Father Stabs Thief to Death After Tracking Him with Find My iPhone

Posted by · 23929 views · Translate
After tracking his son's stolen iPhone through Find My iPhone, Derek Grant ended up stabbing and killing the thief who robbed his son at knifepoint, in self defense.

Jordan, 20, was initially robbed of his iPhone at knifepoint. He went home and told his dad, Derek Grant, who proceeded to locate the stolen device through Find my iPhone. Grant and his two younger sons aged 16 and 17 confronted Patrick Bradley, a thief who had a significant record for violence.

Grant demanded Bradley hand over the phone but instead Bradley stabbed Grant in the left eye. Grant retaliated by grabbing his own knife he brought for safety and proceeded to stab Bradley multiple times, ultimately killing the robber.

Father-of-four Grant was arrested and later said: “I wish to declare for the record that at the time of this ­incident, I was acting in self-defence.”

Grant originally faced murder charges, but prosecutors accepted his guilty plea to the reduced charge of culpable homicide. His sentence has been deferred until September 1.

And now this man receives a 6 year prison sentence! Sad! Sad! Sad! Blinded for life, he and his family emotionally scarred. The scumbag thief with a history of violence deserved to be wiped off the face of my planet and shouldn't be sharing my air! Mr Grant should be congratulated. Not oppressed!! I salute you sir.

I got my phone stolen a month ago and went to the police with a known location via Find my iPhone. They did ABSOLUTELY nothing! This is clearly the only option. He got stabbed in the eye, and acted in self defence. Good on him.

Guys they obviously arrested him because they are wondering why did he bring the knife with him, now I know he said for self defense, but they are thinking why didn't he go to the police? Why didn't he show the police and let them track him down with find my iphone? Why did he bring a knife with him? If you add all those questions it would make him seem like he was going to kill him. Plus it is illegal to bring a knife, so they are thinking he was going to kill him and retrieve the phone.
