Woman calls police on young girl selling water without permit

The little girl was selling bottles of water, to raise funds to go to Disneyland, in front her apartment building near the AT&T Park stadium in San Francisco when the woman made a decision to call the police.

"An 8-year-old selling water in front of her apartment building where she's lived her whole life is NOT a reason to call the police", the woman captioned the video.

The internet has taken that and run with it, comparing the woman to "BBQ Becky", who called police on a group of black people barbequing in an Oakland park last month.

"You can hide all you want", Austin said. These kinds of racist calls to police are quite common.

As of Saturday evening, the video, which was recorded the previous day, had been viewed over 2.5 million times and retweeted almost 39,000 times. She thanked everyone who showered her and her daughter with support.

The young girl can be seen in a second video shared selling bottles of water from a cool box.

And the Danish Maersk Line, the world's leading shipping container company, said one of its vessels rescued 113 migrants off the Italian coast on Saturday.

A video showing a white woman in San Francisco reporting an 8-year-old girl to the police for selling water without a permit has gone viral, with people calling out the woman, dubbed 'Permit Patty, ' for racial bias.

"On my property", the girl's mother said. Austin said the woman was saying she'd call the cops if they couldn't produce permit. Ettel responds "it's not your property".

The little girl's cousin tweeted footage of the incident, referring to the complaining woman as #PermitPatty.

She also said the police never showed up and she will be pursuing harassment charges against the woman.

The woman tells the person filming the girl doesn't have a permit to sell the water.

Ettel said she asked the building security to intervene but to no avail.
