Angry Stolen Vulcan (from Yahoo group)

Got this from the Yahoo group.....

Quote:
Everyone please be on the look out for a stolen 1985 vn700 with a 1989 750
motor on it. The engine has shift fork issues. It was stolen out of my storage
unit this past weekend.

Please be especially aware of any ebay parts being sold by someone in the 4
states area around joplin. Missouri. I appreciate all the help in advance/

Thanks,

Stan Slifer
(Wanderer)

The bike has a black tank and memphis slims blue shade that I got from Ed
Howdershelt (auwg) The color for the fenders is red on red. Also the final
drive has been painted a chrome color and the ears have been repainted ...the
inlay is a gloss black.

imo bike thieves should be treated as horse thieves used to be treated.

no no... four bikes, four directions, chain tied to each leg and each arm.
bigger impression, slower death, more blood.

Also keep an eye out in the S.E. Kansas, N.E. Oklahoma and maybe even the N.W. Alabama areas.

Hmmmm...Hang `em, then drawn and quartered. We`re only missing burning at the stake.

In my opinion when thieves or vandals are caught, the punishment should be repaying the victim for the full value of the stolen or damaged items. If they are not gainfully employed, put them to work in a work camp at minimum wage, doing something that is of value to the community. Give half their wages to the victim until the debt is paid. House and feed the prisoners like Sheriff Joe Arpio (spelling?) of Arizona does. They have to work, and get paid a little. They pay room and board. They sleep in army tents, (if its good enough for our soldiers, it`s good enough for them). They get sandwiches, not steak and potatoes. No coffee provided. No smoking. No color TV. I forget what else. Sheriff Joe says" if you don`t like the service DON`T COME BACK!!"

That`s the way to cut down on crime in the country. Make the criminal pay for his crime, not just put in time. Make it immediately uncomfortable enough that he does want to go back in!!!
