Cop busts girl scouts for selling cookies?

Can you believe this? The cop shuts down their sales saying they didnt have a permit to sell their cookies and haul them and the moms to the police dept to clear it up and get permission. But they scared those girls and they thought the moms were in trouble. WTH? I would be seriously peeved.
What do you think>? How would you have reacted?

  • LOL the cop is going to look like such an idiot! Well at lease we all know that group will be selling a shit ton of cookies now that they have the sympathy on their side.
    Do you really need a permit to sell the cookies?

  • If you need a permit then you need a permit.

    Girl Scout cookies are a billion dollar business, they can by a permit to sell to the general public or they can not buy one and sell to family and friends.

  • They were on a street corner. If they need a permit, get it.

  • If they need a permit, they need a permit. I have to say I got my cookie order last night ( Pre made cookies, gah! but it's a big deal for us- I always buy DH a whole case as a treat. I keep some of my birthday money aside each year. He doesn't know that part.

    But, I digress. I got my cookie order at work, and it was like I was waving around bags of crack in a rehab. I had people practically begging me to sell them to them. I'm sure they can spring for the permits.
