It's not the folding that was illegal, subby; it was the crack they also found.

However, the 'folding' will be used to demonstrate likely intent-to-distribute.

Fold what you like, but try not to get caught with the rock and these nasty things are less likely to happen.

this..... way to be full of shiat subby.  If you said apparently in florida its illegal to be a man because its what drug dealers are then that would have been just as accurate.

It's called "folding", and it's illegal.

/obscure?
 
2013-07-04 09:06:36 AM
whenever I see anyone with a big wad of cash I think 'drug dealer'. ditto any young guy in a car with blacked out windows

don't get me wrong, I dont care. It's what I think though

Way to troll, subby.  Born stupid or just work really hard at it?

Drug dealers also poop, I'm told.

Anyone with any amount of money, in any form, has definitely done something illegal at some point in their life.
Best give it to me.
 
2013-07-04 09:13:02 AM
WTF are they talking about?  How does arranging money have anything to do with "intent to distribute"?  This crap about being able to legally determine intent is pure crap.

It sounds like another BS way to make innocent people seem guilty.
 
2013-07-04 09:13:16 AM
Keep the $1 bill flat and unfolded.Fold the $5 bill in half crosswise (with the short ends together).Fold the $10 bill in half lengthwise (with the long sides together).Fold the $20 bill like a $10 bill lengthwise, and then in half again crosswise, like the $5 bill:
Surely it's not this simple. Must be a way to grab money from your wallet without taking your eyes off the junkie.

I stopped carrying cash largely because I got sick of being " that guy" holding up the checkout line to reorganize that filthy wadded pile of cash the clerk gave me for change.

/ was even worse when I WAS the clerk, organizing EVERYONE'S money before I put it on the drawer.
 
2013-07-04 09:14:23 AM
I have to say, it's a lot easier than searching through my wallet for the right bills.
 
2013-07-04 09:16:46 AM
I'd better go unsort the bills in my wallet then. I don't want to be considered a drug dealer.

Uh huh. If a rich white kid is caught with an ounce of cocaine and $10K "folded" in his Ferrari, I'm sure that will be used to demonstrate intent.

If sorting bills is intent to commit a crime, then *having* bills is at least as much an indication of intent.

But no matter what, keep us safe, keep us safe, safe, keep us safe from drug dealers.

Safe.

Subby is an idiot.

Blind people also employ this method in their wallets.
 
2013-07-04 09:20:08 AM
How lucky of the police to find a vehicle violation as a premise to stop a known drug dealer.

This.

It also helps keep track of what you sold.

Do not fold, spindle, or mutilate.

But seriously... back when I worked retail, the bank would always biatch if we brought the daily deposit over without sorting the bills and having them all face the same way. I still do that with my own money. Much easier than digging for the right denomination.

Safe.


The safe way to go is the "jock wad".  Just wad up all your cash like a used tissue and cram into your underwear.  The cops would never be able to call that intent, and it makes them use those blue rubber gloves.
 
2013-07-04 09:27:14 AM
Is this like when they pull someone over whose on their way to go buy a car or something with cash, and they maybe have $5-$10K in cash on them, they seize it as "potential" drug proceeds? Because anyone carrying a lot of cash must be into drugs, right?
 
2013-07-04 09:28:13 AM
I can't find a definition of "street folding" on the internet even. Sounds like more made up cop stuff.

not so much in the UK. online poker maybe, but you dont need a fat wad of real cash and two mobile phones for that

2013-07-04 09:31:01 AM
I don't understand how this helps if it is like the poster above explained it. Wouldn't folded over bills stick when being put into a wallet? Make it harder to shut?
Why not just buy a wallet with different sections for each domination? I have two in mine, on one side I have 20s and on the other 1, 5, and 10s.

/ yeah I'm rollin big time

They keep legalizing table games in more and more states here.  There are going to be four casinos within about an hour from DC in a year or two woohoo!

I assume it's still legal if you're white, right?
 
2013-07-04 09:38:11 AM
But I thought drug dealers put their money in hundreds with one note folded over or thousands in a roll with an elastic band then you fill storage boxes with the rolls?

Oh I see, crap dealers...

I don't if it is true in this case because they didn't say how much crack they found, but the street fold bit is a way for the state to up charges from possession to intent to distribute even if the amount of drugs the person is caught with doesn't meet the requirement for the intent to distribute charge.

Overheard one of my neighbors complaining about the local cops pulling him over for that.  OTOH, the combo of the tinted windows & neon undercarriage lighting ( Honda Civic ) attracts the attention of Law Enforcement, IMHO.

I think, to tell the truth,  that the idea here is, "Here's a young black man who went to the mental effort of sorting pieces of paper that had numbers on them, and nobody would believe he did that unless he had some kind of criminal intent in mind.  If he didn't, he'd just pull crumpled bills out of his pocket to buy a 40 and a rock, am I right?"

Show me an article where the cops arrest a white guy and cite his money being sorted as evidence of...anything.

"Did we mention that this young black man also had a cell phone?  A CELL PHONE, ladies and gentlemen of the jury!"

Doesn't it just make sense to organize cash by denomination? It's easier to find the cash you need when paying for something. Who wants to be the schlub digging through their wallet at the register?

The fact that the arrest for crack was legitimate doesn't justify the use of the fact that he arranged his bills in order to prove anything

It's still asinine and worthy of the Florida tag because the organizing of money has no relevance
