    Its on all the local news now with his picture and a reward for information. Looks like there were 2 people involved. Then of course they followed that up with the report of the new iPhone prototype video.
    Shouldn't be to long till someone turns him in and his buddy for the reward. I for one will be keeping a eye out for him. Use the reward for a new 4G
    No doubt, this guy will be caught. And, of course, the local news has to put their lame spin on things.

    I would not be surprised to see something like this happen again at Park Meadows.

    This is more the reason to carry a gun, IMO (since our great state allows it). If the guy really wanted to take a bullet to the crotchal region, he may have my iPad.

    Ohh everyone feels bad for african- american communities that they get steretyped for this ****** actions. Well if it soo out of the way it wouldnt make its way into stereotipical ****. Blacks are filling up jail more than 75% is that stereotype? No its a fact. Hispanics are right behind. Its just a hard truth to swallow. Call me rasist or what u want. It is what it is. Maybe 2% of hard working blacks will be ashamed of this ***** every one else knows that thats they way
    ^^Well put...Just make sure you wear your white hat/mask when speaking in public. It's safer that way

    If you're going to steal, steal from the store like a hero, not a paying customer.

    On a side note, the poor guy is probably going to miss his iPad more than his finger. Heh.. Ahem.. Cough. Uh, Too soon?

    WOW just read about this, I bought a new unopened iPad from a guy at the gas station for $150 cash on the corner of Colfax and Chambers yesterday.








    Just Playing!!

    This really is a shame I think Apple should step up and hook him up for losing his finger. I hope that guy gets his.

    Let's keep it on topic. Race is not the issue here. It's a stolen iPad. From here on it anything off topic will be removed.

    Watch out at Perimeter Mall in Atlanta. This has happened to people before. They've watched for people coming out with Apple bags, and then assaulted them in the parking lot. All the more reason for concealed carry laws to be opened up. A few of these guys get some extra breathing holes and this crap would stop. I don't understand why people don't get that.

    He didn't mean him any harm? What is stealing something from him then? A favor? A thoughtful consideration that he wanted it more than the guy who paid for it? You give the benefit of the doubt to a lowlife thief? This is why thieves get away with this stuff, because 'they didn't mean any harm other than to steal from him'. How is that even logical?

    That's where you don't think like a thief then, and that's half the problem. People tend to believe that what thieves do is in some way rational and thought out. Does he think it isn't worth ripping this dudes finger off? Obviously not. Stop and think what that iPad is worth when you stole it from someone (meaning you didn't pay out of pocket for it), thereby making 100% profit from your grab. They only care what they can get out of something they steal, not what it's 'market' value is, or what emotional feelings people have for it. Would that guy pay $499 for one? Of course not, that's why he stole it. Criminals are not what you see one TV. They are brutal, completely devoid of emotion, and they are out to make a buck. He doesn't care what the value is to someone unless they are buying it, market value doesn't come into the picture at any time.

    Not a directed observation about you Bluprint, but it's absolutely mind boggling the logic people stumble around with from day to day. Seems most people think (or are brainwashed by corporate media and television 'dramas') that criminals actually care, give a damn about you and your belongings, or are like neatly packaged 'bad guys' on TV. TV is not real life. Criminals WILL hurt you or kill you to get what they want, and the only way to stop them is to fight back with 10x the force they inflict upon you. The police will not save you, will not prevent or deter a crime, and criminals are not punished to fit the crimes they commit. Everyone needs to fight back every chance they get.

    justice served.
    He won't be though. Small thefts like this are a goldmine for police to request more funding for crime deterrent. RARELY is justice ever served. Look at all aspects of this society. Football players raping women, sports stars driving drunk and killing people on the sidewalk, government officials lying through their teeth and getting away with it. Justice in almost NEVER served in this country. If you've got money, or you make it easier for the majority of cops that are corrupt increase funding, you get away scott free. Police/politicians/judges only care about money/power/and the title. They don't protect anyone they don't make money off of.

    So every time someone doesn't have their head on a swivel and protect their property and person a company should eat the cost? If I were Apple I'd chalk it up to sh*tty luck and say 'Sorry Dude'. The issue of firearms ban in a public place like a mall has killed more people than it has saved. It's a stupid law and I don't follow it. I'll take my chances with getting caught, but I won't take chances with getting stabbed to death or shot by a lowlife.

    A repeat offender that should have NEVER been allowed out in public. The failure of the system allowed this worthless human to be out in public and murder 8 people. The system doesn't work, and it never will under it's current structure and corruption.
