    Staggering incompetence and poor judgement. Do these "officers" undergo ANY training at all?
    The problem with common sense is that it isn't very common.

      The only thing that could save these blokes is that fact that she was clearly there with her dad, and it clearly wasn't just outside their house

      When I initially read it I thought it was a girl at the end of her drive or just outside the house and it was a nice gesture. But the Dad knew the guys were going to say to move on, and they had to pack up and go home. Had they moved to a different area to target more festival goers and make more money?

      Yes it is mad that she couldn't sell it but the story appears slightly sensationalised and the guys might not have targeted the 5 year old but instead her Dad

      What if the story had been "Dad encourages 5 year old daughter to sell lemonade on street without a licence to make a profit from passing crowds"?

      I'm inclined to feel the same about sensationalist journalism, they obviously weren't fining the little girl but her dad, that doesn't make it excusable though, how tactless and thick do you have to be to gang up on a little girl and charge her dad £150 for setting up a lemonade stall?

      If 4 cops came at my kids enjoying selling lemonade I would be in the nick when I would expect people selling other stuff on the festival route which plain clothed PCs would be offered. So so wrong I find this

      Correct answer. She may have made a tenner then got to use it or save some

      Council workers, not policemen.
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.
