We were not aware of how the lemonade was made, who made the lemonade, of what the lemonade was made with,' says police chief in Midway, Ga.

Well how about that. A SMART Chief of Police who doesn't KNOW HOW lemonade is made. Now who stupid can they be? This statement coming from a "supposedly educated" person who qualifies to be Chief of Police based partly on education?? WOW

And here I also thought lemonade was made from LEMONS, SUGAR & WATER using a knife to cut the lemons, a spoon to stir it with, hands or lemon squeezer to squeeze the lemons & a pitcher to pour it into along with water from the "city approved well or water system. Now I ask you. How SMART does on NEED to be to know HOW lemonade is made.

That's just the CHIEF'S EXCUSE for harassing these "14 yr old would be thieves who were CHEATING the city out of "revenue" for permits along with the IRS for income not reported received for an HONEST DAY'S WORK. And we sit back & wonder what the hell is wrong in this country of ours?

The badge the Chief wears needs to be displayed on her head because the job has certainly went there already. Any excuse is better then none I guess when it comes to "throwing her weight" around to show everyone "she means business" while the druggies NEVER get caught.

So, let's see, it is apparant that Casey Anthony murdered her child, yet the jury cannot find anything to convict her on, but a 10 year old girl is busted for selling lemonade. I guess we have got to crack down on the worst criminals first.

I hope people wake up to this tyranny. I hope that the kids ask for a jury trial and the jury comes back with a not guilty verdict. Stand together .They won't enforce laws they can't get an conviction.Let the City burn up court time and money.That jury will be role models for the country .I say no harm ,no foul

Ok..its time to wake the hell up America! This weekend..here is what I would love to see happen. 500 14 year old girls..open up lemonade stands in Midway GA. Kids need to learn at a young age to be activists..to stand up for themselves..and sometimes..to teach adults(in law enforcment) what is just plain right.
Video everything...interview the police coming to shut down the stands..ask them to quote their oath of law enforcement..
IF..we don't do things like this..knuckleheads like this Morningstart woman will keep doing this.
Whats next..kids mowing lawns will be interrogated on how much they made?
What happened to the courage of Americans?

While filthy drug dealers and pedophiles roam throught the streets and illegal aliens invade us the progressive society we have now goes after little girls for selling lemonade.

It's amazing how much liberalism can destroy a country.

Welcome to 21st century America.

I hope the citizens of Midway, GA. remember this when their Police dept. needs funding. Obviously the officers do not have enough real police work to do, or the town is THAT crime free, so cut their funding or remove a officer or two. Ya just can't fix STUPID!!

Well this is what happens when the government wants your money. They didn't get a permit, I am sure they didn't charge taxes. Oh and what about insurance for the employees. This just shows the government is anti business. If the government is not getting their part taxes.

You are so right friend. Americans laughed when they said the government was going to make you buy insurance. Americans Laughed when the government said they was going to make you wear seat belts. The people laughed when the negros said they were going to overcome. The people laughed when the president said they had to separate and take America apart.

American citizens WHERE ARE YOU? America is going to hell and all you young so called Americans are doing is getting fat and giving your way of life away for nothing that all of us old people died for. SHAME ON YOU!

They don't know who made or what the hell's really in Taco Bell but they let them sell it!

I can actually see why the law is there. They should add a section that allows lemonade (or similar) permits for kids for $1. Then they wont look so stupid.

Too many lawyers folks!
