Painful way to deter shoe theft is to stick something pointy in the display shoe, but if you aren't that nice then put to different size shoes on display and laugh at the idiots who stole a size 9 1/2 left shoe and a size 10 right shoe.

The best part with the Swedish helicopter robbery, any money they have hidden, is now useless, we changed the look of our currency and that money is no longer legal. They can only use it for fire wood.

A really cool antiklimax about the Swedish helicopter raid is that the unfound money is totally worthless. Sweden did replace their bills and coins (except the 10kr coin) with totally new ones in 2015 and 2016 and if you show up at the bank with more than 10000 SEK (About 1200USD) The bank starts asking questions.

The idea of stealing the display shoe is that the store will then put out the other one rather than breaking up another pair. They then go steal that one too, giving them a full pair of the same size.

Davvy Jannes (2 months ago)
Something one of my more eccentric teachers told us many decades ago stuck with me through life, "The notion criminals are lazy is most often wrong". The hours spent poring over schemes, alibis and contingency plans is far more than a 9 to 5 endeavour. More akin to an all waking hours obsession. I abhor thieves slightly less than murderers, paedophiles and rapists, yet I can't write them off as lazy or stupid. I mean, after all, does that preceding description not sound like the banking sector of the world? While the definition of a 'perfect' crime is one that no one ever discovers happened, not even the victim(s).
Alfa Papa (13 days ago)
BTW, I should stipulate something Russo did not have in the released version (perhaps not at all). Taxes are necessary for an organized society, Roads, Bridges, Fire Departments, etc. But taxes used to be paid via Business Profits and/or Tarriffs. The income tax did not always exist in the USA. Finally, find out how much someone on Social Security gets each year (the number is roughly the same for everyone, currently it's usually less than $20,000 per year). Then pick a military weapon, find out the cost and divide. Enlightening, ain't it?
Robert Pruitt (1 month ago)
+Daniel Southerland The people aren't static at all. When you adjust the average pay in 1950 for inflation, it works out to about $33,000 today. We're at around $56,000 today. And almost everything is cheaper as well. Food drastically so. They paid just under 30% of their pay for food, today it's just 6.2%. TV's, washer/dryer and the like were 10 times more expensive back then when adjusted for inflation.
Davvy Jannes (2 months ago)
+Daniel Southerland We are in agreement on much of how this world is manipulated. By both the illegal and legal criminals involved. With the legal variety being by far the most ruthless and lethal. While it matters not one iota, since wisdom has nothing to do with age, I do have a fair years more experience than yourself observing the machinations of the corrupt on this planet. With that age comes something you may already have discovered --- the more I learn, the more I understand how little I truly know. This next suggestion is something you might also be familiar with already, just in case though...... I think it is a recent documentary that should be watched by as many people as possible. It's called "The Spider's Web --- Britain's Second Empire" Hell, while I'm at it, here are a few more off the top of my head I highly recommend for anyone reading this; "Century of the Self" in my opinion, a 'Must' "Merchants of Doubt" another 'Must' "Blood Oil" "The Four Horsemen" "Stealing a Nation --- The Chagos Islands" Among so many other great docs. Thanks for the replies Daniel, all the best.
Daniel Southerland (2 months ago)
Davvy Jannes, crimes are things of pride. Especially well thought out and executed crimes. When one can anticipate a result or a response to a action committed elsewhere, that is a emboldenment of the mind. There are some instances in a lawful life where moves can be made in anticipation of something that will transpire well into the future. All this builds up to a point to where people must tell at least one other person of their doings. It’s one of the top reasons criminals get caught, pride of their work, their crime. As far as huge banks or government departments getting robbed of money, I have no sympathy for them because they write rules (laws) to protect their thievery. Banks and governments work hand in hand to keep the population “static”. I could write out the cycle that is completed, and the tools they use to keep people enslaved. It sounds like conspiracy theory stuff, but I’m 40 years old and I have watched my parents’ finances, some close family finances, and my own. Frankly, I’m surprised most people either don’t see it, or don’t want to see it. But the methods are hiding in plain sight.
Davvy Jannes (2 months ago)
+Daniel Southerland I also have a level of respect for the ingenuity of those examples. As do the security firms and tech companies who hire the brightest among them. Hard to believe, but it could be a bonus on a resume. Doesn't mean I have respect for selfish motives. Which is where the shark stealing is sort of a grey area for me. If true, the motives stated were pure and not selfish, if not mistaken in what little overall impact such an act accomplishes, other than a symbolic one. Where being caught might make the point better than getting away with it. Once more, if true. Rather skeptical myself.

I have told my sons: “Whenever you have sexual intercourse with a woman, you may make her pregnant, regardless of precautions taken. So don’t have sex with any woman with whom you would be devastated to have a child. Remember that would be my grandchild, and no woman should be browbeaten into getting an abortion which she doesn’t want.” Evidence suggests that they have taken my moral teachings to heart.
