuck do they care.

    It was a childrens lemonade stand. They've existed since the dawn of lemons, it's retarded to even THINK of shutting down a tiny little lemonade stand like the police did. That was way out of line. It wasn't a multi-million dollar business enterprise. Considering it sounds like they already had it up the day prior and still couldn't afford the tickets, it's pretty obvious they were probably pulling in very, very small profit.

    So, these kids can't go to the waterpark now because some asshole cop decides to shut down a harmless lemonade stand. And people wonder why no one trusts cops anymore. What a dick move to pull on little kids. Greedy governments want to make little kids buy a freaking license just to run a simple lemonade stand, LITTLE KIDS, how pathetic. It's time people start telling the government to get out from up our asses all the time.

    That kind of stuff just pisses me off. They were just little kids trying to raise money to have a little harmless fun at a waterpark, for Pete's sake. Hope that cop feels like a big man now. Hope a REAL criminal tears him a new one soon. It would be just what he deserves.

    I don't know how it works in the Netherlands but something has to be proven for someone to go to jail in the US and on top of that 14 year olds don't go to jail

    $27 for a children's ticket? Ladies and gentlemen that's the real criminal offence in this tale.
