In Denver, a man bought an iPad for a friend at the Apple Store in Cherry Creek Mall, but soon after had it stolen by thieves, who ripped the flesh off his finger while taking it.

The victim, Bill Jordan, told local media he had the cords of the bag tied around his hand, and when one of the thieves yanked it, he couldn’t let go, and it literally tore the flesh off his finger, leaving nothing but bone.

"I never hear it coming, I never see it coming," he told Denver’s FOX31. "I just remember this kid pulling and pulling and pulling and it got caught?took the flesh right off, the tendons and everything. There was nothing but bone." A doctor told him they’d have to amputate the finger.


At this point the two thieves are still out there as police continue the search. Denver’s’ CBS4 has a quote from Jordan, telling the thieves, "I hope you understand what you’ve done to my life and my family’s life for a simple piece of apparatus that’ll be junk in a couple of years."

We know there is a great amount of iPad demand in the U.S. (they’ve postponed releasing it overseas for this reason), but this is ridiculous. Looking past the sick outcome of this crime, Jordan is absolutely right as well. The first generation iPad won’t be so in demand two years from now.

    My just decision in this case:

    When he is caught, recover the iPad + any damages to it + damages to the victim. Then wrap a piano wire around his pinky and yank until 2/3s of it is gone.

    That will allow the victim to have what is rightfully his, and restitution for what was done to him. And the thief will remember the crime every day when he looks at HIS lost pinky.

    These thieves need to be hung by their pinkies, then hung by their necks.

    Interesting that there has been no release of the criminals’ description and/or photo/video?
