Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

The thief (pictured below) answers: "All right. I don't know what you want me to say."

The victim wants the thief to apologize, but all he says is: "I bought this bike off of Craigslist, I live in Seattle."

The thief turns away and accidentally runs towards the victim's friend who is recording the incident on video. The victim's friend says: "You're under citizen's arrest, stop right now!"

Finally, the Seattle Police arrive and arrest the thief, 45 minutes after they were called by the victim. (WARNING: Adult Language.)
