Derater - glad you got most of your stuff back.
I have to jab you a little about one thing, however:
I have a wheel gun,but I don't know about killing someone for 'stuff';wounding maybe.....
Did this a**hole bother to give you the courtesy of "wounding" you but "only" taking your screwdrivers? How about only "wounding" you by "just" taking your meters. or digicam?
No. He went for the kill shot. I feel lucky in that, while a good majority of my tools were taken last april I had another (full time) gig to still pay the bills while I couldn't pull wire.
Don't fall for the "oh, it's only stuff" routine. That's an excuse for less than immediate investigation, or for lax punishment by the courts,
"Stuff" is my Xbox or TV... my lawnmower... my cooler, my fishing poles.
The items I use in my trade are my lifeline. If anyone attempts to deprive me of the tools I use to provide for my family by force, I will do everything in my power to stop them from a) doing it to me and b)having the chance to ever do it to anyone else ever again.
BTW, if you don;t think you can kill someone, then never point a gun at 'em.
