OMG i'd just popped down to my local supermarket to buy some bits and bobs when i was baout 5 meters from going through the front door i notced 3 men dressed all in black faces covered with balaclavas, 2 holdinh macheties and one with a sorn off shot gun:eek:

Two girls were standing in front of me and they went round to corner to phne the police so i joned them to avoid the incident.

There was one of the securior vans outside so obvs they were going to get the money going into the cash mashines in the store.

I heard some shouting from inside, then about a minute later they ran past me and got into a car.

Pretty scary stuff, i managed to get the number plate of the car they got into and gave that to the store workers.

First time i've ever seen anything like this

Hope no one was hurt. I haven't seen a shotgun or any gun in real life, and imagine i'd probably faint or something if i did see one - especially one used like this. :lol:

Anyway, i think you should talk about this a much as possible, just so you can vent and calm down quicker.

Yeah its the first time i'd seen a gun. I didn't notice it untill they were running away really, just saw the huge knives when they were going in and thought.

'Get the fuck out of here'

I don't think anyone was hurt at all, just people in shock i would have thought. By the time i left the police were there sorting it out. Hopefully as they have the cars number plate and colour/model they should be able to catsh, although i'm pretty sure they will change cars somewhere.

Well done for you having the common sense to firstly stay out of there & also to get the police & number plates etc :yeah: I think a lot of people would probably freeze & forget about getting all that kind of stuff in the heat of the moment

I was robbed at gun point in a barbershop in Harlem a few years back...A hispanic dude came into the shop..asked a question then walked out...it was about 9pm and for some reason I felt uncomfortable...next thing I know...he came back in...and turned the lock behind him and said...everyone to the back...I was so shocked I could not move...and that when he raised the gun and said...move to back and lie on the floor...He led us all to back...we layed on the floor...he started going through our pockets...took all my bling...and the money in pocket...It was the day before Summer Jam...a annual Hot 97 concert so I had just baught a hot new outfit for the concert...he too that too...:bigcry: ...right before he left...I heard a gunshot...and the guy that was right next to me sort of screamed...The guy had shot him...When he left...I was the first one to the phone and called the cops...I could barely stand up...it really hit me when all the police cars screeched to a halt infront of the barber shop and crowed started gathering...To this day...I wont sit in a barber shop in the hood...:scared:

First I'm shocked, gun violence in Europe? I thought that was an America only problem? :confused: :tape: ;)

Secondly, I'm glad that you were able to notice what was going on before entering the store and that you had enough wits about you to get the plate number. Good Job! :clap2:

These things keep happening to me? Its the first time in my life ive witnessed a crime.

I was so annoyed that i didn't have my mobile phone with me. One of the few times i've left my house without it. I could have phoned the police straight away gave them the number plate and said go get them.

The car was probably stolen BUT with all the CCTV cameras the guys could have been caught.

I thought i'd been very calm, my heart was going quicker but i felt calm and collected.

Hope the guys get caught now.

It just makes me either (i) doubt the veracity of the account; or (2) wonder how the poster got themself into that position. Maybe it says something about who they are?

Is that because you've never left your house? Because you live in a very safe area rather than a majour city? You don't think that you attracted the crime to you, right? Usually we don't blame the victim, or? :confused:

The veracity of the account isn't all that doubtful. They way it was told was pretty genuine. Things happen to people for a reason, there is always a lesson to be learned, but you act as if he continually gets robbed, which was clearly not the case.

It might not be entirely doubtful, but there is nothing to lead one reasonably to either believe or not believe this anonymous post on the internet.

What you mean is that SOME things happen for a reason. to illustrate that let's look at what happened to me yesterday. I came out of my house and saw enormous rat flattened on the street. Why did I see it? cause it was there. Nobody ran over the rat so I would see it, it just happened. it was happenstance, not part of a grander scheme. Some things happen for a reason and some things dont.

It shows that I learn from new input and information, I synthesize it and then grow from it, and later, use it to analyze new information for ... the sole purpose of clearly understanding things the best way I can.

If I had meant some, I would have typed that word. All things happen for a reason, some hold more significance than others maybe.

That is one way of looking at it. To me it came across as jumping to conclusions without knowing the facts.

but of course, you never do that, right? :lol:

At least one poster told me repeatedly that mean people who hurt others are to blame for the bad acts, not the victims. But then a guy like you come along and says that the victim should ask themselves why things happened - in essence you blame the victim. Except when it's this other poster and not me. :o

Running into a store where a armed robbery to save the day, is STUPID.

Now where did I say I never did that? I am actually quite good at filling in situations and getting things the wrong way, mostly causing bad feelings for myself.

I also did not say the victim was to blame. I said there is a lesson to be learned from every situation.

Of course i leave the house, i'm in uni in Manchester in the UK which is a pretty big city in the UK. Home though is the country side in north wales so i don't come into contact with a lot of crime there.

I think i was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. I go to this supermarket 2/3 times a week to buy something cos its a 3 min walk from my uni house and i've never seen anything like this there before. I have heard of some guy going in there bout 3 years ago with a knife and making a mess, no one was hurt though.

No of course i have heard of crimes happening where i llive before but this is the first crime i have seen with my own eyes and have been telling other people about it.

I live in the student area of Manchester and girls seemed to get raped here all the time, at least 1 every month. But i've only heard about them.

I can't remember any of my friends saying they saw something liek this no.
