    It's funny getting hate comments (via rep) because I actually talked some sense.
    A lot of you seem to think we live in a fairytale, you people have no idea whats going on in the world. Thieves are here to stay, nothing you can do about that, but you can do something about being complacent. It was his fault his bike got stolen, had he had a lock, this thread would not exist, I think that statement cements my point.
    He put himself in that situation, not you or I, it was him. Not thinking about bike security is irresponsible, sometimes thats what it takes for people to wake up and realise that they live on planet Earth, where thieves do exist.
    You can go on daydreaming on ways to punish thieves, then come back to reality and realise nothing will be done about it, focus on prevention.
    It's the card we've been dealt, deal with it!

    First off, people who give bad rep for an opinion just because they don't agree with it are kind of childish morons especially when they don't have the balls to sign it and they almost never have the balls.

    That being said, you are mistaking fault with responsibility.
    It wasn't his fault that somebody tried to steal it however, it was his responsibility to reasonably secure the bike. His irresponsibility created a situation where a thief could more easily steal his bike. However, the fault still solely lies on the thief.

    if the victim of the theft had locked his bike...and the thief had broken it anyway...that's all the more reason for a sound thrashing.

    the thief put himself in a position to be thumped.

    A person should be able to leave their property unattended, and think that it should be there when they get back. That sh!t that you said is basically saying it's OK to steal stuff, wise up mate.

    Not true, it's much cheaper to lock up thieves and keep them out of society, petty criminals steal ~$100K per year, it only costs $25k to jail them. You seem to be blaming the victim, he has every right to park his bike and expect it to be there when he returns. The thief will think twice before stealing another bike, the near-victim did the world a favor. Sounds as if the judge is going to add a little more misery for the thief.

    I agree. You should be able to leave property unattended and not have to worry about someone taking it and there are probably places where you can do so- Mayberry circa 1959 would be one such place. In reality, you can't. I don't think anyone would leave a wallet on the ground in front of a convenience store and expect it to be there when they got back. Bicycles are one of those items that are a known criminal target. You can fight this reality by nervously watching your bike, chasing down thugs and kicking their asses or you can lock it up and relax. The reed or the oak- your choice.

    Thieves do not need to be understood, they need a beating. Bike thieves need a beating X 2..

    In a perfect world, yes, but this isnt the world we live in, it's obvious you are not from this planet, leave your **** unattended, please do and see what happens.Your a classic example of living in a fairytale!
    There is a reason why we buy bike locks, car alarms, house alarms, locks on windows, car/home insurance etc etc. I bet my bottom dollar you have one or more of those security items, and you know exactly the reason why we have them.

    Welcome to my fairytale;
    • -my bike is rarely locked, only if it will be left for more than say 4 hrs
    • -where I park it when at the shops, I cant see it
    • -I have no bike insurance
    • -the house is seldom locked
    • -the car is never locked
    • -my 2 young kids ride to school by themselves, ~3kms
    • -if my wallet was on the ground, it might not be there when I get back, but I know I will get it back


    As far as house & car insurance goes, of course we need them, we have invested heavily in both and a fire/accident/mother nature can destroy these quite quickly, then we are out of pocket. I think the last break in here happened about 2yrs ago, dude came home a 'little' drunk, went to the wrong house, passed out on couch.

    Your planet sounds like it sucks, maybe a few "beat downs" will help steer your planet in the correct direction

    That does not apply if you live in a city or suburbs. Living out in the sticks, outback, country or whatever you want to call it, you can afford to be more complacent, but most of us reside in the city or populated areas, thieves reside and work in areas where there are lot of opportunies and morons to take advantage of, hence why they are successful.

    i am proud to have initiated a post which has ignited such um, passion.

    regardless of where you are, who you are or what the social mores are where you live...if you take something which does not belong to you without the owner's permission, one assumes the risk of whatever happens to you in the future, up to and including severe beating/death/arrest.

    if i leave my unlocked, unattended property in front of my house and somebody steals it, that's my fault for being a mindless lummox. but once again, the person who unlawfully takes possession of said property assumes the risk of severe beating/death/arrest.

    we live on a savage planet in savage times. this means that sometimes people who commit crimes against others are going to be punished beyond the limits of our legal system. i do not support behavior like this becoming the norm in my community or anywhere else...but there are times that i'm going to give tacit approval to a beat down where a beat down is deserved.

    SV11 if you believe that its ok to just take advantage of a situation irrelevant of morals as long as its to your advantage with no empathy to the victim then that qualifies you as a clinical psychopath. Try the Hares psychopathy checklist on yourself it may prove useful.

    Ofcourse it's not, I have never said that it was ok, and I can see a lot of readers have misinterpreted my posts. Do you honestly think thieves give a fark about morals, or your situation, ofcourse not. The only way to beat a thief is to think like one. You can sit here discussing a cure, the fact is there is no cure, just like aids, but you can prevent it from happening in nearly all cases. Prevention trumps cure.
    It would make more sense if you think of thieves as aids, there is no cure.

    Theres a difference between saying the bike owner could have prevented the theft and saying it was his fault. He may have been naiive thinking it wouldnt get stolen but the thief is the one that made an immoral choice not the owner. A couple of black eyes and a few stitches are no more than most of us have done to ourselves riding. If he was permanently disabled or killed it would have been too much but in my opinion he got what he deserved. With all the inconvenience of the court system the owner probably got what he deserved, a little inconvenience for being stupid.

    ^ this. Guy got caught stealing and got a decent beating for it, then got arrested. Other guy got his bike back. Happy ending all the way round, no need for harsher beatings or blaming the dude that got his bike pinched. All good, happy days.

    I think that while the guy deserved it, there's nothing cool about beating a guy up no matter what he did. Cheering a guy getting beat up isn't any better than cheering that a bike got stolen, regardless of whether it was an action or reaction. I give a big (non-broken) thumbs down to this thread, and I'm pretty bummed it's not a more popular opinion around here (kudos to those who do feel the same way, though).

    yeah, because if you just slap him on the wrist and say, " now don't do that again" they will fully understand the repercussions for their actions and what could happen if they choose to do it again... much like what's wrong with kids these days, not enough Red Forman's putting boots in their azz'es ..

    Whether you like or accept it or not, human males have been fighting, punching on and dishing out punishment since the dawn of time, humans not only have the ability to talk and reason but also dish out punishment and fight.
    Yes its not the best way to deal with things in most occasions but in ones like this its a perfect way to deal with it and in my opinion very ethical and justified..
    If you think that its wrong to watch men fight and enjoy it your dreaming.
    We love our UFC and boxing here infact UFC sells out in 1 hour, i adore it and derive a great deal of pleasure watching it.
    Some men have an instinct to fight and enjoy it, i put myself in that group, i dont chose to like it i just do ever since i was a child, its called testosterone, and its a part of life for a big part of the male population the world over, always has been always will be..
    You cant expect every one to share your opinion on this.
    If a dude steals a bike and got beat up like he did here i think its great, id either be the one beatin him up or very much enjoying the spectacle....
    He got what he deserved and in my opinion deserved more than he got...
    Dont ever let the truth get in the way of a funny story....

    I'm agreeing with both sides of the argument... MAYBE the beating was a little harsh... BUT...
    About 20 years ago, I had a diesel generator shop in a BAD neighborhood on Long Island. One evening, a guy wandered in claiming he had just been released from jail and wanted to know if I had a job for him. I did not. Then he asked for 20 dollars for food. I reluctantly gave him ten and sent him on his way. now, for the next four or five days, he was around. I knew I made a mistake.
    One evening, I hear a ruckus in my lobby. I run out to find the guys who rented the front shop from me for an auto repair business beating the **** out of the guy. They caught him breaking into customer's cars stealing stuff. He NEVER came back.
    So, if the bike owner yanked him off the bike and let him go? He'll do it again. Will he do it again now? I bet no.
    I like turtles

    Beating up a thief because he stole your bike, will not discourage the thief not to steal again, it just doesn't work that way. If it did, I"d be on the bandwagon.
    A good example is capital punishment in the US. Capital punishment was introduced in 1968, so you would expect in future years crime would be less. It's the opposite, it has been rising. In 1968, 517 inmates were on death row, in 2012 its 3170. So, if death does not stop people committing crimes, do you seriously think beating up someone will have an effect?

    Agree with some of your points but, population, serious drug use and power of the drugs is increasing, and so is policing, its all relative.
    The example you have given is 50 years apart..

    It's actually captial crimes which recieve the death penalty, homocide, murder, kindnapping etc.USA doesn't have capital punishment for drug trafficking.

    No i understand that but im saying that directly or indirectly drugs are the reason for many many capital crimes like murder, if you took a statistic of how many people on death row had had drugs play a heavy influence on their life and crimes it would be massive..
    Without hard drugs involved it would be less than half the number for sure....
    Dont ever let the truth get in the way of a funny story....

    Quite possibly, anything is possible especially when your taking hard drugs, it changes people.

    If you want to live back in the cave man days, go right ahead. The last time I was a victim of theft was when i was around 6, bike got stolen out of my backyard. Since then I refuse to be a victim. It has nothing to do with pussification, but everything to do with common sense. Lock it or lose it.

    I hate it when people try to blame the victim, and am all for negatively reinforcing theft to whatever extent you deem desirable in the event you catch the thief. They named that price, and voluntarily took that risk, when they decided to steal your property.
    Yes, you need to lock up your bike. That's the sad reality of the world we live in.
    You shouldn't need to, though.

    I cant help but laugh..

    Say you and I are neighbors. A third neighbor knows us both and knows if he breaks into my house and I catch him he will get a trip to the hospital.. but knows if he gets caught breaking into your house he is going to get hugs.

    Youre telling me the outcome isnt going to effect his decision making on which house to burglarize?

    Sorry to say, I think youre quite delusional..

    The problem is we need to make sure all thieves get the same or worth savage beating. These scum commit crimes because they think they can away with it and often they do. If there was a 90 percent chance of a beating or death, most theft would stop. Some people only understand great violence unfortunately. The punishment must be severe.

    Bike thiefs and breakins are two different kettle of fish.
    Do you seriously think a neighbour who is rational would break into his neighbours house, no rational person would do that, I think you're the delusional one.
    Coming up with a scenario like that proves you're delusional, and your attitude sux.
    I live in a relatively high crime area, in 33 years I have not had a single break in. The reason why I"ve been successful is because of prevention.
