Im pissed seeing such jerk ..
especially after listening to what he said for his defense

For once the thief was caught .. the good news
usualy they are very carefull on their crime
this time Karma hit one right in the jaw.. mather of speaking



Liveleak


According to British Transport Police (BTP), the owner of the phone is a 34-year-old woman from East Molesey.

She went to collect her bag from Guildford station and found a note from Mr Parker explaining why her phone was missing. She then called BTP to report the incident.

Detective Sergeant Daren Bates said: “We’d like to thank Mr Parker for bringing this to our attention and pay tribute to his quick-thinking in capturing this man’s actions on video.

“The incident is being investigated and we’ll do all we can to identify the man responsible for this very shameless and brazen theft.

“If you recognise the man pictured in the image, or have any information that could assist our investigation, we want to hear from you.”



This guy doesnt even care if he was caught
refused to give it back to the lady
and dont want to be touched at all by the guy who caught him
was he going to call the cops ? or what ...

Probably had a weapon and was ready to use it
i dont know why he didnt put it in his pocket in the first place
he had the phone in his hands the whole time
i would have maybe tempted my chances to snatch the phone quickly
but touching him .. the cops would probably arrest you to
stealing someone propriety ?? its considered not that bad compare if you touch him

I want everyones answer on that ..
what would you do in similar circonstances ?

I think it was the best way to deal with him
giving him a yelling speech of Savoir Vivre
and take his pictures .. better a video
and release everything on the net

the guy is over .. he will be caught one day or another

So if you see this guy .. please report it to the police
he probably steal others prropriety each day
with a dozen of iphones in his place

Does this guy look like someone we can trust
i can see deep in his eyes .. that he his a scumbag

Anyone recognize this dikk in UK ? near the train stations



We dont need these freak in a society that still try hard to be peacefull with one and another
at least give him 1 yrs in prison to think about stealing again

This is socialism in action, he was making a political statement. He was not taking it from the woman he was giving it to himself.

I had a weird impression that he knew exactly what he was doing
he looked like he knew the law

That a thief cannot even be touched after being caught ..
report to the police is recommanded
he would have more rights then you if you touch him

Damn this socialism really f****ed up our world

Kudos to that guy for video taping him and exposing the thief !

His picture plastered everywhere will sure make him think twice about taking someone else phone


But what does this say to people and their property? how careless we are.

Even the guy video taping left his laptop unattended for someone else to steal lol.

We really need some self responsibility courses for people. Amazes me how careless one can be.

When something is stolen from me , i don't blame the thief , i blame my self for giving him the oppurtunity. I blame my self for being so careless , and i learn and make sure in the future i don't be so careless

You sir are quite gentle I suppose I would ,no doubt,be explaining to police why I forcefully extracted said phone away from the smart ass boy.

Its not socialism, its simple theft.

UK law allows a private citizen to use reasonable force, to restrain a thief while waiting for the police to arrive, if you catch one in the act. That doesn't mean you can take him to the floor, and kick him in the head, repeatedly, which is probably what they deserve, but you can prevent them from leaving by blocking their way, holding on to them, etc.

This has nothing to do with socialism,, but if it makes you feel better.

This guy is a thief, thieves are quite common in all society's. It's more a representation of the lack of respect people have for each other nowadays, more a product of individualist behavior, no care for anyone but themselves. Hardly a socialist ideal.

If this happened in the US, he would have been on the ground with a few missing teeth, and the witnesses would claim that he tripped on the subway car. Piece of human filth that guy is.

I would have personally gotten him into a headlock until he passed out, returned the phone, and THEN called the cops. Crooks make me so angry.

The headlock, would probably be viewed as reasonable force. as it's a restraint. The "until they passed out", would be classed as assault, unless you could justify the act by proving you were in fear of your life.

Head locks

this is indeed my prefered method
i remember doing that a few time when i was young
work every time ahah

You have less chance of him wounding you
and the guy stay safe and clean at the same time until the cops comes

there is always a risk of him being to fast with a knife
scum bags like this usualy always have a knife
somewhere ready to strike if caught

The guy filming was maybe scared of the thief having exactly that
would you not ? . a desesperate thief cornered will try to escape by all means

Witness 1: Officer, we saw the thief with a knife!
Witness 2: Yeah!
Me: I felt in fear of my life Mr. LEO, so I put him in a sleeper hold!


Problem solved.

I have a feeling that by the end of this thread the thief will be a full blow rapist and will be waiving a gun around to justify killing him. People are already starting in with the "what if he had a knife" lets see where this goes.

I was just stating how it would go down in a crowded subway in NYC. Like I said, if I caught him in the act and had it on tape, I'd hold him in a headlock till the authorities arrived. That's a lot nicer treatment than some of the people in NYC would give him. My little scenario is an example of that.

I think the guy filming the video handled it well, personally I probably would of dished out some more immediate vigilante justice, a phone is more than just a simple phone these days, the owner may of been totally stranded without it.

Personally, I'd prefer a wrist control as I learned in Jiu-jitsu.

They struggle, they break their own wrist. They don't struggle, the only way they can alleviate the pain of the wristlock, is to drop down to their knees, which is satisfyingly humiliating for them.

I think it's good that he confronted him, but to start filming him seems a bit..extreme.

I don't know, it's probably because I don't like cameras.

The reasonable force law in the uk states,you are allowed the use of a pre-emtive strike if you feel in danger.
So when explaining to the police allways start with "I felt threatend",or even better"I was scared of being hurt or killed" This makes a quick punch to the throat totally legal,just dont kick him when he is down,that will get you nicked.
There is so much confusion about the law in this area that people are scared to act.

I have to agree with you sir, martial arts solves this problem weapon or not. When they break they're own arm trying to escape it's their own fault.

As long as they dont know that all they have to do is push thier elbow forwards and wrist controll fails.

wow! This guy had plenty of opportunities to kick this thief right in the face! What a loser both of them are. If I saw someone steal from another like this, videoing would have happened after the face kick! LOL we live in such a loser world filled with losers! and it looks like the security guard didn't do a damn thing either.

Now go have some tea!
