Wisconsin woman walked into a police station with a quarter-million dollars worth of drugs.  Her kids had bought her a vacuum for Christmas.  Inside the box, unknown to any of them, was a couple pounds of crystal meth and a key of coke.

She finds the bad stuff and turns it over to the cops, who correctly surmise that it was a drug shipment gone awry.

In a magnanimous gesture of Christmas cheer,

Authorities don’t plan to charge the woman.

This really doesn’t need any more comment, but I will still say “Why in the world would the police even consider charging an honest citizen?  Or why would the newspaper ask?”

It’s a brave new nanny state we live in.  Sigh.
