You know you set out a pretty good definition of theft, then you brought up the fact that he should be hand less by the letter of a ancient set of laws that easily could have been embellished over the years of translation. So with that in mind, do you deserve to have your hands? You have NEVER taken anything that doesn't belong to you? Ignorance is not bliss when it comes to eyes of the law, which you seem to agree with black and white based off of previous post. Not saying theft is right, but just before you talk about cutting peoples hands off, make sure you should be able to point that finger in the first place
When you let someone borrow something, even if they dont return it on time, it's not theft. It's a civil matter, not a criminal one.
At least that's what the pigs themself told me when I complained about a power saw i loaned to a neighbour
lets try this again?
you borrow a book from the library (there is a clue), you forget to return it, not theft
