(Click2Houston)   Lady conveniently calls 911 to report a gunman at a Houston movie theater, while armed robbers are just down the street making a grab and go at Jared. Awwwwww, they went to Jared   (click2houston.com) divider line 11

serpent_sky: As plans go, that's really not the worst I have ever heard.  Especially when the country is in a near-constant panic about shooters right now.


Half the shiat would stop, I think, if we stopped acting like frightened children and stood up and stopped letting these asshats rule us. It's the same thing with the terrorists in the middle east: They win and stir up shiat because we react.

Stand up to a bully, and he'll back off. If we stand up to criminals and take an active role in defending ourselves and our communities, they'll back off.

From my own consumer experience, I would strongly suggest that anyone in the market for an engagement ring, wedding bands, etc. should consider Blue Nile.

They will sell you loose diamonds (LOTS of stones from the very affordable to the expensive), and every stone is GFA verified, etc. If you want them to set the stone, they will but it is not forced.

I loved the stone and used their setting...later when I had to sell it (broken engagement) I got a LOT of my money back simply because the stone had good papers. I don't think you're going to get that return on your investment from a Jared, etc. ring.

meerkat: They robbed a Jared's?

Why?

Are there no real jewelry stores in Houston?


This! They stole a bunch of over priced yellow diamonds ("really, it's the next big thing!") and 12k gold? I'd hate to be their fence.

PiffMan420: The best part of this scam is that it completely takes the SWAT team out of the picture.


It seems that they deploy the SWAT team way too much anyway. They are just the guys who kill people when the cops don't like appearing in court.

The hell?

In this particular situation, who was the bully that needed to be stood up to? What form would this standing-up-for-yourself take?

NateAsbestos: PiffMan420: Skr: Gah f'ing "IT CAN ONLY BE JARED" jiggle. Anyways, I hear of this type of subterfuge often, the perps are usually stupid enough to place the 911 call from a traceable phone though.

Just use a disposable phone. Place the call, wipe your prints, toss the phone into a river and watch the lulz ensue.

You want a serious farking distraction to commit a crime, calling in an active shooter or a hostage situation at a public place during the holidays will do it.

Or a pay phone.


A what?

You're supposed to divert the cops farther than a block away.

I'm shocked that people don't think of doing it more.  When I daydream about robbing a bank, part of the imaginary plan was calling in active shooter on the other side of town 5 minutes prior to moving in.

Heh. That's pretty clever.
