A couple of years ago my mate's house was burgled while he was at work. They stole a few things, most notably a camera. The police ended up catching one of the thieves and recovered the camera. After the guy arrested refused to give up his two accomplices the police charged him and gave up investigating further. When my mate's wife showed up at the station to collect the camera, she asked if the police had tried to turn it on. They said that hadn't. Sure enough the camera contained footage of the three thieves walking down the same street my friend's house is on. And yes, the cameraman was kind enough to point the camera at his face and talk about how badass he was. The remaining two were arrested shortly afterwords.

Call it cellphone etiquette even if it's up to no good.

FTA: Dylan T. Hankewycz, 18, of no fixed address, faces charges of robbery, simple assault, theft, and receiving stolen property,\

I love how the government has found loopholes around the double jeopardy limitation in the constitution. You can't charge him from being a thief twice, but you can charge him for both robbery AND receiving stolen property.

I'm not sure exactly how one commits robbery without receiving stolen property, but what do I know.

I'd bet he had more than just the stolen phone on him, and he said "I got that from Bill". Well, it was stolen, and if he didn't steal it himself he received it.

Yes, the prosecution is full of assholes who would look for loopholes and duplication, but sometimes it's just bad reporting.

Or, you know, if you steal a phone swap in your own sim card and delete any apps with network connectivity.

Albeit that'll void most of the data-based features, but it'll let you make calls, use offline functions, and not get your stuff automatically loaded onto servers.

//Plus the standard anti-theft stuff... not a good idea to steal a smartphone, basically, it won't do you much good.

Jim_Callahan: swapping in a different SIM on an iPhone would give you a "SIM Not Recognized - Please Connect to iTunes" to register the SIM with that phone, and activate. Of course, if you've reported the phone stolen by that time the phone can be blacklisted from service or tracked/remote wiped or other fun stuff.

I'm sure (or hope) that similar can be done on Androids.

Had my phone stolen, and the perp took a half naked "duck face" photo of himself that was instantly e-mailed to me. Told the cops, and when I showed them the picture they said "I don't recognize him" and that was it.

Double Jeopardy means that once you are acquitted of a crime, you can't be re-tried for it. They can stack charges on all they want.

It still only goes to a jury once, and if that jury says "not guilty", they can't go back a second time.

That's the whole point behind the prohibition against Double Jeopardy, once acquitted of a specific criminal act you can't be retried for it. It isn't to say they can't charge you with multiple crimes for a single act if you broke multiple laws. Hard to call that a "loophole", that's the way the law and Constitution are written.

It get's better:

When you recognize white police as terrorists, you must conclude that those who give them authority are terrorists.

"When you reach that conclusion you understand that those who voted to put them in positions of power are terrorists.

"When you reach that conclusion, you must face the reality that all white people are terrorists and, ultimately, have one agenda: to continue to dominate and rule the world by oppression."
- National Black Foot Soldier Network

Seattle Black Foot Soldier Alfred "Issaquah" Shafford is calling for the National Black Foot Soldier Network to update the "ALL WHITES R TERRORISTS'" declaration first published in 2009 to also state that, until Reparations are received, all whites must also be seen as Reparations Offenders.


All Whites R Terrorists

Wow. WOW. I hadn't heard of this fellow, but his motives for those murders are pretty off. And the 'All whites are terrorists' thing is.... sad. Truly sad. There can be no healing with that. I live in a place that has a 30% first nations population and have often been the target of racism against whites, that clearly extended from the much harsher racism against natives that happens here. Many capitulate and just start hating. Some of us just make more friends and get along.

What a world.

Some jurisdictions treat it as the same crime, others as separate crime. In the latter case, it appears that timeframe (aka "when did you realize you had stolen goods in your hands?") has something to do with it. Criminal law involves a lot of specific definitions for "stealing," but some definitions for certain crimes vary by jurisdiction.

/Sorry. That does sound like a half-assed answer, doesn't it?
