Police: Michigan girl, 12, brings $20,000 to school, starts giving it away
NBC News ^ | 3/13/13 | Daniel Arkin

Posted on 03/13/2013 7:22:54 PM PDT by Libloather

A Michigan middle school student showed up to class Monday with a backpack stuffed with $20,000 and handed out wads of cash to her friends, officials said.

The unidentified girl, 12, received the money from another child who lives across the street from her parents' house in Taylor, a suburb near Detroit, Police Chief Mary Sclabassi told The Detroit News.

Administrators at The Sixth Grade Academy became suspicious Monday morning when the girl was spotted doling out stacks of $100 bills to her classmates. Some of her peers were given as much as $500, Sclabassi told NBC affiliate WDIV in Detroit.

Yes. Where were these girls when I was going to school. I didn’t even get a Valentine card.

I’m surprised the police didn’t steal it and claim in “might” have been earned from selling illegal drugs.

Obviously they need to find out where the money came from and how to get it back to Obama’s stash

Michigan liberal geniuses are in great abundance in Michigan public schools, but I bet they can’t count past 10.

That has got to be the stupidest 12-year old ever. By 8 or 9, most kids know enough about money to know it’s hard to come by, and you don’t just give it away. On the other hand she may have had very low self esteem and thought that the money would buy her some friends. She has just created untold greief for her parents and herself.

Ain’t that the truth. When I was twelve, the truth would have probably been gotten out of me , but maybe not all the money. I wouldn’t have been giving it away

Dope house, or maybe just a houseful of dopes.

Me too. But I'm still betting some drug dealer is going to be very, very angry.

What's the big deal, here? $500 is more like a sheaf of bills, rather than a stack.

This reminds me of the old Little Rascals episode where Spanky finds the guys money and starts throwing it out the window and all the kids run up and take it.

Now, why would anyone think that the parents of this generous child might be engaged in selling illegal drugs? Most of my friends keep 20 or 30 grand in cash at home in a knapsack. I’ll bet her parents might be Amish.

” Michigan girl, 12, brings $20,000 to school, starts giving it away”

So she’s training to be a politician; what’s wrong with that?

I had a paper route and a bank account when I was 8 and I wouldn’t have given away one cent of it!

I would have deposited it in small ammounts along with my mnonthly newspaper money and kept my mouth shut!

Doesn’t money grow on trees? Michigan governor thinks federal dollars grow on trees and is free.
This shows us the lack of common sense that has become the new normal.
Taylor is also called Taylortucky, actually it is a very large suburb and is quite diverse.

Wow, the teachers looked up from having sex with the students long enough to see the money. Maybe there is hope for Michigan.
