HOUSTON (KTRK) – When you think of felony forgery your thoughts might turn to Al Capone or Bonnie and Clyde shooting it out with the Texas Rangers.
Not for some local school cops. For one day, public enemy number one when it came to forgery was 13-year-old eighth grader Danesiah Neal at Fort Bend Independent School District’s Christa McAuliffe Middle School.
Now 14, Daneisha was hoping to eat that day’s lunch of chicken tenders with her classmates using a $2 bill given to her by her grandmother when she was stopped by the long arm of the law.
I was traveling last week, and I was given a $2 bill for change. I’m not old (at least I don’t think so–mid 40’s) and I know what a $2 bill is. How can nobody between the school district and the bank not recognize a $2 bill?
