Would you stop a thief?

Watch this interesting experiment: http://wimp.com/stopthief/

How do you think you would react?

It depends. If the thief is stronger than i am in appearance, huh, i will have no option than to 'Bid Him farewell on his journey'

I always do my best to prevent myself from thief.
I think prevention is always on first place.

Have you watched the video? It is well explained in there.

I was amazed with those who helped. Especially the guy who ran out just to get the i pod. And if I were in that position. I will also ask the thief or just call somebody who can do it for me.

As long as I can, I will stop the thief.

Maybe I will call a police or better talk to him if I were related on that person.

I agree - it depends on the size of the thief.

you can't.

Size doesn't matter in fights. He may not be a big one but have gun or some other weapon. Or he may know martial art etc. So don't fight if you don't have any training to do so.

Instead of it, watch him carefully and then call police and tell them about that thief.

I think I would estimate the situation first and if isn't a big risk for me, then I'll do my best to catch him

That was a pretty nice analysis, maybe I could ask my friends to be my accomplice and do the same thing and see if men helped me because of my beauty or because generally, stealing is bad.

If I was there, I would definitely interrogate the thief and if proven guilty, boom!
Spin slap!

I would love to be knocked down by Billy, though.

I hate thieves. Definitely, I will do something to stop the thief from escaping. As long as he has no deadly weapons with him... Though I'm still pondering if I will stop the thief is he steal something from the one I envy..... Oh, yes.. I will.

Yeah, it was a great analysis. People have their own different reactions to a given instances. So I would say, do good to other people and they will be good unto you too. Cheers!

If the thief is alone, I will definitely stop him. But if the thief is let's say a bunch of muscle guys that always go to the gym and wears a fit shirt, then I'd probably think of the situation first... What if the thief has a gun or a knife? Then that's a difference scenario over there and then I should call someone for help..

But all in all, yes I will stop the thief..
