In Midway Georgia the police recently shut down a lemonade stand that was run by three girls.

They wanted to earn some money for a trip to a water park in Savannah, but according to the police they didn’t have any kind of permission to make a lemonade stand.

The license and permits cost $50 a day or $180 a year, so the girls had no chance whatsoever.

“We were not aware of how the lemonade was made, who made the lemonade, of what the lemonade was made with, so we acted accordingly by city ordinance”, the police officers said.

The girls were only from age 10-14 and didn’t understand why they couldn’t sell lemonade but they shut down the stand as soon as the cops told them too because they got scared.

This has happened in other states where families have gotten huge fines for selling lemonade on the street. It’s like the police don’t have anything else to take care of than shutting down children’s lemonade stands?

Use a 540tv line out door camera with a high resolution CCTV video for extra security.
