Check Out What Virginia City Has Planned for Teens Who Dare to Trick or Treat

Published

If you’re a teenager in Chesapeake, Virginia and you’re contemplating going trick or treating this year, you might want to reconsider your plans, because it could end up getting you tossed in the clink.

Yes, that’s right, folks. The city has passed an ordinance code that now prohibits anyone who is over the age of 12 from being allowed to trick or treat, and the punishment for getting caught is ridiculously steep.

You could face a between $25 to $100 and six months in jail.

This is further proof that government, no matter at what level, is inept.

The code also prohibits trick or treating after 8:00 p.m.; those who violate the code “shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $10.00 nor more than $100.00 or by confinement in jail for not more than 30 days or both.”

The city’s website claims police “will focus on making sure the evening is safe for everyone” but won’t be “actively seeking out violations of the time or age limits.”

“[A] thirteen year old safely trick or treating with a younger sibling is not going to have any issues,” the statement said. “That same child taking pumpkins from porches and smashing them in the street more likely will.”

Evan Maguire, the Editorial Associate of the American Spectator and a native of Chesapeake, Virginia told the Daily Wire he was “upset” about the ordinance. “Having an unjust law on the books, even if it’s rarely enforced, is not right.”

Maguire said he reached out to the city and asked them the purpose for the rule. “This goes against our most fundamental freedoms as Americans and I find these penalties downright authoritarian,” he said in his message to the city. “How dare you prosecute kids over 12 for having fun, they’re still kids!”

Listen, at the end of the day, if everyone is being safe and having a good time, does it really matter how old the kid is at your door? Sure, it seems a bit ridiculous to be that age and still trick or treating, but there’s a whole lot worse things they could be doing.

There are so many more important things going on in the world, and yet, these elected officials would rather limit the fun of its citizens with a nonsensical law as opposed to using tax dollars wisely to ensure prosperity in the community.

And liberals wonder why conservatives want less government?

Hillary Clinton Feeling the ‘Urge’ to Run for POTUS, & Defeat President Trump In November

Trump would welcome it…

Why is Hollywood and the media still so in love with Hillary Clinton? Sure, okay, Clinton went from first lady of Arkansas to first lady of the United States to senator to secretary of state to presidential nominee. From that standpoint, she has lived a pretty amazing life. But that’s not why celebrities and the MSM cares for her. They just have a sick obsession for anybody who hates Trump. After all of Clinton’s lies and deception, you’d think they’d finally move on. But no. From The Hill: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a recent interview that she feels “the urge” to beat President Trump in the coming election, and pledged to everything she can to “help elect the Democratic nominee” this year. Clinton’s comments came in response to a question she was asked in an interview with Variety at the Sundance Film Festival, where her docu-series “Hillary” is appearing. During the interview, which was published on Tuesday, a reporter asked Clinton if she ever feels “the urge to think: ‘I could beat Donald Trump if I were running.’” Clinton bellowed, “Yeah. I certainly feel the urge because I feel the 2016 election was a really odd time and an odd outcome.” She screeched, “And the more we learn, the more that seems to be the case. But I’m going to support the people who are running now and do everything I can to help elect the Democratic nominee.” Reactions: https://twitter.com/ArchieBunker19/status/1222221464226750469?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1222221464226750469&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2020%2F01%2F28%2Fhillary-clinton-certainly-feels-the-urge-to-run-against-donald-trump-in-2020-because-it-was-totally-odd-that-she-lost-in-2016-video%2F https://twitter.com/back_ttys/status/1222228028845182977?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1222228028845182977&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2020%2F01%2F28%2Fhillary-clinton-certainly-feels-the-urge-to-run-against-donald-trump-in-2020-because-it-was-totally-odd-that-she-lost-in-2016-video%2F https://twitter.com/back_ttys/status/1222223088684818432?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1222223088684818432&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2020%2F01%2F28%2Fhillary-clinton-certainly-feels-the-urge-to-run-against-donald-trump-in-2020-because-it-was-totally-odd-that-she-lost-in-2016-video%2F On James Corden’s late night program, the former First Lady ripped into the president’s personal attorney like she got paid to do it.

Millions of Dollars From Joe Biden’s 2008 Campaign Went Directly to His Sister’s Consulting Firm

Seems like Biden helped out a number of family members financially…

It would seem that Joe Biden used his power as vice president to make many people in his family very, very wealthy. That is what malfeasance and true corruption really looks like, in case Democrats were still wondering. Imagine if Donald Trump Jr. was put on the board of a foreign gas company and made millions. Picture Ivanka Trump funneling money from her father’s campaign to her own clothing line. Would the media care then? Would their ears prick up? Here’s the latest on Joe, via Breitbart: Valerie Biden Owens, the sister of former vice president Joe Biden (D), who served as the campaign manager for his past presidential campaigns, directed $2.5 million from “Citizens for Biden” and “Biden for President Inc.” to her own consulting firm during her brother’s 2008 presidential bid alone, Breitbart senior contributor and Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President Peter Schweizer’s investigative blockbuster Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite reveals. Biden’s political tenure, as Schweizer’s book extensively details, has largely remained a complicated family affair, resulting in little-known financial benefits for not just his son Hunter Biden, but for his sister Valerie. Biden must not realize that the internet is forever. He doesn’t understand that words he has said on camera years ago will come back to haunt him. Recently, Joe pretty much owned himself when he was caught in a pretty damning lie. His smug attitude didn’t help matters, either. The problem here is that most of America will never see this story unless President Trump gives it a retweet. After all, Joe has the MSM in his back pocket, as does every liberal in America. From Fox News: DUBUQUE, Iowa — Joe Biden is the only 2020 presidential candidate who was in the White House Situation Room as Navy SEALs…
