This is freakin' awesome

Cyclist spots stolen bike on Craigslist, steals it back

Quote
Danny Lesh is an avid cyclist -- and now he's also somewhat of a vigilante, after he found his stolen bike online and managed to get it back.

Lesh's Cannondale hybrid was stolen after he loaned it to a friend who'd secured it with a cable lock, which are easy to cut if you're a theft with a pair of boltcutters handy.

But Lesh located the bike on Craiglist shortly after last weekend's theft -- his bike had a prominent sticker on it, so he was certain it was his.

Read the original report at NBCWashington.com

The ad asked for $100, and Lesh called the police, who told him they wouldn't be able to respond right away. But Lesh, who'd paid $600 for it back in 1998, wasn't about to let someone else end up with his bike.

"I knew I had to do it that day, or else I'd never see the bike again," he said.

He arranged to buy his bike back. A man came out of an alley at 5th and Longfellow streets NW with the bike, and Lesh took it for a "test ride."

Lesh simply rode off without paying.

"This guy finally started calling me, and left a message saying he was going to call the police," Lesh said, laughing.

When Lesh got home, he put up his own post on Craigslist, warning other site users about the thief, saying high-end bikes listed for low prices could be stolen.

"Honestly... I couldn't help feeling bad for all the other people he'd stolen bikes from," Lesh said.

D.C. Police advise citizens against trying to recover stolen property on their own, but Lesh was glad to rip off the crook he says got him first.

"I'm glad that, hopefully, his business is interrupted a little bit," he said.

The story ends there, but wonder if the police could do anything further?

Awesome!

Oh, and  f u ck  the police. Like they were going to give a rats ass about a stolen bike or do anything about it. I'm glad that Lesh was able to get his bike back on his own terms.

40-year anniversary of iconic Vietnam War photo

At least this has a happy ending. I always thought that little girl perishes in the war. So it came as a shock to see that not only did she survive, but was thriving as well.

Good Samaritan pays towing bills for woman set on fire\


Quote
By NBCMiami.com
A good Samaritan has agreed to pay the bills of a woman set alight by her estranged boyfriend, according to reports.


Breton, 34, was set on fire at a Boynton Beach, Fla., gas station and was later billed more than $500 for towing services, WPTV reported. Breton was billed after her car and her boyfriend's car, which remains under her name, were towed from the scene.

According to the station, the stranger, who wished to remain anonymous, saw Breton's story on air and decided to help.


"You're going to make me cry," Breton told the anonymous woman, according to WPTV.

The woman said she was surprised Breton was being billed and that no one had offered to help make payments.

"Perfect stranger. She didn't know me, she didn't have to do what she did for me," said Breton.

Breton's boyfriend, 52-year-old Roosevelt Mondesir, faces a charge of attempted first-degree murder for the attack.

This is awesome news. Common sense prevails.

No charges for Texas father who killed daughter's alleged molester

Quote
SHINER, Texas -- Hearing his 5-year-old daughter crying from behind a barn, a father ran and discovered the unthinkable: A man molesting her. The father pulled the man off his daughter, authorities say, and started pummeling him to death with his fists.

With his daughter finally safe, the father frantically called 911, begging a dispatcher to find his rural ranch and send an ambulance. "Come on! This guy is going to die on me!" the man is heard screaming on the 911 call. "I don't know what to do!"

A recording of the tape was played during a news conference Tuesday where the Lavaca County district attorney and sheriff announced that the father will not face charges.

More...

The fact that they were even considering prosecuting the father makes those pursuing the matter as a Fail. But for common sense, it gets a Win.

Why are these kids and to some extent the parents, not being charged with assault with a deadly weapon? It may be semantics, but it is exactly that. An object used on another person against their will. Can't be anymore clearer than that.

dunno... I was amazed at how clueless the parent was about her daughter's actions.
