Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Girl Scout Cookies -- they make buyers bounce checks to afford them, grown men steal cash boxes from cookie stands (more than once!), troop leaders embezzle over $10,000 in cookie profits, and women attack roommates over a box of Thin Mints.
Walmart parking lots -- where apparently every crime in America is happening.
So what happens when you combine the most crime-inducing sweet treat of all time and the physical nexus of hundreds of violent crimes a year? A "bar room brawl" level melee that left tables overturned, boxes strewn on the sidewalk, and three cases of cookies destroyed. Oh and a dad went to the hospital, too.
"I've seen bizarre incidents," Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly said this week. "But this one -- in front of Wal-Mart, over Girl Scout Cookies -- is right up there." When those comments come from a law enforcement official in the state of Florida, they carry some weight. And Staly isn't wrong. Here are some juicy details from the Daytona News-Journal:
Daniel Kennedy, 18, was charged with three counts of simple battery and one count of disorderly conduct. His 16-year-old brother (unnamed because he's a juvenile) was also charged with one count of simple battery and one count of disorderly conduct. Proving, once again, that destroying a Girl Scout Cookie stand is the wrong way to go about debt collection.
