Cops Shut Down 8-Year-Old Girl’s Lemonade Stand


A new trend has been rising in San Francisco and the city has been fighting all the way. Food carts are an alternative approach liked by citizens and disliked by big business. I hear the city finally said licenses can be issued to food cart vendors because of public pressure. The last I heard the license costs about $1000 each week. SF is owned by a few assholes who have lived here and owned parcels of real estate (and businesses) for a few generations and the world has to go around them not to upset them and their interests.

In an effort to raise money to haul her family to Disneyland, 8-year-old Daniela Earnest and her stepmother decided to build a lemonade stand at an intersection in Tulare, where they would sell freshly-squeezed lemonade to passersby. Pretty heart-warming, eh? Well, not to Tulare police officers who promptly shut down the illegal citrus sales operation on Monday. KTVU reports, “[Officer Richard] Garcia told the girl she couldn’t operate because she lacked a city-issued business license.” After catching wind of the dastardly girl’s juice dealing, city Vice Mayor Philip Vandegrift says “the city is now considering requiring lemonade stand operators to pay a nominal fee or waiving the fee for young children after Monday’s incident.”
