Today, I was looking at the map on my phone whilst walking down a street. I heard the sound of a bike behind me so I moved to let the cyclist past. He snatched the phone out of my hand and sped off. FML

If that were the case, pedestrians would need plates too wouldn't they? The only reason cars and motorbikes have them is because they're deathtraps.

Sorry but you're fucking stupid if you think someone deserves to have their phone stolen because they were looking at a map instead of being lost so they could make sure there weren't any phone stealing bikers around.

I agree with #11. Phone or not, the thief was coming from behind so either way OP was kind of screwed. She doesn't have eyes on the back of her head. Using a phone as a map is using your resources; in my opinion she didn't deserve it.

this may have been an opportunistic crime. the phone must have been clearly in view. op wasnt paying enough attention to her surroundings and the asshole snatched. There's been a few crimes like these mainly purses and handbag.

as a driver I see people walking around glued to their phones and tech gear, even crossing the road without looking.

I once saw someone on his mac book at a bus stop in the middle of the night using it as a camera!!?

fact is there will always be crime and you have to do your part in protecting yourself and preventing it from happening to you. lets hope you get your phone back and learn from this.

When you use your phone it is always going to be in clear view ...

#19 Makes a very valid point. Do not make yourself into a target and you are much more likely not to be. Mostly no one deserves to have their phone snatched up like that, though.
