This happened to my daughter at school today. She takes her SLR camera to school because she has a photography class. She was in a hurry to eat lunch and left her camera underneath the seat she was sitting on. She was on her way to her next class when she realized she didn't have her camera so she went back for it and it was gone. She went to the office and they asked her for the names of the people she was sitting with, called them I'm but they all said they didn't have it. She went back to the office later to see if anyone had turned it in, no one had. She then went to talk top the police officer on campus. The officer found her camera and the boy admitted that he was only giving it back because he got caught with it. So the officer told my daughter to talk to her parents to see if we want to press charges.
I'm on the fence about it because it was my daughter that left it behind because she was rushing. My husband thinks we should press charges because it wasn't his to take. He had the chance to return it and chose not to.
WWYD? I'm torn!
