Jerry Seinfeld Responds After Cop Shut Down His Kid’s Lemonade Stand

seinfeld lemonaide stand

New York — Last Week, Jerry Seinfeld and his son set up a lemonade stand in the family’s East Hampton, New York neighborhood. Seinfeld and son — along with a few neighborhood friends — were raising money for his wife’s Baby Buggy charity. Everything was going well until the lemonade stand had a run-in with the law.

According to Counter Current Newsone of their neighbors called the police to complain. Sure enough, the police jumped at the chance to rush over and shut down anotherlemonade stand. Jerry didn’t want the cops to get away with shutting down their innocent lemonade stand without capturing a chance to make fun of the cops.”

Jerry’s response? The Seinfeld family, along with his son’s two friends, decided to mock the cops by posing for a picture as if they had been arrested.

Jessica Seinfeld’s Instagram followers instantly joined in ridiculing the police for their ‘crime fighting’ activities. ‘What can you do, you live in a seedy town, from the wrong side of the tracks,’ one commenter said jokingly. ‘Lemons are a gateway fruit to bigger and badder things like vegetables,’” Counter Current News documented.

While police shutting down “criminal” lemonade stands is not uncommon, this is the first time a celebrity’s child has been subjected to the overbearing police state in such a petty fashion. In what has become a running joke, children’s lemonade stands are shut down all over the country over permit and regulatory violations.

Further, heavy-handed regulators and their police thugs are now targeting kids for other “illegal” entrepreneurial activities, as well. An 11-year-old girl from Madison, Illinois recently had her illicit cupcake business shut down because it violated the state’s food service code.

Fortunately, some local governments are making moves to avoid similar PR nightmares by “legalizing” kids’ lemonade stands. The Salt Lake County Council slashed much of the bureaucratic red tape required for small entrepreneurs in 2013, making a specialexemption for “lemonade stands and similar operations run by children.”

Still, widespread suppression of children’s activities begs a dismal question: What kind of country do we live in when setting up a lemonade stand as a child results in a raid by heavily armed police officers? What’s next? A SWAT team showing up to verify permits for Girl Scouts selling their cookies door-to-door?

When we place fools in government jobs, dumb laws are made! It's a tax problem, no permit no tax coming in.

We need folks in ALL levels of government to work full time in deleting all these unconstitutional regulatory BS "laws".....time for freedom to ring. Finally a follywood "star" gets the police state treatment from the commie agenda they espouse...wonder which of the liberal "neighbors" complained......

...................and there are a lot of "libtard/sheeple dumbass laws, most of their "gun control" laws that make Criminals out of Citizens, that shouldn't be forced to jump through hoops. I saw some good ones on National Geographic yesterday.  The game wardens were chasing around doing an "investigation" on someone who allegedly did not complete a "hunter safety course", to obtain their "hunting privelidges."  Several years after the fact.  They touted how their job is to "enforce the laws".  We have people in power, like the game wardens who mindlessly enforce dumbass laws. Police state?  No exaggeration.

I blame this on Neuman.

LOL!  Newman!

Such criminal activity should not be allowed my my my what's next for this mafia of street vendors. This is just absurd... When I was a kid we had lemonade stands sold hot dogs but I made the most money mowing lawns,if memory serves me some of the police were our best customers... This today is just nonsense,I remember this nonsense started when some IRS agents insisted some kids pay taxes on their profits and has steamrolled ever since

No lemonade FOR YOU!

I think this story is very sad.  Teaching children business and entrepreneurship is wonderful. I especially compliment Jerry In this case this  because was benefit was charity. With his wealth it would be so simple to just write a check and maybe he is doing that also. Meantime he is teaching kids how to help in  a productive way. I am so happy this story  is getting some attention on line. There is just no common sense in the action that was taken. 

Now, real slowly PUT the lemonade down. ------------------ You kids are real lucky those weren't 32 oz. colas, you might of been shot on sight!

Joseph, that's in New York City where diBalsio is in charge. This is Long Island - a "smart" distance from the city.

Lemonade stands are as American as apple pie. Give America a break from big government and stop raiding lemonade stands on our tax dollars.

Glad Jerry got press coverage. The rest of us just have to abide by the strong arm of government control over every aspect of our lives. Hope they don't decide when I need to die!!!

They have ALREADY done that Jo Ann. It is when you start taking funds from THEIR Social Security/CONGRESSIONAL SLUSH FUND.

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
