Mother of alleged Apple iPhone thief praises victim for capturing and restraining her son
0. phoneArena 20 Aug 2014, 05:19 posted on
Last Friday, 36 year-old Clara Vondrich was in the middle of a business call outside a coffee shop in Brooklyn, when a pair of young kids pushed her from behind, and knocking her to the ground. One of the pair ripped an Apple iPhone right out of her hands. Like many victims who have had their pride and joy forcefully removed from their grip, Vondrich chased after the pair despite wearing thick wedges and a sundress...

When it comes to our phones, we often are not logical. What would you do in the same scenario?

Some people often build a parental protective bond with their phones. They will nurture it in any way shape or form. Only letting those they completely trust hold it (if anyone at all). Alan you are most correct that we become illogical when it comes to our phones and it's because we put so much time, money, and effort into them that they become, though as silly as this may sound, a part of us.

Wouldn't go after mine if it got stolen, its encrypted so they aren't getting anything off it and it has anti thief enabled. If that fails I just get a new one through carriers insurance.

I would do the same thing and then haul his thug-@$$ directly to jail myself. Good thing someone was recording this, otherwise, someone else would be crying racism.

By thug, you must mean Black. You're right though. It is racism...by you.

That's all he's good for bro, an underhanded racist remark. He's someone I simply ignore now. Not even worth the time. +1

Alan it's one of those spur of the moment type things. I myself am extremely capable, my size, stamina, muscularity, and strength would allow me to easily get it back. Like I said earlier, two unarmed kids I'm going for, two armed adults, just got a themselves an iPhone. It depends, and her being a woman deserves kudos for going after, and catching that kid. 13 year old boys can be strong, luckily for her he was pudgy and outta shape. 6 months juvenile hall.

"pudgy and outta shape"?? Stop putting yourself down!

Alan, I wonder how often this occurs in the states. Any stats bro?
35. PAPINYC (banned) (Posts: 2315; Member since: 30 Jul 2011)
Here are the stats', bro':
Every damn day here in New York, and then they get released to their parents who then let them out again to run around and commit more crimes.

The bottom picture just don't look right. Is it the shirt? Or maybe the almost similar hand positions? Or the fact that no one really looks upset?

It's about our belongings. Instead of phone if will be watch or wallet? At that moment we are blackouts and we are running be instincts of preservation.

That's not even funny and what is the point of making such a stupid comment?
14. darkkjedii (Posts: 21686; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Well said mike, my son has a 3.8 GPA, and is headed to Washington ST U on a full basketball scholarship after his senior year. Luckily, my son isn't this type of kid.
31. MikeG77 (Posts: 402; Member since: 24 Nov 2008)
I know you wouldn't tolerate this kind of behavior from your son. Glad to hear your son is applying himself academically and even better that he got a scholarship which is not an easy thing to do.

Very lucky father bro. He's never given us any problems, outside of the typical messy room, and not taking the garbage out on time. I'm waiting on neurobiologist's reply though.
39. EclipseGSX (Posts: 1718; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)
Because there is 0 chance he is full of s**te... I really hope it's true though. These kids are our future.
26. JC557 (Posts: 1540; Member since: 07 Dec 2011)
Dude, that's seriously messed up. Unless that's a private joke between the both of you (which I doubt after seeing DJ's post)
30. darkkjedii (Posts: 21686; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Nahhh, it's not a joke. He's already called me quite a few racist names in other posts, so this didn't shock me. His angle is quite obvious. I think he's pissed though, cuz he didn't get the rise outta me he was hoping for :D

Father just like son. Both in the same boat?
44. darkkjedii (Posts: 21686; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Awww you want some attention bad huh. Don't worry someone will give you a green thumb pretty soon. Congrats on your 3rd post.

Is it entirely about the phone? Shoving someone to the ground risks inflicting an injury, up to and including a concussion. Just letting them get away with the whole thing encourages more of this behavior in the future, and tells others they can do it too. Kudos to the victim, though I'd rather she'd been able to tag him with something he couldn't remove and could be tracked.
15. darkkjedii (Posts: 21686; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
She definitely took a chance with her life. If it were kids bearing no arms, I'd go after em. Adults are more likely to have weaponry, so I'd definitely think twice about it. Anyway lock his butt up, let him learn a lesson, and kudos to the victim.
