First thing I would be doing is suing that bitch pig for more than just assault. She put her hands on the canmeraman twice. That's assault AND battery.

There should have been a citizens arrest right there for that discusting POS. Frack her. If she put her hands on me and denied me my right to liberty.........she would be getting denied her right to life either on scene or afterword.

More people need to stand up to tyrany.

I'll say it again. ANY pig who takes my right to liberty better watch out because when I am a free man again, they will lose their right to life. Period.

I see some people here are missing the point and don't know the back story. This Lemonade Liberation Day was in response to the Georgia lemonade stand ran by small girls. The police shut it down. On facebook over 5,000 people responded and pledged to hold lemonade stands all over the nation to raise awareness. I've seen several pictures of the events that took place. Not all of them had police involvement but some did. Several of them involved cops who purchased the drinks, spoke of fond memories and then wished them luck. Others only asked the participants to "remove their sign from the phone poll" and nothing more.

The only event that resulted in arrests to my attention, was this one involving Adam Kokesh's group of friends. (all of which are on my facebook page) They were each charged with one count of failure to obey a police officer, unlawful conduct, and vending without a permit.

You can check out the story on FOX News' page -
Three Arrested on Capitol Grounds for Illegal Lemonade Stand (btw, I hate FOX)

As for them selling from private property? They were selling from the capitol grounds!! Who do you think owns this property??


Anyway, there is additional information as well as lots of videos about this event on my thread.

I think you missed the point.


Wow....You really are full of yourself.
So, because I offered a view you don't agree with I must have "missed the point". Watch the video again. I see an organised group of adults purposefully seek to be antagonistic towards a law that they don't agree with. My post was in reference to the reason for their actions and I stated that I was merely offering a different side to the story.


We have become so over regulated and so indoctrinated that we (you) are stupid enough to defend these actions because you have been sold though a constant barrage of propaganda that it is necessary. Too many laws & too many rules means we spend too much effort & money producing nothing useful.


As I previously stated, I was merely offering another side to the story.

In this situation I agree with the way the police handled the situation. The people were warned before the police did anything. The group in the video continued to sell lemonade after being told that they had to "pack it up".

If the grounds depicted in the video were suddenly overrun with people selling their wares, would you still say that this was acceptable behaviour?

Fair go for everyone.....you can't single out one group and say that they may operate outside of the law and then expect everyone else to follow legislation to a "t".


How many people really get sick from kids lemonade stands every year? I doubt there is enough to even keep track of.


This has to do with what in my post?


Lemonade stands that 99% of will be set up one or two weekends a summer that present little or no real threat to any legitimate brick and mortar business - just another weak argument.


So if I own a business and a bunch of kids set up a lemonade stand out the front and kill my business for that day....Can I get a day of free rent from my landlord? Can I tell my staff that I don't have to pay them because I didn't break even that day because of the lemonade stand?

Think about it for a second....Just say the kids sold 100 cups of lemonade for 10cents each. They have just grossed $10. This may seem like a pissy amount of money that the business will lose but that is 100 potential customers that could have walked into the business and brought 100 cans of soda for $1.50 each which equates to $150 in sales lost. Given that most business work on roughly a 50% GP, there is one employee's wage and probably the days power bill accounted for in that $75 of GP lost.

Is it fair that a legitimate retailer should take a hit in his/her days takings because some kids want to make a few dollars?

Just say those kids only set up their stand twice a year in the summer months. That's $300 lost from just one group of kids playing shop. All for a grand total of $20.

Who has to wear the lost $300? The retail owner.

There is no such thing as insurance for money lost due to lemonade stands.

What's next?

Church fundraisers that wash cars? Cause you know the car washes lose tons of money that day.

Church bake sales? Cause the local bakery loses money that day.

Really.......what's next?

My post was with respect to a lemonade stand set up out the front of a business.

Did you read my original post?

If a church set up a car wash out the front of a legitimate car detailer.....Would you consider that fair?

If a church had a bake sale on the pavement outside of a bakery.....Would you consider that fair?

Read my original post.....I am all for kids having lemonade stands.

Where the lemonade stand is located was what I was referring to.

Just as setting up a lemonade stand on capital hill.

My post was in reference to location.

Ah, so you are sticking up for the "legitimate" nose picking hot dog vendors at capitol hill then? Hmmm.....I have nothing more to say then.

And yes, I've seen them pick their nose before and serve a person a hot dog afterward.

That is impossible.

Their permit would have prevented it. Somehow.

*It seems like what you are implying here is that a person can still pick their nose or have poor health and safety practices after they get a permit. This is horrible news if true.
