Cops Shut Down 10-Year-Old’s Lemonade Stand
All they wanted to do was raise money to go to the water park, but Midway, GA police decided this was a criminal enterprise.
“It’s kind of crazy that we couldn’t sell lemonade,” 14-year-old Casity Dixon told WJCL. “It was fun, but we had to listen to the cops and shut it down.”
…“They told us to shut it down,” 10-year-old Skylar Roberts said.
“We had told them, we understand you guys are young, but still, you’re breaking the law, and we can’t let you do it anymore,” Midway Police Chief Kelly Morningstar explained. “The law is the law, and we have to be consistent with how we enforce the laws.”
All they needed was a permit…which costs $50 a day. The water park ticket is $27.
