America: You Are Not Free If A 9 Year Old Boy Cannot Lend Books Out From His Front Lawn, For Free

This is the second case of a child, this time a 9-year old, being at the vanguard of individual freedom, liberty and fighting back against the meddling, encroaching bureaucracy of "civilized" nations such as America.

(Remember the Cupcake Crusader I mentioned a little while back...)

"Spencer Collins told Fox4KC he had the idea to create a “free little library” after his mother, an elementary school teacher, saw the idea in another state. The idea is to share books and a love of reading among neighbors by placing books in a clear box, and encouraging others to take a book from it or leave a book in it."

“Reading is one of my favorite things to do. We built it on Mother’s Day as a present for my mom because she really wanted one,” Spencer said."

"However, the family soon received a letter from local officials telling them they must take down their library or face a fine. The letter said the library violated an ordinance that forbids structures on the front lawns of single-family homes."

The busybodies are just following orders!

"Leawood director of community development Richard Coleman said the city isn’t targeting Spencer’s library, but is enforcing a law."

So a 9 year old crusader is going to fight city hall on behalf of all the people who just shuffle around, and let themselves be bullied all the time by busybodies and shrug and say WHATEVERRRRRRR.

I want them to change the law. That’s my main thought. I just don’t like it. I think it’s unfair because it’s really good to the community,” Spencer said."

"The family took down the library Wednesday afternoon so it is no longer in violation of an ordinance and does not face a fine.  Spencer says he plans to address city council at its next meeting."
