Joey Bosa Celebrates Valentine's Day by Getting His Car Broken Into

Joey Bosa is a bad man. As in the kind of bad man that started on the defensive line at Ohio State as a true freshman.

A different kind of bad man, one of the criminal persuasion, apparently broke into Bosa's car last night:

Yikes. And I thought some Cincinnati kid spelling out "UC" in the Shoe was poking a dragon with a stick.

I must say, I am a bit relieved Bosa didn't catch the perpetrator red-handed, because if he had, Bosa would likely be cooling his heels in Franklin County Correctional out on Jackson Pike Rd. awaiting arraignment on manslaughter charges.

In the end, the badit(s) made off with Bosa's backpack. Let this be a harrowing reminder: do not leave anything of even trivial value in your car. 

And while we're on the topic, what's up with people vandalizing OSU defensive linemen's cars?

Why would you want that? If I had means of getting in touch with Joey, I would go and replace his window for nothing. It would cost me 80 dollars and two hours of my time. Now compare that to thousands of dollars and 6 months to a year in jail...

Because that's what needs to happen to people that act like that. They deserve far worse, but I somehow doubt it would take much more than being snatched up by Joey Bosa or Michael Bennett to put the fear of God in their eyes. Maybe then you don't get repeat customers like the story below. Don't get me wrong, I don't wish he would have snapped the guys neck or anything, but if he would have snatched him up and called the police, I would be more than thrilled.

People like that will wilt away in jail, be put into coffin or die on the side of the street sooner rather than later anyways, so what is the point to put your self in a bad position? And do you really think a starting D-end for us is going to simply "snatch him up and wait for police"?....ummm I dont see it going that way

Gm3jones, without personally knowing Joey Bosa I don't know what he would do in that situation. I do know people that would do exactly that though. I played high school ball with a guy that went to play defensive tackle at Kentucky and that's exactly what he would have done. That's just the type of person he is. The biggest complaints his coaches at Kentucky had was he was too nice. They thought he would have been a lot better if he was meaner. Every person handles situations differently. That's what makes people unique. Regardless of what would have happen, what I stated above is still what I would have liked to see happen. Maybe I'm wrong for the way that I think, but that's still how I feel about it.

You are probably right. I guess I was just thinking about what I would do. My bad

When were those days?  I've been on campus for (does math, holy crap!) almost 20 years and we've always had petty crime like this that could be easily prevented by leaving nothing in your car, not leaving doors unlocked, not leaving computers unattended in the library, etc.

It's like Gunny Hartman says in Full Metal Jacket

"Private Pyle, if there is one thing in this world that I hate, it is an unlocked footlocker! You know that don't you? If it wasn't for dickheads like you, there wouldn't be any thievery in this world, would there?"

Thieves are gonna steal, or try to, whether they can see anything of value in your ride or not.

There is a tried-and-true, historically proven, 20/60/20 rule in the loss prevention circles: 20 percent of people would never steal anything even given the chance, because they are constitutionally opposed to theft or have been properly and sufficiently frightened by the possible negative outcomes of being caught; 20 percent more will steal irrespective of anyone's looking or not because they are constitutionally unopposed to stealing and do not care about consequences which, to them, are less objectionable than the perceived benefit they receive from stealing; and the 60 percent in the middle, if they get to the point where they believe no one is looking and the opportunity presents itself, will steal because they perceive that the risk of getting caught is low relative to the benefit they'll receive. We can do something about the 60%, especially in the campus area where the perceived risk of getting caught is low, but there is 20% (think about that - 1 in 5 people you see walking the streets at night) that are gonna steal no matter what you do.

 

This is partially why it pays to have auto and renter's insurance, unfortunately.

The only thing that's new in the world is the history that we have forgotten.

The scary part is that from that math only 1 person out of that 5 wouldn't steal from you.  I've only stolen one thing in my life.  I was like 16 and it was a dungeons and dragons figurine.  I felt so terrible I came back the next day and returned it and left the money for it anyways.  I really really can't stand thiefs.

Hmmm ... maybe 20% of people wouldn't steal because they were brought up right and have a strong moral / ethical foundation.  Sad to think 80% of people are in at best a "grey area".  I'd like to think that estimate is too high, but maybe I'm naive..

SNG, it's sadly true and, as I said, it's proven out over time. I was shocked when I actually saw this in action - people you wouldn't think capable of stealing, when repeatedly exposed to an environment where they were convinced no one was watching, would steal. It didn't necessarily mean that the value of the item was high, just that 6 out of ten people can become morally relaxed about it. I despise thieves and theft, and in addition to being raised "right", that experience changed my views on human behavior. It's sad to be that way, whether the percentages are off or not, but I am.

TCOB_6's picture

You're probably right Tommrkr. I guess I was thinking of the area I grew up in when I was younger. I remember when I was a kid and most houses in my town never did get locked. The majority of the time the keys were left in cars as well, without having to worry about much. Those are the times I was referring to. My old man always told me, the only thing a locked car door gets you is a broken window. He still lives by that motto to this day. He says he'd rather replace the stolen stuff without having to clean up the glass and pay to replace the window too. May not be correct, but that's how he feels about it. Seems like the only thing a lock does now a days is keep honest people out. It sucks, but that's the world we seem to live in.

I seen this exact scene several times when I was in the Marine boot camp. The DI actually found the foot locker next to mine unlocked and he threw  the contents all over the barracks and then beat the crap out of the guy whose locker was unlocked and made us do squat jumps for 10 minutes. I had my combination locker set on the last number if he just pulled it down it would have opened I was dead.LOL

I ask the same question as you TCOB_6. What is wrong with people these days? I am from Marion and this city is nothing like it was when I grew up here. Its really bad here (if you watch the news then you know about whats going on here in Marion). I mean you cant even walk down the street without having to watch your back. Hell these people will break into your car for your $.27 sitting in you cup holder. And you definitely dont go out when it gets dark. Its a very sad place here now. And a very bad situation/epidemic thats going on here. I wish that these people could get the help that they need. My wife and I are starting to count down to the day that we will be leaving this open sore of a city; all we are waiting for is for our kids to graduate. But these people (in Columbus and Marion and everywhere) who have to break in and steal to get their FIX will have their karma someday and I hope soon

There is an old urban legend about a guy in NYC.  After having his car radio stolen a couple of times, he gives up and simply puts a note inside the windshield that said "Don't bother breaking the window, the radio has already been stolen".

One night he returns to the car and find the window broken yet again, and inside a note saying "Just checking."

gm3jones's picture

Haha good story man. I did one better though. I put my radio in but behind the basket that it the radio sat in (to mount to dash), I put around 6 or seven razor blades behind it so when you tried to yank it out, it would slice you wide open.... Need less to say, one day I had blood all over my car...

Ha that is a good one.  Kind of reminds me of the old joke, a guy walks out to the parking lot where his car is parked, see's that it has been smashed into, but breathes a sigh of relief when he sees a note on the windshield.  He picks up the note and reads it.  "The people who saw me hit your car now see me writing this note.  Unfortunately, I am broke and have no insurance, sure hope you do though.  Have a nice day."

Bosa would likely be cooling his heels in Franklin County Correctional out on Jackson Pike Rd. awaiting arraignment on manslaughter charges.

Us locals refer to it as 'the workhouse' or just 'Jackson Pike,' so feel free to call it that in the future.

I went to Kent State and saw him when he played for Akron.   It took me a second to get it, but every time he touched the ball, the crowd shook their keys!  It was freakin' hilarious.  Even when I was at Kent State, I was 100% Buckeyes.  But it was fun to be there during the Antonio Gates era and the Elite 8 run!

I had a large rock thrown through my driver side window so that someone could steal approx. $1.45 out of my tray while I lived on W. 8th. There is a Taco Bell nearby and 6 months later I had to be removed from the house because the police said there was a meth lab in the apartment complex next to us. Apparently someone was hungry and needed a taco after some late night meth making...

I can almost bet that both, Bennett and Bosa's cars were broken into by my old little juvies I used to work with that were from Columbus. They always talked about, "hitting licks" as they called it.  I call it wanting to get your head split by stealing from 6'4+ and 270+ individuals. Not the best way to "come up" if you ask me.
