You should support the movement all the more so. Dont you remember before they put meters on water?
Plus, stolen water taste sweet.

You go get your $1.25 back man! You're absolutely right, those arrogant little punks stole maybe just over a dollar from you. Wtf is that? A whole dollar! If this was the 60s that dollar would've been worth twenty of today's dollars. Right now it's like 3 cents per dollar.
Tell them you demand your payment in silver! One silver dollar, NOW!

Theft is theft....
Entitlement mentality is an entitlement mentality.
I'll bet clean filtered city water is another "basic human right"? (which should be provided free of charge?).

How do you know they weren't going to brew up a bunch of TEA, and have a party?
How much money will this cost you? Send the bill to the City.

I am walking up the street and see 2 dirtyish looking guys filling 4 giant water bottles
This costs money and they aren't the ones paying for it.
Who is the one paying for the water? Are we to assume that it is you? Would be nice of you to clarify.

BTW, water isn't that expensive but getting permission is the polite thing to do.


bread isnt really that expensive, so its cool if they come in your house and take some cause they are hungry right?

The unasked question:

Were they filling their bottles from your tap which is located on your property?

-or-

Were they filling their bottles from a public tap, not located on your property?

Pics & police report, or it didn't happen.


U2U me your address and I'll send you a couple of nickles to cover the cost of your water.

Yes theft is theft, is inexcusable, and being polite is not a hard thing to do.
But clean water USED TO BE free in the US. No meters. like in the 60s and later!

The taking without asking wouldnt really bother me. At least not nearly as much as having complete strangers right up against my home turning on the outside faucet. That's how people get shot.

The trespass is the big violation. If they're brazen enough to step foot onto your property, walk up to the house and turn on your faucet I'd bet that walking into an unlocked door and checking the contents of your refrigerator isnt exactly out of the realm of possibility.

I thought the occupy movement was in downtown cores. Is your house downtown? If they are stealing your water from an outside tap this would mean you might have a lawn or garden...downtown next to corporate buildings?

But if you are in the burbs and I think you are, it's a lot of work to travel that far for water wouldn't you think?

Me smells trolls...

I think the point most are missing here is that if they had asked they would have been allowed to take the water. It doesn't matter how much what they stole was worth, it's that they stole it in the first place!

My neighbors have been stealing my water and electricity for a while, when I found out I disconnected the hose and the electric cord, they didn't ask and it was STEALING! Had they asked is it OK if I plug this in here my electricity isn't on yet, I would have said yes no problem but they didn't ask, they just took!

I understand the problem and am sorry they stole from you.

You know what? Maybe calling the cops was a bit extreme, I don't know, I wasn't there. But the point the OP has continuously made, is that they should have asked. He is absolutely right. It would have taken then all of what? A minute?
If someone comes on my property and ASKS for something, sure. Come on my property and take something without permission? I will make an issue of it no matter what it is.

It's called common courtesy, and it is sorely lacking in this day and age.

This is pathetic though.

Humans denying other humans to water?

Calling the cops?

Wow....humanity is selfish and heartless these days.

Humans should never have to ask for water, it's a human right.
That water belongs to everyone, stop being aqua-imperialists.

No they were clearly trespassing and it was on the property.
I had to shut the valve on the inside to make sure it doesn't happen again.

If it was on your property, then it is trespassing and theft... you had every right to call the authorities

You can pretend water is your "property" all you want, but it's just BS.

Water is from Earth, humans are from Earth, that water belongs to everyone.

Denying it on grounds of if they didn't ask, is just selfish and inhuman.
