Embezzlement: A new career option

RoNeisha Mullen of The Flint Journal has a nice overview of all the embezzlement cases plaguing the Flint area, including the tale of Dana Bacon (above), who was sentenced to one year in jail for stealing more than $1 million from the Montrose School District. Youth soccer leagues and work-release prisoners are also popular targets.

Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
