He would'nt have gotten away with that where I come from ( P.A.T. ) québec...
An ass whooping would've been the right thing to do, you just follow the guy further away from the train station and Wham!! Kick in the face!!! Or at least a good beat down, a little discipline through a hard beating and will maybe think twice about it. We had one dude in our group steal ( something I cannot mention on ATS because of T&C, deny ignorance? Anyway...) and we filmed our buddy whoop his ass on camera, was well worth it. Lie! Cheat! And Steal!!
Do your own justice is my advice, cuz the system won't do you much good.
Peace Love and understanding my friends and maybe we won't see as much disgrace in our societies

How could he do that? He didn't know the lady in question, he just saw the guy going through her stuff and grabbing her phone. Read attentivly my brother.

I hate thieves! I would have started a fight and dealt with the consequences later.

Dont equate a common thief to socialism, equate it to the financial oppression of capitalism on ordinary people - If you wanna put a political spin on this.

This guy is scum, i hope they catch him.

The guy filming should have yelled to the guards (at the end of the video) that the thief had a GUN on him instead of a stolen phone!! With this occurring in the area of London, those guards would have trampled old women and little toddlers while breaking their own legs just to swarm and take-down the thief if they thought he had a gun.

They would rather ram a school bus full of kids off of a cliff if it got in the way of a chase involving a decent and orderly citizen there who they discovered kept a gun on themselves for personal protection to defend themselves against scumbag thugs of society.

Brits and their priorities...

Brits and their priorities
, that's a bit harsh. You've got to remember, England is a fairly small place, there's not endless land for hunters to roam about shooting stuff to eat. There's only a few legitimate reasons to own a gun in England. Some land workers, ie, farmer, game keeper etc and sports shooters, of which there are very few. Apart from those folk with a reason to own a gun, the only other guns about are in the hands of criminals. I'm glad we have strict gun laws. I don't know a single person that knows anyone who has been shot. I want to keep it that way.

There's plenty of Brits who would have 'detained' the thief, without the use of a gun and probably more still, who would have kicked the daylights out of him, without a gun. This happened on a late night train don't forget, that sort of train is usually quite empty at that time of night. The guy filming obviously didn't feel comfortable with having a fight, he was an Aussie anyways.
Don't tar a whole country with the same brush eh, you make yourself look a bit silly.
