One Armed Bandit

  • Authorities say a 17-year-old had his arm torn off after a man he was allegedly trying to steal sneakers from hit him with a sport utility vehicle, pinning him against a fence in Brooklyn.

    WNBC-TV says it happened Friday afternoon in the Canarsie neighborhood after the boy arranged to meet a 39-year-old man to purchase a pair of Air Jordan sneakers.

    Authorities say that once the teenager was inside the man's car, the boy pulled out a gun, took the shoes and walked off.

    Surveillance video shows the SUV speeding up behind the teen and running him down.

    Investigators say the teenager was being treated at a hospital.

    Police say charges were pending against the driver Friday.
Charges pending? How about a medal? Or a thank you letter. It's not like he killed the thief. And he was armed....well, one-armed now.

If you are ever involved in investigating a similar case, please be very careful, and do not make any mistakes that could cause the charges to be thrown out. It would be a shame if you forgot to Mirandize or Illegally Searched the suspect and his possessions. Yeah, a real pity.

I would hate to see this guy walk. /sarc

I hope they don't charge the driver for merely "disarming" him.

If he gets caught the same way again, he may become the "unarmed bandit."

The details have changed a little from when I read this last night in the NY Post (via Drudge Link), which still has more information than the Trib article, like names and what all occurred; Philippe Pierre, 39, and the Obama son, 17 yo Zachary Sam.

But the 'Victim', Philippe Pierre, is now being charged with attempted murder. That's fricken bogus, hope he gets a good jury. Oh well, at least the young thief is getting charged too; Robbery and Criminal Possession Of A Weapon. (but shouldn't that be: Unarmed Robbery)

Gee, I wonder if little Zachary bought the gun at a Gun Show or over the Internet? (Damn Loopholes! (LOL)) Or maybe the little rascal went to Indiana or Virginia where they don't have any firearm laws, according to libtards, anyway (rotfl).

btw, the kid got a new nickname for his troubles -- The One Armed Bandit

It's a story of hood rat -vs- hood rat. Anyone who "sells shoes on Craig's list" to "help support his family" (insert cough) should be read as " selling lifted goods" ..... Next the "buyer" who happens to gave a gun to get what he wants and lift the shoes off the "seller". If the survives he'll continue the thug life with one arm and a permanent disability check courtesy of the tax payers. Teenage 1 arm thug will have a low life attorney at his bedside suggesting suing the drivers car insurance ( if he has insurance) for hundreds of thousands. Insurance costs rise for the law abiding due to these life-long idiots.
Looking forward to seeing the 8th grade graduation pic of both hood rats....everyone "turning their life around".....

I heard the arm was found in the car with the gun... See the report on Shaved's site - sounds like the shithead had the gun in the car, guy floored it, dragged shithead, arm ripped off, guy freeked out and crashed into a pole, shithead ran off sans arm and tried to get on a bus, then off a bus, etc...

WTH... Still, Driver doesn't deserve to be charged - why blame the real vic?

If he reoffends a few more times and is as successful as he was here, he'll earn a new nickname: Doorstop!

I think it's hilarious. Maybe an early sign of justice under sharia law? You steal and your arm gets ripped off?

This looks like a lock for a workers' comp claim. Injured on the job, unable to continue in chosen profession. Can't even load his own gun any longer and may required a trained service animal for assistance. Can't run, shoot and hold his pants up simultaneously. Gives him the money!!!

I believe, that anyone who breaks the law should face the wrath of it The driver should be more experienced and call the police. The driver is not the only one in this country that has ever been rob, he should have walked away.
