Man Ticketed For Selling Girl Scout Cookies With Daughter

POSTED: 8:58 am EST March 8, 2005 UPDATED: 2:22 pm EST March 8, 2005

NEW YORK -- A Long Island man was ticketed in Brooklyn for selling Girl Scout cookies with his 13-year-old daughter.

Hoi Louis was in Williamsburg delivering the cookies with his daughter over the weekend. Louis said it was his old neighborhood, before he moved to Bethpage, and he and his daughter have been selling Girl Scout cookies there since his daughter was in first grade.

At 4:50 p.m. Saturday a police captain and a uniformed officer pulled up to their van as they were unloading cookies. Louis said the captain from the 94th Precinct ticketed him for selling cookies without a license.

The NYPD said the man and his daughter were not delivering the cookies, but instead were selling the cookies from a table they had set up on the street.

The child's grandmother, who was in the van, said her granddaughter was frightened by the police and the girl's father was flabbergasted. © 2005 by The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.

I've seen girl scouts selling boxes of cookies at a number of airports. What gives here?

I personally don't buy Girl Scouts cookies from anyone anymore since their national web site has a pro-abortion statement, since they don't demand the word God be used in their oath, and since their national administration has admitted to being 33% lesbian (and they're proud of it).

Too bad they didn't hold out like the Boy Scouts did. I'm not sure what abortion and lesbian leadership has to do with Girl Scouts, but they let the snakes in the tent and the snakes took over.

George Orwell was right about the Police State.
The question is, what are we going to do about it?

I bet the parent of a girl scout in the neighborhood thought these folks were infringing on "their" territory.

My first thought was wondering if the police captain had a daughter selling cookies in the neighborhood.

It's all PR and fund-raising for a nonprofit that has been INFILTRATED by abortionists and lesbians. Related thread:

Lesbians, yes. I have met a number of their leaders who are lesbians. Abortionists? I doubt that goes beyond their mission statement. Which in itself is a sad thing.

I went to www.girlscouts.org, couldn't find it. Am I looking in the wrong site?

I'd have bought the cookies even without the daughter included. You can get in trouble for that.

Whew! Thank God this criminal was caught and ticketed!!!

IMHO, these Girl Scout cookie-sellers are MUCH more dangerous than say, oh, some terrorists from the Middle East?

NYC licenses for street peddling are reserved for Veterans.
That is why his father was fined. Cause he was not a Vet, and he was depriving a Vet of his livelihood.

Oh well, Ray Barone helped his daughter sell cookies on "Everybody Loves Raymond", and got beaten up by the den mother.

I've seen them in the latest campaign - everywhere. Everyone talks about the thin mints. What else is any good - and what boxes might be best avoided? Just asking an opinion.

Hey, buddy, what are you doing up this early?

Don't you miss rousting all those cub scouts and HS band members selling candy outside Safeways and Skaggs along Buckner Blvd.? Budding terrorists, the lot of them!

Huh. This must be the most important crime the police can enforce in NYC.

Who'd a thunk it?

They just aired this on FNC and evidently they set up their cookie selling table on the sidewalk. According to FNC which may have goteen it wrong, an police officer not in uniform talk them they couldn't block the sidewalk and asked them to leave. Because the officer wasn't in uniform, they didn't believe he was acop and ignored him. He then ticketed the father.

I wonder how long it'll take for all the JBT-butt kissers to show up here and say the cops did the right thing?

You know who I mean. The "cops are always right and never make mistakes" clique that shows up in threads like this.

Samoas rock, unless you hate coconut and caramel.

The fat free lemon coolers are good, and Tagalongs (peanut butter thingies) are good too. Just look on the boxes and decide what flavors you like. Definitely get a box of Thin Mints.
