A tourist had a £115,000 watch ripped from his wrist in a "violent" robbery in Mayfair . The 55-year-old man was staying in a hotel in the affluent central London area when he was pounced upon by three men, police said. During the attack in Berkeley Squar...

Makes me sick

Especially since these guys have zero empathy zero compassion. You worked hard to buy such a watch, they like it and take it. And the stab wound? They’ll probably blame that on the victim; hadn’t he resisted they wouldn’t have had to stab him. The world u...

Many years ago a guy with a knife tried to rob me. That turned out pretty bad for him because I was about to give him what he wanted when he, with my wallet in his hand, tried to stab me anyway. That was not his best move of the day so to speak. Alas that...

No it’s quit logical

It’s logical to avoid a place where something bad happened; that’s human nature. Same as after a burglary in your house you better move coz it never feel the same again. Back then I just was lucky, the guy unlucky. He had his change to walk away with the ...

I've a dim memory of walking a Kuwait City sidewalk . . .

. . . and seeing street vendors selling gold jewelry and coins. This was ~ 1966. Don't know if trends have changed since, but I was impressed by the orderliness of Kuwait back then. I'm sure penalties for criminality were a, if not the , primary reason. A... 

Not just Kuwait

All the GCC

Kuwait City, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, and other GCC capital cities always felt safe to me

But from what I saw of the average pedestrian, they were workerbees (Indian, Asian, etc) who were there to work, make money and send $ back home to their families. They wanted NO part in anything illegal which would jeopardize their working status - and y...

So sad that one cannot wear the fruits of his/her labour.
