No good deed...

I just found this story: "Finders Aren't Keepers in Chicago"

Apparently, a woman finds $2,000, turns it in to police with the understanding that if it's not claimed in a month, she'll get to keep it. After a month, the police department -- believe it or not -- decided they should keep it.

This telling quote is from Chicago station WFLD's coverage of the story:
"When the city is unable to find the owner, found money becomes the property of the City of Chicago to enrich the citizens of Chicago, not just one person who happened to find the money."

It's just more evidence that the government is run by people who are just as greedy as they accuse those in the public sector of being.

Like C.S. Lewis said:
"The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
