Between this and the fact he used an airgun, I have to assume he wanted to get caught.

20 minutes eating after the robbery? Unless he's goddamn retarded, I don't buy that he planned on escape.

Liquor/weed may have been involved.

If you've got nothing, jail ain't so bad.

Better than being homeless and lots of time to get healthy with medical care and education services available. Plus, it's not like the judge is gonna throw him in super max for this.

if he were high, i doubt he would have robbed the place.

That is the nastiest looking piece of chicken I have ever seen.

Agreed. But what else comes with a Hunga Busta meal?

I think this was all planned.

Fried Chicken followed by some tossed salad.

If someone waved an airgun around near me, I'd be forced to beat him in the head with a boot, or possibly a service tray. Are we sure this is the same nation that won the Battle of Britain and kicked ass all over continental Europe against the Nazis?

Gobsmacked?

Obviously a head case if he WANTED to eat British cooking.

The man, a double glazing salesman who cannot be named, is charged with possessing a weapon in a public place, theft and using threatening behaviour in a public place.

Armed robbery not a crime in England anymore?

I think I said this in another thread, but criminals aren't exactly known for their ability to think long-term.

true. but he had what APPEARED to be a gun. that can be some hard time, armed robbery and all.

In other words, it took the police 20 minutes to arrive and more than 20 minutes for a person to eat a meal in a hurry? What is wrong with these people?

You'll see stories like these around the first snowfall. Typically it's homeless people who commit a crime then wait around because they know they'll get three hots and a cot instead of sleeping under a bridge freezing to death.

Speechless. Gobsmacked I.E someone smacks you in the gob (mouth) and you can't speak.

theshroomhermit: In other words, it took the police 20 minutes to arrive and more than 20 minutes for a person to eat a meal in a hurry? What is wrong with these people?

That's pretty quick for the British police! Usually they take hours to arrive.

20 minutes is pretty quick for someone to eat something that tastes like shiat but IMHO, I don't think he got to finish his meal as the cops turned up and arrested him.
 
2009-12-26 10:17:45 AM
He would do well in corporate America. His plan was to get some money and then get something to eat. Obviously the most cost effective use of manpower is to do them both in the same place.

Well, in all fairness, they did use the word "succulent" on the menu to describe that chicken. No one can resist the word "succulent". It's a proven fact.

They used the word many, many times. Except for the "Hunga Busta" meal. What's wrong with the chicken in that one?

Seriously, are the police just not that bright or is there part of the story missing? It seems fairly obvious to me. Get a free trip to somewhere warm and eat a meal while you're waiting for your ride...

The problem is probably is than since guns are illegal in most part of Europe many people have never seen a gun in a real life, and therefore wouldn't be able to recognize an airgun from a real one.

A "Hunga Busta" meal involving fried chicken?

There's a racially insensitive overtone here, but I'm having trouble finding it.....

Twenty years ago when I lived in Houston my roommate who was a BK Manager was robbed by a junkie at gunpoint. After the junkie got the cash he put the gun down and started counting the money on the counter. My roommate said he was 99% sure he could just reach down and pick up the gun but he decided that following the rest of his crew out the back door was a better idea. There was a donut shop next door and the Police came over and arrested the junkie while he was still counting the money.

Good times.

This article has so much win:

held up at gunpoint = waving an airgun ?

a double glazing salesman = ???

using threatening behaviour in a public place = a crime ??

nicked as he scoffs = ???

img.thesun.co.uk = chicken ?

I have an Airsoft Glock 17 (standard frame size, 9mm) that I can't tell from my real one, other than that the tip of the air gun's barrel is orange.

And it's a good thing that article had a picture of some chicken, or I would have had no idea.

stiletto_the_wise: This article has so much win:

Well, maybe the tip was painted black or removed? Or maybe people thought it was a real gun with the tip painted orange (you sometimes see that from douchebags)? Or maybe where this occurred an airgun is considered a firearm in some or all instances? Who knows...

a double glazing salesman = ???

Dual-pane window salesman; probably lost his job and everything else when the economy went south.

using threatening behaviour in a public place = a crime ??

Yes; in a civilized society one doesn't use violence or threats to solve problems - one uses words, ideas, rationality, and logic; you know, honest debate, discussion and problem solving. Maybe one day the rest of the human race will get with the program.

nicked as he scoffs = ???

captured as he ate?

= chicken ?


Seems to have the shape of chicken; looks like they "shake-n-bake" it there (why anyone would pay someone else to do that I don't know)...
