    All right guys, I'm going try to get straight to the point.

    Today I decided to go visit a cousin of mine at work. Once I got there she was actually done with her shift so we decided to take the tram into the city to have a beer. While waiting for the tram I feel her tugging on my arm saying "help her help her..." so I turn around not knowing wtf is going on and I see this guy trying to steal this ladies purse. He was like 3 times bigger than her but he wasn't able to pull the purse away. Still gathering my thoughts, not knowing what to do I run up to them and put my hands on the purse. I said "What the fuck are you doing?" he tells me to"fuck off".

    All these people looking at me, I didn't know how I should act so jabbed him and took him to the ground. He dropped the purse, while spazzing on the ground.. I took the purse and gave it to the lady who said "thank you" and got on the bus(Tram/bus stop in my country) which was about to leave but backed up realizing what was going on. So the lady left and while this guy was still on the ground I walked up to him and wanted to kick his head in(adrenaline took control of me) but something inside of me said "don't do it unless you want to face the consequences" so I let him get up and walk away. I wanted to hurt this guy to teach him a f**king lesson but since I have a clean record I decided that it wouldn't be a good idea since I live in a small city and he'd be able to report me for breaking his teeth in lol.

    After the situation I regret not doing anything to him... Sometimes things happen so fast that you'd wish to change or do after the situation is over. What would you have done? I think I have done a good thing today because there were so many people around me that didn't do shit help.. Once I took him to the ground some guy came up and said "you better just lay ther" But on the other hand I wish I would have done more damage to him. After dealing with scammers on the internet I treat thieves the same way lol

    Congratulations on being a real man. Respect dude :) . Kicking him while he's laying isn't a good idea but you could have beaten him up a bit after he stood up and you generally wouldn't have gotten in trouble for that. These ... need a lesson to think twice before trying anything similar next time.

    Should have had your cousin take a picture of you doing this so when your girlfriend gets back you can be
    like "Oh yeah....thats right!" and enjoy!

    You did the right thing and stopped at the right time.

    Kicking his head in afterwards would have been out of anger and out of control and you would have regretted it afterwards.

    Plus, then you are no better than him and could have ended up paying a heft price for it.

    Haha actually my girlfriend took over my cousins shift so they will probably talk about it tomorrow ;) Apparently she already called her so I'm sure I'm going to get some for being a hero j/k lol

    Yeah I guess I've done the right thing. I don't understand this guy.. How could you try to steal someones purse in broad day light and not be able to steal it lol.

    Swap out the jab for a cross or hook? You did the right thing. Stomping him out would just cause more trouble. You helped a lady and looked like a stud while doing it. I know the adrenaline rush though. Good job on keeping your cool

    you did it right - "you exercised the necessary action to stop a threatened action" Anything more is liability city. Thanks for helping out a fellow human being.

    You did the right thing letting him go. Yes it would have been superb to give this dirtbag a lesson but karma always comes back around, and you did enough good by saving this woman's belongings. Honestly, if you wanted to go further you could have detained him and awaited for the proper authority but imo great job!! Keep it up!
