    Thief going for iPad rips off part of man's finger
    April 20, 2010

    DENVER ? A man lost part of his pinky finger when a thief snatched an iPad that was in a bag tied around the man's hand.

    Fifty-nine-year-old Bill Jordan said he had just purchased Apple's latest must-have item at a store at Denver's Cherry Creek Mall Thursday and was near the parking garage when a thief grabbed the bag.

    Jordan says the bag wouldn't come off of his hand and the thief yanked so hard he appeared to be sitting on the ground. The thief then jerked so hard that it stripped the skin on part of Jordan's pinky down to the bone. Doctors later amputated a portion of Jordan's finger.

    Jordan had purchased the tablet computer for a friend in Canada. Denver police were still searching for the suspect Tuesday.

    Well, atleast it wasn't his index finger or his thumb so he can still hold and smoke his joints on 4:20. Anyways, thats pretty fucking extreme just to get a ipad. I mean seriously, almost ripping a guys fucking finger off just to get it? Guess that was 1 desperate dude...

    A reason why you should not buy your children such products, they will show it everywhere (the main reason many people get apple stuff) and are likely to be robbed sooner or later.
    But also good to keep in mind that you should not wrap bags around single fingers, that shit can always happen.

    This brings a whole new meaning to 5 finger discount...

    But on a serious note I mean some people are nuts, instead of this guy flipping burgers for a week or 3 and then buying an ipad, he ended up ripping someone?s finger off just to get one, and now if caught will probably do 5 to 10 years in prison, it sure is a crazy world sometimes.
