 Unfortunately no. The lazy cop let him go because he able to proofed he’s working there. But he doesn’t have the key or no permission to get inside after the business closed. For my stand point he still consider a burglar. @therealtylerdurden:

 I gave you props for trying to do the right thing. But honestly the cops showed up and saw, witnessed in person 2 people fighting. Assault taking place. That’s what they saw. That’s what they needed to put in their report. Your reaction to put a stop to the burglar was emotional and knee jerk. From the cop’s viewpoint one guy provides proof of employment, the other guy was clearly guilty of accosting and assaulting the other. According to his own words. Vigilantism basically. Just call the cops and record what’s happening next time. Then there’s no doubt as to the guilty party. I’ve no doubt that the guy was trying to break in. But we have due process here. Otherwise all we have is a he said she said world where everyone just takes the law into their own hands. In short the Wild West.
  • 14 4
 @buildabike: honestly it's sounds like you assaulted a person you had mistaken for a burglar and where lucky the cops used there discretion and didn't arrest you because you had good intentions. Its not what you know it's what you can prove.

 @jrocksdh: @jrocksdh: I guess in the U.S. civilians are responsible for their own law enforcement. Even when it has nothing to do with you and the crime hasnt even happened yet, dont call the police and wait for the professionals, jump in, get involved. Worked well for George Zimmerman. Keep at it.

 I prefer to give! Getting a present is great, but the feeling I get when I see the happiness on another persons face from the present they receive is all I need to feel good about the day.

SO I built my nephews the same ramp that Seth built in that video. I got my moms a gopro for her car. Bought my older brother a Firestick, and my younger brother got a Xbox type pad for the controller; and got my sister and her daughter scarves, gloves and tickets to the Portland Art Museum. I had to buy for myself, so I bought a full Wolftooth components compliment, SLX cranks and frame protection stickers. And, and, we got snow on Christmas!

 After I told everyone nothing repeatedly and told them to not spend a dime I got:
- garmin fenix 5x
- Two cooler bags
- a few truck parts
- an evil insurgent frame
- way too many gift cards
- lots of nice things for around the house.
While things are nice, the fact that I was able to spend the time with my loved ones was all that mattered.
