Everyone's an aut critic these days.
 
2013-07-03 11:17:13 AM  
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.

Don't do the crime if you can't do the time. Why should I care about some law breaking criminal?

At this point I think it would save some time to simply note if any story is about a non-autistic kid.

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.
 
2013-07-03 12:33:57 PM  
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.

Is this the same Canadian woman who reported the Facebook threatener?

I was a arms trader of sorts. Bazookas to be precise. Bazooka Joes to be even more precise. It was life in the fast lane.

Glad that is all behind me now. I even got a permit when I put a deck on my house. Straight as an arrow.

I must have missed something in the article, because I didn't see anything about the kid playing basketball.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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??

Meh, the stand was allowed to keep operating so no big deal.

Just remember the neighbor and make sure she learns her place on Halloween.

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.

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.
