    And yet, if you pummel them into the bloody lump they deserve to be, you wind up the bad guy!

    Note: this is hyperbolic humor. I do not espouse violence, despite wishing that all thieves would perish hideously. And painfully. And slowly.

    Robberies around here usually aren't pick pocket things.

    years ago, mike stern was robbed, in nyc, of his precious telecaster. i thought it was funny when he said "the guy could have just taken the smack that i had in my other pocket, easier for him, and i'd still have my guitar"...

    Ha the exact thing happened to me in the Union Square area. I just though the lady was another NYC whack job, but she may have been trying to run the scam on someone else too.

    Yup. Condition white is no way to be in the city.

    Around here they smack you in the back of the head- when you hit the ground, they take your wallet (called a "jack roll").

    I'm actually surprised she wasn't half of a pair. She yells at you, you get worked up and procupied with yelling back and don't notice the person actually picking your pocket.

    Many times it isn't just the valuables they take, its peace of mind and faith in humanity. The rat bastids couldn't suffer enough IMO.

    Where is this?

    Here in Texas, a lot of law abiding people are armed to the teeth. An attack can get a thief some free valuables, or a quick trip to heaven.

    Our trumpet player drew his 9mm down on a guy who tried to steal his laptop. I drew a .38 on a guy who came into out tent while camping one night. A good friend shoved a .45 in the face of a guy who jumped into the passenger's seat of his truck. None of these events ended with a dead crook, but they could have. Now it is legal in Texas to open carry. So far, the thousands of legally carried guns haven't resulted in the bloodbath that many predicted. Crime has actually gone down. (BTW... I do not carry a gun.)

    And I would have gotten away with it too if it weren't for those meddling kids.
