'Permit Patty' calls cops on 8-year-old girl selling water

A woman who allegedly called the cops on a young girl of color for selling water on the street in San Francisco has gone viral and not in a good way. This seems pretty run-of-the-mill for any adult who had a lemonade stand or any type of fundraiser as a child.

Alison Ettel has been nicknamed "Permit Patty" and has been trending on Twitter after the girl's cousin posted a video of Ettel hiding behind a sidewalk planter while on her cell phone. Austin said the woman was saying she'd call the cops if they couldn't produce permit.

"This woman don't want a little girl to sell some water, she's calling the police on an 8-year-old little girl", the mother said. Raj was quick to point out the large plot holes in that theory.

"Yeah, and um, illegally selling water without a permit", Ettel says into the phone.

In the 15-second clip, the cousin follows a woman who has been identified as Alison Ettel.

Austin said she thinks the woman didn't believe they lived in the apartment building.

"Its not your property", the woman responds. "It was literally nonstop".

Austin's cousin, Raje Lee, who posted about the incident on Twitter said her cousin was gifted four tickets to Disneyland by a man who heard about the story.

"I have no problem with enterprising young women". She later posted the incident to Instagram.

While there has been a massive outpour of support for the girl, some pointed out that what the girl was still breaking the law.

"In the video caption, she asked people to make the woman go viral under the hashtag "#permitpatty".

"It was two o' clock in the afternoon and it was constant screaming and yelling, I was completely stressed out at work and that's not an excuse", Ettel told Infosurhoy.

"I completely regret that I handled that so poorly".

She said that her complaint had nothing to do with race. That was a mistake, a complete mistake.

The mother referenced #bbqbecky, the white woman in Oakland who called the police on a group of Black people who were barbecuing in a park in April, because she said they were using charcoal in an area that prohibited charcoal grills. "It was wrong, and I wish I could take it back", she told SF Gate.
