Yes, but the unfortunate reality is the Criminals have MORE RIGHTS than the Victims any more, and if you did that, the POS wouldn't have to STEAL from you, but would get your Home and damn near everything in it LEGALLY, and YOU would likely end up paying HIS legal fees.:confused::(

Massively SUCKS, but that is the way it turns out all too often :dumb2:

I remember when we were kids we went on vacation and our neighbors down the street had a party, some drunk lady came into our backyard and fell off our pool ladder and broke her ankle and sued my parents for the medical bills and she won :wtf:

That is SERIOUSLY Messed Up, If there were TRUE JUSTICE, She would be getting Charged with Trespassing, not passing "GO" and collecting $200, but I bet she got a lot more than $200, that she didn't Deserve.

Cases like that are so WRONG, and I just don't understand the (Lack of) Mentality that awards those judgments :confused:

I feel for you, as they say, "But for the Grace of God, There go I"

Doug :cheers:

You would think that someone would REALLY NEED it to steal Firewood:( The value is low enough, and the Time and EFFORT needed to steal it great enough, that I am surprised at just how often you hear about Firewood getting stolen:confused:

There are so many other things that a Dirt Ball, I mean Thief could steal much more quickly and with less effort, and then sell much more quickly and easily, that I just don't understand it, but some people will steal almost anything, if they think that they can get away with it :(:(:(


Doug :cheers:
I had it stolen a couple times when it was out front and not fenced in.

There's a few near where I live. A buddy of mine has had a restraining order served on one that threatened him. Recently my brother saw the tweaker with a couple nice expensive saws in his truck bed that the guy bragged about stealing from someone. Pisses me off. Ya can't do nothing 'cause it's too big of a hassle and the saws would probably be gone before the cops did anything.

Depends how motivated you are to take it to the next level. Something can always be done.

My oldest son got into meth and got a 'hotshot' to the neck by another unknown fool. He died at a lake, horribly. I was thrown into his entire drug culture for yrs trying to save him or do something for them. They are absolutely devoid of conscience about stealing stuff. Everything they have/had has been stolen at least once and so they think turnabout is fair play. You have vacuoles (holes) in your brain when you do meth long enough so you can't assign logic to anything they do.

I had $8,000 worth of hand tools and power equipment stolen from my garage. I'm pretty sure my son engineered the theft but was not present. I had a renter's insurance policy with Geico. They paid me $1,500....said all the tools were old and depreciated them to almost zero. Make sure you have replacement insurance. The theft was many yrs ago, but I never got over it and that phony insurance co.

Eons ago, renters ins, replacement type, tried to beat me down( old used yada yada) on some items that were stolen offering apx 1/6th of any kind of replacement cost would be. As it was cash "OR" supply the replacement the joke was on them as I opted for them to supply the replacement knowing full well that their cost was going to be somewhere in the $2500 per item area if they could find any of them and they would have to spend a lot of resources to locate said items. That little word OR makes a big difference. Their offer changed very quickly after that discussion.

In the Peoples Republic of Seattle being poor or addicted to drugs may become a statutory defense for property crimes. If the thief can prove he/she had an immediate need for food or drugs he/she could invoke the defense. A member of the city counsel proposed the law and it is being seriously debated. It would be funny if they were not actually giving it serious consideration. Not sure who I hate more; the tweekers or the counsel members.
