    Violence between repo men, car owners on the rise


    things wrong here

    1) don't repo a car in the middle of the night. night=stealing
    2) if you are a repo guy, why do you carry a gun with you?
    3) the guy was filing bankruptcy, there are legal ways to get the car

    if i had to guess i would think the guy came out of the house with his gun and the repo man showed the papers and he just got pissed and wasn't gonna let them take the car, so i would think he shot first.

    You guys need to watch the Repo TV shows.

    Some will do it at anytime.. its a matter of finding the car and I would carry too. just for this reason. ... They do notify police when they do a repo..

    I have done repos before. You go at night because that is generally when people are home. The car just isn't going to be there during the day 90% of the time. If you are quiet enough about it, you can get the car and leave while they sleep, which is the most ideal repo you can do.

    Obviously, if you are cought, you immediatly identify yourself loudly and clearly, and explain exactly what is going on. Assuming you get the chance to.

    It is stupid work to do though. High risk for sure. Lots of drama and bullshit.

    pay your fucking bills. Alot of repo/tow truck drivers that work night carry some kind of protection because of asshole who dont pay bills and still want to fight to keep the car. I go through it all time with evictions. people will ruin the apartment or just wait til the sheriff comes to the door. same thing.

    pay your fucking bills dirt bags!!!!!

    edit: why the hell do you come out with a gun to a tow truck who lights i'm sure were lighting up the neighborhood.

    this is what mostly happened.

    -resident hears a commotion and gets his gun. he goes out and finds its the repo man. he threatens or shows his gun

    -tow man gets in self defense mode (especially with his son present) and reaches for his weapon.

    -the resident fires a shot either to his truck to scare him or to kill him. either way the repo man acted in self defense and to protect his son by shooting back.
    -one man down and dead ohh well tough shit. I would say the same thing if it were the repo man. when one person draws a gun you've got choices. kill or be killed.....he got killed

    the end.

    If you show up at my house at 2:30 in the morning and try to tow my car, you better have a police excort. I don't care how many times yousay you're a repoman, well, you won't have a chance, I am shooting. Fact is, if a repo is going to go down at night, it should be accompanied by an officer, otherwise there's no proof that someone is a repo "agent", or a car thief with a tow truck.

    if you pay your bills and someone shows up to take your car yeah i would come out pissed.

    if your a non paying dipshit....well what do you expect? hmmm i dont pay my bill, why is there a tow truck in my yard? yeah i thought so. and if you want to come out like a hard ass you'll either get shot or you'll shoot and go to jail for shooting someone doing there job.

    once again...pay the bills and you wont have to worry about a repo man.

    oh i know shits tough. when you fall on hard time theres nothing you can do. suck it up and deal with the facts of life. if you cant pay the bills the bank needs something back. The have job to do as well.

    just dont go waiving your gun in the air if a repo man comes for your car/house/appliances or whatever else might not be paid for.:ph34r:

    I don't have to worry about a repo man, or anyone else coming to take my shit except thieves. My point is that in this day and age it is stupid to take someones car in the middle of the night, and even more stupid to do it without any law enforcement. IMO it should be illegal for anyone BUT a law enforcement agent to take property from someone.

    If you loan someone money, and they don't pay you back on time, do you have hte right to break into their house and steal it back? No, as a matter of fact you go to jail for it. Which is where I think repo "persons" should be.
