I bet 8ts a cash business and he shows no income.


Nice ice cream pic Glenn under you screen name! LMAO! Very Happy

Just trying to show my support.

Seriously, I could just imagine what other harmless things he might do if he thinks he won't get caught.

I think the people that know Colin and his politics believe he justifies it in his head as stealing from a big corporation, not a gas station or small business owner. We've all read Colin's posts about corporate greed, corrupt politicians, the unraveling of American values, morals and ethics in business.

Then this video shows up. Just no words...

I've read many of the comments on Youtube about him being a thief. Many are stereotyping us VW owners as hippies and thieves. Nice.. real nice.

Well, this doesn't mean his wealth of VW knowledge is ruined too.

He just made a stupid mistake like I am sure all the rest of us have at times in our lives.

I thought the samba was full of savages, but man....both videos have some really colorful comments.

now thanks to all of this I can't get the cheap 70's porno music with an imitation issac hayes talking about taking a big fat duce out of my head . perhaps I should eat some cheese and it will bind me up

no, but his credibility and character are dinged seeing he gets invited into peoples homes, garages and what have you. I have more respect for the freeloading vanlifers...at least they are up front about being skeezy.

Correct but he did harm the entire vw community and reinforce the stereotype that all vw people are cheap, hippies and have no regard for laws.

Btw, taking something that is not your is stealing. There's no excuse like I didn't know, be was in a f'ing store where you have to pay.

Also the fact that he hung around and read the paper tells me he didn't feel guilty. That's means he felt entitled.

That messed up.

If anyone thinks that his shoplifting escapades were limited to just the two times it was recorded at this one store in Ohio you arenít thinking clearly. Colin travels far and wide and itís my guess that he had lots of experience swiping stuff from stores for many years. It might be informative to run his background check. There might be a good reason heís been self employed for 17 years.

Very disappointing. To me this really sounds like Kleptomania:

There is a difference between ordinary theft and kleptomania: "ordinary theft (whether planned or impulsive) is deliberate and is motivated by the usefulness of the object or its monetary worth," whereas with kleptomania, there "is the recurrent failure to resist impulses to steal items even though the items are not needed for personal use or for their monetary value.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kleptomania

Not an excuse - just perhaps an explanation for what seems like out of character behavior.

As others have said, sad to see.

Also, as others have said, it really could be a mental health issue.

I'm 3/5 of the way through my program to get my Master of Social Work and become a therapist. I interned in a program last year where one of the therapists got arrested after swiping a fountain drink. He was totally open and honest with me one day as he told me the details. Long story short, he was under a lot of stress in his personal life and just got to where he felt like he deserved it.

But he came clean, saw his own therapist, and worked through all the issues the right way.

All that to say, thieves do suck and maybe Colin is just a scumbag, but maybe (dare I say hopefully?) there is more to it and hopefully this incident will help motivate him to seek out whatever help he needs, too.

And while I will now have to get used to associating all the new avatars to names, those are pretty funny!

A few years ago we had a full bird Colonel Marine Corps Officer who was getting ready to take and lead a Marine Expeditionary Force out on deployment and he was caught shoplifing STP fuel treatment and printer ink from Walmart. He had the cash in his pocket too iirc. He was relieved of command.

Sickness or mental issue? I don't know but could be. I feel sorry for Colin and wish him the best - I really do. But will I ever have him at my house again? Nope.

My 3 yr old grandson just came running out with string cheese. Surprised

Those avatars are friggin hilarious!

So I'm not sure how serious Shue's Marathon will be about pressing charges.
Aside from the video evidence (and who knows what they edited out):
-He was identified by name and "username" in the comments of the youtube video several times. And there seems to be a lot of internet chatter about the incident. (Has Colin's FB account been taken down?)
-Colin posts on his site that he passed right through that area on the day of the event, even stopping for a while to service the sliding door mechanism on his bus. He also posted where he was located at the time (Rochester NY). https://itinerant-air-cooled.com/viewtopic.php?f=78&t=13920 And after all that work, who wouldn't enjoy a couple nice, cool ice cream sandwiches?
-His itinerary is clearly posted on his website, as well as who he was (and is) going to be visiting.
-In about 5 minutes of looking through the IAC, I found a very clear picture of the bus and license plate of the person who Colin was going to be spending the day with (today, 9/21), so a location could have been easily pinpointed by people who can access that kind of info.

So theoretically, it would have been possible that he could have been visited by law enforcement today.

Donít know Colin, donít want to know Colin. He can be summarized with one word: PATHETIC.

I'm not defending Colin at all if what we are seeing is reality, but to me there are things here that just don't pass the smell test:

1. Doesn't actual surveillance video need to be embedded with an automatic time and date stamp to be accepted as legitimate evidence? None of this channel's seem to be.

2. They really seem to be more interested in building a YouTube presence- with the likely payoff- than anything else with this channel. Observe how many "Return Of The..." vids there are. This doesn't seem at all normal.

3. As commenters pointed out... ain't it odd that the same clerk was on duty both times and remembered this guy? How many hours of research did it take to go back through all these "surveillance videos" and make the match?

4. Colin's on camera and doesn't try to block the camera or hide his face? LMAO.

5. Colin is a complete fanatic about keeping that Bus clean and in top shape. Remember the holy fuck crisis when the old one got hit? Yet... he's supposedly going to risk getting this dented and blood on it?

6. As also mentioned in the comments... what clerk IRL is going to risk getting run over- or worse- over an ice cream sammich?

7. Finally- look at how many comments there are about how all the regulars have just been waiting for a new video...

Based solely on a You Tube video posted by an obvious You Tube attention whore channel... I'm just sayin' that if this were my site... which it's not... I'd tend to be really cautious about allowing the man's rep to be damaged with posts about this to his feedback to damage his business, and I'd be really careful about assuming other things like tax evasion on a public forum because that seems to be brushing dangerously close to libel and/ or character assassination until there's more corroboration to this story.

I think a public rush to judgement here could be foolish. For all we know, this YouTube shit is edited... or even staged.

Just my 2 centavos. Not wishful thinking, not a condemnation of anyone, just looking at the facts so far as they appear to a cigar smoking ape.

Or maybe it's the experience of trouser snacks.

And, do we have an approximate amount of time that ice cream sandwich was in there?
Just curious.

I don't see that - his website shows those as active unless "ii" is footnoted as canceled somewhere on his site.
