back in my poker playing days, this happened at one of the places where we'd play. of course, it all could have been prevented if the jackass who hosted the game would have locked the door.

The 13 victims - ranging in age from 26 to 34 - were not completely forthcoming with police.
The man who tried to pull his gun would only identify himself as "Pain."

He forgot to deny any connection to the mafia what-so-ever after every noun.

"Two gunmen, in no way associated with the mob, interrupted a completely legal card game at a legitimate Italian social club... according to Officer Amina Greer, totally not a mafia liason."

When asked if he was upset by the robbery, once of the victims replied, "I don't get mad. I get...stabby."

Armed thugs robbed a bunch of armed "protection specialists" and not one got shot? That's some professional respect, right there!

Everyone knows, all you have to do is request a "Professional Courtesy" and everything goes smoothly.
Wishing the robbers all the best.
Pretty surprised this was reported, unless the robbers clipped a patrol car on the way out and took a pinch for bad plates or some such thing.
again, best wishes and good luck.

Went to Chicago to visit a friend and see his college football game back in 80's. While he and his Roomates were dressing after the game, myself and a friend got an early start on a case of Little Kings that we brought with us back at the apartment. THEN we went to Rush Street, then later to a party at the home of a girl whose father was 'Connected'. I walked in, sat down and puked all over the floor. A month later 2 men came to my parents home 300 miles away with the cleaning bill to collect.

If you navigate around the corner you can see a few luxury cars/SUVs and a big unmarked van.

I'm thinking someone heard the gunshot, or it penetrated a wall and hit something noticeable, causing a neighbor or passer-by to report it.

In the good old days, that section of the city, over by Wright juco, was the only Republican-voting sector of the city. They didn't get their roads repaired from the war to the late seventies. Looked like the moon.

I'm hoping the robbery was set to the 60's R&B sounds of the Chantels or the crooning of Bobby Vinton.

Or "Layla" by Eric Clapton.

A month later 2 men came to my parents home 300 miles away with the cleaning bill to collect.


On a different note, I worked for a company that had a warehouse and rail lines in Gary, IN. On a trip up there the facility manager took me out to a company function. This happened at a bar in the middle of nowhere. But inside the bar it was better than most bars I've been in. Some of the people I met there gave the impression of "connected" and it was a very surreal experience. In there it was like anything goes and cash was floating around like nothing. That's the only time I've ever hung around people like that.

A couple of years later it turned out the facility manager was taking a cut of the materials (copper) coming in and selling it off. This wasn't a small amount, but rather to the tune over $3 million in copper missing. I ended up having to use the installed surveillance system to find out when these materials were loaded. IE, when 18 wheelers showed up at 4 AM and loaded when no one should've been there. The FBI got involved because the theft was from a Foreign Trade Zone. Any theft that occurs there is prosecuted the same as if you robbed a bank.

I ended up leaving that job shortly there after and got an interesting call a few months later. The FBI called and said I was going to have to testify that the recordings I made were authentic. They were going to fly me out in a few days. That was quite a story I got to tell my new boss.

In the end they didn't need me because they case was sound enough and the defense didn't try to challenge the recordings. Here's some info on it if anyone's interested. It looks like this case is still making the rounds in appeals.

If only the victims had been armed, this crime never would have happened, because nobody is stupid enough to try and rob someone who's packing, right?

Back when I was in the army, I was on a mission in Macedonia. We were stopped at the border of Bulgaria for a few hours, just waiting.  There was a little shop across the way from where we stopped, and we decided to grab some food and soda.  While I was inside the store, this Russian guy covered in tattoos decided he wanted to talk to some Americans, and he had his own translator with him that would also do everything for him (bought and served him his food, pulled the chair out for him to sit, etc..). The tatted up guy even offered to pay for all of our food and drinks.  It was kind of a surreal experience to be talking to someone seemingly high up in the Russian mob.

/I always thought he was talking to us in hopes of getting a guy on the inside of the US Army.
//None of us were that stupid to agree to something like that, though.

In south Philly there was this restaurant I had been to that suddenly misteriously half burned to the ground.

A week later it finished suddenly misteriously burning to the ground.

I've heard a couple of other similar stories from co-workers who have traveled to Eastern Europe on business.

In one case the story seems as if the guy was just bored so he decided to show some tourists a good time. Apparently he was a nice guy once you got past the almost certainty that he had murdered his way to the top of his organization and maintained his place through brutal means.

In the other story the guy was clearly looking for an angle to do some extortion. Trying to set the 'wealthy' foreigners up with women and the like.

Of course I wasn't there for either of them so take both with a grain of salt but it seems as if you are an obvious outsider then you WILL be noticed and you had better hope it's by the first guy and not the second guy or worse.

B-b-but one of the victims was armed. Therefore this could not happen.
