Good cookies shouldn't be wasted. Not to mention being dumped in a landfill somewhere taking up space and costing tax payer money.

Hold your head high Emma. What you are doing is ethical and right. Many people today have no heart or soul and you have it all. You should be proud. The best idea is to send it to the troops or food banks. Girl Scouts should be ashamed of themselves. It's all about the money. They don't stand for what is right when dumping cookies. I'm proud of you Emma and thank God their area people like you left in this cold world.

Every troop and area is different. It is sad that this happened, but I know for a fact that our area donates all the leftover cookies. I think some adults let the 'power' of being a 'leader' go to their heads :p

I am of many opinions here:

1) Cookies are not food. White sugar is a dangerous drug.
2) Therefore throwing out unsold Girl Scout cookies is not destroying food. The media is desperate for news if they call this a "scandal."
3) Even if she is legally a child, she has a constitutional right to express her opinion. She should not be oppressed by the national Girl Scout administration by being thrown out of her troop. And the national Girl Scout administration does not have the legal right...

And the national Girl Scout administration does not have the legal right to declare that a girl may not talk to her friends in her former troop. Preventing her from doing so is a violation of her civil rights. I suggest her family sue the national Girl Scout administration for violating her civil rights as an American.

As a former Girl Scout and Girl Scout Leader, I am ashamed of this manufactured controversy. Throwing a girl out of scouting and forbidding her to communicate with her friends still in scouting is monstrous.

Perhaps I and other people like me should sue the Gil Scout national administration for making us so ashamed to be Girl Scouts.

It seem that exhibiting the values that they teach in the girlscouts will get you kicked out if it threatens profit margins.

I support and buy plenty of cookies every year and find that totally offensive, not only that who are they to tell Emma she cant contact her friends in the troop? This is America last ive checked I would be dammed if that was my daughter.

SO , just who is running our world? Only those that will destroy or hoard to keep prices up? sounds like the dog in the manger.

If you do a little research on the ingredients of these cookies, they're probably better off in the dump than in the bellies of troops or homeless people. There was just a big expose on how incredibly unhealthy those things are. Maybe girl scouts could start by makiing them a healthy choice, instead of toxic.

Very good cause, hope this young lady has her day to stick it to this council who must be piss poor morally. Hey California, when are you going to pull your heads out of your asses?
