The Darndest Thing...

A man in Pennsylvania named William Nickerson called the cops on a group of 7 kids that were peddling a substance door to door in his neighborhood……..lemonade. According to the report:
The responding officer - who was unavailable, whom Viola would not identify, and whose name and badge number were blacked out of the police report - invoked a township ordinance against vending without a permit. What the officer didn’t realize, Viola said, is that the law doesn’t apply to anyone younger than 16.
Of course this became a P.R. nightmare for the town and Sgt. Joe Hagan eventually had to meet with kids to apologize and tell them they could keep selling their yellow sugar water.
