I hadn't heard about the convenience center.
Honestly I don't care if those poor souls take home some useless junk that someone threw out. That is called recycling. The work there is unpleasant and pays little. Taking home the odd battery that still has some life in it, there is no harm in that.
Meanwhile we have a corrupt system where commissioners vote a psychopathic judge in office, we have police and deputies that are dealing in drugs, stealing drugs from the evidence locker or accepting kickbacks from dealers, we have corruption from one side of the county to the other, and they want to focus on the guy that collects the trash keeping some for himself.
That is pathetic, it is an abomination, and it is not justice.
