My family once had a vehicle stolen, and I once had my license plate stolen.

I was the appointed DD of the night, and noticed before entering my own vehicle that it had no license plate, after having parked it in the alley behind a crowded drinking hole not far from my university.

I immediately produced a Sig Sauer pistol and a Surefire flashlight and secured the area, and then called police.

By way of a letter from the police department, I later learned the identity of the perpetrator, who as caught.

The following day, a Saturday, I was subjected to visiting one of the three DMVs open on the weekend to obtain a new license plate, and asked three times if my plate had been taken by the police for failure to have insurance or tags.

I was upset, but I got over it.

If it's a crime to skirt the intent of the constitution, then we're all victims. (Those of us who live in the US, anyway.)

Shit, I've had my property vandalized, been robbed, beaten, shot at, knifed and kidnapped in my lifetime, several of them more than once. I've also witnessed all kinds of other crap.

One time I got scammed on the EE, but a local member went to the guys house and told him to mail my shit, or the local PD was going to get involved post-haste.

Yes, my car was broken into a couple times when I lived at school. The campus bordered a hood well known by local police. I'll leave it at that.

I didn't think about stuff like that. I had someone write me a bad check for $3K and a couple of other people give me counterfeit checks to try and buy stuff. But no one in LE was interested enough to even return a phone call, so it didn't seem like much of a crime to anyone.

No, but I've been close enough to getting attacked to know that you need to be able to defend yourself with deadly force.

Got confronted by 4-6 guys 16-18 once, they wanted to pick a fight because one of thier girlfiends was checking me out.

Nothing happened because I difused the situation and walked away, but if they attacked me I would've been in serious trouble.

It was minor and juvenile, but a couple of them had knives clipped to thier pockets and if they had decided to fight I think they would've been stupid enough to try and use them.

Hit and run DUI back in 1998.

I was on my ZX6R going up Mt. Rainier at the time, totalled the bike, fooked up my shoulder.

I've had my car broken into about 8 years ago and a hit and run on my truck not too long ago.
Link Posted: 3/26/2009 10:56:45 AM EDT
Yes I have been the victim of a crime...

The police broke down my door and searched my house and did not have a search warrant.

They found a couple of my bongs and a small bag of Marijuana.

Court date came up and the judge threw the shit out because the Police broke the Law.

You may think I was the one committing the crime, however I believe it is a crime to discriminate against recreational pot smokers like myself who have an education, have held down my job for over ten years, and I pay my taxes. I smoke occasionally in the privacy of my own home.

In this case I was the victim of a crime committed by the Police.

haha no windowless vans for me, luckily... I just grew up in one of the border towns you hear so much about on CNN these days.

I've had stuff stolen from me on several occasions. I've never been the victim of a violent crime. I've never had the opportunity to stop a crime in progress.

Our rental house was robbed when I was in college. My room mate and I had gone home for a week before classes started again and was burglarized by the local juvenile thugs. They took stereo equipment, CD's, money, condoms, blank checks and my room mates Bowie Knife.

They took $150 Pioneer speakers and left $400 Infinity speakers, the Pioneers where bigger. They took all of the silver change out of one room mates jar of money and left all the pennies. Another room mate's girlfriend had a bag of condoms and sponges in his room and they took the condoms and left the sponges.

Through our own investigation we found out who they were. We worked with the bank to follow up on the forged checks and I found a lot of my CD's sold at a local CD shop. There was a truant officer in there when the CD's where sold and afterwards he made a comment to the owner about them probably being stolen.

It turned out that 2 of the kids where already convicted of crimes and where in between sentencing and serving time in juvenile detention. By the time we tracked them down they were already serving for other crimes.

The cops and DA were WORTHLESS!!!! They did not prosecute the kids already serving time, they did not charge the CD shop owner for receiving stolen property. The only charge was for the kid who cashed a forged check and he wasn't even one of the kids that broke in.

BTW, this was in Morgantown, WV. The cops are more interested in writing underage drinking citations to WVU students, because they can pay the fines. Prosecuting real crimes is too much work.

Yes, I had a neighbor that smoked pot years ago. And once when I stayed at a Holiday Inn there was a woman selling sex for money.
I didn't have anything to do with either of them but I must have been a victim or their activities would not be illegal.

In 1998 I had a large caliber revolver placed to the back of my head and was robbed of $5.57. I was walking home from the Metro rail at about 0100, when I observed 2 yutes following me, knowing I was going to be robbed I turned up a residential driveway as if I lived in the house, but they were on me too fast. Stuck the gun to the back of my head and took the cash. They were nice enough fellas, very pleasant about the whole thing.

Like a lot of other people I've had my car stereo stolen a couple of times. The last time was quite a while ago, but I still fantasize about catching the little bastard in my car and repeatedly slamming his head in the door.

Some motherfucker stole my bicycle when I was ten years old. It rained on the very long way home.

When I got home I was punished for being AWOL.

Then I was punished for "losing" the bike.

I hope the fucker who took my bike died of complications from tetanus. There was some rust on the frame. I locked the bitch up solid, too. Who runs around with bolt cutters in broad daylight? Fuckers, that is who.

I have had plenty of stuff ripped off since. Been mugged. It all pales to the loss of my bike. MY FUCKING BIKE! AGGGGGGGHHHHH

Never a direct victim of a violent crime but I did suffer through the aftermath of one of the worst. I worked at a liquor store when I was 21 (25 now) and my co worker, the guy who trained me, and an all around great guy, was robbed at gunpoint and taken to the back and executed. We had two stores, I was at number one, he was at number two. Since the stores had the same name, I had cops running in my store until they figured out it was at the other. Good side to the story is, the guy was caught that night and soon tried and found guilty of capital murder, and sentenced to death. All of this was over a small sum of money and a handle of Crown Royal. Scary thing is that I went to high school with the guy who did it and he had actually been to my place(more of someone I knew rather than a friend I hung out with) within the previous year...... Goes to show you just never know about some people. I have carried a gun with me EVERY DAY since that incident.

It was barely 7 months when we migrated here in the US. I was minding my own business wiping down our family car. Five guys came one had a gun & robbed me at gunpoint. I gave them the $ 5 in my pocket all the while staring at the gun's barrel & thinking about my wife & children. They are not content with that. They decided to get more by forcefully leading me to our apartment.

I resisted this time. For some miraculous reason the guy with the gun tried to shoot me( I saw he brought it up to my mid torso) but it didn't fire. I don't know the make or model (I have very limited knowledge of firearms at that time) all I know is its a gun. The jackass pistol whipped me instead. Three stitches on the left side of the head at Chippeham Hospital ER. What elso to do but run? I banged the apartment door & to my wife's and kids' horror blood was covering half of my face and most of the front of my shirt. Dialed 911, after 4 or 6 mins Richmond police came. (BG are still lurking around the complex)

After all that eye opening, life changing, horror of reality, I decided never again!! Never me or my family will be victims!!!! Ever!!!!

... oh yeah, this event also made me follow the path of JMB's teaching. See avatar .

I woke up in the middle of the night with a man's hands around my throat. he was in my girlfriend's (now wife) apartment to rape her as she was living single at the time but by a chance of luck I fell asleep early and decided to spend the night.

I wrestled and fought him with my fists while my girlfriend watched and never made a sound.

once he figured out he wasn't gonna be doing any raping that night, he backed off and ran out the way he had come in - through the locked front door. the police believe he had a key.

and I also had some shit stolen from my car and my house but not so bad, considering...

Had a couple different cars broken into over the years, thats about it.
Link Posted: 3/26/2009 11:41:37 AM EDT
Yes

We had a building broken into and several thousand dollars worth of items stolen. Never recovered and perps were never caught.

Someone attempted to steal 2 four wheelers stored at my mothers house. All they managed to do was screw the wiring up by cutting it and trying to hot wire.

We had a motorcycle stolen from our garage. It was recovered 1.5 years later and the guy had to spend a little time in the slammer and make restitution which took about 4 years

I also prevented a theft by two 15 year olds. They had broken into a storage where I store supplies and were coming out when I greeted them with my wifes S&W .38 Lady Light
