    Oh, thank goodness, the Wii is safe. :|
    Really, what was that shot for?

    And yeah, lady, I`m pretty sure that being charged by criminals for auto theft wasn`t really his biggest concern at the time. :|

    i guess he didn`t have any sharp object at hand otherwise he would have slashed the tires. either that or he could have just taken the keys.

    but i guess when you are getting robbed the adrenaline pumping through your veins doesn`t allow you to think thoroughly.

    lol good for that guy. Who cares if it wasn`t the "safest thing". He saw an opportunity and took it. People are pansies these days I swear.

    And also the day that guy gets charged with "stealing" their car, is the day I pack up and move to...hrmm...Canada. Our Legal system is f*ucked.

    aznclueless, now if you see a van with no one in it, and the owners are robbing your house, are you gonna ride the van away or slash the tires

    if you slash the tires they can take a weapon and kill you, if you ride the van just had a whole lot more fun

    OK so your being burgled, and when you try to stop them the only way you know how you can get arrested for it?
    Someone seriously needs to re-evaluate the Law`s priorities here.

    Even funnier; he grabs the keys, locks all the doors to the van, and calls the cops.

    The crooks come running out with the loot, find the doors locked and start blaming each other for locking them: "Holy crap Skeeter, what`d you do you with the keys moron?".

    "Shut-up Needle-dick, I din`t do nothing, YOU had the keys last, and YOU locked the doors"

    "No You did"

    "No, you"

    I can visualize them patting themselves down trying to figure out where the keys are.

    Actually, in most states, because of good samaritan laws, the guy could not be charged with auto theft because he took the van in order to stop the commission of a crime.

    ...alright, I made that up, but that should be the case.

    You`re right digganob... there`s no way a jury would convict.

    Heck, that`d have to be after the police arrested you, the D.A. decided to prosecute, AND a judge let it go to trial. There would be so many hurdles to even get to a jury, but there`s no way they`d convict if it did.

    A new alarm system, good idea. 45 S&W, most likely a good idea as well.

    The van was being used in commission of a crime. The fact that he contacted the police immediately and informed of his actions as well as complied with the operators orders gives great vitality that there was no malice in his action. I do not think a prosecutor would invest much time in this case.

    Good thing he wasn`t arrested for the van thing, though it makes sense that they didn`t just drop that. It`s pretty unusual.

    This is just another of many reasons I`m keeping a loaded, unsafetied shotgun in my bedroom and a pistol in my office at all times when I own a home. I heard you`re supposed to kill your intruder. Never leave evidence. I`d love it if some gangster wannabe came running into my bedroom to find a blast of buckshot in their eyes.

    i`m glad they didn`t try to screw him over for grand theft auto... I almost expected them to, the way the government is these days. My only solace is that many decisions are made by a jury consisting of real people (as opposed to mofo gov`t officials)
