PS3/PSP Thief Gets Nailed By A Woman

When the PlayStation 3 first launched back in late 2006, theft was an unfortunate problem for several months while the system was difficult to find. There were even a couple tragedies, but these days, availability is up and the motivation for such crimes has all but disappeared. Well, except where typical criminals are concerned and all they want to do is steal stuff.

One such individual should've done a bit more research on his chosen target, though. According to G4 and CNN, a thief broken into a house, stole a PlayStation 3, PSP, some cell phones and a bunch of video games, and then attempted to escape out a window. One problem with that- the woman who owns the house woke up, and she just so happened to be former professional boxer, Derdre Rodriguez. Her fighting career ended ten years ago, but she still stays in shape and decided to chase the thug down. She leaped a fence in pursuit, whacked him once with a heavy ice chipper, than forced his ass back to the house to wait for police. She even made him pick up the stolen items he had dropped during the chase!

You can watch the full video on CNN here, and have yourself a good chuckle. The guy deserved it, and it's even more awesome that a woman put him in his rightful place. Don't mess with a boxer, you dope!

Crime seriously doesn't pay, it hurts.

The Wii is more elusive that the PS3, yet how come people aren't breaking into houses to steal Wii's and DS's? Maybe the PS3 looks a lot better...

Besides a blu-ray player costs more than the Wii.

Seriously, Why would you want to steel a DS to begin with. There is no resell value and it's being beat out for the 2nd month in Japan, buy none the less, the greatest hand-held. No one really wants a DS because like Marvel said the Wii is a child's system, it's not "next gen" by any standards other then the motion, but PS3 got it too. I see more kids walking around with DS's then PSP's. More teen to adults are walking around with PSP's. NO ONE WANTS TO RISK ANYTHING FOR NENTENDO! Go SONY!

Perhaps she had precious file stored on the HDD. I just filmed an amazing Escrima demo, nailing a difficult sequence perfectly, on Eyecreate. If something happened to my PS3 before i backed that up i would have started WW3.
There's a morale in that kids. Back up your stuff or you may go homicidal. lol
