"Noah's mother works with disabled people and said she often talks with her son about taking advantage of opportunities to help others."

So basically the kid had no say in it.

"The boy said he likes helping community helpers."

Actually he'd probably really like some stuff for himself, but Mommy wont let him. Mommy wants him to be a miniature philanthropist instead of a normal six year old, it's all part of her image, and too bad what he wants. I wonder how many years it will take before he snaps and stabs her.

100% agreement.

The parents should have told him no.


No way his parents didn't orchestrate this.... the kid is six.  How many six year olds are worried about the cops' budget?

/ignoring the fact that they're paid by taxpayers and not a farking charity.

The Mayor thanked the child for the $825 donation, later the Police Chief declared the $400 would be put to good use.

Or as I said, his parents do.  Six year olds do NOT think like that. They want toys and birthday cake, not money for cops.  It reeks of brainwashing farked up parents.

sorry, kid, but there's no such thing as a pre-paid get-out-of-jail card.  They ain't going to remember shiat all about you when you fark up as a teenager.

My first thoughts too. Let him put his money in the bank until he old enough to make a rational decision on his own.

Mose: SirEattonHogg: Did anyone bother to read the part where that the donation is going to some youth summer program?

That the kid (and more importantly the local business donors who gave to the kid first) didn't give money to the cops so that the cops could buy a brand new assault rifle or to defray the cost of new riot helmets?

It's practically like raising funds for any other charity or rather a govt organization that is connected with a charity - like the Marines and Toys for Tots.

But far be it for me to get into the usual "Fark the cops" and "AmeriKKKa Police State" discussion.  Please continue.

Remember where you are dude.  I'm surprised your post was totally ignored and that no one dragged out one of the tired old Welcome to Fark gifs.


No kidding, this site changes you.  I clicked thinking this was going to be another story of cops confiscating the kid's money during a search of his parents' car.  And he had the money saved up to cover his cancer treatment copay.  Thanks Fark.

I'd just like to point out that with a decent rate of return, this would turn out to be $4000 for college education.

And cops?  Not the school, local food bank, firefighters, EMTs?  It has to be the one department aside from tax collection that actually generates revenue for the town?

Yep. That money is gonna buy a Taser or two, or just a LOT of McD take-out.

Jocktopus: For the mentally challenged:

The kid didn't get 1650 bucks for his birthday. He asked people to donate to the police for his birthday, and those donations totaled $1638.


It still makes him particularly stupid. Like asking people to send care packages to the goons who are bodyguarding Cliven Bundy.

My initial reaction too - also who the fark gets $1650 for birthday money when they're 6 years old?

I know there's inflation and shiat, but I was lucky to get $5 each from both sets of grandparents.

I'm guessing this kid isn't really wanting for much.

I think this story would have worked a lot better if there were some serious disease this boy was battling. At least in that way, the donation would be symbolic of his altruistism in contrast with his dire situation.

But as-is, this story just seems like the worst kind of glurge. It's neither sappy nor sad. The kid just comes across as a hopelessly stupid kid with a big heart and no brains.
