What makes you think Private companies won't commit the same violations to civil liberties?
Two things:
2) When not socially accepted, the use of force is generally a losing proposition because all of civilized society will rebel against it. It's not like the company can keep secret their identity. The rest of society will refuse to do business with them, boycott their customers, and so on. (Unless the majority wants to go back to having a government, in which case, no system can stop a majority of force from forcing its way on everyone else.)

Silk Road may be the first?

Agree with DeathAndTaxes . As long as you can prove pre-existing ownership (the police can only find something which is traceable) and have a clue on when and where the theft it happened it doesn't matter if it's baseball cards or bitcoins.

I completely agree.

The only issue is proving they were in your possession and that an actual theft occurred.

Property = Property

Then again..... The police will not investigate. The resources required to bring 'justice' in this situation are so immense, it is not even worth their time.

Heh.  You mean like Blackwater in Iraq?  I suppose that the meaning of 'civil liberties' could eventually be managed down to a point where it is OK to randomly shoot at cars for the fun of it and run down people who are close enough to the street that it is doable without swerving to much.
Blackwater was given the legal right to use force by a government which paid and protected it in exchange for that force.

Is your suggestion that Blackwater would act differently (and in particular, 'better') if they were given money by a private entity to do the same job and there were no entity to define or grant legal rights?  If that is your suggestion the balance of reason and observation seems to me to fail to support this conjecture...especially observing events in the lawless failed states such as the more recent examples in Africa.

Theft is theft. Other countries, they chop your limbs off, lucky they just call the police, here.

Don't bother with the local/state police with this one.  Contact a local Secret Service office where you (the victim) lives and ask to speak with someone in electronic crimes.  Most have a regional electronic crimes task force.  Tell them the value of the "property" stolen is X amount, then describe what bitcoin is.  Please post results.

Well. I see most of ppl still don't understand core nature of cryptocoins. In childhood they used to call mom, now they call the police. Discussing is finished.
