A couple of years back some cops in Illinois tried to pull a “rope-a-dope” on an old lady who had a smallish meteorite smash through her roof. She was scared to death and called the cops. They came over and did the whole “oh, this is very scary, we need to remove this “dangerous” item and take it away for special examination. Oh course she was soooo happy to have the nice policemen take that scary rock, (Thank you Mr. police man, thank you thank you) until a relative informed her it would be worth thousands of dollars!!! From what I understand it took a good bit of time and some help from a lawyer to get the cops to “cough up” the rock. Kind of reminds me when old ladies turn in their dead husbands Lugers during “safe street Bull-$&it” programs. How many of those Lugers do you think actually get melted down? Hmmmm?
