John Allgren, Department of Justice:
Extortion demands good organization, clever brains, and much money, but extortion cannot operate against a brave man who faces down these parasites and goes to the police for help. He cannot be robbed!
When the woman is buying two bottles of milk, the grocer asks for 63 cents, saying the price went up. However, the price increase was 3 cents per bottle. It's likely the price should have been 66 cents total, meaning the previous price of a single bottle was 30 cents. It's doubtful the previous cost would have been 28 and a half cents per bottle. (The U.S. last minted a half cent in 1857.) Also, that 63 cents would equate to nearly $12 in 2020.
