After 48 hours or even 72 hours of frequent armed robberies across the country , one must wonder when we are going to have our Egyptian vigilant Superhero , that fights crimes and saves the day if the police is incapable of doing its job.
From two days ago in Sharm El Sheikh an armed robbery happened in a currency exchange office where the thieves killed a French tourist in their escape. The crime is extremely dangerous and could affect a whole season in Sharm without doubt yet despite its dangerous impact there was nothing about it as it should in the media !! Anyhow I present my condolences to the French tourist’s family on behalf of many Egyptians
The MOI announced today that the police managed to arrest the thieves and released a clip from the currency exchange office’s surveillance camera showing the theft itself.
One must wonder if Sharm El Sheikh was only Safe when ousted President Mubarak used to spend most of the year there !!
Now today was a day some Egyptians felt that they were living Chicago in the 1920s especially in Cairo !!
HSBC branch in New Cairo was robbed by an anonymous masked gang wearing galabiyas and Palestinian Scarfs. They stole about LE 800,000 and ran away in some back SUV. The eye witnesses said that they only took ten minutes before leaving the scene , nobody was harmed except few injuries . According to news reports one scarf was found in the scene and it is believed to belong to one of those thieves. Already I do know how that gang escaped as the ring road was like hell today , in fact I do not know if they have been arrested or not yet as we got contradictory reports.
What is unique about HSBC theft is that the employees working in the building in front of it filmed the escape of that gang.
For sure HSBC surveillance cameras filmed the theft
Anyhow this was nothing besides the theft of AMANCO security vehicle that was transferring more than LE 6 million in Helwan city in one of the biggest armed robberies in Egypt. It is not the first time AMANCO security vehicles are being attacked by the way. The police announced that it arrested one of the suspects in this crime.
As usual the two teams of revolution supporters and haters go to their seats and accuse the MOI and the revolution respectively in a silly way. The revolution supporters went to the extreme and accused the MOI of standing behind these crimes in an attempt to scare the public from the revolution while the revolution haters on the other extreme put the blame on the revolution.
Three shocking thefts that do not surprise me with the lack of the general security and the spread of arms. I am shocked at how fragile the police is , I do not understand how violating the basic human rights from their point of view would lead to security !!
The best thing I have heard tonight was that as the Egyptian protesters are commemorating the #Jan25 Revolution , the thieves and thugs commemorate the lack of security resulted from the disappearance after the #Jan25 Revolution. Another funny thing I have heard today was that we have become like the States for now , we got armed robberies !!
