  • You think America has got cops and robber problems?

    After reading about some american crimes and bank robbers I thought I would share a video with you of a robbery that happened in a town not far from me (within 10 miles), just to fill you in we don't often have robbers around here and you'll soon see why lol.

    Basically they robbed the jewellery shop in broad daylight in very high-vis white overalls. Then made it just down the street (not even 500 meters or so) when they stopped for the traffic lights, where they got pulled over. One of them ran and was chased for a while until he tried to take his white overalls off and got them caught round his ankles and tripped over just when a police van pulled up lol. Props to the police and survalence for getting on this so quick.

    I thought it would give some of you a chuckle at our criminals, they wouldn't last one second against your cops lol.

    You might want to give your cops more credit.. It seems they were onto the guys before they even got out of the store..

        From what I understand, the UK has a large "hoodlum" problem with kids roaming around brandishing knives and such.

          The United Kingdom (especially England) is the surveillance capital of the world. There aren't many robbers that can get away with a robbery over there. You've got like twenty CCTV cams covering a single spot on the street.

          I would be giving them more credit since you guys have such a widespread tool on hand.

            Ehh I would personally rather give up to some petty crime than have the ultimate big brother government.

            As for britain and knives, its kinda like people in the US with guns.. They just get a lot less of guns so they go to sharp and blunt objects. Improv!

              I should send a message over to my cousin and ask him how things are going in Dagenham.

                Sorry I was trying to get this across more as a light hearted joke at these fools. Although it did look like the police officers were jogging after the crook lol. I was not even aware of the amount of cameras in that town that they were able to follow them all the way lol. Please feel free to post up some more clips of idiot blunders that the crooks make I now have a craving for some lol.

                  Haha, after I watched the cops pull up along side and the robbers jump out I figured it was the end of the video and switched back to this tab. I didn't even realize they were still following them with other cameras!

                    In America both the cops and the robbers would probably have guns and it would've been a shoot-out on the streets!

                        From my understanding of the British police, the policeman who jumped out at the lights to make the arrest may not of had a gun at all. Very few British police carry guns and they are specially trained for it. British police routinely deal with all situations with nightstick and pepper spray as their weapons.

                          Seriously? I got several high school pals that are local PO's and they all have like 3 or 4 guns on them, mp5's and shotties in the trunks..all kinds of mayhem can ensue!

                            Yeah here the only actively patroling police (by that I do not mean the armed responce units) that carry guns seem to be the airport police and military base police.
