Two teens have been arrested for robbing two 9-year-old children at a lemonade stand.
According to the Hillsborough County (Florida) Sheriff's Department, the children were selling lemonade at a stand within an apartment complex on Wednesday. Deputies said Deante Small, 18, and a 16-year-old, approached the children and ordered lemonade.

A verbal argument started when one of the teens said they were not satisfied with the amount of lemonade poured in their cups. This angered one of the 9-year-old victims. He threw a cup of lemonade at teens, according to deputies.Odds are Deante's lawyer will argue the real crime was the nine-year-old white male operating a business without a license.
A police report states one of the teens pushed a 9-year-old to the ground. The teens are accused of stealing an iPod and taking a cup of cash worth $13.53 and spending it at Walmart. The teens ran but were later arrested by deputies. They are charged with robbery, battery and petit theft. Deante Small bonded out of jail Thursday night and now waits for his first appearance.

Moral of the story: never let black people shake you down for a bigger cup of lemonade.
Stand your ground, because no one else will stand it for you.
