Each time I’m the sufferer of a property crime, the very first thing I wish to do is whip somebody’s ass. If the police referred to as me proper now and instructed me they recovered my model new MacBook Professional that somebody in Southwest Airways’ baggage division stole from my bag a 12 months in the past, and gave me the selection between punching the thief within the mouth or getting my laptop computer again, I’d assume lengthy and laborious. (Don’t you dare say “that’s what she mentioned.”)
In accordance with a report by Clarion-Ledger, Jackson, Mississippi’s former mayor Tony Yarber just lately lived out my knuckle sandwich-delivering fantasy. A video of Yarber paddling a would-be thief is making the rounds on the web, proving as soon as and for all that the reply to all of the ills of the world may very well be solved with “Deez arms.”
Yarber was dwelling when his spouse observed two males hanging outdoors their household dwelling in a working automobile. When Yarber went outdoors, he noticed 22-year-old Juwan Bibbs attempting to interrupt into his automobile. Yarber kicked the automobile door closed and the would-be thief bolted to a hiding place close to Yarber’s storage.
When the ex-principal caught up with Bibbs, he dragged the intruder on into the storage as one in every of Yarber’s sons grabbed the digicam and started recording. Yarber instructed the Clarion-Ledger that Bibbs pleaded with the house owner to not kill him for working into Yarber’s home. Juwan mentioned he had a 2-month previous son, however Yarber wasn’t attempting to listen to that, reminding Bibbs that Yarber’s children have been additionally in the home.
Fortunately, as a member of Alpha Phi Alpha, Yarber had a paddle laying round in his storage. Yarber sat on prime of the Bibbs and proceeded to … umm—please don’t choose me for utilizing this cliche, however it’s really the right simile on this occasion:
Yarber whipped that dude like he stole one thing.
Yarber mentioned the Bibbs reminded him of somebody who attended his church, so he delivered a butt-whipping harking back to what my mama used to do (To not me, in fact. I used to be an wonderful son)—with the simultaneous speaking and every little thing:
“If you break in folks’s stuff, it’s as a result of any individual ain’t whooped your tail,” he mentioned as he hand-delivered his connoisseur spanking. Bibbs may be heard apologizing, however not like me, he didn’t inform Yarber “I ain’t gonna do it no extra.”
The police ultimately arrested the Bibbs and charged him with auto housebreaking and possession of marijuana. Police later found that when Yarber tried to apprehend Bibbs, he jostled Bibbs gun free, leaving it on the bottom close to the automobile. This is the reason you shouldn’t do this at dwelling.
However right here’s the query: Was Tony Yarber perpetuating violence? Ought to this be thought-about an act of vigilante justice? Was he taking the regulation into his personal arms.
Who cares? The one factor Yarber did unsuitable was that he didn’t make Bibbs clear that storage (It’s fairly nasty). However that is all about Yarber catching a thief and a thief catching crucial life lesson of all:
