>A 17-year-old Brooklyn teenager is missing an arm, and a 39-year-old man is facing attempted murder charges. This is the result of a horrific scene in New York on Friday that unfolded from a seemingly routine Craigslist transaction.
>The 39-year-old man known only as "Phil" is a regular buyer and seller of sneakers on Craigslist. He agreed to a sale with the teenager and the pair met in the middle of the day on a busy street. It's here that things went wrong. Climbing into Phil's SUV, it's reported that the 17-year-old pulled a gun on the man, took the sneakers and walked off.
>Rather than calling the police, Phil took things into his own hands. He did a quick u-turn and ran over the teenager attempting to walk away with the sneakers. The thief's arm was severed in the collision, but adrenaline caused him to run off, with one arm, before collapsing outside his house.
>The boy is in stable condition and doctors plan to reattach his arm, while Phil is facing charges.
It's ridiculous the driver is up for attempted murder, yet the teen only a gun charge.
Little dindu nuffin tried to fuckin shoot the guy point blank but the gun jammed. I hope no major jail time comes for the driver.
hmm. i have a hard time understanding other epoples poitn of view or reaction but for me ultimately this is attempted murder. now i'll go into how i feel if was selling my shoes on cl (i've sold a keyboard on htere gaming one high end). so in my transaction the dude wanted to go into my home to test the keyboard actually works i was like umm i can assure you it does but i don't feel comfortable going there (we met outside my apartment in daylight) he said 'okay i trust you' and bought it.
anyways if this dude robbed me for some shoes at gunpoint and ran off i'd just be ahppy i'm still alive nad not hurt. i would not try to retaliate and run him over which is in fact 'attempted murder'. i read about a pro gamer that sold a ps4 on there and was shot and killed over it. he's lucky this guy just took the sneaks and didn't kill him.
Only a brainwashed cuck would say he DIDN'T deserve it. Are you brainwashed, robots?
how is it ridiculous he attempted to murder the guy. that's how the legal system works if you do a crime you get charged just like the guy arm robbed him if caught he'd be charged with armed robbery.
or if you found with possession of a drug even if the drug isn't yours it's still in your possession so it's a valid charge.
>rip a 17 year old's arm off over a fucking pair of shoes
You've never been in a high stress situation anon. You enter a flight or fight response and aren't 100% in control of what you're doing unless you have decades of training. He entered fight mode there is no reason this guy should be charged. I won't even get started on black people right now
>Shit like this makes sharia law look good
Oy vey, shouldn't you be shitposting on >>>/pol/ ?
Here, I'll even attach a picture of hitler to grab your attention.
Hey, asshat. He didn't chimp out over a pair of shoes, he chimped out over some cunt almost killing him over a pair of shoes. Angry that this little shit would kill a person over a fucking pair of shoes he drove into him. It's understandable, little shits like that cunt don't deserve to be alive.
hello tuml- oh, I mean /pol/.
sorry, it's getting harder to tell the difference.
Not him but are you incapable of following logic?
It isn't about the object at hand, it's a retaliation for the attack. The object one attempted to steal or did steal is almost irrelevant. He didn't run him over to get his fucking shoes back, he ran him over because he almost shot the guy over a pair of shoes. That the little fucking turd thought so little of human life that he would be willing to kill over a pair of shoes. I'm angry that he lost his arm and not his fucking head in that crash. He clearly doesn't value life so he shouldn't have his.
I'm empathetic towards the guy because I'd be fucking pissed if someone just tried to kill me too but at the same time it's still not right except for the justice boner.
The kid should definitely be tried for attempted murder though. No doubt about that.
I don't understand why the Viking descended put up with so much of this sub human shit. There are ways to make them leave, ya kno. Look to your viking ancestors for examples for once at least.
I've been robbed at gunpoint before. I didn't try to kill the guy afterwards. I filed a police report and got my stuff back like a civilized human being. The average person's thought isn't "kill" after getting robbed.
The robber deserves life/death penalty.
But, what sort of fucking retard does a Craigslist meet in the middle of a fucking street? Go to a place that has a decent amount of cameras and people.
yeah, you can say that all you want, until you're in jail because you dared to not be beaten in the street by niggers offended with your presence for being white on a public sidewalk
while a mass of protesters who had firebombed a police precinct are allowed disturb the peace
He's going to get addition years because it was a white on black crime. Yes he deserved to be disarmed, he was armed. Fuck someone that goes around threatening peoples lives over shoes, but you can't use a vehicle as a weapon intentionally and you can defend yourself when its not legally defense.
they wouldnt be in english because that scenario would only take place in an alternate universe where niggers are somehow superior to anything and everything was upside down and the lorax was president of the united states or some other equally ridiculous shit
>Be rich white male
>attempt to murder impoverished black kid over a pair of fucking shoes
Any of you thjnk the kid deserved it need to get your heads checked, regardless of what he did the White guy should have reserved his anger and spared the poor kid
>be human being
>have other human being brandish a weapon and threaten my life for material wealth
>the socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds of both individuals should be taken into account in regards to what is an appropriate response
Nah, fuck you.
>thinking defending yourself with lethal force means you live in a shithole
Holy fucking shit. You are really some fucking beta cuck aren't you.
but the thief actually tried to murder the other guy first, but his gun jammed.
>try to shoot someone in the face over a couple of shoes, get mad when he retaliates
