This story happened in my neck of the woods, and it disgusts me.
First let me link you the article, then I will explain why this disgusts me.
LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB Fox 41) -- A Meade County woman is taken to jail after turning in "Shop With a Cop" toys and clothing for cash.
The Fraternal Order of Police held the "Shop With a Cop" event December 14th. Meade County Sheriff's Deputy Bryan Rogers helped four children find
toys and warm clothes that day.
Deputy Rogers, however, says he was angered to learn that the mother of the children had returned the gifts for cash the following day.
28-year-old Amanda Beard of Brandenburg was arrested and charged with theft by deception under $300. She was taken into custody on Friday afternoon
and placed into the Meade County
Do you know what the Shop With A Cop event is? It is where a cop takes a family shopping, because they are underprivileged. It is where a Cop tries to
bring a bit of joy into the life of a family. It is where the Cop buys GIFTS for this family, and what is a GIFT?
GIFTS come with NO STRINGS ATTATCHED, otherwise they are NOT GIFTS.
I am DISGUSTED but NOT surprised that an innocent gift giving event turned into Jack Boot Nation for this poor mother and her family. She should NEVER
have trusted these cops, and now, we have a family TORN apart because some control freak jack boot got his little feelings hurt and raged because this
mother DARED take her GIFTS and do what she pleased with them.
This is a dangerous program, and a conspiracy against families.
The article does not mention a legal binding contract in which the gifts are only to be used in certain ways.
Once a gift is gifted the giftee needs to BUTT out and get over it.
I feel really sorry for this woman and her family, because the REAL grinch is as usual the --- who tore this family apart because they got angry she
returned a few GIFTS.
Merry JackBoot Christmas, Kids!! The --- put your mommy away, and wow, what a Christmas Miracle that gift will turn out to be.
Maybe the conspiracy is to break up the family so the cops will have ensured future business.
