Here is an aggravating story out of Dallas, Texas about a kid who discovers $2000 in cash in an envelope and tries to “do the right thing”.
She turned it over to the Dallas police who told her they would give it back to her if they couldn’t find out who it belonged to. Three months went by. Then, as governments commonly do, the city just changed the rules of the game, mid-stream, and decided to keep it.
“We appreciate your honesty,” said Dallas police spokesman Senior Cpl. Kevin Janse. “We’re going to put the money to good use. It’s not going to be wasted, but put to good use for the City of Dallas.”
I’m sure the city will be able to find a much better use for it than the girl who was living in a single bedroom apartment with her parents and four brothers and sisters.
Nice work, Dallas, you sleazy pack of bottom feeding blood sucking assholes.

Nate posted a comment below that includes a link to an update on the story indicating a change of heart on the part of the city. But, after reading the update, I wonder if the city’s initial attempt to keep the cash was even legal in view of the state law.
