#PermitPatty: Woman allegedly calls police on girl selling water in San Francisco

Robert Ruecam, a spokesman for the San Francisco Police Department, told NBC News they did not receive a complaint about Rogers and Austin selling water.

In a video shared on Twitter, a woman said her young cousin was reported to police because she didn't have a permit to sell water.

A viral social media moment involving a white woman reportedly calling the cops on an 8-year-old black girl selling water bottles in San Francisco has reignited a national conversation about racially-charged use of police power and made its way to the Golden State cannabis community.

There was instant comparison to #BBQBecky, Jennifer Schulte, an Oakland woman who called police to report a black family having a BBQ in a park where she said no charcoal grills were permitted.

In a video uploaded by the girl's mother, the camera follows a woman, Huffington Post has identified as Alison Ettel.

Jordan's situation is somewhat of an extension of a previous incident in Oakland where a white woman called the police on a group of Black people hosting a barbecue.

"It was literally nonstop".

Jordan's mom says her daughter was selling water to try to raise money for a trip to Disneyland, something she no longer needs to do because someone heard about the story and donated the money. The reason? Well, apparently it was because she didn't have a permit.

"As soon as I saw it, I put the word out to staff to pull it off the shelf immediately and let her know we weren't doing business with her any more", Jesse Henry, Barbary's executive director, told the Guardian. "People lose it, but you don't lose it on children".

"Its not your property", the woman responds. "They come, they shoot first and they ask questions later", Austin told "Good Morning America". "The lady called the police because I didn't have a permit", said the girl. After Ettel ducked behind a wall, the mother approached her and said, "You can hide all you want, the whole world gonna see you, boo".

"We've been out before with my nieces who are full white and she didn't come out here and they were being way louder than Jordan was by herself", Austin said.

Jordan was selling the water bottles outside the family's apartment building, which is across the street from AT&T Stadium, where the Giants were playing that day, Austin said.

It's something she says she now deeply regrets.

She said she only pretended to call police and that it wasn't over race, but because the girl and her mother were shouting loudly for hours about the water. She told the Chronicle that she's received death threats and sexually violent messages, and that people have tried to get into her building to confront her.
