I can’t find the link right now, and if I do I will add it to this post, but I just saw on News 2 (Nashville) that they described a LOT of counterfeit Nike tennis shoes that had been confiscated from retailers (apparently the shoes didn’t cost a lot to the retailers, and it sounds like they’re in on the scheme and charge a huge price increase). Anyway, the Nashville PD had the shoes destroyed. Shredded, to be exact.
Couldn’t we have done something better with these shoes? I would think donating them to a worthy cause – maybe shoes for people in third world nations – would have been a better solution. Maybe I don’t know the whole story – but I saw it on the news and thought “what a waste”.
