These types of crimes leads me to an age old question? True, it's our system of law, not justice.
Who is the lower form of life? Chose only one please.
A. The scumbag low life that commits the act of violence.
B. The criminal defense scumbag lawyer who knows his freeloading client is guilty, yet does everything in his bag of legal tricks to get his twin off or lesser sentence.
C. Both A & B

Too many crazy people...if you want to see a phone returned, drop it off at the phone store (AT&T, Verison, etc.).

I would have done it in the restaurant.
My brother, who lives at a local homeless mission, lost his minute phone on the bus one day. I called the number until someone picked it up - it was a guy who heard it ringing on the bus. The bus driver was going to make him leave it with him, but the guy told him that I was asking him to meet me. He agreed to get off the bus & only asked for a few bucks for his trouble (for getting off his ride home). I met him in front of a busy supermarket while it was still daylight, & gladly gave him $5 bucks for his trouble.

Sorry, I'll disagree with you... Our system of justice is the finest in the world.

Throw it in a mailbox and let the "feds" deal with it.......... Even the decent pickpockets use the feds (mailbox) to return stolen wallets after they take the money and/or credit cards.

I would say that the prosecution part of our justice system is great, the concept of innocent until proven guilty is definitly the way things should be. The parts that are messed up are dealing with them after convicted. Too light of sentences, cush prisons that give no incentive to not repeat offend, etc...

Be awear, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.
Why do those elected to positions of power than work so hard
to deny those same opportunities to the same people who empowered them

Very sad state of affairs when one has to weight safety and life against a act of kindness.

Sounds like she would have been attacked if she hadn't taken the reward. Is it really an act of kindness if you accept a reward?

I've found a few phones/items and have always returned them. Even when offered reward, I said no. If the situation is reversed, just return the favor.

Kind of hard for him to read that you have his phone!
