This is why we do not trust children with large sums of cash, or anything really. A little boy waiting for his mother at a Bronx liquor store reached into his mother’s pocket and, as luck would have it, pulled out a wad of money to keep himself busy, almost certainly not grasping its value. The coldhearted man behind them in line, seeing an opening and a chance to make the local news hall of fame, then hovers over the thigh-height human and steals the kid’s haul. He runs away, richer. It’s like stealing $500 from a baby.
