Let's Catch A Thief!! (Update: CAUGHT!) - Page 20

post #286 of 430

Congratulations Todd!!!

 

since this turned out to be so  successful, could someone please do this thread over again for Mikhail Rotenberg of Single Power.  Stole a collective estimated 200 grand from head-fi members (10k of which is my money).  :'(

 

EDIT: I should say here, that I have no expectation that the losses could ever be recouped from Single Power.  I'm just in awe of what head-fi & Todd were able to do here! Todd is one of the nicest guys I've dealt with and I'm super happy for this win! :)

Not to start a flame war, but how exactly is mutilating any body part let alone that at all appropriate for theft of a physical object? Why exert physical violence against someone who didn't do that in the first place? Then the person doing that would become an even worse perpetrator than the original.

If this form of justice were enforced and one made an example, then I can assure theft crimes will disappear or decrease dramatically.
Some may see it as mutilation. Some may see it as justice for the greater good of society.

Wow, what a utilitarian concept. Unfortunately a room full of squirrely old men in powdered wigs came to the insane conclusion that due process and judicial discretion was preferable to the old story of the head that found itself on the summit of a pike.

Right? All that junk is unnecessary. Should be simple. If you don't want to die just don't do anything that would make you a criminal. Doesn't give a way out for people with lots of money either which is good. And if the rich criminals went under capital punishment, then the money that he or she use to own could be used for the good of society. It's all about the good of society. A society that people like Todd, you and me is part of.

THe main problem with that concept is when ppl get framed. Thats why its easier to convict someone for theft and send them to jail for 1 year rather than get the capital punishment.

 

Anyway, Laws are there the proctect the rich and powerfull, have no doubt (since its basicly writen by them).

I could give 100 examples or explain this from a theorical point of view, but i belive either most people already know this, or those who dont, or dont want to know.

 

THe only real power of the people is mass hysteria or rage. Basicly is when humans get pissed off enought to ignore rules and just do what they want.

Thus for our founding fathers enacting the right to bear arms. The point was to have your Government serve you. Not the other way around ;)...

Well, after seeing the update, im happy that the damage was undone. I hope the thief pays for the crime he commited in fair amount.

Congratulations to Todd, and the police.
