A bike thief tries to get away with one of his robberies when he is surprised by a bunch of superheroes.
These guys are heroes, point got across and no one was seriously hurt.
This is obviously a fictional video. The camera angles they got were planned long before time and took too many people to shoot from that many angles. It’s a “don’t steal” message. They even have a second part where they kidnap him. Watch it.
you know, one .45 ACP costs alot less than all the paintball gear they used
You do know of something called disproportionate force, right? Just because a guy steals some bikes, you can’t riddle him with giant holes. Though, once he pulled the knife, you can do what you want.
only until, the knife?
I mean really?
shoot him (I assume it is a male) shoot him cause he is a thief! taking advantage of people.
and go to jail for shooting someone - smart!
If you look closer, they didn’t “riddle him with giant holes”. They shot him with a paintball gun. I think it’s more than fair.
That’s the point. They didn’t riddle him with holes. He’s talking about the guy that said a .45 is cheaper.
Learn to read. He was replying to the guy suggesting using a real gun.
Joaquin, he’s talking about using .45 ACP to punish a bike thief.
Which, in my opinion, is goddamn ridiculous.
Punishment is necessary, but not the risk of death. Ian, you’re a troll.
I think you took his comment out of context.
If you read closer, you can see he said “you canâ€™t riddle him with giant holes.”
You realized that poster was responding to the gentleman who suggested to instead buy a real gun. He knows they were paintball guns. And I agree, until the knife there is no point to take a life.
But it looks kind of fake - if it ist, it’s vigilante of the best kind
and it does look a little fake. but a cool fake, if it is.
Fake the criminal was wearing padding
Or winter clothing, your choice.
He has a point; it was snowing.
Vigilante justice is the best justice.
That was awesome revenge taken on an unsuspecting douche bag.
the first video they showed looked real, but the rest of it looked fake as hell. and the “theif”? totally acting.
Looks fake? But the fact that hits me is the sprayed hand print. Look it up, made for T.V movie the brother hood of justice. That was the call sign.
If it’s not fake the speed of the cops once they think guns are involved makes you think, if they where that quick when the thief stole the bike in the first place they wouldn’t need the “red hand.”
Still cool whether it’s fake or not I would do the exact same thing (except for the weird hand print and probably I wouldn’t post the video cause its like saying “hey I’m a vigilante arrest me.)
They are lucky the guy didn’t have a handgun.
In America, we use live ammo, and the thief is DIRT - Dead from Injuries Right There! Plus, if the thief survives, the small quantity of drugs in this 7 zone apex, guarantees 7 full FIVE year jail sentences, non-plea bargained by law!
This is totally fake.
Justice at its best.
As much as I think this is awesome, its really too bad that thief could sure sue those guys if he ever found out who they were. Thief or not what those guys did is assault with a fire arm weapon.
Paintball guns ARE NOT FIREARMS.
No firearms were used.
The police would be brought up on charges if they used that kind of ‘excessive force’ on a bike thief. The reality is, you must physically engage them with the minimal force necessary to effect an arrest. If the bad guy pulls out a weapon, all bets are off. In this situation, the aggressors never gave the guy a chance to give up, they just attacked. Well, they could be the ones facing charges, if this were real. As for bike thefts, these property losses are rarely prosecuted in San Francisco anyway so why even bother?
