He's lucky he didn't get street justice. My friends wouldn't have bothered calling the cops.

Have you guys read the comments on the Dinnan case? Not that I disagree with your thinking but what if you just wanted to hurt him and then he dies. Even if this thief will be on the streets to steal again, it's not worth ruining your life or your friend's lives.
