Absolutely ridiculous. These people are supposed to be held accountable. They have a responsibility. I can understand investigations going on, but half-inching someone's property and not giving it back to them is, at best, temporary theft. If they're doing it to taxpayers, they should replace the property they've taken away with an equivalent, especially when said property has a negative impact on a child's education! Stealing. Nothing less. Bastards. And I'm glad this post is under the "crime" category.
