The "thief" looks like a wimpy...

Made my day

Thank you. I appreciate when a law abiding citizen puts in the hard work.

People are saying that's

People are saying that's assault! I don't think so, because he's getting his stuff back! It's his property and if someone refuses to give it back, then what? I don't think that's assault! Idk, what do you think?

Legal Reasoning

There is what we feel is just in our gut (street justice) and then there is how the law sees it.

Yes, you can use force to regain your property - legal. However, if you continue to apply force after you have regained your property it crosses over into assault especially if the other party has ceased to defend themselves - illegal. Deserved? Oh yes. Legal - no.. and so the tape is a problem.

It still made my day.

I was watching an episode of

"Beyond Scared Straight". One of the delinquents (13 yo) was bragging about how he liked to steel bicycles in his neighborhood. That waas bad enough...what made it worse was his logic (paraphrased): The bikes are outside on the lawn so I am free to take it.

Interesting mentality, wouldn't you say?

There was some poetic justice...his bike was stolen a few weeks later (but I suspect it wasn't really his).

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

Really stupid move on the part of the "tracker"

Give this story a little time and you will see the person who took the iPhone sue the guy for battery and premeditated assault. I can almost guarantee it. It was just a phone and it could've simply been remotely wiped by the owner instead.

You ever heard of a citizen

You ever heard of a citizen arrest? He broke the law! You can't steal from people man!!!

How about assault? That's not

How about assault? That's not legal. Technically, they should've called police and had an officer meet them where they found the signal. Liberty means taking responsibility for your actions, even when the other person refuses.

That YouTube video is courtroom evidence against both parties involved.

The cops won't do nothing my

The cops won't do nothing my friend! So you're telling me I'm not allowed to fight for my property? Only in my house!? Get out of here! Lol. The guy should of just coughed it up! I mean it's not his right?

Another chapter...

in the "Pussification of America", handbook. Chapter II: Don't be responsible for yourself and your property. Have the government do it for you. Opinion: Only when you can't do it for yourself.

Unfortunately Velveeta is Right

This will cause problems.

For the man dealing retribution

It is on tape and it was not self-defense. The thief is in a position to press assault charges. Would have been wise not to post for public.

Sean you have no right to

Sean you have no right to take my stuff! I don't understand, like is this a joke? So you're telling me, that if you take something from me, I can't get it back from you? Why do I have to call the cops? They don't stop crimes! Do they? If I grab my property back and you try to hit me, then it's over! You're gonna get knocked out! Lol. How do you not agree with this? What am I missing?

juan maldonado

You can get it back Juan

And as you say most officers will turn the other way if you add in a little "extra" for retribution sake. But legally there is a limit. The tape creates a problem. Look at my post above. Its good to know.

BTW - I am not suggesting you call the police if you can regain your property without assistance. I am saying don't tape it and post it on Youtube.

Best.

Ok I see what you're saying.

Since...

Since I can't see everything on tape, I won't comment on the event itself. Although, the tracker does have every right to pin the man down and handcuff him; I just couldn't entirely tell what was happening with the fight. But as to your statement that "they should've had an officer meet them where they found the signal" - from experience, the police will not do this. (At least my local police.)

I experienced this exact scenario. I called the police, and they told me they could not help with this. I had the man's home address as well as his current location with 'find my iphone'. They still would not help whatsoever. They said it's too small of a theft and all they could do is call me if he turned it in to them. Though the officer I spoke to did tell me that "You can attempt to confront him yourself. But we highly recommend that you do not." So, aside from the rest of what happened, they may very well have called earlier and asked to meet somewhere; which amounted to nothing.

You're so right! I saw an ABC

You're so right! I saw an ABC special on the TSA, where this agent stole a laptop from a customer ( undercover reporter) and actually took it home! Anyway The reporter followed the signal to the guys house and only because there were cameras there he gave it back. But ask yourself this, how many times has did guy done this? Probably a lot, ppl like that feel they can't get caught! Their above the law! Isn't there something called property rights?

juan maldonado

Oh, t-r-a-c-k-s him down.

Not quite as cool as what I had in mind, but cool none the less.

Real fights...

in contrast to the Hollywood choreographed fights with make-up and lighting, are nearly always awkward and not so cool looking. The cool/interesting thing about a REAL fight is, that it IS real.

God forgives always. Man forgives sometimes. But Nature never forgives.

Yes, I know--- been in them.

But I had this image that someone had "tacked" (not "tracked") a guy down, maybe with a nail gun or something, and beat the crap out of him.
But yes, I agree.

he beat the snot out of that

he beat the snot out of that guy...literally.

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

Dang, thought he had a nailgun or something.

But he tracked him down, not tacked him down.

I thought he had a hoola woop,

but it was an ass whooping.

Still love ya Juan. Love your sense of humor mostly.

Lmao. Why thank you!

Lmao. Why thank you!

That ass just keeps gettin' skinnier, Juan.
