When Guns are Outlawed, Only Outlaws will have Charity Bins.

Charity bin. (By the way, most of these are a racket run by for-profit businesses or "non profits" like Planet Aid where there are no "profits" per se, but insiders get fat salaries). So they're an unnecessary eyesore even when they don't host dead bums.

Planet Aid Charity bin. (Not the mishap bin).

This is one of those things that just leaves you shaking your head.

Authorities are investigating after a man’s body was found dangling from a clothing donation bin in Burlington County.
Police say a woman made the discovery around 2 p.m. Sunday in a Planet Aid donation box located in the parking lot of the Country Farm Convenience Store in Pemberton Township.
The woman, who didn’t want to be identified, said she called the police after noticing the man’s legs hanging from the bin.

How on earth did that happen? Did someone stuff him in the Goodwill bin?

Police say it’s likely the victim got his head trapped and became stuck.

Oh, wait, we get it now. Wile E. Coyote Super Genius here was going to steal the charitable donations, and got his greedy self stuck in the bin.

All of his future contributions to the human race will never happen now — how sad is that? Not very, because he probably wasn’t going make any. On the bright side, all his future property and violent crimes won’t happen now, either. This is looking more and more like a net win for society.

The woman’s husband attempted to the free the man, but he was already dead.

Yeah, well, rigor mortis will do that.

Pretty inconsiderate of him, really. The charity loses out on everything kind people had placed in the bin, thanks to his greed; because no matter what they do, they’ll never get the smell of dead bum out of the clothes.

 

Epilogue…

Even when they don’t have the smell of dead bums about them, many of these “charity” bins are a racket run by for-profit businesses or “non profits” like Planet Aid where there are no “profits” per se, but insiders get fat salaries). See here and here for examples. So they’re an unnecessary eyesore even when they don’t host dead bums. But one of the stories does point out that

Legitimate nonprofits do have collection bins out there, all clearly marked with familiar names: Goodwill, the Salvation Army, and the St. Vincent de Paul Society.  But, they are in the minority these days.

The nominal non-profit Planet Aid and the for-profit USAgain are both tied to the same Danish (!) criminal syndicate. So your donations are probably being ripped off, even if a doomed bum isn’t doing it; and unlike the bum, the guys doing it are getting away with it. Wonderful.

    Damn. I had been using one of those in front of the local box mart because the mean old lady at the Church House of Care was, well, a mean old lady.
