Chances that this woman is on the HOA board?  They have those in the Great White North, right?

I'm sure the police that were dispatched were totally thrilled to shut these kids down.  "Wow, I really feel like I did my job today, eh?"
 
2013-07-03 11:29:39 AM
The neighbor was an ass who should be fined for abusing the 911 system but the mother's not much better.  FTFA:  "But Potter said she defied the officer, this time taking the sign herself and walking out to the corner to advertise the stand...'How can I teach him to do the right thing no matter what if I don't stand behind him and show him, she said."

Cop's doing his job (thanks to old coont up the street) but she's going to show her kid that he can do whatever he wants, regardless.  Then take your outrage to the media.

I used to resell Garbage Pail Kids trading stickers at school back in 7th grade. Hard life. Always looking over your shoulder, never sure if your next customer is an undercover cop. Strictly cash, obviously, and it gets harder and harder to hide all those jingling dimes and quarters from the authorities. An adolescent boy's pants pockets only go out so far, you know? Like I said, hard life. But... I was respected by the other kids, because I ran an honest business, legality notwithstanding. Nobody ever ratted me out. Never got into any fights over territory, either -- I took the GPKs, Big Adam had the BlowPops, and Cray had the titty mags. We stayed out of each other's way, and everybody was happy. By the time the school year was over, I had enough for a skateboard and some pizza now and then. I'm just glad I never did hard time.

I'd say they should pass regulation allowing anyone under the age of 10 to sell good without a permit but that would be abused so very hard.

The police claim they never told her to shut the stand down, so what ever. What I think probably happened is that the cop told them to take the stand down and to go home while he went to talk to the neighbor to defuse everything, then he would come and tell them when it was ok to be put back up. That sounds like something a reasonable cop would do in that situation so he can calm both parties down and explain what is going to happen without having them both on the street yelling at each other. But if that is what happened and the mother said "fark that", then yeah she is an idiot.

brigid_fitch: who should be fined for abusing the 911 system


In some places, 911 is used for both emergency and non-emergency calls to police.  This may be one of those places.


Jim from Saint Paul: Sure sounds like a FarkUs/Kickstarter thread waiting to happen. "Get autistic kid his vendors permit".


Even if they had a permit, they may still have been shut down due to the noise / disturbance complaint.  Standing in front of somebody's house while screaming at passing cars isn't cool.  You get some big colorful signs, you wave and you smile.

According to TFA, the kids do this every year on Canada Day to raise money for a hospital.

I could see a neighbor getting annoyed if they were doing this daily what with the noise and running around and everything, but FFS, they're kids, selling lemonade, on a holiday, for a good cause.

Dear neighbor lady: Why dont you go back in your house, wash the sand out of your vagina, put on some music to drown out the sounds of happy children, and maybe reevaluate your life if this is something for which you'd seriously consider calling EMERGENCY SERVICES.

I used to purchase basketball cards on the underground market. You would not believe how much I would pay for a few Miami Heat player cards - $3 for 10. I remember how happy I was when I got a Jon Sundvold card...

Thinking back, I can only imagine how much danger my life was in. Who wouldn't do anything for a stack of Brian Shaw, Kevin Edwards, and Grant Long cards??

I don't know. Those "happy sounds" according to the article were non-stop screams. Even the officer said so. It's one thing for kids to be laughing and doing an occasional carnival bark of, "LEMONADE FOR SALE!" But going up and down the neighborhood screaming and screaming to the point where even the officer was annoyed, yeah, shut up kid.

What the hell is it with the lemonade stands lately? My neighborhood is thick with them - I see 2 or 3 a week easy - and I've lived there 8 years so it's not like it's just a quirk of the area.

Is it like a hipster thing? Did Oprah recommend some lemonade stand book? Did Mortimer and Randolph sell all their frozen lemonade concentrate holdings, driving down the price?

"No shiat"? If it's so obvious, then why did you ask? It's a pretty universal thing that kids will be loud when outside and playing.

If you can't handle some loud kids for a couple hours, perhaps you should purchase a fainting couch for you nerves.

As a matter of fact Autistic persons DO have particularly loud, penetrating screams.  See "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" or "Rain Man" for examples.  Or maybe you could voluteer at a special needs event.

Burning_Monk: f you can't handle some loud kids for a couple hours


It really depends on how loud they are.

I have two families with young children as neighbors and they often have pool parties.  The kids yell and scream once in a while.  Usually doesn't last more than an hour.  No big deal.

That is NOT the same as having kids yelling at every car that goes by.  And as somebody else in the thread noted, kids with Downs can sometimes lack a volume control.  I have a friend with a mosaic Downs daughter and I can attest to that.  When she gets excited, her internal volume knob goes to 11.
 
2013-07-03 02:03:14 PM
Sgt. Nancy van Rooy disagrees with the account of the parents/kids and subby's headline. Since the police generally have no problem shrugging and saying "just enforcing the law..." and since no cops appear to be in danger of a lawsuit, disciplinary action, or prosecution here, I tend to believe the cops in this case.

Mimic_Octopus: Brittabot: According to TFA, the kids do this every year on Canada Day to raise money for a hospital.

I could see a neighbor getting annoyed if they were doing this daily what with the noise and running around and everything, but FFS, they're kids, selling lemonade, on a holiday, for a good cause.

Dear neighbor lady: Why dont you go back in your house, wash the sand out of your vagina, put on some music to drown out the sounds of happy children, and maybe reevaluate your life if this is something for which you'd seriously consider calling EMERGENCY SERVICES.

fark your happy children. sell that shiat in front of your own house and do it without screaming. every farking craft project your douche bag  offspring wants to perpetrate is not a protected event.  just shut up and go home.  and the lady did go out multiple times and tell him to stop yelling before calling teh cops


Perhaps YOU are the one that needs to go wash some sand out.

KellyKellyKelly: TheGreatGazoo: I have a nephew who is autistic.  His voice is either at 0 or up to 11.  There isn't much in between.

I'd hate to have someone like that yelling outside my window if I had to work the night shift or something.

And of course ALL autistic kids are EXACTLY like your nephew.  No in-between.


Of course all autistic kids are different.  I'm just saying we may not have all of the facts.  If you have some kid outside your window yelling at every car going past at voice level 11, that can get really old really quick.

And yes, my house has windows that close.  They are single pane/lousy windows.  They don't block much.

If it's an hour, you can run to the grocery store or something.  If it is all day then it gets really obnoxious really fast.

Dinjiin: Burning_Monk: f you can't handle some loud kids for a couple hours

It really depends on how loud they are.

I have two families with young children as neighbors and they often have pool parties.  The kids yell and scream once in a while.  Usually doesn't last more than an hour.  No big deal.

That is NOT the same as having kids yelling at every car that goes by.  And as somebody else in the thread noted, kids with Downs can sometimes lack a volume control.  I have a friend with a mosaic Downs daughter and I can attest to that.  When she gets excited, her internal volume knob goes to 11.


I think it's fascinating how this has gone from being an autistic kid hosting a lemonade stand for one afternoon to a child with Downs syndrome standing outside for several days screaming nonstop.  Its like a game of telephone!

Yeah, not gonna click it. Won't ever forget it and was one of the reasons that line stuck out to me.

This time the thought of that older story was occumpanied with the mental imagine of a little 9 year old autistic kid crying and holding a melon baller in each of his little clenched fists getting ready to 'ball his eyes out'......

Got to be honest, not one of the happiest of thoughts.

Now if only there was someone at city hall with a hart and sense of humor should give the kid a permit.
If for no other reason than to piss off the neighbor.

vpb: Everyone's an aut critic these days.


He should have the book thrown at him and do hard time. He defied The Rule of Law! He should have gone through all of the proper channels, as it is he is just a scumbag criminal. Where will it stop? Can just anybody decide to open a lemonade stand now? This is crazy, laws were clearly broken, no one is above the law! Anybody who says otherwise is a filthy apologist for the worst kind of lawless criminal attention whoring pukes!

I'll play devils advocate. Honestly, there are food and safety regulations for a reason. If some kid had a lemonade stand and people became violently ill for whatever reason (the kid sprinkled moms drugs in the lemonade or let it grow bacteria in a jar in the closet for a month) people would be angry. It's only when a kid is cute or developmentally challenged that people give them a free pass. You don't get to break the law because you're a child. Right is right and wrong is wrong.

That picture reminds me of a pr0n I once watched with my ex. The guy was supposed to be a priest -
he had the whole black coat  and pants, clerical collar, etc... He was getting a knobber from some
chick up at the pulpit and as it went on, horns started growing from his forehead. The more the chick
gobbled, the bigger the horns got.

Really bad effects and the Catholic in me was more than a little disturbed.

Electrify: gfid: olapbill: kid needs to learn when to STFU.   Want to sell vaguely lemony water? great.  Your neighbours don't want to hear your ass all day trying  to sell it.

"journalist" needs to learn the difference between balling and bawling , sicced and sicked.

No shiat.  The education system in this country is farked.  And apparently Canadian education isn't much better.

FFS, I have a degree in engineering.  I took ONE literature class in college and I know the right words to use.  How the fark does someone with a job as a journalist not know the farking language?

Sun News is the Fox News of Canada.

/actually at least Fox reports news


This. The Toronto Sun isn't worth a pinch of dogshiat.

So, no charges for calling 911 for a non-emergency?

I was once biatched out by the cops because I called 911 when my car was being broken into.  They said it was a misuse of the system.  If that is a misuse of 911, a kid selling lemonade without a permit definitely is.

I don't know if she's still at in, but there used to be a woman in Chicago who would go around looking for charity raffles and report them if they didn't have a permit. She didn't understand why people hated her for this when she was doing them the great service of saving them from the sin of gambling.

Seriously. What's that woman thinking? The Chicago rule is she's supposed to report the charity raffles for not bribing their alderman.

Yeesh, are you always this unpleasant?

My point is, regardless of how annoying the kid was being (and yes, from the article it sounds like that level was "very". Also, no, I would not let my own child run around the neighborhood screaming his head off - it's obnoxious and the parent should probably have tried to tone them down), the neighbor shouldn't have called 911 about an annoying kid running a lemonade stand for ONE afternoon (on a holiday where there were probably plenty of annoying kids running around screaming already).

I encounter people of all ages who annoy the fark out of me every day - I don't call the cops on them.

Say what you will about the women who called the cops
But if I had kids running up and down the street screaming for attention, I'd call the cops to
And as for the mom
Hey mom, want to teach your kid about doing the right thing?
How about teaching them to abide by rules and to also not being annoying little shiats to the neighbors!

The right way to do this without involving the police is to storm out of your house and yell "WILL YOU ALL SHUT UP I'M TRYING TO MASTURBATE!"

I agree with what you say. But, I thought Gazoo's comment was so funny because my 9 year old autistic boy is exactly like that. Either he's mumbling to himself or talking looooud to someone else. We're trying to teach him to whisper with no luck. I'll be like "ssshh momma's sleeping" and he'll retort "MOMMA WAKE UP FIVE PEE-EMM" and it's just ... Sigh. I wonder if its a side affect of speech therapy, like he has to speak up to annunciate. Dunno.... But I agree, everyone is different. I wonder how common over speaking is with them.
