God, that makes me wince just thinking about it. Must have hurt like hell. What kind of fucking lunatic wants an iPad that bad anyway? As the unfortunate victim made clear, it'll be useless and obsolete in a few years, or even a few months, knowing Apple's usual business policy.
Dicks. I hope they lose a couple of their own digits in a freak accident involving the iPad and a heavy duty vice.
For those of you saying "I would have fought back better." No matter how cool you think you are nor how trained you actually are, unless you expect to be attacked like that at all times (which there may be some of you reading); caught off guard, an iPad and partial finger says your response is the same as my fat ass':
*tug* What the fuck? *looks back* Jesus Christ! *resists* *finger sripped* AAAAAAAAAAAAHHH! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!! MY FINGER!!!! JESUS CHRIST!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHH! AHHHHHHHHH! AAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!! FUUUUUUUUUCK!!! AHHHHHHHHHH!!! SON OF A *****!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!! AAAAAAAAAHHH!!!! FUCKING FUCK FUCK FUCK!!!!! AHHHHHHH!!! SHIT SHIT SON OF A ***** SHIT AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
Now then, as for the thief, I am 100% certain they didn't intend to injure this guy. I am 100% certain they are a douchebag, though. Just for forceably stealing anything.
They probably don't know or care that they are a giant douchebag. It probably wasn't about the shiny tech, but the shiny monies from the tech. They probably don't care that he lost a part of his finger either.
Hopefully they can track the iPad and thief to bring some justice for this guy.
