Karma Hurts Sometimes...

Gerry in IL sent in this truly wonderful video of a crummy thief getting EXACTLY what he deserves.



Watch it, then watch it again. Once you've stopped laughing, watch it just one more time and take extra note. First off, the dude lived, which is a shame - stupidity that blatant should be fatal. Secondly, notice how not a single person helped the woman. He walked up to her brazenly, grabbed her phone, struggled a bit, then ran off. No one helped. Lastly, the reporter comments that he had accomplices - had someone stepped in to help, they might have found themselves also the victim of a crime.

So what's the moral of this story? There are several. First off, be aware of your surroundings. When several young predators are circling, don't keep staring obliviously at your phone. Secondly, you're on your own - if you think others are going to help you out, you're more than likely mistaken.

And lastly, let the bus handle the scumbags...

That is all.

In defense of those standing around, that all happened pretty damn fast. By the time you get from "Is that dude really robbing that lady?" to "yep, I aught to help her out". The dude was already becoming acquainted with all the special interest groups that supported Obama.

Does the warranty cover brain matter splatter on your phone?

I guess not.

Moral of the story....get the bus driver to back up enough for a decent running start, and try again.

Gives a whole new meaning to "I gotta catch a bus", doesn't it?
