When Life Gives You Lemons
JOHNSTOWN, Pa.—Ten-year-old Anthony Sanders wanted to buy a PlayStation 4 when the console launches later this year, and set out to fund that purchase through the quintessential childhood enterprise: a lemonade stand. Then an older boy with robbed him with that quintessential childhood weapon: The BB gun.
To his credit, Anthony was back out selling again the next day and, no, he didn't lose everything he'd made. ..
As for the perp, he was tracked down thanks to other neighborhood kids and is expected to be prosecuted in juvenile court. Witnesses said the alleged robber brandished the BB gun and threatened to shoot Anthony if he didn't hand over the money. The two wrestled over the money box, which the older boy took, and fled after trashing the stand. Police say he only made off with $30.
$30 is a fucking waste to go to juvie jail over! That's barely like a tiny PSN download game right there. Buy a couple of themes cuz fuck it.
And well, there's a couple more Police Blotter stories they have in that link. That 2nd one is alright. Eh.
But hey, have any of you ever done the Lemonade Stand bit, before? Bought some Pokemon cards or something?
