Car thief? Second offense? Send him to the chair.
How many pacifists just freaked? All of them, I’m sure, but I’m tired of this bullshit. I’ve known three people that have gotten their cars stolen over the last six months and that’s three too many. I don’t live in a high crime area – at least I never used to – and these cars were locked and not “top of the lines” but that makes the crime worse in my eyes.
How do I justify removing a human from our planet, just for stealing property? How could you not justify it? It’s pretty simple to me: there’s right and wrong. Right is not stealing cars; wrong is stealing cars. Don’t you dare post about urban feelings or how bad people feel that they don’t have a car… just don’t. I don’t have a private jet and I don’t go steal one, now do I? Why? Because it’s wrong. Shove that “psychological” crap up yer ass because it doesn’t mean anything. Don’t make excuses for criminal behavior and let people take responsibility for their immoral actions. This isn’t something that can “accidentally” happen, like manslaughter. “Oops, I accidently tripped on the curb and landed against your locked car that I broke into and started, before I could stop it.” No, this is deliberate. And if it’s not the first offense? Fry him. Get him (or her) off my planet.
A car is more than just “transportation” to most people. In many cases, it can be irreplaceable. Take my Jeep. It’s a one of a kind. If that were destroyed tomorrow, I could never get it back. I could never place it. So am I supposed to just be mollified that a thief will spend some months in prison if it were forcibly taken from me? I work my ass off for that Jeep. I worked and sweated and slaved in my office for it in addition to the years of schooling that back my career. And it’s mine. I own it. What gives someone else the right to drive off in it?
If it’s a first time, OK, fine. They’re a kid maybe and they thought they could get away with it… had a thrill. Whatever. Maybe they think it’s a victimless crime, because of insurances. But a second time? Third time? Fuck’m. Fuck’m right in the ear. Get them off the street and out of circulation. Let their friends know that they die if they steal a car. Maybe it would dissuade other would be thieves; maybe it wouldn’t, but does that matter, really? If you start removing car thieves by making it a capital crime, wouldn’t the problem eventually sort itself out? You know it would… it’s just math.
Two cars were stolen from where I live. Two. Right from outside my house, and in one case, the car next to mine. How about the fact that I have trouble falling asleep, because I’m worried that I’ll hear my car starting and driving away? That if they are so brazen as to steal a car, what would stop them from coming into my house? I feel like I’ve been violated by these bastards – they should be punished. And since the punishment no longer fits the crime, that needs to be enhanced. If they’ve done it more than once, it’s obvious that they can’t be “cured” of their problem, so get rid of them.
And if someone tries to steal my Jeep when I’m either awake or watching, be warned that you won’t get away without some sort of confrontation… those swords on my wall might be for show but they are point and the short ones are sharp and fly well… especially from a 3rd story window through a soft top.
Or better yet, maybe I need to exercise my government given right to own a shot gun… I have no kids, so I don’t have to worry about that problem. I could just leave it locked on the main floor so it’s easily gotten.
Of course, knowing me, my rabbit would some how shoot me with it, while trying to take over the world…
