Just for the record I have never heard of Oakland musical artist David Deporis who passed away at age 40 when he tried to recover a laptop that was stolen by a thief at a café in Oakland on Thursday. Not to second guess the motives of Deporis who attempted to recover his laptop that was stolen by a thief at a café in San Francisco by chasing the thief who entered an auto. Deporis then was dragged down the street as the thief and the driver took off with the stolen laptop. Deporis died in a hospital in Oakland from his injuries. The rule of thumb is that something of value is stolen from you, never attempt to stop the robbers since your material devices you can replace, but not your life. The police in Oakland are looking for the suspects at this time. It is a shame that a musician died in the prime of his life.

Everything can be replaced but your life.

I have heard of musician deaths from obsessed fans like John Lennon and Selena but never losing your life trying to prevent an object that you possess ending in a rub out,

What a shame that Deporis made a huge mistake in going after the thief. Yep, just let the robbers take what they want and let the police handle it.

That is a rule where I used to work at Domino's Pizza. Do not try to be a super hero. The company can lose a pizza or auto but not an employee.

Guess that musician was poor as anything, so the loss of his laptop could make or break him. The poor man!

They said he was one of the good guys who plays music that was not offensive but came from his heart.

@YrNemo I know what you mean. All the sports show play for music is that dark musical garbage.

This is so terrible. No one should die in this manner.

I know what you mean. John Lennon was shot by a crazed fan who was jealous of his success and the person who stole David's laptop must have jealous of his fame as well. Why the good artist die young is a mystery to me.

Maybe he was a local artist in the Bay Area and not a mainstream artist.
