The Biggest Douche: Clayton, California Edition

Our douche of the week award goes to Mayor Gregg Manning from Clayton, California. He ordered city police to raid a fruit stand that two little kids (I mean like, little kids here) were running. He cites it as a traffic hazard and some bullshit commerce laws. Check out what Sir Douche himself had to say:

Clayton Mayor Gregg Manning … wonders what Katie and Sabrina might do with that produce stand if the zoning laws weren’t enforced.
“They may start out with a little card-table and selling a couple of things, but then who is to say what else they have. Is all the produce made there, do they make it themselves? Are they going to have eggs and chickens for sale next,” said Manning.

Wow. Unbelievable. You’re such a big man now, Mr. Mayor. What’s next? Vandalism charges for chalk drawings on a sidewalk? Call Gregg Manning directly at (925) 673-7316 and in an appropriate, respectful manner, let him know what you think of his absurd and asinine actions. Justice must be served.

  1. there is alot more to this story than what is being reported. this is not just two littlte girls with a stand. this is really being run by their parents. Only after the city told them to stop was it “just 2 little girls”. they were not the ones driving the the tractor that is parked out front, or the ones outside selling produce every weekend. Sure the girls were outside occasionally but they were not the ones operating the stand. Their father must figure if he says it is just a lemonade and then has people from the newspaper come and take picture of his kids in the yard with american flags on their shirts everyone will think it is just the “big bad city” picking on some kids. The farmers market is litteraly 2 blocks from their house and has been suggested as a better place from them to go instead of the intersection where police routinely sit and wait for people to run the stop signs. Many neighbors have been interviewed by various news group but none of them have been shown so far. Mostly likely because they would like to see this done some where more apropriate.
