As the temperatures start to drop and the leaves begin to change colors, the cravings for bonfires, hoodies, and pumpkin spice anything become stronger.

Autumn is upon us, and so are the trips to haunted houses and pumpkin patches. Something about the smell of funnel cakes and the laughter of the children echoing through corn mazes across the country really make us happy.

As we turn into basic-ass consumers, devouring everything in our path that has been flavored with pumpkin spice, there are people out there who wish to turn our children into criminals.

Yes, you heard me correctly, and No, it’s not some spell from a spell book of any witch. It’s actually the elected officials of some of the towns in Virginia.

“If any person over the age of 12 years shall engage in the activity commonly known as ‘trick or treat’ or any other activity of similar character or nature under any name whatsoever, he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $25.00 nor more than $100.00 or by confinement in jail for not more than six months or both.”

Some are calling this a “needed law” to keep older kids from prowling the streets, taking candy that should go to younger kids.

Some are saying that trick or treating is a better alternative to teenagers throwing parties and doing drugs and drinking alcohol. Keeping them on the streets, but away from “Street” activity.


What are your thoughts? Should a 13 year old be thrown in jail for 6 months, for trick or treating?
