Texas Cops Raid, Shutdown Lemonade Stand Run By 7 Year Old Girls

Don’t mess with Texas. Particularly if you happen to be a person who enjoys the freedom to purchase lemonade from two adorable little girls trying to raise money to buy their dad a Father’s Day gift. In that case, you better watch out. The cops are on the case, ever vigilant to protect the unsuspecting citizen from the perils of contraband juice.

There is a war on normal human behavior happening all across America. It was only yesterday that I highlighted the inhumane case of a Florida couple which had its children snatched away from them by Child Protective Services (CPS), because the kids were playing alone in their own backyard for 90 minutes. Here are a few excerpts from the piece titled, 11-Year-Old Boy Taken Away by CPS for Being Left in Backyard Alone for 90 Minutes; Parents Charged with Neglect:

One afternoon this past April, a Florida mom and dad I’ll call Cindy and Fred could not get home in time to let their 11-year-old son into the house. The boy didn’t have a key, so he played basketball in the yard. He was alone for 90 minutes. A neighbor called the cops, and when the parents arrived—having been delayed by traffic and rain—they were arrested for negligence.

 

They were put in handcuffs, strip searched, fingerprinted, and held overnight in jail.

 

It would be a month before their sons—the 11-year-old and his 4-year-old brother—were allowed home again. Only after the eldest spoke up and begged a judge to give him back to his parents did the situation improve.

Well done Florida.

Not to be outdone, Texas is using taxpayer resources to crackdown on little girls selling lemonade. From the Free Thought Project:

Tyler, TX — Last week, police in Texas heroically saved the town from likes of two young girls who attempted to open a black market lemonade stand. The girls, one 7-year-old and one 8-year-old, dared to try to raise money to buy a Father’s day present for their dad by setting up a lemonade stand in their neighborhood.

 

Andria and Zoey Green told ABC affiliate KLTV they were trying to raise about $100 for a Father’s Day present. They wanted to take him to Splash Kingdom.

 

Over the weekend, the two young entrepreneurs took to the streets with their delicious batch of homemade lemonade and began to provide willing customers with their product. Only one hour into their business endeavor, these girls had raised 25% of their goal.

 

However, their cash cow would be shut down not long after it started. Overton police chief Clyde Carter showed up along with the city code enforcer and shutdown their criminal operation.

 

The girls had violated Texas House Bill 970, or the Texas Baker’s Bill, which does not allow the sale of food that needs time or temperature control to prevent it from spoiling. Since the lemonade would eventually grow mold after being left out for days, police said they needed an inspection from the health department and a permit to sell it and deemed their operation “illegal.”

The cost of the permit is $150 dollars.

 

Police officers can certainly use discretion and choose not to “enforce” this law for use in such an asinine application. The fact that these girls had their good intentions ruined by those who claim to protect them speaks to the level of discontent with law enforcement in America today.

 

The heartening side to this story is that these young girls are now learning to bypass this tyrannical system of bureaucratic nonsense. The girls said they will be setting up their lemonade stand again this weekend. Instead of selling it though, they will be giving it away, but they will gladly be accepting donations.

I’m still waiting for a bank executive to be sentenced.

Heard yesterday whilst in line...

"What's the difference between ritual sacrifice and bloodletting?"

"With ritual sacrifice you get dancing."

Bada-boom! TISH!

We're flushing out the liberals Mike.  Every time one of these things happen, it is duly noted...

 

They will be removed in one fell swoop soon as we flush out the rest.

Liberal Democrats do not belong in Texas.   Their fifteen minutes are up.

Texans talk big but they have amnesty john cornyn the neo con, goldman sachs cruz, george pedro bush, the rest of the bushes and lbj.  They killed the last prez who tried to attck central banking.

Give the man a fish and he'll eat for a day.

Teach the man to fish and he can't fish, because he doesn't have a fishing license.

Light a man on fire and he stays warm for the rest of his life --

Teach a man to fish and he'll still vote for the guy who gave him a fish.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.  Then find someone whose life gave them vodka, add ice and make a nice refreshing cocktail!  (as seen on the wall in a local bar--"Wayan and Friends", Bali, Indonesia).  Life's a Beach!

These seeming innocent but obviously sinister kids are totally "made" , if you ask me.

Cops shut down their lemonade stand.

Then suddenly have a hit squad knocking on the doors of Gestapo Headquarters with pipe bombs and violin cases.

My guess is that the lemonade stand will be left alone in the future.

Interesting perspective. Deranged, but interesting.

So tens of millions of people will see this and still vote for government.

We need to eliminate the dupe gene from the population.

We need more reactions like this:

"The heartening side to this story is that these young girls are now learning to bypass this tyrannical system of bureaucratic nonsense. The girls said they will be setting up their lemonade stand again this weekend. Instead of selling it though, they will be giving it away, but they will gladly be accepting donations."

Don't get angry, be smart and go around the stupidity.

if the Lemonade was free but Hugs were a $1 would that be a sex offense since it was a minor and that would attract deviants.

How about this approach:  stock market advice for $1.00, with free lemonade for customers.  The advice is "stay out of the stock market."

You're telling me financial advisers don't need a licence from The Man???

If that's the case ... if I were in town I'd be more than happy to drop a C-note for a glass.

That's as easy as simply shutting down television/cable/satellite. Turn off the idiot box and you will have revolution in 3 days.

You can have it within half an hour if you kill all the cellphones/phablets/tablets.

Kill the cellphones and you will also have blubbering, hysterical, suicidal zombies.

Count on it. Mark my words.

I would make a special batch of lemonade for that police chief and code enforcer. A nice warm batch. Bottoms up you tax-payer funded bullies.

What?  no SWAT team/?  They got off easy....

Things like this tend to snowball. Lemonade is well known by gov experts as a gateway drink, and the cops just trying to protect them from themselves. One minute the kids are doing this and the next thing you know they're on to cupcakes, cookies.

 

MisterMousePotato's picture

Good thing they didn't have a dog.

zeroaccountability's picture

Yeah, or worse yet, they might start selling the 'KOOL AID'.

Tall Tom's picture

Yeah! Girl Scout Cookies.

 

Insidious tactics. Using innocent little girls to sell such an addictive substance.

 

Lemonaide stands are the gateway. You are right. They must be stopped at all costs.

 

Behind those cute faces are monsters seeking your soul.

 

Girl Scout cookies. Bad news.

 

(I am jonesen for some more Girl Scout cookies right now..I...I...I am an addict. There is no relief.)

ZH, I understand you don't want to be Drudge Report II or Drudge Report Lite, but Matt had this story days ago.

ZH has published numerous stories of greater importance which you won't see anywhere else over the past few days. They've finally caught up with this one as a bit of weekend humor.

Little cunt shouldn't have been operating an unauthorized lemonade stand without approval from the state. 

Stupid bitch must have thought she was free. Send her to a Michele Obama health re-education camp. Let's make sure the parents get an audit by the IRS.

We can't have these little shits running around spreading diabetes while operating a business and not paying taxes.

That should read "bitchette" considering their ages.

A neighbor called the cops, and when the parents arrived—having been delayed by traffic and rain—they were arrested for negligence.

If that was my neighbor they'd have a major problem on their hands.

Dumb ass neighbor could have invited the kid in for milk and cookies until the 'rents got home.
