As far as the legal question, he'll probably just say that if the clerk had kept the 5 and bought a bottle of cheap Bordeaux it would have been dismissed as justifiable repurposing of funds.

I'm kind of surprised Rupert hasn't weighed in on it. Seems like it would be right up Otis' alley!

Call it what you will but I say, "Show me the money!" Otherwise it is stealing.

OK ... despite my education, I'm pretty crappy sometimes on legal issues.

But as for cheap Bordeaux, there I am an expert.

And $5 is a hell of a lot of money for cheap Bordeaux in my neck of the woods.

Okay, so when you talk about "cheap" Bordeaux you mean "Hey, buddy, can you spare a dime" cheap.

Yes, it's a 30+ year old trailer. (At 30+ years old, it's a trailer. Ain't no "mobile home" or "manufactured" nothing to it!) The reason I have to have an electrician is because the power company will not reconnect without an electrician's sign off that the 200a breaker service is wired correctly. The new pole is up and everything is ready, but the county office is closed on the weekends. Bastards! So, Monday it is!
So after nearly a week of couch/cot surfing & wearing out our welcomes amongst our family & friends, I'm very relieved & happy to report that the new pole's installation & wiring met the county inspector's codes & we're reconnected! In the immortal words of Prince Adam, "I have the power!"

I went to page three, but I couldn't find it since I am wearing my wine googles ... or is that, goggles ?!

Anyway, there was a revelation to be found ... THIS THREAD IS ABOUT A CAMERA !!!

I think that I have been hood-winked ...

The five elements of embezzlement: (i) the fraudulent (ii) conversion (iii) of the property (iv) of another person (v) by the person who has lawful possession of the property.

v) Lawful possession: The critical element is that the embezzler must have been in lawful possession of the property at the time of the fraudulent conversion, and not merely have custody of the property. If the thief had lawful possession of the property, the crime is embezzlement. If the thief merely had custody, the crime is larceny.

I think it could go either way, depending on jurisdiction and how the court interprets "lawful possession" of the money - whether the clerk had "lawful possession" or merely custody. Reading the Wiki articles, it might be a case where if the manager pocketed the two dollars, it would be embezzlement, but for the clerk, it would be larceny. North Carolina muddies the waters with a crime called "larceny by employee".
Witch! Burn the witch!

Oh, you're not a lawyer? Sorry...

Don't know about French feet in general but, probably from the stamping of grapes for the cheap Bordeaux wines, the feet in that area are 357.214mm (roughly 14.06354331 imperial inches). Those feet are, quite literally, dwarfed by the feet of Cremona, Austria. They somehow found out that feet were 480mm (18.9") long. I wonder what they were drinking at the time...

The different German cities all had different definition of a foot - and while most divided those feet into 12 inches, some chose 10 or 11(!) as a more sane divisor.
