This show of force by the DC
Metro Capitol PD was nothing more than that. It was done in front of parents and children specifically to instill fear of what could happen to them should they disobey. Fear, they use fear to coerce people into behaving as they would like.
The government is force and every law they pass is done with the threat of force. That force is now used to intimidate, harass, and stop children from partaking in free enterprise. Not only that but the female officer on more than one occasion attempted to stop the documentation of the behavior of the police. If you happen to find the names of the officers involved, please, post them in the comments.
It’s good to know that given the crime rate in DC the police have nothing better to do that to shut down someone selling lemonade. Especially on Lemonade Freedom Day.
State Sponsored Criminal Count: +4 = 33
Because there is no greater crime than children selling lemonade in the capital of the “most free” country on earth.
