"But poor Danesiah Neal, an eighth grader at the Christa McAuliffe Middle School, just outside of Houston, may have had the most traumatic lunch lady experience ever. That’s because she tried to pay for some chicken tenders at her school cafeteria with a $2 bill—a legit but not-very-familiar form of US currency—and seriously had the cops called on her. Cops who apparently also didn’t recognize the bill and decided to question Daesiah.
“I went to the lunch line, and they said my $2 bill was fake,” the eighth-grader told KTRK-TV. “They gave it to the police. Then they sent me to the police office. A police officer said I could be in big trouble.”
The student claimed she got the bill as change from a purchase at a convenience store. A team of Houston detectives took the $2 bill to a nearby bank, which said, yup, it’s legit."
Maybe Cruz could start printing Texas money again.

As a normal athlete I do not want to eat all the food the airlines give me the minute they serve it. So...
I had saved the banana that KLM had given me while on my way from Europe, so what comes next when I land in the US? Some prick TSA telling me I can't bring fruit from Europe, he then hand-searched my backpack even though it had already gone through the x-ray, and then he threatened me by saying he could have me arrested and that there would be a fine.
Being I was too tired from the 9-hour flight I was being really nice and complied saying I understood why we can't bring fruit from out-of-country, so he just left it at that. But man...
I remember when flying used to be fun!

Here in Eugene a cop saved a pup from getting the crap kicked out of it by some drug user, and now the cop is willing to adopt the pup. (The pup may need special care.)
Don't know if this link will work on your end, but I've been following the story somewhat closely.
I can't argue that and I agree. I think too often cops forget they are sworn officers of the law/court. But I think most of the time you only hear about the bad ones in the news because it makes for a juicier story, the positive stories can be hard to come by.the delgados wrote:
Please don't get me wrong; there are many instances where basic human decency and kindness transcends the uniform the cop is wearing.
That said, there are way way too many instances in which people feel the state sponsored uniform allows them to commit heinous crimes with impunity.
