Someone's car is insured, someones home, does that mean it's also perfectly fine for you to steal/damage it?


Of course not. Don't be ridiculous.

F### the banks. They want to charge people 5% just to keep money in an account, confiscate it if the account is left alone for a period of time. They snitch on people if they want to withdraw/deposit $5k or more, regardless of the reasons for the transaction. Banksters are crooks of the highest order, ripping off people since the inception of the idea of compound interest, and only getting a slap on the wrist when they get caught at shenanigans, regardless of how many lives they have destroyed. The great depression of the '30's was caused by them, as was the crash of 2008.

What if the money was going to restock a bank to be able to give cash to account holders?

What if the money was coming from a privately owned business to be deposited into a bank?

I recall you criticizing (and you were right to) a police officer for taking money from a crime scene in a thread you posted a while ago.

Don't be a hypocrite.


OK back to this .. how can you compare a cop stealing from a dead guy to people picking up money off the side of the road?

You have never found money on the street and put it in your pocket?

Is it the amount you find that makes it stealing?

Well, human beings can justify anything to themselves. For example an internal thought might go like this:

It's not your money! Well, lets think...I'm getting screwed by the "man" who takes my money all the time. They OWE me. . . so I guess it is MY money!

Well, the authorities aren't going to see it that way unfortunately.

Completely different issues to the thread.
This is about theft of something that doesn't belong to you, simple as that.

And lets not also forget that you have a choice of who to bank with.

People subjugate themselves like that because they are frikin broke. Alot of them are broke because of banks


I am no fan of the "system", don't get me wrong. There are a lot of people struggling, but I don't believe these are those people.

Come off it, when most Americans talk about their "financial struggle" what they really mean is they're now shocked and appalled that the massive house they bought, the three cars they run, the pointless college funds for two kids who won't benefit from it, are suddenly beyond their means.

Meanwhile, people already struggling to get out of genuine hardship lose the home they work three jobs to afford.

I feel pity for the people who don't have their own home, who live month to month struggling to get by while saving whatever they can. I find it hard to feel pity for the many millions of Americans who've lived far beyond their means for years and got themselves into massive debt. If we're honest about this, we know a lot of people who complain about the big bad banks are really just people who never saved, spent far too much money on things they do not need, and then complain when the lifestyle they're used to is no longer viable.

Not everybody would take the cash. There are still some honest people in the world.

Yet the banks stole it from the tax payer anyway so surely its returning stolen property.

It's insured.



So the insurance company pays the claim. But the insurance company is in business to make money just like any other business. Where do they get their money? From us, the ones who pay the premiums. The more claims the insurance companies pay out, the higher the premiums we pay. At the end of the day, it's us that those thieves are stealing from.

For the sake of argument if you knew the source of the money it is stealing..finding a random bill on the sidewalk no.

What if it wasn't the banks money?

Armored trucks pick up from all kinds of businesses.

As voncloud stated there is a difference between stealing large quantities of money from a known owner as opposed to finding a dollar on the sidewalk.

You said if you found a wallet with money you would return it to the owner.

They knew who this money belonged to at the time. Furthermore, there is a strong chance that the money came from private businesses and was being transported to a bank.

They should of returned it.

To be honest if I ever find anything worth picking up on the sidewalk ($1 or more) where I can't find a owner I put the money in one of the many donation bins inside gas stations, restaurants, etc.

Its not the banks money until they sign for it and even then it still belongs to the depositor. I drove and was guard for an armored truck company and the only people responsible for that money are the individuals who signed the ticket for it which would be the guard who went into the business to pick it up. Insurance would cover any losses except for the two or three people losing their jobs because of the foul up.

It wasn't a bad job but didn't pay a lot considering how much money I use to handle which was about 10 to 12 million each day and one day a week on a Fed Reserve run we would have 30 million plus in old money that we would carry to the reserve bank and exchange for new money. I use to hate the casinos because it was mostly coins which are heavy as all get out compared to bag of a million dollars...it was all just heavy crap after a while. And way too many polygraph test as money did come up missing from time to time mostly due to bad counting from the person who sealed the bag....my motto was as long as it was sealed and didn't have a whole in it then it was as I found it to be.
