Just found this vid. There seems to be some sympathy for the fire dept., which has no desire to turn over their remaining $32k in poker gains to the cops — they’ve got an engine to pay for, after all!

I gotta think they’re gonna win their battle … because if they do have to turn it over and then for some reason something burns down that shouldn’t … well there would be hell to pay, you can be sure. We’ll see if I’m right. At a minimum, the poker case(s) against proprietors of the Seward VFD game seem to be the ones bringing the concept of poker revenues paying for civil services to light:

    So if I need a firetruck, can I host a poker tournament and keep the cash? What stinks about the FD not being able to keep the money is that the participants are using poker as an excuse to donate the money in the first place. It’s not like they are being swindled.
