Are baby shoes evil?

A barefoot baby and her mother were kicked out of a Burger King by the restaurant's manager in St. Louis, Missouri. Jennifer Frederich brought her baby daughter into the restaurant barefoot and ordered food. The manager told her, "you can order 'to go' but you're going to have to leave if she doesn't have shoes on, it's against health code." Frederich said "...She's only 6 months old, she doesn't walk. She's not touching the ground." The manager insisted she put shoes on the child and threatened to call the police.

Ok, so I get why the mom would be pissed, but she said her baby didn't even "own shoes." Even before my kids walked, they had some kind of soft soled shoes or booties. Yeah they kick them off all the time, but we HAD them. I am not defending the idiot Burger King manager at all, just wondering when people stopped buying baby booties?
