"You're just ashamed because you got caught!"
Exactly.
I was not ashamed of stealing food from convenience stores (yes, I had a list of childish rationalizations) until this grotesquely shameful video showed up in front of thousands of people. That did it. That sure did it.


well, I will always give credit where credit is due. at least he admits it.

this is one of those 'you can't un-ring that bell' moments and the internetz will continue to have its way with him. so many youtube channels have millions of views/followers it just simply won't go away...just like Porsche girl (and if you look it up I will warn you, it's very graphic) and the parents of Porsche girl tried to make it go away...it will never go away.

stuff like this tends to alter your life from now on. I hope he gets the help he needs.

Maybe Bleyseng has a point. From now on all my customers can walk out with whatever they want as long it is under $5.


California voters passed a law that is encouraging shoplifting.

Did you read the entire article? Part of it was the cops saying they didn’t want to devote the resources to it. In my town that means they are too GD lazy to enforce existing laws.

Crime went up everywhere in the country during that period, so what happened in California is no different than what was happening nation wide. All sorts of crime also doubled during the years of the Vietnam war but the war mongers in this country would rather blame social programs and such verses the war machine.

George - the shop makes $ from Youtube. I guarantee this kid has a workshop dedicated to making these vids. All the pics of past offenders on the wall. Part of this kids day is going through all the vid captured everyday to see what they missed. For as popular as the channel is you bet your sweet arse he is combing through the tape and keeping tabs on all the players. Before Collins second offence, Im sure he was just one of many first timers not worthy of a second post. Getting nabbed a second time Shocked - I bet my left testy put him in a top 10 for this guys vids. The second time around once you've been shamed once is at a whole nuther level.

Im seriously depressed at the moment. My cheese stick and Ice cream samich commodities took a dive recently. Evil or Very Mad

Guys,,this is his web site.

There is plenty of excoriation on the samba, and there is no point in p***** on him on his place of business.

I hope he deletes everything related to this here as he moves forward , including my post here.


Jesus talked to me last night and asked " how many of us have signed/ received a bill of sale for a Vw less than what we paid to steal taxes?"

Anyhow,I'm trying to salve my anger and hurt with humor , the great medicine of our time.

Maybe there could be a new generation of mobile courses:

OK, but none of that has anything to do with THIS. How many YouTube influencers have been caught cheating and embellishing?

Again, not saying that's what happened here but the whole video is just too... stupid... to pass the smell test. Like I said, though, if it DOES wind up being true the poor sap should be in an institution.

Lol..... yeah dude, Im sure there is an innocent explanation for the cheesesticks in the underwear.

Or why he didnt act surprised regarding the ice cream and say wtf I only have one ice cream, the one I payed for.

I guess I feel somewhat better that he did appear to buy fuel and did buy some of the snacks. Two cheesesticks and an ice cream bar, less than the cost of a quarterpounder.

The whole thing is bizarro but... welll.... Colin has always been bizarro.

The new avatars are hilareous.

Just when I thought it would be another boring Baywindow surf session.

Plenty of time today to read all seven pages of this hen house shit. Anytime you would like to come in and tell all these people what the deal is, you’ll have a packed house, Colin.

Internment Ice Cream?

The clue was here all along, fellahs. Look at the IAC posting here... scroll down to the fifth and sixth pictures in this thread and read Merlin the Wrench’s comments on each of those two pictures (ignore JR Switchgrass and peach picking friend in first photo).

Maybe Bleyseng has a point. From now on all my customers can walk out with whatever they want as long it is under $5. They can come back anytime and tell their friends how easy it is to take stuff. No sense getting outraged. Perhaps Colin wouldn’t mind if I helped myself to items in his tool box. The same tool box he uses to make a living. He won’t miss a handful of grommets and vacuum caps. Maybe that fancy spark plug remover.

Outrage Geoff, is what my dad did to me when I stole an $8 brown corduroy OP wallet as a 10 year old. Made stealing less appealing Wink . I’m little disappointed a 60 year man with damn near a PhD in psychology from UCLA doesn’t understands what I learned at 10. Perhaps this outrage will help change his behavior.

Now I got more important things to do, like rage over in the “Gear lube”
Sticky Laughing
If you bust them for the small crimes and the word gets out, the rate of larger crimes seems to lessen. I,along with the cops, busted 3 20-something guys who stole the tip jar from my buddy’s coffee shop. I was nearly 50 at the time and that adrenaline pumped half block chase had me hurting for 3 days. My buddy Gary could barely keep his shop open and these punks stole all of his morning tips amounting to nearly 50 bucks. They had hit other downtown shops before and gotten away with it. If the bastards think no one cares, they will keep pulling escalating heists for the thrill of it.

The perp obviously underestimated the perception & talent & memory of a
driven 24 year old clerk/videographer/family store owner.
He exploited the store(twice), the store owners son exploited Colin. (twice)
Call it double karma.
Very high production quality too.

I didn't say it was right but sounds like the police will deal with it. BTW REI does just let the thieves go as its too dangerous to stop someone. Now what if Colin had run over the guy hurting him seriously! So that was really stupid to jump in front of the car over a ice cream bar

as someone who (like it or not) represents the vw community....it is a big deal. and perhaps there is a mental crisis out there with both guns and theft.

and for what it's worth...everyone would slam me, you, Glenn, Everett...anyone you can think of that did the same thing.


He represents the VW community? When was THAT vote held? I tend to think he represents himself.
