My uncle is just over 70. He gets his bike stolen from his condo in FL. I guess all the scumbags hang out at the bus station nearby. He gets my cousin (his daughter) who is in her early 30 to drive him to the bus station all while she's got her barely year old daughter in the car seat in the back.

He sees his bike and confronts the guy with it at the bus station. No he wasn't armed, he's a retired guy from MA. Surprisingly he gets his bike back but not after he pays the guy 20 bucks.

A buddy of mine had his bike stolen recently. Found it for sale on Craigslist and showed up to get it with the cops. Dickhead thief went off to jail in cuffs, win-win.

In before the "its only $20.00" pussies. FUCK NO! Its the priciple of the damn thing.
No gun, baby on board, pay the thief? Weapons grade stupid.

20 bucks no big deal, happy to hear he didn't get hurt, the old timer's got some BALLS good for him.
But probably not the best move

If I stole some dude's bike in my hood and he showed up with a chick and an infant in the car demanding it back, I'd simply assume he was armed and intended to kill me over his Schwinn. I'd hand it over with an apology.

Of course, this is Texas.

I'll give that a 7.5 on the stupidometer.

Sounds like he just tought the dirtbag how to make $20 whenever he wants to.

I think the 70 year old guy and big balls to even confront the guy.
Sounds like a good deal to pay $20.00 to get it back without a
big fight or something happening.

Bike thief will now be back for his $20 on a regular basis.

And we wonder how the entitlement generation got where it is......

"I can steal it and you'll pay me for it? Cool! Welfare check is due next week!"

Risk the safety of multiple family members to pay for recovering stolen property?

Why do people get butthurt when you tell them that is incredibly stupid?

My 70 year old father does dumb stuff like that sometimes. Is it inconceivable to middle class and up white people that others have no problem getting violent and don't live in the same world that they do?

On a stupid scale of one to DU, I think that rates three bananas and a clowncar
