The Stealth Hippopotamus: Steals from the government (as he sees it) and give to the people


That is actually Robin Hood!


I say give him a bow and a target with an arrow in the bullseye. If he can split the arrow with his shot, then let him off.

Agreed, but only if he fires one arrow into the air, hits that arrow with a second arrow and the first arrow ends up splitting the arrow on the bullseye.


Well, I know what I'm trying after work....

Tatsuma: ... what the fark is wrong with you people?

This man robbed a bank, kept tens of thousands of dollars for himself, probably hid away some more, gave thousands to his friends, but because he said 'fark bailouts' and gave some to other homeless people (who happen to be personal friends, as he was himself homeless), suddenly what he did is heroic and justified?

What the fark.


I'm sure the glowing praise of the anonymous internet cellar-dwellers will comfort this guy as he prepares to go to jail for a decade.

Go the fark home, aussie. This AMERICA, got-dammit! Our wealth redistribution only goes one way, and it's not from top to bottom. You take your evil socialism back to the land of nightmares. Those bankers worked hard for those bailouts. If those homeless bums wanted a bailout, they should have hired better lobbyists.

Last week, a U.S. District judge told Donaldson he could not argue before the jury that his actions were justified.

This legal defense is only available to the banks.

Tatsuma: Communist_Manifesto: The reason people don't have a problem with stealing from banks is because the banks may have farked up the entire world economy and caused a lot of grief/harm to people.

Actual bank are merely entities, it's the people who control the banks who did all of these things.

Can I go out and start murdering them? It is, after all, comeuppance.

Communist_Manifesto: the people at that bank in Wyoming probably had nothing to do with the actions of the bank at large, but I can at least understand both robbing it and being okay with the guy doing it.

Gangbangers in America are responsible for the death of lots of innocents. If I have a relative who dies in a drive-by, can I just walk up to any gang-banger and shoot him in the head? After all, it might not be this individual who is responsible, but well he's in a group responsible for most of these crimes.


I doubt anyone would complain to much if you did.
for that matter I doubt anyone would care that much at all.

Ive always thought. If one is a member of an outlaw group.
IE. Hells angles bloods crips mafia. Why are they given the same legal protection as anyone else. By definition they belong to an organization bent on breaking law.

who cares if john Q public goes all charles bronson on them?
theyve got it coming

Tatsuma: Communist_Manifesto: I never said the guy was justified, I even said it wasn't right. Go fark yourself troll

You said you could empathize with it earlier and 'while you might not be ok', not stating whether you actually were or not.

And please, do you even know what a troll is? Hint: much like hipster, the definition is not 'everything I loathe and despise'


You don't understand.

Just because something is wrong doesn't mean you can't sympathize with it.

For example, if one of your family members were assaulted, it's only natural that you go out and seek revenge.

It's just in this case you ended up beating the kid brother of the guy who committed the actual assault.  But they're in the same family so it's close enough.

So in other words, this guy blatantly confessed to it, and gave the judge every reason to sentence him not only for armed robbery, but to even tack on terrorism charges as well for it being politically motivated.

BRILLIANT.

I bet that defense attorney sat down with a facepalm after he had to tell the jury that.

No, no it's not. It's not the same thing at all.

Communist_Manifesto: I said nothing about justifying homicide mr. strawman.

Oh so only crimes that might lead to murder, like robbing a bank, are justified, but not straight up murder?

The Stealth Hippopotamus: timujin: I'd say this is an excellent case for jury nullification, but he's not allowed to discuss his motives. Also, what's up with that shiat? If he'd killed some dude because he was sleeping with his wife, the prosecution could use that motivation as evidence.

I guarantee you that if he was robbing minority owned banks cause he didn't like "darkies" having banks he would be facing a new bunch of new charges.


What minority owned banks exist?
