Thumbs down Cue stolen at pool room - culprit found - what would you do? - 11-05-2018, 02:10 PM

Last week at my local pool room a Huebler cue was stolen and with security camera assistance they were able to see the young man, who by the way, appeared to be in his early to mid-20s, picking up the cue and slipping it under his jacket then leaving.

Because this thief was with a friend who paid with a credit card the police were able to track him down they contacted him and went and retrieved the stolen cue.

My friend whose cue it was decided not to press charges saying the guy was a young knucklehead and he is just happy to get his cue back.

I'm curious in a situation like this what my fellow AZ members would have done.

Have him arrested or cut him a break?

best,
brian kc

Two choices, press charges or street justice. How the hell will the boy learn if one of these two are aren't done?

Between Arrested and Break I would lean Break but he would be doing
something like community service, digging gum out from under tables or something.
Not just scott free.

never break the law
depeding on the kids age
perhaps meet with his parents and then contact the police if you are not satisfied

should his parents talk about getting serious with him
perhaps he should be required to work it off say 20 hours,sweeping floors,cleaning toilets

and bar him from the pool room

but never break the law

Keep the cue and get the hammer or give the cue back and get the hammer if you ever show your face here again.

Would I cut him a break?

No but if they cut thieves hands off or at least broke them this stuff would rarely happen.

Please consider not pushing this street justice stuff... If you hurt someone in a premeditated assault you're doing a good chunk of time.

Id probably do nothing.
...and hell probably bar himself....how can he show his face?

On the other hand, if the Huebler had an original shaft with the nylon insert...
....I might engage a professional hitman.

He should be banished to the phantom zone. Superman comics, long time ago. But it would be appropriate.

All the best,

Just to narrow your list.

At the very least, he's banned from the room. And his friends too.

At a minimum, and with the room owner's concurrence, he should be banned from the room for a year or three.

No charges, but he has to do some sort of community service, maybe at the pool hall or pick up trash around it for a few weekends.
