Three sourpuss Parks Department agents put the squeeze on a 10-year-old girl in Riverside Park yesterday, slapping the tyke with a $50 ticket for hawking lemonade without a permit.
The fine was eventually thrown out and the agent responsible for writing the fine will be “re-training” on the proper procedures, but I hope that the lesson is learned: anyone can abuse their power at any level. I encourage my liberal friends to rethink their commitment to having the government do everything for us. Let’s limit the powers that the government (and it’s bureaucratic army) has available to it.
