Doesn't everyone that wants an iPhone have one by now? So why steal one? Who are you going to sell it to :P

That's why I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 with ATT. No one is going to want to steal that.

Typical liberal mentality.

"I want mine, even if i steal from you!"

So something has to be stolen twice before the cops care?

My phone is stupid and my TVs are all fatbacks, and I consider this all a defense against getting robbed.

/Not smart, just poor.

Why are the details slightly different in this repeat?

Can I get you guys to do me a huge favor? Can you spread the following to all your iPhone owning friends?

If someone steals your phone, or you lost it at a restaurant or some other place and it's not there when you go back for it, report it to the police immediately from that location. If not, report it from home, but tell them where you know you left it. Cause that determines jurisdiction and who is going to take the report. Also, do go online to "find your phone", or whatever, and track it down yourself before filing the report. You know what's going to happen? Cops are going to show up, ask if you filed it stolen yet. When you say no, they are going to ask where it was when it was stolen. If it's not in their jurisdiction, they are not going to to anything more than knock on the door and ask if they have your phone, if they even do that much. If the person says no, the cop is going to walk away because they have nothing to go on. They can't take a stolen item report for an incident that occurred outside of their jurisdiction. I get that you are trying to help and do what you think cops will do to track it down, but you don't know all the steps involved and you end up wasting your time and the cop's time.

I wonder if even without the real owner of the phone coming forth whether the cops would have challenged the original thief to enter the pin, or maybe identify a person to two from the phone book. Or anything else that would have established that the boy actually owned the phone. They weren't going to really let him walk away with it were they?

Bedford Avenue, Flatbush, Brooklyn. In the area that boy was trying sell it, most people can't afford Apple at retail.
