    HAHAHA the thief deserved everything he got, well done for the cops by not arresting the bike owner, this is true justice, pity his hands wernt 'accidently' chopped off too, thats known to put a stop to future thieving....

    Good for the bike owner, good for the cops. Guy got exactly what he deserved, and the bike owner gets my and a lot of other peoples respect. Great job.

    My wife and I laughed our asses off at the pic of the thief..
    A couple years ago, in Orlando, some dirtbag broke into our truck and got my backpack. We saw all sorts of begging and scamming.
    Glad this one played out just like it did.

    BTW, anyone ever use a lock?

    Maybe we should incorporate stoning? :rolleyes:

    Believe me, I am no friend to any thief but somehow I can't get off on seeing a pathetic loser beaten to a bloody pulp.

    Rarely do these cases turn out well even for the "victim". Perp got tuned up, bike owner served him justice and isn't getting prosecuted. Awesome. Fawk this scumbag.

    Agreed. Sad that the bike's owner felt it was a good time to take out pent up frustration (whether simply because his bike was stolen or something else going on in his life) to on the scummy guy.

    If there is a silver-lining, I will bet the criminal won't steal a bike again!

    He looks drug addicted. I'm no bike thief fan but I"m beating this guy has been beat in the past--probably in his family of origin.

    I will agree.

    The beating does seem a bit excessive for retrieving a bike but I wasn't there to see why the beating was excessive. Maybe the crook fought back trying keep the stolen bike forcing the owner to beat him down more.
    Or maybe the owner was just so pissed that he lost it (and I can't really blame him either).

    I can't get off on seeing the guy beaten to a bloody pulp, but I also can't feel sorry for him. If he would have left his hands off of other peoples property, he would have never had his ass beat.

    You know how you can avoid getting your bike stolen while you shop at the Food Mart?

    Try locking your bike before you go inside.

    Its actually a fairly common occurrence here in Florida, just most dont make national news.

    Glad the guy got his bike back. Maybe more people will think before stealing a bike from someone.

    Glad to see the owner of the bike detained the thief. Having said that, the owner farked up royally from the begining. He left his bike unattended and unlocked while he went into a store. Thats like dangling a big wad of cash infront of a thief, they are going to take it no matter what, and it if wasn't that thief it would of been a different thief. Then he catches up to the thief and detains him, thats great but he took out his own fark up on the thief, which imm is totally worng. It was the owners fault in the begining, seeing him walk off with no penalties proves you can spit on the law and suffer no repercussion, how often have you seen perps beaten up by police after they have been detained....

    yeah, bike thieves really let locks get in their way.. and it wasn't the owners fault, the guy who got his ass beat was the one who made the conscious decision to steal the bike and thus his actions were met with a reaction that i'm sure anyone else would have duplicated
