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.
