    They weren't prosecuted for anything.

    And its not against the law to shovel snow for money in New Jersey (or most anyplace else.)

    The problem is they were going door-to-door offering their service with a permit to do so. Which apparently violates the local municipal ordinance regulating direct sales.

    If they'd simply tacked up a flyer at the local supermarket or Church, or put up a website offering their services - there would have been no issue.

    Many municipalities have ordinances regulating (if not completely banning) door-to-door sales. For better or worse, its a consequence of living in a democracy, where people get to decide what rules they have in the place where they live.

    And kudos - if anything - to the police for simply giving these young shoveling entrepreneurs a warning, rather than issuing a citation.

    Looks like your typical overreaction over nothing.
