Default Steal a bike, get a beatdown

The beatdown was delivered by the bike's owner, Calvin McDougal of Lauderhill, according to a police report. The two men got into a fight when McDougal chased after Kirk to retrieve his $600 bicycle.

"I believe there was a little bit more than just a tackle," Broward County Judge John "Jay" Hurley said Thursday during Kirk's hearing in first appearance court. "Now, sir, you allegedly steal someone's bike and it looks like there was some street justice carried out."
"Listen, my son. Trust no one! You can count on no one but yourself. Improve your skills, son. Harden your body. Become a number one man. Do not ever let anyone beat you!" -- Gekitotsu! Satsujin ken

I see no problem with this. The guy's still alive, but got what he deserved.

Absolutely. The force used was entirely appropriate. No one died.

Good outcome, hopefully the bike owner doesn't get a civil suit to pay the thief's medical bills as I doubt he had any insurance.
