With all due respect, the money was theirs, and you had no right to take it. The string clearly indicated who's money it was, and you stole the money and deserved to be arrested for theft. Yes the trick is a bit childish... but in case you missed it, these were kids. The trick also has a moral lesson though. Just watch someone's face as they look at the bill. First they look around to see if anyone is watching (they know it isn't their money and they know it is morally questionable to take it). Then they normally try to mask their taking the money by faking doing up their shoe laces or something. Then they grab for the money. The trick is funny because both parties are doing something they know is morally questionable. The kids are making fun of someone else's flaws, and the person going for the money is being greedy and taking what isn't theirs. When the "reveal" comes both people should be able to share a laugh as equals up to no good. Instead you acted like a bully, took money that clearly wasn't yours by force, and then whined online about it. All in all I'd say you got off lightly with being punched in the balls. If they'd been stronger they could have held you down until the cops arrived and arrested you. YDI.
Lmfao. This is such utter bullshit. String or no string, find $20, it's yours. If you find the rightful owner and return it, props for being a good human being. The cops don't arrest anyone over taking $20 bucks off the ground. However they might detain some minors who assault someone until their parents get there.
So it is your "expert" legal opinion that any money left lying around is fair game? I regret to inform you that if you take money that is clearly owned by someone else then you are a thief. If I drop a dollar bill then it is not yours to take. It is still mine. Also, the point of the trick is NOT for someone to take the money. The point is that the money is still demonstrably the kids, hence the string. I just thought I'd give you all a heads-up in case you decide that the tips left on restaurant tables are fair game, or that when someone puts down their wallet it is suddenly fair game. Or perhaps you think that the moment someone steps away from their motorcycle it is suddenly yours to take? My goodness, I am shocked and appalled at the manner in which you CONDONE someone stealing from and bullying kids. Clearly you need a refresher course on the 7th commandment, or the legal system if you're not religious. Go and ask a lawyer and they'll tell you that not only would this get you arrested, but it would also get you put in prison for petty theft (or your local equivalent).
#22 If these kids called the cops, because somone "stoled" their 20$ and would tell them the whole story about the prank and the person who "stoled" the 20$, I think the only thing the cops are gonna do is going to the next supermarket, buy Donuts for 20$ and share them with the kids, as a sign of goodwill, nothing more!
Bunch of little shits. If you pushed/fought back you would've gotten in trouble for hitting a minor. FML indeed.
Lesson Learned, either know when to pull or use a smaller bill. Why wouldn't you use a single?
