I for one, find Craigslist somewhat a problem child, seems as if there are a lot of people using it to do things that are against the law. Who is enforcing that web site anyway??

should all be put in jail for stealing --- you would have to be an idiot to read something on craigslist and trespass and steal items from a house.

Not, these people most likely ARE idiots --- especially trying to hide behind craigslist to as an endorsement of their thievery.

Would you want to go before a Judge with that excuse?

is not to blame

if you have ever offered anything for "free" on craigslist, then you know what sort of goofballs you are dealing with.

like a craigslist posting gives you the right to steal from someone.

that man should of wrote down there license plate numbers and turned them in.

I'd put up a reward and start prosecuting anyone that STOLE from this man.

If Craigslist isn't to blame then tell me why it was on there that these people got the address and all the information they did to go take all the persons personal belongings, I am sorry Craigslist is to blame as well as the idiots that took everything they could possibly load up and get away with, those who do not return his belongings should be jailed and prosecuted!!!!!!

MY question remains: Who is watching over Craigslist to prevent these idiots from doing what just happened with this, it should have some regulations????? What are they and who if any??? It was just a week or so ago that someone tried to sell a baby on graigslist, come on, shouldn't someone be monitoring this stuff?? It is becoming a website for sicko's
