    Should we start chopping off the hands of thieves?

    I dislike the actual act of theft and take great satisfaction for some one being called to task for their actions legally, I dont condone vigillante activities to deal with these issues , and I know many will dissagree with me , I have more than one friend that is a color wearing member of a two wheel transit club, and although the reputation precedes them I have seen some of the best restraint in dealing with said issues, from the members.

    I have maintained my studio and have declined any opportunity to accquire stolen items , I have no aspirations to posess and/or be in possession of some one elses property. I probably would turn it in so the rightful owner would get it back.
    having said this people who have drug issues are not them selves and will seek any way they can to survive , I have no answers for them none, but in my opinion they should not visit their issues on good people. I hope your friends get their possessions back soon.

    That thief has got some front, introducing himself to you before breaking into the car. I'm guessing he has some issues, with that MO.

    I don't have much hate anymore, was it Stubee who remarked on how much it burns you up? I'd rather not offer an opinion on the course of retribution but I probably agree with BigDaddyLH and We3tie pretty well but hell, the idea of a guitar out of thin air for the young victim from a bunch of strangers appeals to me like no one could explain. The postage will kill me but anything I can add to the partscaster will be on its way tout sweet.

    That might be a little harsh for a first time offender. Start out with a little pinky, that would definitely complicate their tire iron skills.

    I don't know how many pawnshops you have around there, but they may be worth checking out. Thief may have sold it for money to buy recreational pharmaceuticals, doubtful he's gigging that thing anywhere. Pawnshop owners often take some form of ID before payment, so there's that as well.

    Also, if you have one of those local "mugshot" websites, that may be worth a look. The guy who gave him the tire iron might recognize his face if he got busted.

    Finally, maybe its up for sale on craigslist? You could even put an ad up as "wanting to buy" that specific guitar, and see if you get a response.

    I'm not so in favor of the head severing stuff, but cutting off thieves' hands doesn't really bother me a lot. And when they run out of hands, we can go with the feet next.

    Study after study show that most criminals live that way because they are lazy, most need drugs, and they ENJOY taking what others have worked for. They don't do this reluctantly or out of "necessity" to survive.

    One of my best friends had his house cleaned out of his vintage gear, his PA, his computers, CDs, anything that wasn't nailed down.
    That was 2 years ago and he has yet to afford full replacement of the stuff could be replaced.
    I don't know if he'll ever get over the shock, anger, and sense of violation.

    So...yeah. Thieves suck.

    Yeah, thieves are lazy and they suck,

    I've been ripped off several times, guitars, gear, boat motor, coke machine, but this one is really disgusting...

    My mother was shopping at a Macy's Dept. store, and a thief stole her cane out of the dressing room. She saw a woman exit the dressing room at a brisk pace with an extra long shopping bag. She's 85 and didn't have her cane, so she wasn't able to chase her, and that's probably a good thing. I told her she probably was looking for purses, and decided to steal the cane too. It doesn't get much lower than that, stealing from the elderly.

    Yeah, I hate thieves.

    stealing is disgusting. But cutting someone's hand off is immoral
