Aren't there laws that basically dictate if you are seen to willingly rid yourself of something that it cease to be yours? Finders keepers, possession is 90% of the law kinda stuff?
I think that was BS. Homie threw it away. Its not his anymore.
That's not how things work legally. Finding a sack of cash on the side of the road, or someone's wallet in the mall does not make it yours.
Finders keepers has no legally defensible basis whatsoever.
Why is the fan a douche? Easy. Jacobs needed that helmet to get back in the game, he could not play without it. The fan keeping the helmet is basically direct interference with the team's ability to play the game.
This is different than a ball or a towel...it's expensive, and critical equipment that is most likely tailored to Jacobs.
