REALLY? -----Not one of all of those people knew what a $2 bill was? NOT A SINGLE ONE?
Further, okay, say the guy had been trying to pass counterfeit currency. Is that like a dangerous threat? At worst, he's spending fake money. To handcuff him to a pole? Really? I still find it hard to believe that NO ONE could have said, "Yeah, those are $2 bills. They used to be popular but now they're rare. In fact, I'll buy them off of you." Because of being rare, I believe that they are worth more than $2 each.
This is a direct reflection of the FAILURE of our education system as well as a meter on how paranoid, stupid and FEARFUL everyone is. And that is especially dangerous considering that the POLICE had no clue and overreacted. People, the "good old days" of American common sense is gone. This seems to be a form of Nazi Germany now.
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TEACH TO A TEST INSTEAD OF ACTUALLY ***TEACHING.***
