Robber steals iPad, takes part of man's finger with it

Robber steals iPad, takes part of man's finger with it Police in Denver have released a surveillance video showing a thief stealing an iPad from a man leaving the mall, at the same time ripping off part of his left pinky finger.
The victim, Bill Jordan, was buying the tablet device at the Cherry Creek Mall for a co-worker.

"I kind of wrapped it around my fingers so I didn't drop it on the way out. It was a heavy duty bag they put it in, and had real thick cords," says Jordan, via KDVR.

As Jordan left the store, the attacker followed him, finally going for the theft when Jordan reached the door to leave the mall.

"The next thing I know, I'm spun around. I see this kid, his rear end almost on the ground, and he's pulling it out of my hand. I just remember seeing this kid pulling and pulling and pulling till it got caught. Took the flesh right off and the tendons and everything. There was nothing but bone,"
says the victim.

Jordan had to have his left pinky amputated after the incident.

Here is the surveillance video picture of the attacker:

SCUM OF THE EARTH, yeah what the other person said this thief needs to be murdered..removed from population..

I can envision myself stealing lots of things and living with it (not that I ever would), but I seriously don't think I could go on living if I was the guy who ripped off some dude's finger because I wanted an iPad. Especially if they had a picture of me doing it circulating on the news.

If the guy has a brain, he'll either off himself or turn himself in due to sheer embarrassment and shame. If not, he'll probably be caught a few blocks away trying to figure out how to turn on the iPad.

Anyone watch the clip? It was great, the guy who lost his finger kept calling it a "Toy" and saying he would not want one, it was just a corporate gift that his boss asked him to pickup.

I hope the robber looses his whole hand in his next robbery.

Indeed. All this for an electronic device. Can't believe it took his flesh right off, really shows there are just completely mindless zombie Apple addicts out there. Hope Mr. Jordan gets some compensation for this crap, poor guy.

822.4.2010 3:00

what do you mean with "some compensation".....an iFinger from Crapple, maybe ?

You think he actually wanted an iPad? He sold it for crack. this will hold him over until the next government check.

I just hate ppl like these whose first thought is "racist". You sir are no better than a racist. Instead of shouting ni***r you shout racist... i mean that dude lost his fingers because some dumb a-hole stole a damn ipad and you start calling everyone who hates this guy a racist just because this a-hole was black? So we aren't allowed to hate this guy because he is black?

I feel sorry for the thief.. he got 2 useless things for the price of one.. actually.. half a finger could be useful.. hmmmmm

I hate everybody equally.. no prejudice here.... live with it. What gets me in our so called "enlightened" word that the first thing reported is the colour of a criminals skin.. odd that seeing as nobody is supposed to be any other than equal.. what difference does it make?

lots of racists here today..

1822.4.2010 19:57

All for an iPad? Why bother? Now if it was for a Zune HD, NOW YOU'RE TALKIN...

another white nazi racist.. what a shock .. cuts both ways ;)

2223.4.2010 7:16

I just saw the video. I am amazed at how cool the guy is even though he lost his finger. he's so calm and collected. The boy who stole it definitely wouldn't have done it purposefully (Ripping his finger) but still.

What are you talking about? The guy who violated that poor guy was black. As are the majority of American criminals per capita. This is a fact. Why don't you take your politically correct crap somewhere else.

"Is that 3 thousand dollar bounty on the shark in cash or check?"

"We can do it the easy way...Or we can do it the REAL easy way."

True, but also look at some of the reasons for this fact.

Look at the conditions a lot of them grow up in not only that but the education received comp. If they were to live in white suburbia where everything is sunshine and roses I'm pretty sure they would turn out completely different. Now, this doesn't justify them doing wrong but the likelihood of them doing it increases. Not everything is so black and white as you make it seem my friend.

I see FP has some balls.. it's not PC crap to give everybody an equal chance in life.. I guess FP has no idea what it is like to be greeted with open hate and discrimination every single day just for being himself.. I suggest a few months in the army in Afghanistan to teach these "white supremacists" a lesson in humility and what it is like to be a hated minority.

It is a human right to choose how to act.. this guy decided to steal something using force.. his colour doesn't matter at all.. IF he was white it would not have even been mentioned.. oh yeah.. can you see the prejudice yet?? When by prejudice a whole section of society are criminalised by assumption, and grow up under the prejudice associated with that assumption very often they see no alternative.. Deny a man the chance of a decent job because "all blacks are criminals" and what option do you really give them? Is Obama a criminal? .. he's under 60 and black.. so by your words that makes him a lowlife criminal.. because all ni****s are criminals in your world.. yeah.. I can and do use that word.. I may be one.. I may be a gun toting woman hating drug dealing gangster for all you know.. or I might just be a human rights lawyer trying to stamp out people like FP with education (some hope.. nazis all across the usa.. crap.. to get a black president elected they had to stand him up against the only candidate lower in the pecking order.. a woman) In real life I work for Oxfam.. making a difference in this world for anybody who is deprived by situation, regardless of race, colour or religion

This is a European site.. and a lot of the comments on this thread are criminal offences under European laws.. guess I should go and report it to the appropriate authorities.. I don't see racism from the European and Asian posters.. only the yanks feel they have the right to hate and advocate murder based on colour of skin. yeehaw.. get the lynch mob.. some goddam black been stealin again (forget the bankers.. white millionaires every one.. who have stolen BILLIONS from each and every one of us why don't you) Nah.. some bloke gets his apple junk thing stolen (serves him right for flashing a "desirable" item in public.. against ALL public safety advice no doubt) by somebody and it's world wide news.. pathetic.. just pathetic

Woah woah, hold that there bro/sis. I'm not white, let alone a white supremacist. I agreed that yes, most minorities are the ones in jail, that's it. I do not need to see what it is like to be in Afghanistan and be taught a lesson about being discriminated everyday. Trust me, I know it and live it. Not as open as it was before but through the smirks in peoples faces. Sorry if I came off as a "white supremacist", not the best at articulating on the internet lol. I do agree with most of the things you said and if you read my response again it was not directed at you but rather the other guy.

First a comment about the article:

It makes me kind of sick to think about how hard that kid must have been pulling to get a finger torn off. I guess it was too much of a shock for the older guy to grab with the other hand or stop resisting the force. I don't think the IPAD is worth going to jail, stealing, and especially harming someone for. I hope he gets caught at some point because this was probably not his first and only crime.
Which brings me to my second comment, I say that it is probably not his first crime because of his fearlessness and determination, but someone would probably consider it a comment based on race.
I am not of a single race and have never been comfortable identifying myself when asked. I think that it is a shame that labels are often applied to articles such as these. It is not uncommon for the title "black" teenager, or "black" male and so on to accompany the description. For a society supposedly against racial segregation it is difficult to recognize that when we are so often told whether we like it or not what an individual's race is. It is not only negatively racist people or organizations that do this either. Even proponents of unity will fall back to a labeling system, perhaps because of habit or because of a need to distinguish an individual. Such as celebrations in response to America's first "black" president. The label was applied to Mr. Obama equally from those that approved as those that did not. Continued emphasis on recognizing race as a distinguishing characteristic will forever stall the progress toward unity and equality, this goes for positive and negative connotations.

The kid in this article is a criminal, and perhaps an insensitive human being, we do not know how he felt after learning he removed a mans finger, but if I was stealing something and discovered blood and flesh I would probably have dropped the item there and ran to separate myself from the gore.

I am not Black or White either and I been scam before by my own people...OK! and that do not make me feel any better or worse either.

This Ignorant person and many others like him should be start working for living like everybody else. Now if they do not want to work and want to live large....they should be try to steal from the super rich and see how far they can go..... Not from regular people who are living every day Check by check and that some day we buy little things to hardly enjoy life.

Now I just sick an tired to see this kind of Scum Basters on every day News take advantage from weak, kids or old People like they are a "Big Shot" M.F's.
Thanks God we star have Video Tech almost everywhere and finally we start to know who are the real Scums Criminals. Police Officers star to have a "Head Video Cam" too and I really like that !

Now; because some people do not have an education or maybe are not rich do not give them the right to be a Scum Baster as an only option on life.....right?

On the another hand Suburbia is not all shinny.....they also have Low life people moving in (and I talking about some of those who are making "some millions" fast; playing sports, new rap singers or those New Corp. CEO's Scumers or wherever) They are not old Money People and they do not have any Class either.

So Fast Cash do not give you any class or make anybody better.

to bad he didn't get a ring with the finger. Just kidding. I am considered white, my wife is afro-american and all people regardless of color or ethnic origin have to realize there's scum from all walks of life. Most white collar criminals are white(even the government ones). There's just to much crap going on in the world. Just think what it would be like if we all could carry weapons legally. As far as more blacks in jail than whites, the cops have more fun chasing and beating a black man more than a white man. If all people of all colrs were treated the same, what a wonderfull place this world would be to live in. Sorry to say it will never happen.

I hadn't even noticed...I just saw some guy stealing a bag from some other guy...who cares what color his skin was? BTW...would you have posted the same racist crap if it was a white guy stealing from a black guy? What if it was a woman stealing from a man? Would that send you off on some kind of tangent?

If a person is willing to steal something and rip someones finger off in the process he/she/it is probably a low life scum bucket regardless of whether they are white/black/asian/human/animal.if an animal bites someones finger off they usually get put down.

LOL - People arguing over colour? The guy is a sh*t for stealing something another person has worked hard for and for causing injury. Yes he should be beaten to a pulp. Lets just keep it at that. As for comparing him to an animal? thats kinda wrong! why? Animals are wild but not stupid, when they bite its for a darn good reason! This guy is the lowest of the low and to compare him to an animal is an insult to the animal kingdom.
