Little Kids Are Getting Busted For Running Lemonade Stands Without Permits... Because Crime Doesn't Pay

When you to the crime, you do the time.

The jig is up on this 7 and 8 year old kids who are profiting off of their communities with illegal lemonade stands. The culprits use their "adorable" looks to lure in passersby, charging $0.25 and sometimes even up to $1.00 for the sugary drink.

The FML staff could not be happier that law enforcement is doing the honorable job of getting these criminals off the streets, especially when this is without a doubt the best use of police time.

All jokes aside, Country Time Lemonade has created a team to help pay fines for kids who are getting busted... aptly calling the team Legal-ade, CNN reports. The company helps the kids who were fined for running the stands without the proper permits. Because hello, if you didn't already gather it from the first half of this article, busting little kids for running lemonade stands is absolutely ridiculous. Legal-ade will cover up to $300 in fees for stands that were fined in 2017 or 2018, and for permits that were bought this year.

"Life doesn't always give you lemons, but when it does, you should be able to make and share lemonade with the neighborhood without legal implications," Legal-Ade says on its website. "That's why we're here to take a stand for lemonade stands across the nation."

They also created this hilarious video that should make any cop busting a little kid feel... pretty damn ridiculous.

When life gives you lemons, quickly hide that shit in the trunk of your car and step on it.... 'cause the law is comin' after you.

From an administration that separates little children from their parents at the border, it doesn't surprise me. Even during time of slavery, it was forbidden to separate the slave mother from her prepubescent children. That means Jeff Sessions is officially worse than a 18th-century slave owner. By the way, how about a Legal-Ade to pay for attorneys to represent all those kids rotting in cages?

There is a non profit organization you can donate to called RAICES that helps reunite children taken from immigrant families.

It's a cute PR move. Gives the company "good guy" cred, and barely costs them a dime because the thing they're protecting kids from almost never happens. It's a little like charitably founding a veterinary hospital for baby unicorns.

except, apparently law enforcement/code enforcement has been buckling down on kids selling lemonade from roadside lemonade stands over the past couple years....
