Damn Pickpockets [Copy link] 中文

Rank: 4

In March 2005 one pickpocket removed my father's cell phone from his pocket and important thing is that my father is so attentive guy that back in our country he was never robbed by any pickpocket.

This proves 2 points about Beijing.

1. Beijing pickpockets are extremely good.

2. The crime rate in beijing is really low because u will never find any murder, robing etc. case in beijing. So robbers have to master themselves in one field because they can't break law and order openly. So they master themselves in picking pockets. which is a quite crime because you never know that you have been robbed until u look into ur pockets

I am always very careful with my phone and wallet when I am out . so such things have never happened to me so far. then you need to be alerted

I think because you are a local and you might recogize them. Tourist comes and goes and makes a very easy target.

Yes there are many pickpockets here, too many to count. In Spring Festival, even worse. They target backpacks especially. They work alone and in groups both.

Typical, the police want to blame you and say "your" a trouble maker. One of the laws for deporting foriegners here is if you are a trouble maker.

Not so much other crime??? Bars on all the windows. Gee wonder why.

I am not a local, and I have traveled to other places as well. and it never happened to me , bc I am always very alerted when I am out! thats it. and such things obviously have happened to this guy a lot and he doesnt seem to learn any lesson! thats why it happens again and again!
