A Syrian refugee who has been living in Germany since October, found over $160k in a cupboard given to him by a charitable organization.
Police in the German town of Minden say a 25-year-old man who arrived last year as a refugee is their "hero of the day" after he found some 150,000 euros ($166,095) — and handed it to authorities.
The unidentified Syrian man discovered the money in a cupboard he had been given by a charitable organization.
I feel like I have seen this story before. I really don't understand this. There are some protocols when you find a wallet or see someone drop cash. You either walk up to them and give it back, or hand in the wallet to someone better suited to find its owner. There is no protocol when you find a mass quantity of money, unmarked and essentially hidden. Especially when you find it inside of a cupboard that was donated to you.
What are the police going to do with it? Arrest, taser, and harass refugees/immigrants like this guy? I feel like this dude didn't even think when he found the money. How can it not occur to him that he might need that money, when he's getting his furniture donated to him?
Whatever, good for this guy. He made the "moral" choice, it's just too bad that he's going to die from SARS or starvation.
