OMGoodnes, what a waste! We saw the video on the news, and i got mad, because they're trashing perfectly good cookies that can be sent to our troops, and given to the homeless and food pantries. Donate any cookies that are left!

It is better to toss the cookies in the trash......The Troops don't need all this sugar poison..
Send them something of real value other than junk sugar cookies......

Thanks for speaking up - you obviously grew up in a generation that cared - waste not, want not. Emma needs the support and wisdom of elders like you.

I want to see you thousands of miles from home with nothing but sand and death waiting around any and every corner, Charles. Then I want someone to consider sending you something to remind you of home, then saying, "Nah, this is the bad part of home.. cookies are evil and they don't need this." You, sir, are a dick.

@Charles Kevlin--I really don't know how to properly respond to this "Holier than thou" attitude, other than - I am really glad that Philadelphia is not in America. If it were, I would not be surprised at anything that happened.

This girl is exhibiting all the values she is supposed to learn as a Girl Scout, but they want to kick her out? There is something very wrong with that!

I hate to say it, but this reminds me of what the boyscouts are doing to. I thought that these organizations were about morals and values. I think this is a joke, my kids will not join any troop what so ever. I will teach my kids morals and values on my own. I realize that I am just one person, but I'm going to try my best. Kudo's to Emma for trying to do something that's right

I agree Kelly. Emma worked 12 hours this weekend at booths, selling cookies. After hearing about this petition, I suddenly get a call from Girl Scouts saying Emma is being removed from her troop. It is wrong.

I'm sure the GS are not prepared to handle the situation or the publicity...or they wouldn't be tossing cookies! This is a story to support the organization getting their crumbs together and the GS being reinstated....<3

I don't think GS cookies are food (read the ingredient list...) but I WILL sign the petition now, because that's simply just an evil way to treat this child. She is smart, she has ideas, she needs to be heard. And the troops to whom these cookies could be sent can decide yes or no on consuming them.

Kimberly Reynolds: I suggest forming national organization to fight for her rights as an American and as a Girl Scout. Sue the scum. They make me very angry. Once a Girl Scout, always a Girl Scout. They have shamed me as a Girl Scout.

Let me know. Form it, and I will join.

It costs too much and too much red tape to send to the troops but they should be taken by each troop and given to their local food banks.

Marsha McMichael Stutts

Why do they have the program if they aren't going to ship the cookies to our soldiers? Not sure I want Lexis to continue GS if this is how the leadership thinks!

I am appalled that an organization as large and influential as the Girl Scouts of America can justify destroying all those cookies for all these years when we have troops over in another country fighting for our freedom and starving people in this country.are we really sure that we want this organization teaching are young womenright from wrong going into the future?

The Girl Scouts of America are a part of a gobal group called WAGGGS (World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts) who support the murdering of unborn life aka abortion and the beliefs of Planned Parenthood who also support abortion. I am no longer going to support the girl scouts because of their stand for abortion. Just when you thought signing your daughter up to be a girl scout was a good, wholesome idea...

My mother and sister and I have collectively been involved in Girl Scouts for 57 years. I am thoroughly appalled by this story, and outraged that these cookies are going to waste in such a frivolous way, when they would be so appreciated by our brave soldiers overseas.

Juliette Low would be spinning in her grave, to know the current fate of thousands of boxes of cookies. Thank you.

Hey Emma,
I'd just like to say wow. You go girl! Stay strong and you will win out in the end. I would just like to offer some help. I work for a company called NiceShirt.org and our mission is to make the world a nicer place. And we would love to partner with you and creating an online fundraising to get your message out there! Because the bigger your cause the more influence you'll have to create change in the girl scout organisation!
If you are interested or have any questions email me at [email protected].
Keep up the fight!
Emily
