Ikenna, a 28-year old construction worker, went to deposit a $8,463.21 Chase cashier's check at his local Chase branch, only for the teller to decide that neither he nor his check looked right and he got tossed in jail for forgery, KING5 reports. The next day, a Friday the bank realized its mistake and left a message with the detective. But it was her day off, so he spent the entire weekend in jail.

By the time he got out, he had been fired from his job for not showing up to work. His car had been towed as well. It ended up getting sold off at auction because he couldn't afford to get it out of the pound. He had been relying on that cashier's check for his money but it was taken as evidence and by the time he got it back it was auctioned off.

Liberals are more outraged than libertarians about this!

Chase is only liable to the extent that they could have foreseen all the crappy stuff that would happen to him. I'd say the chain of events is pretty crazy. Bad things happen to good people. He should move to Cuba. They're #7 in happy; we're #114.

The best description of this sequence of events is Kafkaesque.

I was reminded of it when listening to this week's The Professional Left podcast (http://professionalleft.blogspot.com/), when one of the hosts observed that we, as a nation, "are now deep in film noir territory. We're way down in that genre where good guys lose, bad guys are never punished, and the world is a dark and scary place full of powerful people who have no morality at all. That's a creepy genre to be drawing your politics from, but we sure are."
