A woman was given $12,000 as a tip. The waitress ran out and the woman who left the tip told her to keep the money I’m not sure why she would involve the police. My suspicion is because that’s what we’ve always been told to do. What is unsurprising is the police departments reaction.
Officers told the woman to wait 90 days in case someone claimed the money. The Forum reports that after three months, police told the woman the cash was being held as drug money.
See, the officers don’t want to loose that money. Honestly they probably already spent it on hookers and blow. Then again they can just get the blow from the lock up, so just hookers then.
Ultimately this is yet another example of why you don’t involve the government and police anymore than necessary. They are more than willing to take property that is not their just because they can. They take it and keep it using any excuse that fits their fancy, more often than not it’s drugs.
I don’t like drugs, I wouldn’t do drugs even if they’re legal. That said they should be legal for no other reason than I’m sick of people trampling my rights, freedom, and liberty because someone wants to do something in the privacy of their own home. Let’s cut the BS about accidents, DUI is already illegal, and as harsh as I sound an overdose is just Darwin doing some spring weeding in the gene pool. The “War on Nouns” is nothing more than an excuse to violate the rights of people for victimless crimes. If someone wants to destroy themselves that’s their business.
Look at the CATO map which is nothing more than a graphic display of the innocents who are casualties in this “War on Nouns”. Remember, when someone talks about outlawing drugs they’re either trying to secure their cash flow or they want to further the police state.

The cops are not your friends. The cops are friends of the cops.
You might think we’d learned something from Prohibition, and you’d be right. Problem is; that particular thing “we” (government) learned from Prohibition isn’t what you would hope. What government in general, and communists in particular, learned from Prohibition was that there is a huge river of money and a lot of power to be gained from enacting vice laws or banning this and that. It fits beautifully into the whole Alinsky, Cloward/Piven/Van Jones/Obama tactic of creating social unrest and conflict, too.
When things really bad, they can be the ones to “fix” the whole mess by “Fundamentally Transforming America”. In the meantime they and their drug kingpin friends, the cops, the DEA, the lawyers, America’s enemies abroad, et al, are raking in the dough and laughing all the way to the palace.
We are a bunch of suckers.
Well, they’ve just ensured that she’ll never trust the cops again. Good job!
And talk about a flimsy pretext! I would bet money that 90% of the cash in circulation has been “in the proximity of a controlled substance” at some point. Plus, their only “evidence” is that they claim they can smell marijuana on it, and a dog “alerted” on it (probably because the handler wanted the dog to).
Rule 1: Don’t talk to the police!
