Cache maggot arrested. in General geocaching topics Posted April 18, 2010 Now let's see what your definition of "retribution" is? If you are aghast with an "OMG!" you must have some pretty severe thoughts of what retribution would be. If you can not see how this and other comments, either standing by themselves or in a group, are not encouraging retribution, no definition or amount of logic will help you. If for no other reason than you have already open yourself up to at least closer scrutiny if something unfortunate does happen, I would stop posting were I you. So my question goes unanswered. OK. Tell me this. Have you ever watched a criminal get apprehended? Did you do anything? I have seen it. I watched. I had no love for the criminal. I didn't even know, for sure, that a crime had been committed. But I watched. Once, I did get involved and for my trouble I was treated to a down-the-barrel look at a loaded hunting rifle about 10 feet or less from me. I, now, prefer to watch when there is no stake in it for me. Human beings are curious creatures. They are quick to fault others but rarely examine themselves. A person might become outraged and speak of how they would do something in a certain situation, the reality is that when placed in that situation they behave completely different. I am honest with myself and others. In that regard, if neighbor A steals from neighbor B I would sit back and watch if neighbor B punched neighbor A in the face. Would I encourage that confrontation? No. If the confrontation happened, would I watch? Certainly. I KNOW there are people reading this who feel the same way but I'm almost certain that they don't want to admit it, some won't admit it to themselves and others just don't want to admit it publicly. Humans are interesting sometimes. I never feel bad for what happens to criminals.Most get what they deserve either by the law or the person they wronged while commiting the crime. The only thing that sometimes bothers me is all the attention that the criminal gets.The people who feel sorry for the criminal if he is going to get executed or gets years behind bars.The victim and their family get pushed to the side and their feelings are seldom heard.The media is good at this type of thing. If my neighbor was being robbed and he was fighting back I can honestly say I would probably be fighting too.And if the robber got banged up in the process,thats just the price he pays for his actions. I once tried to break up a fight at a bar where a husband and wife had a few too many and were getting physical.I pulled the guy off his wife and guess what I got for my troubles?An ashtray off the back of my head.And who did it?The wife.Then they both were on ME...I learned quick to stay out of domestic fights and just call the cops.
