That's horrible.

I see kids selling bottled water / juice on medians everyday (basically the poor kids' lemonade stand) and try to support them when I can.

The article says the cops looked into it and discovered it was legal for them to do this if they are under 16. No harm, no foul.

The issue isn't whether or not the act was legal or illegal, enforced or ignored, the point is what kind of no life individual would even consider calling the police to complain about kids selling lemonade!!

They were tattled on by a scardy cat that loves zoning laws more then freedom. First a Lemonaid stand then a Wal-mart.
