A Letter to the Editor


May 5, 2011

Dear Editor,

On October 28, I was driving on King Street when I witnessed an accident involving an armored vehicle. The money that the vehicle was carrying spilled all over the road. People that were nearby took the money and left. I believe that it was wrong for the people to take the money that did not belong to them. Firstly, it is against the law to take money that does not belong to you. These people can be arrested and sent to prison if they are caught stealing this money. Secondly, taking away the money is a very selfish thing to do.It will hurt the people who the money belongs to. This money belongs to people who need the money to help themselves and their family. Finally, the money may not be insured by the bank. The bank will have to replace the money if it is lost. People who saw the accident should do the right thing and return the money back to the owners.

Yours Sincerely,

Hasnah Abdullah

Dear Editor,

On October 28, I was driving on King Street when I witnessed an accident involving an armored vehicle. The money that the vehicle was carrying spilled all over the world. People that were nearby took the money and left. I believe that people who took the money were right to do it. Firstly, the money is insured by the bank. If the money is lost, it will be replaced. The bank and its customers will not lose any of its money. Secondly, if the money is left lying in the road, anyone is able to pick it up. There is no name and address on the money, so no one will be able to find out who it belongs to. They have a right to keep the money. Finally, it will be difficult to find all the people who have taken the money. There is no proof that they took the money. They will not be able to prosecute them and send them to prison. People need to understanding about the situation and not punish those who took the money. If you were in that situation, you may have done the same.

Yours Sincerely,

Aliyah Abdullah
