    It seems to me that this might be based on an actual case. I can remember reading in the newspapers about a similar case in Texas.

    That’s exactly what I thought! A very similar incident happened about six weeks ago, in one of the major cities, I think. I should go look it up. Maybe it was Jim’s inspiration for this strip.

    Well it was about 10 months ago, I must have read it late. In Cleveland. I don’t know if the link will show, but if not you can google it. Same situation, cited for littering because a bill fell to the ground.

    Too quick to judge.
    And we are all guilty of this….not just the police officer..
    But, I think that these people must improve..as must all of us..

    If this is one of those cops who earn over $120,000/ year
    with overtime, then dropping a few bucks on the ground
    would probably be thought of as paper and littering.

    That officer would have a hard time proving criminal intent.

    Here in KS south central we are seeing more homeless either asking for money or food sign shows hard times. Due to lack of jobs. Employers will not hire potential workers. I do not find strip funny but sad.

    Given the lower standards today for recruiting cops in order to get more women and non-whites in, they have probably practised equality and lowered them for white guys like this dumb**s who can not tell the difference from dropping a piece of paper from a dollar bill and that a vagrant was near the dollar bill

    Either that or they are looking to get money anyway, which is why they take cops off patrolling crime ridden neighbourhoods, and put two of them (yes two of them) in cars looking for speeders or jaywalkers

    The cop knows something about US money that people voting for Republicans and Democrats don’t.
