    This was recorded by someone who thought this guy was acting strange. It took place in Hungary and if it shows one thing. Don't use your phone near the subway door.

    I'm always amazed at people who act like nothing can happen to them in public. any real new yorker knows better than to wave $500 around.

    Yep, you're right. NYC is full of scum of the earth animals and you all know it.

    Hungary isn't NYC. I would imagine the level of crime there isn't anywhere to close to what takes place here. You just can't take out your phone or tablet using mass transit. There are just too many opportunistic thieves who know you are powerless to prevent getting jacked up on the subway.

    Why do people insist on taking video incorrectly.
    It's supposed to be done in LANDSCAPE NOT Portrait mode!!!

    Would have been funny if he snatched the phone of the guy taking the video. but we would have never seen it.

    Plus how do these people have $$$ in Hungary. I would think they are using prepaid Nokias.

    That's the problem with your fucked up city and it's liberal government. Let me remind you all what happens if you steal shit in real America:

    [video=youtube;RPuM_XAo2BE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPuM_XAo2BE[/video]

    YOUR government there in NYC does not allow you protect yourself or your property. But, its your own fault! You choose to live there. You vote these pussy liberals like Bloomberg in so fuck ya!

    You mess with the bull you get the horn. PUN INTENDED.

    Well the guy recording was probably doing it in secret so I would think if he tilted the phone sideways the purp would notice.

    we're allowed to protect our property. we just don't always see the need to do that the way you are talking about because theft of property does not justify killing. would you rather someone had killed you?

    nobody would fault me for removing someone who broke into my home and threatened anything living here. unlike some, i have not committed a felony so i can legally buy and own a gun (I can't carry one because i don't see the need to). of course i might not bother with a gun; a blunt object can be more appropriate and probably wouldn't even make the news in the case of a defense of home and family incident. to protect property i have insurance which is much cleaner to deal with.

    I've spent time in Budapest. Great city and not much violent crime, but there's no shortage of pickpockets and thieves. The general rule was to watch your shit if a light brown-skinned person was lurking nearby.

    You completely ignored the point of my post. You say you don't see the need to protect yourself, yet you can't get on a public subway and use your fucking cell phone in fear that you'll get your ass kicked and it will be stolen.

    You may not bother with a gun because its not necessary??? Yet, the asshole that's robbing you has one....

    The truth is in NYC you're not allowed to protect yourself OR your property. Have you tried getting a permit??? Much less a CCW permit??? I have news for you, unless you're Howard Stern, you're not getting one. So I'll say it as I've said before, you liberals keep your utopia bullshit, gun laws, and criminals up there. Keep that anti-American communist Bloomberg within the confines of your shit pile crime ridden city and I promise I'll never mention this again.

    Someone gets a cell phone stolen in Hungary, big whoop. The guy killing the robbers in Texas...Awesome. I remember reading about it. Those who think that killing someone for breaking and entering and "only" stealing as being a total over reaction and should be prosecuted are fucking idiots. People work long and hard to get what they have and depending on what is being stolen could be the difference between life and death for the victim. Thieves should be dealt with severely. Especially those who break into a private residence to steal. The interesting thing about killing a home invader, always, and I mean always results in a drop in home invasion crime in that area. Praise the second amendment.

    News Flash: It's no longer 1975 in NYC. It is fairly safe unless you do something stupid.

    Exactly. 9 out of 10 people on the subways are looking at their device of choice and nothing happens.
