San Francisco Cops Shut Down Kids' Lemonade Stand

Posted July 27th, 2010 by EternityAblaze

The law is the law -- come what may.

So when the police sergeant in this photo gave the heave-ho to dozens of bell-ringing Mexican ice cream vendors during yesterday's San Francisco Symphony event at Dolores Park -- bell-ringing and classical music do not a mixture make -- he felt compelled to turn his attention upon the cherubic kiddies hawking lemonade and brownies...

...San Francisco Police spokesman Sergeant Troy Dangerfield has a heart, but he also has the city municipal code committed to memory. He cites chapter and verse, explaining how foodsellers must obtain city permits due to health concerns.

Nothing better to do....

If the cops of San Francisco have nothing better to do that to shut down lemonade stands, isn't that a red flag that their police force is too large? They have soo many cops on duty that all the jobs like "actually catching a thief or murderer" are already taken or completed? If that's the case, start sending some cops home early, cut hours, fire dead-weight. For fucks sake, they are wasting money! Oh, right. It's not really their money. Its not actually their overhead they have to worry about. Their money supply is endless. I forgot. Its our money. So who cares?
