Instant retribution

A guy stole a motorcycle, only to have it brake down just up the road. Whilst he was trying to get it going, truck came along and the trucks mirror whacked him in the head, killing him instantly. This happened at night on a country road.
Karma?

Seems like it. I do feel sorry for the truck driver, though.

Was the mirror on the truck damaged?

Damn, that really sucks!

Just think how much paperwork the driver had to do. Probably lost a good 4 hours off his clock and wasn't able to deliver the load on time. Very sad

Imagine if this happened here in the USofA, lawyer up buddy.
Sue the owner of the motorcycle for negligence of leaving said motorcycle unattended.
Trucking company for owning truck and hiring driver.
Manufacture of truck for having mirrors placed low enough to hit pedestrians.

Stealing is not normally considered a capital offense in most countries.

Like the others here I feel for the truck drive and have no sympathy for the thief. Matter of fact I am glad the thief got whacked in some unusual fashion.
