A one-armed bandit is sitting quietly in an airport, having just taken $200 from an old man. Kristy, who watched the bandit take the old man's money, walks over and takes $1000 from the bandit. Even though a police officer witnessed both these events and the bandit made enough ruckus to alert everyone in the vicinity to what happened, Kristy was able to keep the $1000 and the old man didn't get his money back. Why?
