Finders, keepers?

Milan Grundahl is 9 years old, and he's apparently learned to save his money. The Mt. Pleasant boy had saved 150 $1 bills, and decided to buy gifts for his siblings at Wal-Mart. But he dropped the bag containing his life savings -- and a surveillance video shows an adult man swooping down to scoop up the bag before Milan knew what was happening.

The sheriff calls it larceny, and has released this video showing what happened:

Workers at Wal-Mart heard about it, took up a collection, and Milan can expect to see his savings replaced.

The workers at Wal-Mart can barely afford their gas. Why is it always the people on the bottom of the economic pyramid who show the most generosity?

I completely agree with the above comment. I also think its BS that the man who picked up the bag may face larceny charges. Who keeps money in a walmart bag anyway? The kid and/or parent(s) should have kept a better eye on a bag of money and the kid carring it.
