This article just reinforces my opinion that people are stupid, and that would be about it, except for this interesting quote:
For Baltimore County police, said spokesman Bill Toohey, "It's a sign that we're all a little nervous in the post-9/11 world."
What the fuck does someone using $2 bills to buy a fucking car stereo have to do with 09/11??? Do terrorists often use $2 bills? Somehow, I doubt it, since I would imagine they don't like to draw attention to themselves. And why would someone counterfeit $2 bills and then use 57 of them at the same time, that doesn't make any logical sense at all. If you thought they might be counterfeit, fine, take his name and address and then investigate, and if they turn out to be, then arrest him. What the fuck is the point of arressting someone in this case? Was he going to flee to Mexico with millions of dollars in counterfeit $2 bills? The only reason this was at all suspicous was because it was unusual. It would have been unusual for him to pay with 456 quarters also, would they have arressted him for that? Post 09/11 world or not, people need to use some fucking common sense.
