      That’s VERY interesting considering the police are allowed to
      collect evidence from dumpsters and garbage cans because once it’s been
      thrown out it’s consider public domain… meaning they don’t need a
      warrant etc to collect someone’s “trash” as evidence. Yet, they can
      turn around and charge someone with theft for taking something that
      they themselves can take without cause? Interesting….

      Interesting that you brought that up. Personally, I’ve never
      thought of it as stealing, because someone put it in the dumpster.
      However, the police thought differently when he saw my adult son
      take some wood scraps from a dumpster (he was making a project with his
      little brothers). He was charged with criminal theft!
