He never hurt anyone, and those rich individuals he kidnapped undoubtedly have ransom insurance, so they weren't even hurt financially. What he did was wrong, but how he did it and his purpose for doing what he did make him an admirable character.

I understand that it's stories like these (in times like these) that satisfy some kind of subconscious, primitive urge for revenge or justice but......we have already established rules and laws as a community. If you do not agree with the them, taking the law into your own hands really isn't a constructive way of helping your community!!

I am really shocked by all the reactions this thread has got so far. Come on people, we are smarter than that??

Peace

I don't see anything wrong with distributing the wealth, lol. Noone has ever been harmed during his escapades. I think it's awesome. He'll be a hero.

The mans methods perhaps may be violent according to our "laws". However consider this. If you were black and living in america in the early 1800s, you were a slave. It was a LAW that determined it was ok to have a black slave. Just because it is law doesn't mean its the right law.

Now someone has questioned the validity of this story due to profanity. Tell me you don't swear when your debating.
There are sources at the bottom of the page.

Now look at our world, and what it has become and the crime that has happened. People have tried for years to take a peaceful approach. Those who have tried to take a peaceful approach have either been killed or silenced one way or another. Thats not to say that being violent is the answer, but it is one of the last ones left.

Two wrongs don't make a right but it doesn't mean the first wrong can completely go on unjustified.

Early 1900s? Someone needs to check their history.


And this is a different situation. Being held in Subjugation and fighting for freedom is in fact the exact opposite of holding someone in subjugation for their money..

I can't see this guy as a hero.

sorry, a few more then one typos in that response, as you can tell by the edits...anyway its 3 am here almost okay. Im not saying that in an ideal world this wouldn't be acceptable, because it wouldn't. However you have to consider, where does any one person say I have had enough and I can't do anything but do what they do.

You are completely missing the point that, as a society, we collectively decide what is "right" and what is "wrong". We have created laws and appointed judges for this task....accepting one man's interpretation of right/wrong is the starting point of a society collapsing

THIS is societies point of collapse? really? not the wars, corruption, theft, extortion, murder, and the list goes on, for the past 100 years? This guy is societies collapse?

You are mistaken friend, society started collapsing long before this guy decided to do something about it.

What society thinks as right/wrong, is extremely distorted today thanks to your friendly neighborhood tv channel

I guess if the authorities can't find him, I am pretty much out of luck when it comes of finding way to give him my number .


In all seriousness though, I know some people have issues with this, but I for one think we need more people like him. Laws have their place, until they oppress the people.

Assuming that, since all of us have access to a computer, we also have food in the house (applying a simple priority principle here). Now as you expect your loved-one (husband, wife, child,parents) to return home somewhere along the day, instead you get a phone call from a guy saying that, since you have food and they do not, they have taken your loved-one hostage until you hand over all the food you have stored. The fact that you have worked and bought this food to feed yourself and your loved-ones is of no concern because there are people who are starving from hunger.

I am sure most of the people commemorating this individual as a hero will be okay with this way of feeding the hungry.......right??

Peace

No, it's not this guy who is society's collapse, it's our reaction to this guy that is society's collapse!!!!

We condemn wars, we condemn corruption, we condemn all those things. That doesn't automatically mean it doesn't happen but at least we collectively agree it isn't right. That is the foundation of a society...

Peace

I wouldnt assume that...

Also he kidnapped super rich people, not the average person. And those people even said he was a good guy.

Nope, pretty sure society collapsed before our reaction to this.

This story put me in such a great mood. You can find footage of the second helicoptor escape on youtube, just type in his name and you'll find it. The sound of bullets is almost overwhelmed by the inmates cheering. Simply spectacular!

Like many others, I have a new hero! I had to create an account just to thank you for bringing this up.

That is one intelligent come back.
........


Okay, so let's say we collectively agree that anybody with "a lot of money" can be taken hostage and demanded to give his money to the poor..............then what??

Can you imagine the implications such a plan would have........I think you do.

Peace

well man I don't really know what else to say to ya. I mean we know what this guy is doing is technically 'wrong', and he shouldn't kidnap people. But he is doing SOMETHING, rather then nothing. Those people are rich because they have likely broken a law or two to get there. So someone decided he was going to take it on himself to take some of it back. Its not like he cleaned them to the skin and left them homeless.

Hes doing something, at this point anything is progress, and that is really all I can say about that.

If I had more food than I needed to survive, and people around me were going hungry, especially if any of it went to waste, then I would deserve it for being a cold selfish "B."

When you have money
everyone tries to screw you, and most want to secretly stick you in the back.
at least this guy is honestly refreshing in that regard.
Also when you have money you must provide security for it and any anything else of value you wish to protect.

that is life

compared to Micheal Chertoff the guy behind the fake underwearbomber and the bazillion dollar kiddie porn xray machine deal, or Burnie Madoff and all the regulators who helped him steal billions or George Soros the jew who helped the Nazis liberate all the other jews from their money...
this guy has class.
