Not even in U.S. of A.
You have got to be kidding me!

Here's the article, but a brief synopsis:

A Georgia Department of Natural Resources officer finds a pile of discarded household items on private property. (Unlawful dumping.) While he's going through the debris, he finds an envelope of U.S. Savings Bonds AND a Diamond Watch AND a very nice pair of earrings.

He also finds an old envelope with a name and address. He goes to the address and finds the home of George and Mary Morris. George has passed away, and Mary is in an assisted living facility. It appears that relatives are looking after the house and according to them, the Savings Bonds were thought lost when the house was burglarized. He gives the family the savings bonds, and makes it a point to give the diamond watch and earrings to Mrs. Morris himself.

My thing is this: The article doesn't address how the household items got there in the first place. It kinda implies that they could have been taking during the "burglary" but not really. You're telling me that if I put the envelope with my mother's nest egg in a trash bag, along with her antique diamond watch and her vintage earrings, and just leave it at some in-the-cut ranch, that I may get lucky enough that Officer Friendly here will find my "trash" and return it to me? Knock on my door and say "I'm here to serve, sir. You dropped this. Have a nice life."?

Hell naw. I'll say it: That kind of stuff just doesn't happen to Black people. Even in the AoO. (Age of Obama)
