I was told that would never be allowed, because "then the employees would purposefully make more food and cause extra waste so that they would have something to take home". Sadly there is probably some truth in that.

I remember reading an article a while back that had to do with theft by finding.
A woman bought a briefcase from a goodwill store and and when she got home and inspected the case further she noticed the seems were not completely sewed up so she pulled back the fabric. She found around $100,000 hidden in the briefcase and she deposited the money in her bank account.
Then shortly after she received a visit from the police and was arrested and charged with theft by finding. I'm not sure what happened but theft by finding carries the same penalty as theft so my guess is she is doing jail time somewhere and not a short stay either.
The way the system is set up is a way that makes you have to use your resources to gain anything. No freebies or you may end up in jail. Pretty sad and it shows just how we are all just a number to the system.

Wtf is this crap? It's not found. The original owners abandoned it. Whoever takes posession of it next is the lawfull owner. You cant steal by finding something that has no owner.

so yer company too has that dof in the manger attitude towards those who have the need and the energy to recycle and reuse what is useable?
Everywhere it is the same attitude these days, nobody gets nothing for free....
Everyone has to pay for even the garbage....
Is there no end to the extended possession we feel for our garbage?
how far down the chaain must it go?
Even the garbage dumps do not allow people to pick up discarded items....
if you see some perfectly good iten going to waste, you have to steal it from the dump!
Its called dumplifting i believe its a poor persons crime....

I will make this as clear as I can, NEVER GIVE YOUR NAME!!
ALL "law", that these corporate police officers enforce, is commerce law. If you give no name, YOU DO NOT ENTER INTO A CONTRACT, and the police have NO JURISDICTION. This is EXACTLY how it works folks. I was arrested for an outstanding parking ticket back in december of last year, took me right from my work, he asked me if I was "John Doe", I said no, what you are loking for is a corporate fiction. They arrested me anyway, they will be going to jail when I am done, anyway, took me downtown and tried to book me. The officers there asked me my name, WHY? Do they NOT know who I am? They took me from my work. So I said, if I give you a name am I entering into a contract? They looked puzzled. Asked again. I said I have no name as that would imply corporate title and that would enter me into their contract law. We argued back and forth, I thought they were going to beat the crap out of me. But they didn't, they put me in a holding cell and discussed what to do. They must have called upstairs. I was in there about 2 1/2 hours and they let me go. No name, no contract, and they can't hold you. Unlawful detention!!!!
This is how it works people...wake up. Never give a cop your name, license, nothing. If stopped and s/he asks for your license, you ASK them.....What would I want one of those for? The right to own private property ALSO ENCOMPASSES the RIGHT to use that property so long as you hurt noone, damage no property of others and violate no others right to be. Simple really.
If this woman gives no name, they must let her go. NO VICTIM, NO CRIME.
