This may sound like a ridiculous question, but according to a report on Yahoo! News, Texas cops are indeed giving tickets to 6-year-olds.
What crimes are being committed in kindergarten?

Disrupting class. Fighting. Misbehaving on the school bus.

Horrors!

In the past, these actions would mean a trip to the principal’s office. Today, however, “such misbehavior results in a Class C misdemeanor ticket and a trip to court for thousands of Texas students and their families each year,” according to the story, quoting a document called the Appleseed Texas report.

But this can’t be happening a lot, right? Well … Yahoo! News claims “1,000 tickets to elementary school children in 10 school districts” over a period of six years.

Ouch. Seems a little extreme? What do you think?

This is how Texas gets away with not charging income tax to its residents. And I thought red light cameras were bad.

Not the same situation but kind of reminds me of this:
Pepsi to stop making beverages in Baltimore
The Pepsi plant in Baltimore will no longer make soda, and the company plans to lay off 77 people as officials have decided to stop manufacturing operations — a decision they blame in part on a controversial new beverage tax in the city.
Anything to make a buck... Even if it is at the peoples expense.
