This would have been a great opportunity to use the irony tag (and then argue if it was warranted). Oh well.

Not surprising.
At least when we were teenagers, we only took signs and construction blinkers from places where their going missing wouldn't CAUSE DEATH. I mean, I actually though about shiat like that, "Hey, lets have fun, but don't get anybody killed."
Stupid kids nowadays.

I dunno, that seems like a perfect use of the word.

Stealing stop signs. Runs a stop sign. Killed while doing it.

Oh, and not wearing a seat belt. IMO he's a prime candidate for a Darwin.

This is nothing compared to the guy killed stealing stop signs who was hit by a car that failed to stop for the now-missing sign.

Or that one guy who was removing roadsigns and because of their removal he got t-boned and died.

One question: did his truck have floorboards at the time, and if so, were they made from signs?

It's no victory dying doing what you love.
That's just stupid.
Living a long time and looking back on all those times you did what you loved, that's sweet.

There once was a kid who liked to steal signs that said stop
Said he, 'who's gonna stop me, a cop?'
But he ran a sign that was red
And now the douchebag is dead
Because a semi made him go Plop!

From the comments:

As Americans we are supposed to be there for each other not kick one another wen the other is down. This is why America is losing its greatness because of ignorance like this. Its so easy to flap ur jaws when no one knows who you trully are is this the cowardess that has become America. try being there for your neighbor.

Ignorance ... like stealing stop signs which can easily lead to traffic accidents? Try being there for your neighbor? Like the one that gets hit by a driver on a cross street because this ass hat stole a sign?

Man Nic Williams is on a tear in the comments:

You come up with that all by yourself or did it just smack u in the head like the floor did when you were a baby warped

Try being there for your fellow commenter Nic.

Dead at the scene? In my experience, it normally takes a doctor to declare death ... unless there's decomposition or decapitation.

It would be extra points if one of the stop signs flopping around in the back of the truck were responsible for that.
 
2012-09-24 11:18:18 AM  
He should have stopped....wearing earrings like a douche.

I know it's all hip and shiat to fight the system, but when that system is designed to save your useless life, it's probably not the best idea.

Wow I am stunned.

It is amazing on so many levels - would have been only topped if the bastard who killed this young delinquent had driven through a recently stop-sign-denuded intersection.

A Peterbilt is usually quite capable of causing that.

It does indeed take a physician, in NJ at least. However they have their paramedics that act as field nurses, corresponding information on the pt's status. Based on the information given, usually via phone, their controlling ER physician then makes the pronouncement.

There are a whole host of obvious death indicators. The most likely in this case would be 'injuries incompatible with life'.

/have seen a few traumatic fatalities
//seen more pronouncements on scene from medical causes

Yeah we had a case like that there the local cops declared a guy dead. Someone complained about them not having the training to deal with and the chief responded with "Well his head was in the median and his torso was on the shoulder, so he was either dead or a zombie."

In the UK a paramedic can pronounce life extinct if the body is mullahed.

There have been so many thefts of road signs (for the scrap metal value) round here that the replacements are now made of plastic. Also manhole covers and drain grids.

A complicated suicide.

I saw an old lady get arrested out side of the grocery store near my house on Saturday. She had been stealing road signs around the neighborhood. I found it hard to believe since she had a cane and moved pretty slow, but a few people around the area confirmed the story and gave statements to the cops.

I too, am delighted that he was killed and this thefts discovered before anyone else was injured, or worse.

I had an 01 dodge with the cummins ISB, at 80k miles the engine was worth more than the non rust proofed body.

Serves him right for not finishing his job. If he would have stopped and stolen that sign instead of running it, he'd still be alive!

He got T-boned by a semi. The hit was hard enough that it deflected the semi off the road and seriously injured the driver. They probably needed to pick up the douchbag kid with a squeegee.
