Ahh, the joys of living in a free country. These girls learned a lesson entrepreneurship is punished in USA (Europe too). The need to pay their exorbitant business taxes before they decide to open a stand. Oh and fill out the paper work so the gov knows every detail about your buisness.

It all boils down to personal responsibility. This country severely lacks it, thus lawmakers have to enact these ridiculous codes & laws to attempt to prevent most people from being sued.
As a couple readers have mentioned: if you are worried about contamination of the lemonade, don't buy it. If you are willing to take the risk, then go for it, but be prepared to accept the consequence if you fall ill (of course if it is determined these sinister, evil little girls dumped rat poison in the lemonade with purpose, that's a whole 'nother issue....and quite likely NOT to happen). We should not have to have laws this strict. Permits for actual established businesses/kitchens/food carts are understandable, but a little lemonade stand? Really?
Same lines as the bulls*it laws that allow an intruder to sue YOU if they break into your home and get injured. That person may have broken a law by breaking into your home, but it is your fault if they get hurt or killed.......

steelgrid is a moron. where's the harm in 3 girls selling lemonade? just because it's a crime doesn't make it wrong, in this context. this is where "spirit of the law" is relevabt in todays society.

you probably side with the DA for that woman who has the vegetable garden in her front yard. nice to see people still conform to the law and never question.

the spirit of the law is a VERY WELL KNOWN CONCEPT IN LEGAL COURT idiot.

it is not some made up idea, it is acknowledgement that every law has a gray area and does not always cover EVRY situation.

you sir are a moron best served by a dictator that an tell you how to feel and when to feel it...now please, find the exit and get the drat out of my country.

"Just another example of morons with authority and no concept of the spirit of the law versus the letter of the law."

While I do not agree with these cops, I am sicked every time someone says "the spirit of the law".

The drat is that supposed to be? You gonna follow the "spirit" at a stop sign? Oh just roll on through, no biggie, theres no one around. SLAM!!!

Maybe we can use the "spirit" in stores: You know, EA games makes 100s of millions a year, I can steal this game. No harm done.

I dont care how you twist it, acting as though something falls within the "spirit" of the law is still BREAKING THE LAW!!!

I don't blame the police here. I don't want police arbitrarily choosing when and when not to enforce the law.

I do blame the city council (or whichever body) for imposing regulations without exceptions for these circumstances.

This used to be a free country. Can't imagine what things will be like in another twenty years.

So, if these cops were living in Nazi Germany, they would have enforced the Nuremberg laws without hesitation, for no other reason other than it was the law, regardless of moral implications. (for those of you who were educated in the U.S., look it up on Google).

"The law's the law, and we have to be consistant with how we enforce [it]".

No, you don't.

This is exactly what happens when municipal council members blindly adopt into law health code regulations with-out reading the code first. This happened in Albuquerque a few year ago and the code was amended quickly after some harsh public outcry. I'm sure this is the same nationalized crap pushed by a group who thinks all food should be nuked before consumption. I'm sure the adopted code bans everything from pot luck dinners to bringing snack to say an athletic function. I am all for health regulations but, fascism does not always come with the rumbling of tanks.

Lots of comments about 'upholding the law' and so on from the cops, in their defense. Seems they forgot to read the lawbook. A child under the age of 14-18 (depending on jurisdiction) cannot legally enter into a contract, and to be selling lemonade, an implied contract of sale is created. So they WEREN'T breaking the law.

I hope these girls learned their lesson, that being:

1. Sometimes stupid people are put into positions of authority.

2. This will never change.

3. Learn to deal with it.

Ok, point number one: this isn't news. I don't care, even if I lived there.

Next, the law is the law, and for a reason, as the cop pointed out.

Finally, the media is stupid. This story is designed to exact an emotional response, obviously, but I still don't care.

You might think that the cops ought to be doing something more productive with their time, which is true, but we don't know the area. Maybe it was a slow crime day just as it was a slow news day.

At least it was a warning as opposed to the other anti-lemonade stand story a while back which resulted in a fine.
