Police arrested a California couple on Monday after they allegedly held a handyman hostage and forced him to do home repairs, CBS San Francisco reports.


It's stories like this, and pretty much any news from Florida that leads me to feel that America is descending into some sort of barbaric savage land ala Mike Judge's Idiocracy


Investigators said the 50-year-old handyman was lured to the 4,600 square foot home south of San Jose Monday morning where 36-year-old Jason DeJesus and 33-year-old Chanelle Troedson beat and threatened to kill him, forcing him to fix several items in the house over a six-hour span. The repairs included a dishwasher and a broken door

Where could I kidnap someone to remodel my bathroom? It is a 1970's build with that little tile on the floor and white ceramic tile on the walls of the tub area.

I am willing to feed and give beer to my handyman while I am holding them captive.

I always have a gun and many knifes(in my tools)
When I go to people's houses, you never know what
Could happen in a moments time. Jeez, what the hell
Ever happened to "being prepared?"

I say you had it coming, sad. But the guy probably had a nail gun for the door.
Have some balls man, your in construction!!

Or maybe he was put in such a position
That he couldn't, anyhow, what a shame.

Dang it! Why didn't I think of that?

Now that these dummies got caught the cat is out of the bag. I'll never get away with it now!

Difference is I would ply the handyman with cheesecake and hot cocoa with marshmallows to bend him to my will...Mwaaaahaaahaaa!!!

Hmm I've been doing too much remodeling myself. That is a creative way to get it done


YouTube do-it-yourself videos have saved me more than once with some of my projects. Watching a couple videos and fixing your own door and dishwasher would be much easier than planning and going through a whole kidnapping thing I would think. Less exciting though I guess.

Weird people these days...

Oh i was prepared. I always carry my berretta on my person at job sites, some of which are in the woods. I walked into the home that time and was looking down the barrel of a 7mm magnum rifle as I walked in. no time for anything. the guy was a nut recently off prozac

I suppose this falls under the stupid criminals category. Er um... The victum knows where they live. And using a gun makes it a federal offense. They will not be home anytime soon to enjoy their repairs.

Oh madness incarnate.

Not only is this supposedly normal, but you all carry guns when out on jobs. Construction.. carry a gun in the toolkit. Because there are nutters out there with guns.... in their toolkits?

And when a 4 yr old kills a 2 yr old with a gun he finds in his own home, it's still a great idea.

Even in this thread, a nut just off prozac has a legal gun.

You don't need any help with that.. im amazed and confounded...

yack, this thread is dangerous... I'm poking it away with a very long stick.
