    Boy doles out hundreds of fake $20 bills at school 1 hour, 59 minutes ago



    Authorities say an 8-year-old boy was handing out hundreds of dollars in fake $20 bills at an Ocala elementary school. School officials reported the boy to police on Tuesday.

    The fake bills were discovered when a child tried to use one to pay for lunch. An administrator then tracked down several other students with fake bills. Those students all identified the boy.

    The boy who was not identified was turned over to the Department of Children and Families after authorities learned his guardians had warrants for their arrest.

    In all, the counterfeit money added up to 44 notes or $880. Police say they don't know who produced the fake currency.

    Guess he ran out of color toner in Mommy's printer or he may have 'printed' more.

    The question is, were the parents involved? Or was it a little kid playing with a scanner. If the old folks were involved it might be off to foster care for him.

    Lousy outcome either way.

    Don't you just love kids........as if there isn't enough to worry about.......I think if the parents were involved (in a bad way) the kid wouldn't be just handing them out.

    It is hard to say. Maybe the kid "found" the money at home and helped himself to it. With so much of it, he might have been trying to make some friends.

    Sounds like the parents don't have a very good track record themselves, and they may be spending some time in the lockup.

    Maybe it wasn't really counterfeit, and just really bad looking play money that some other kid thought he would try to use.

    Calling the police instead of checking out what was going on, quietly, is an example of child abuse. Too many school officials seem to think they have to call the cops for everything and forget that they are dealing with children. In this case, small and very immature young children.

    I'd fire the principal.
